Move-In Mania: Late Night Fun

Okay, I'm definitely a little bitter after shooting this event the same day as move-in. The students today are SO spoiled with their easy uneventful move-in and all the fun activities that are planned for them.

Move-In Day 2011

I remember a time when move-in was just a little bit more hectic than it is these days. To be honest, it's WAY too organized and tame for those really crazy packed parking lot photos from way back when... the ones I loved to take. Now, the staff responsible run a VERY well oiled machine. It might be the best laid move-in plan in the country. I'm a little disappointed with that. BORING.

Darkroom

In an attempt to reconnect with "days gone by," I'll be shooting all the EKUpdate Spotlights this year on B&W film and processing them in the old darkroom in my office using the very same equipment Kodak installed in the 1960s.
