Multimedia "Small Bites" on Instagram

I capture a ton of great audio when I'm working on an article or a video project, and then I throw most of it out. It's not that the audio is unusable, there's just a lot of extra stuff that I have to edit away to get to the main point, or story, of a piece.

"Small Bites" were created because it pains me to hear a great little story (usually a tangent in a broader conversation), a quote, or some music, and then find that I have to throw it out later.

Bites are short, one minute multimedia pieces that I share on Instagram. Most are audio with one photo, but I'm expanding into short video clips as well. Here are a few of my favorites.

Recently in "Eat. Drink. Mississippi"

This week I'm catching up on long overdue blog posts! Starting with the past two issues of "Eat. Drink. Mississippi". In case you missed them, the April / May issue featured two articles of my work, "McEwen's" and "The Debutante Farmer". Here's a few of my shots from each article. Back issues are available through EDM.

I also neglected to update with my article from the Summer issue (that tells you how swamped I've been!). The June / July issue featured my article and photography of "Steak by Melissa", a new steak restaurant in Southaven. Below are a few shots from that piece. Back issues are available through EDM.

Portraits of Christy's "Little Man"

Kids are so much fun for photojournalism-style shoots! I had a blast with my friend Christy and her son, "Little Man", who quickly began showing-off his fitness routine! Here's a few of my favorite shots from our afternoon together. My favorites are the more artistic black and white shots, of course, but Christy received my standard batch of selects... which includes both color and b&w images.
