Its been just under a month since I did my last photo blog, it is very difficult to wrap my head around what I have done over the last month. So I'm going to give you some numbers, over the last month up to today I have: done 26 different photography related assignments, taken somewhere between 4500-5000 photos, charged 12 batteries, set up 9 light stands, and an estimated 24-28 hours post processing. This blog includes photos from the Outlaw Clay Race at Rockford Speedway, giant chess during shop the block, a landscape of the downtown during Independence day, volleyball at UW Health Sports Factory, face painting at Rockford City Market, Kickball at Davis Park, USSSA fast pitch at Sportscore 1, and a press conference at Rockford Art Deli.
