Following the Toledo Rockets game. I jumped in the car and made the 2 1/2 hour drive to Columbus for the primetime game between the Penn State Nittany Lions and Ohio State Buckeyes. I wandered around the stadium prior to the game to see what kind of pregame features I could find before heading into the stadium.
Once inside the stadium my goal was to make a picture that represented some of the studio images Ohio State was using for promotion prior to the game.
See the above and below image of Braxton Miller.
Here are some fun stats from the image shared on social media.

The image was also the top image shared on twitter and Facebook under trending topics.
Toledo Rockets are still climbing the AP Poll. This past weekend they were ranked 22nd after moving up three spots from the previous week. On a gloomy, cold fall afternoon at the Glass Bowl. The Toledo Rockets showed just how powerful their offense is. Quarterback Phillip Ely passed for 327 and 4 touchdown passes and even special teams got into the end zone when Chase Murdock blocked a field goal and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown.
After the game was over I had to head down to Ohio State for the Penn State game at 8pm. Be on the look out for that blog post later this afternoon.
Enjoy the photos.
The Toledo Musuem of Art has been a client for over 5 years and I absolutely love working with the creative team there. They allow me to be as creative as I like and turn a simple project into a unique visual piece of art. The Degas & the Dance opens tomorrow at the Toledo Musuem of Art in the Canaday Gallery.
Here are some image I photographed for promotional material along with a instruction poster that will be displayed in the gallery.
The Toledo Rockets have finally taken the step into the national spotlight, the program hasn’t been ranked since 2012. But with major wins over Arkansas and Iowa State, Toledo is shaking up the rankings and climbing the ladder.
It was homecoming weekend, so campus was packed and reach to bring the noise inside of the Glass Bowl. It was great seeing some old friends prior to the game. It was a beautiful fall afternoon, the kickoff was at 3pm which meant the light after halftime would be beautiful and it would allow me to chase the light, and that is exactly what I did.
A sidenote in the below images there was a female referee along with Kent State having a female place kicker.
I hope you enjoy the images and please share with another Toledo Alumni and fans.
