Skills

HTML Coding
I started coding at the end of last school year, when a friend showed me his website that he had made from scratch and how easy the code actually is compared to other types of code. 
Lightroom
This is my main Photo Editing Software. I use this to edit 90% of my slideshows and photos. It allows for simple organization and has a clean UI. The editing tools in Lightroom are easy to manage and I find the combination of power, speed, organization and overall usefulness all factors that contribute greatly to it's overall effectiveness. 
Picasa
This is my secondary photo editing software. It is less demanding than Lightroom but is chiseled down to stark functions when it comes to organization and editing. If i ever need a quick crop or adjustment for a photo, I use Picasa. I used to use this software before I used Lightroom. 
Photography
Throughout my second year of photojournalism, I have grown as a photographer and a person. I see my photos getting better and better and there is still room for growth in my third year.

Initiative

Happiness is Now: This event was special for me since it was a first-time thing at our school and it involved transporting the entire school to Buena by foot and then having a energetic display in the gym. I was also the only photographer so I was required to cover and entire event solo/

Prewitt Tennis Challenge: Mr. Geib set up a tennis challenge at the last minute in honor of Chris Prewitt. What first was offered as an invite to watch turned into a full article on the website. Since there were no writers present, I gathered some basic information and write a short blurb about the game myself. Later I contacted Geib for more information and added to the article to further the depth. 

Summary

Character

Co-operation: Under the wing of my editor, I was ready to work with him and follow his orders. Also, by being next in line for editor, I payed close attention to his methods and techniques and took any advice he offered me. Also, i found myself working a lot more with other editors or writers from the writing sections to try to get the photo that they desired or working together at an event to perfectly correlate photos to article.
