On the Side

Today I went out and shot some images just for the heck of it. I could make pictures like these all day every day. I am so drawn to them - seeming to glow from within. Its easy to forget to kneel down and take a closer look at the simple things, such as this shallow creek bed. I feel like I am most at home crawling around on my hands and knees looking through a macro lens.

Outside of the Produce Box

One of our recent assignments in studio photography was to shoot produce in an interesting way. I used club soda for some bubbles. We are beginning to learn about the 3 different types of reflection and how to compensate for them with lighting control. It is nearing the time in the semester where we are being introduced to other light sources besides hot lights (which is awesome). I can't wait!

Minds Eye

I've been looking through my images and this one keeps jumping out at me. It's so mysterious.


I'm experimenting with lighting different materials in the landscape, and last night I was trying out this large piece of thin plastic. I'm still appropriating Dianne Davis a little bit, but I feel like I'm finding my way.

This is just a test shot of the trees in my backyard silhouetted by the moon. It has been fun to see how the images turn out. I can't wait to see how this project progresses throughout the semester.

In the End

Studio Photography

This semester I am auditing a studio photography class...and let me tell you, I absolutely love it. I feel like I have learned so much just in the short few weeks that class has been in session. We are learning how to manipulate light to create different aesthetics, among many other awesome skills. You can see from these two images that I still have a ways to go, but you gotta start somewhere.
