My boss rarely says the words “use the fisheye for that.” So when she said that very thing to me last week about a challenging photo shoot at the Hinds Community College's John Bell Williams Airport near the Raymond Campus, it got me to thinking…just how much I love this lens!

Hello, I’m De’Shane Frye. I’m majoring in mass communications here at Hinds Community College. I’ve known about photography since the tender age of 11. At that age I thought, “Anyone could do this — take a camera, point it and snap a picture.” Which in many aspects is true, but not everyone can “capture the moment.” My older cousin started showing me the in-and-outs of photography at that age, but never gave me a camera. I never truly loved being a photographer — that is until I took my first photo at the age of 22.
I have had a fun time this week razzing some of my colleagues. Let me explain.
We had a super event on Sept. 26, a joint event with Empire Truck Sales and Stribling Equipment in Richland. Hinds Community College, represented by our President Dr. Clyde Muse, signed a memorandum of understanding with Empire and Stribling, represented by their CEO Jerry Swanson, to provide training at the Diesel Technology Academy on Highway 49.
Homecoming festivities Sept. 22 on the Raymond Campus brought the community, alumni and current students together to celebrate our college. Alumni Awards Winners and Sports Hall of Famers made their way to the field, followed by a performance by alumni Hi Steppers backed by the Hinds Eagle Band. The 2016 Homecoming Court entered the field and the Homecoming Queen was crowned.
Even a writer who’s usually brain-deep in career-tech and academic programs gets a little football fever every now and again.
