Emotion Assignment

My second assignment for my photojournalism class was to capture a photo that shows emotion. Many of my peers chose to photograph rallies, or events, but I wanted to go simpler. I decided to head over to Rec Skate at the university's ice rink. At the ice rink, I knew I would find a wide range of emotions, everything from frustration to happiness to timidity. The rink ended up being a great spot to shoot! I was able to follow a teenage girl and her group of friends as they spent their Tuesday evening skating. One of the best shots I got was the one below, an image of the girl and her friend recovering from a fall and laughing it off.

Keira Mccourt, 16, of Meigs County, Ohio, and Wyatt Hart, 17, of Coolville, Ohio, share a moment of laughter together after falling on the ice. On January 28, 2015, the two teens came to Bird Arena in Athens, Ohio to spend the evening at the recreational skate event with a group of their friends.
