The yearbook photos of several girls at Wasatch High School were digitally altered to cover up skin, with sleeves and higher necklines drawn onto their images, while some, like these from a page on the school tennis team, were left unaltered.

Wasatch High School’s Forrest Hill just keeps on running for me. One of my favorite photos from last year just took First Place, Sports Feature Photo, in the Utah-Idaho-Spokane Associated Press Association’s annual news contest.

What I wrote in November 2007 about this shoot:

Emery High School’s Ryne Jones flies into the end zone for a first quarter touchdown.

That was my first good shot of the game, and the last good moment for Emery, who lost to Wasatch yesterday. I know, none of you really care about the results; you are here for the photos.

Back from vacation to kick off November and it’s so good to be back taking photographs. Powerful still photographs.

Wasatch’s Jacob Salazar (25) carries the ball into the end zone with some blocking assistance from teammate TJ McDonald (44).

During halftime I sat on the grass with The Reporter, trading Titanic-related metaphors. Soon I noticed the Wasatch High School cheerleaders unfurling a banner for the football team to run through. I pondered getting up for a photo or continuing to sit. I got up, ran over, held the wide angle on the grass pointing up, and watched a throughly boring “team run out through paper banner.” Only later when I edited the photos did I realize I had a gem:
