For assignment two, Professor Collins wanted us to shoot pictures of an event to show action. I liked the challenge of showing action through still frames. It was a unique concept that, I believe, turned out pretty well.
I choose to shoot my sorority’s Bid Day, which is the day when each sorority on campus gains their new members for the year.
