Stepping it Up

After living in Columbia for four years, I’ve developed a love for a lot of events that I know are “can’t miss.” The National Pan-Hellenic Council step shows belong to that group.

Omega Psi Phi members, students and alumni alike, gather to step together during the National Pan-Hellenic Council step show on Saturday at Plaza 900 Amphitheater. Not only is this year the 100th MU homecoming, it is also the 100th anniversary of the founding of Omega Psi Phi.

I’ve photographed this event a few times before. Since it was the same day as some of my homecoming coverage, I brought along the 50mm f/1.2 lens I borrowed. Gave me a little bit of a different look than all the pictures I’ve taken at the this same event, which was at the same time of day in the same location before.

A photo gallery ran in the Missourian with some of my photos, which is good, because I always feel like there’s a lack of diversity with coverage like that, though we actually did pretty well in the many photo galleries that were produced. There were a ton of homecoming photo galleries for MU’s 100th homecoming celebration, and I suggest you check them out.
