Inauguration Close-Ups

January 21, 2009

Instead of trying to tackle the large crowd of students around the TV in the HUB, I decided to get up close. I got in touch with a student I photographed after President Obama won the election, and she let me follow her around as she watched the inauguration. I ended up with some intimate and emotional shots. A few technical errors, but overall I’m pretty happy with them.
