A childs creativity

For this project i decided to take photos of my niece drawing. Sadie is not thinking of school the next day or anything else but her art, i love this quality a child possesses. We should all take a page out of her book and take some time each day to do something to live in the moment.

These shots are taken from the other side of the window/ screen.

On Location Flash

My good friend Mark is always a trust worthy model. This is one of my favorite of the batch.
My mother at her art studio. I was happy how this turned out, another one of my favorites.

Gabe Laduke, local skatepark owner/good friend.

Self portrait..I Like the tiles in this one. This is my "Liebowitz" effect shot but i went to the extreme side of under exposing the background, i feel the low key quality adds to the photo.

Location flash is awesome, i really enjoyed working with it. I think of so many possibilities, and i still need to experiment with it.

Thierry succeeded in making catchlights interesting!

Broad Lighting

No Fill
The difference of shadow darkness between five to one and nine to one is very subtle.

Short Lighting

No Fill

Butterfly Lighting

No Fill
No Fill is definitely my favorite.

I like my flower shot for all the blackness of it. I shot without a reflector to get this effect. It is most noticeable in the big rose, it fades to black at the bottom.

I did a Stop Motion for the fruit project. I had a really hard time using the new Imovie its not the best editing.

I am more satisfied with my desert shot. Its totally true that an excellent food shot is hard to achieve. Most shots are the same and to make the shot excellent i think it takes new ways to shoot food.

I enjoyed working in the studio for this assignment. I would have liked to have a more creative shot on black, but I was short on time. I am content with the outcome of the on white shot, breaking that glass was definitely a happy accident.

Egg Project.

The saying, "Having egg on your face", is used when someone is embarrassed because of their own actions. In the above picture, Holden makes makes a fool of himself by saying something he shouldn't have to his first date, Caroline.
