november photos



Model: Jessica

First time using studio lights! This was such a fun concept to shoot. We made a makeshift backdrop in our school's drawing room, threw flour and glitter everyone, and created some awesome images! I would love to use studio lights again, as they add a totally different feel and help me achieve some things I couldn't do with natural light. It's really exciting for me to know that there's a whole side of photography (really, many sides) that I haven't even begun to explore. There's just so much to learn!

Also this month I posted one of my graphic design assignments to my facebook page, which was a super fun assignment and I really want to be able to do more creative graphic design stuff like this in the future.

Our assignment was to take a song--I chose Supercollider by Radiohead--and interpret it into a lyric poster of sorts. Of course I had to be an overachiever and make two, but it was so much fun and I learned a lot (also I should note that if you are viewing this on a MAC, it looks a bit darker than I intended--so I'll have to remember that for next time!).

Thanks to the Art Retreat, I got to create a lot of photos for the month of October. There are still more that I want to publish on the internet, so we will see if I remember that they exist at a time when I can/want to work on them (you know how that goes). But for October, I'd say it was a pretty successful month.

Soo proud of what I produced this month. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback on these two photos, and it's honestly been extremely uplifting. There are at least two more images from my shoot with Felicity and Heather, but I haven't had time to process them yet. Maybe this month! August has actually been really great photography-wise. I've gotten to do three client projects, plus begun (begin? I really can't figure out which is correct) working on a huge shoot with another client. It's been so great, and I hope to keep it up!

This month my photography has been all over the place, and I don't like it. It's not that I'm not proud of any of these pieces, it's just that they aren't my best and had I not been doing a 30 day challengeI would have never made some of these, much less uploaded them. But it's a learning process. I guess it just goes to show that there are some times in your life when you shouldn't do a "# day challenge" and I discovered that (at least for now) I am beyond that point (or sick of it, whichever way). But August has at least two photos that I am incredibly excited about, and if it all works out the way I envision, they will be some great portfolio pieces. So here's to August, I hope you hold some fantastic photographic adventures!

june photos

take me back

"take me back"





(I'll be doing another post on "gold", which will include a video and some behind the scenes photos!)

As I suspected from the beginning of the month, I didn't create as many pieces for June. But the pieces I did create I am extremely proud of. It's definitely an effort of quality over quantity, and I'll take just a few amazing ideas over a lot of mediocre ones.

These are all the photos I've posted online for the month of May. (You can click on each photo to view it on flickr.) I haven't done as much in actual shooting this month, but I'm really proud of each photo. Slowly but surely I'm learning about quality over quantity.

I also edited these photos taken by Cierra and Katja, respectively. (The one on the left is theirs, the one on the right is my edit.) I'm part of a group on facebook where people post pictures for others to edit, which is a really fun idea and a great time waster.

Right now I'm trying to find a good direction to go with my personal work. Thinking of maybe starting a series, but nothing concrete has flourished just yet. Who knows? Maybe I won't make any photos this month, maybe I'll make twenty. I'm pleased with where I am right now.
