Funny about the Nebraska thing because I never took a lot of photos back home; this started after I moved West. Are you from NE or just know people from there?

I haven't been able to do any still photography in a while (cinematography, that's another story, thankfully), so I was feeling left out...

...until I realized I have a large amount of my college newspaper photography portfolio online.

Interestingly, working for mid-sized college newspaper isn't fast-paced. There's not a lot of breaking news, and as such, not always a lot of emotional pictures to be taking. All three of my choices came from my basketball photography.

So here goes:

[image from img308.imageshack.us too old to be available]

Not sure how to describe this emotion. UNCW freshman ballers Vladmir Kuljanin and Daniel Fountain were hyped to bring some much-needed game to our bench. We were doing a story on the big shoes they had to fill, so I asked them to give me intimidation. This is what we came up with.

Exhilaration. Brett Blizzard, UNCW's star player, cuts the final piece of the net after his senior-year CAA tournament championship victory.

[image from img316.imageshack.us too old to be available]

I'm not eloquent enough to encapsulate this emotion. Tim Burnette, CAA tournament, spring 2003.

Unfortunately, I don't have my favorite (and most emotional) picture online -- UNCW center Aaron Coombs, just after sinking two clutch free throws to give UNCW the lead over Maryland in the 2003 NCAA tournament in the last five seconds and almost certainly to guarantee the win... but moments after Steve Blake hit an amazing one-handed, running, desperation three-pointer to win, 75-73. Coombs has his hands on his head, shirt in mouth, and a look of complete and utter disbelief.

If anybody went to UNCW and read The Seahawk, you may know the picture. The Star-News ran practically the exact same shot -- I was sitting next to their photographer -- if you've seen that as well.

Title: Otsukare-sama

"Otsukare-sama" is a thing that Japanese people say at the end of work. To me, this image captures that feeling of being at the end of a long day of work. I don't remember the exact settings, but the image was taken with an old Honeywell Pentax H1-a. The film is T-Max 400. IIRC, I think the aperture was f/16. The shutter speed was probably 1/125s. The setting is the annual Melbourne, FL Art Festival in 1999.

Title: Shyly in Love

This is a shot I took about 2 years ago of a friend who I was teaching photography to. I don't remember the camera settings at all. All I can say is that this is a completely candid shot.

and now, to comment.

You people never cease to amaze me! Every time there is a Farktography contest, I realize how much harder I need to work to make my photography better.

Thanks everyone for the motivation and the inspiration.

BullsEye2: give yourself way more credit mamoru that second pic is so beutifully human it made me sit back and contemplate.

Thanks for the complement. :D

Don't get me wrong. I am quite proud of many of the shots that I have taken (and the ones here are two of them). But I realize fully when seeing these threads that I have a lot of work to do. My comments about realizing how much work I have to do only serve to motivate me more, rather than cut me down. I really appreciate the Farktography threads and am very happy to participate among the greatness that is here. Even if some think (by some crazy chance) that my photos are to be counted with those, that doesn't mean I shouldn't stop striving to be better. On the contrary, IMHO.

I really do get a LOT of inspiration from these threads and am extremely proud to participate.

This is coming from a person whose life goal (well, one of several) is to be published in National Geographic Magazine.

I've sent my comments to Drew to make Farktography an official Fark thing, and I hope others do the same because these really DO do a LOT for Fark in my opinion. These are among the only threads (IMHO) where people really just sit back and appreciate things rather than erupting into flamewars.

Leaving Fort Lewis, WA for Iraq. March, 2004. Army woke us up at 2:00am to leave, so I guess the emotion is "farking tired", but one could also have "pensive", or even bring in something related to prayer. I take pictures (and shoot tanks...but I don't do that anymore), not make captions. :)

TimeCubeFan: Scudder wins!

I second that. Scudder, that is perhaps the best photograph I have ever seen portraying human emotion! So young, yet so old.

I don't care how many votes you get in the end. In my (perhaps not so humble) opinion you deserve first in this contest. Truly a magnificent shot!

And that is not to put down anyone else in this thread, AT ALL! There are many magnificent shots here, but Scudder's is absolutely perfect for the theme of this contest.

This was a little girl in Ethiopia who had been following her mother around in the fields all day. She walked up to me, watching the sun set, and just stopped with her nose a few inches from mine. She was clearly exhausted and was sniffling and clearly just on the border of tears from exhaustion. I had a little cookie that I gave her, which improved things for her a little bit, after this picture was taken.

Picture of food. Emotion: Hungry? Threatening?
 
2005-07-21 2:20:36 PM  
Change that to.. picture of the wrong.. um.. picture. That's what I get for not previewing. Someone should delete it, too. >.>

This, however, is a picture of food. With emotions of hunger or threat.

And this is a picture of an over-grown puppy. Perhaps she's feeling caught?

This third incorporates both of the previous.

In the course of going through this thread, I have literally had to look away from it eight or nine times to keep from weeping openly at my desk.

Far too many incredible pics to vote. Great work, all around.

I just want to thank everyone who voted for the picture of my nephew. There's so much talent and so many incredible photos in this thread that I'm honored to get any votes at all.

This has definitely been the best theme of the Farktography contest.

Thanks to the Farktography gang for putting this together each week.

Dusk-You-n-Me What is that, a cooler full of bile? Shot just at the right moment, I love how the falling liquid was captured.

Zappagirl, UltimateFish, Think Hawaii.. also great shots!

Jeremydragon's pic was taken in Wilmore, KY (unless there's another Asbury).
