To continue on with my yearlong project of topic-driven photography, weeks 27-39 threw even more creative challenges my way that unfortunately forced me to do some photographs outside their original time slot. Turns out, it is pretty difficult to manage personal photography pursuits on top of freelance assignments that have to come first. However, in these past couple weeks, I began to catch up in editing photographs for website posts here. To kick things off, let’s get up to speed on the third quarter of my 52 photographs:
Hiding in Plain Sight
Nikon 400mm, ISO 400, f/2.8, 1/400
Adolescent rabbits are very fun animals to play around with. Depending on their age and fear of humans, you can walk right up to one and almost pick it up before it scurries off.

Transylvania University is a very difficult institution. Thankfully, the administration usually acknowledges that. Even in the monotony-filled finals week, some relief is provided. These daily “Stress-Fest” events–which take place the weekend leading up to and including finals week–are designed to counter the stress caused from term papers, final exams, and presentations expected out of all the students. Kicking off the week is a fun event called “Doggie De-Stress”. Special service dogs specifically trained as stress-relievers (don’t ask me how) are brought in from local organizations for students to pet, play with, and occasionally take on a brief walk.
Unfortunately for me, I didn’t want dog saliva and hair all over my camera equipment, so I guess my “de-stressing” came in the form of taking pictures. 🙂 I’ll end this post with some of the pictures from the event. All photographs captured with the Sony NEX-7 and SLR Magic Noktor Hyperprime 50mm f/.95 at f/2. Shutter speeds stayed around 1/80-1/100 and ISOs ranged between 800-1600. No noise reduction applied. Also, I’m terrible with dog names, so I rarely knew what to caption these with.
