I saved a small bunch of Susans from the garden as a means to view their beauty on my desk. I decided to do a study of them one night with my camera as a way to catch a last glimpse of their life before I retire the flowers from my desk. I plan on saving the seeds in a paper bag until it is time to plant more of these wonderful flowers next year.
I used a white tablecloth to illuminate some flowers in a field. Unfortunately, I got stung by hornets twice while in the dark.
When Alexandria was walking through a field, she stumbled upon a new type of wind energy windmill!
I think this is my most technical image manipulation to date. I put a lot of hours into it and am finally happy to share it here!
Various pics of the countryside of Michigan.
A bottle study from a few hours on a Saturday. I also decided to show some of my retouching process that I do in Adobe Photoshop.
A small compilation of some of the conceptual photography I’ve done. I’m really wanting to do more before the end of the fall season.
Part of the reason I do photographs like this is to create new worlds that come into mind. I keep a notebook with all the ideas I have and pick the ones that would work best for photography.
Hope you enjoy!
I decided to do a short study of some of the forms hands can make for a mini series. A chiaroscuro effect is achieved by concentrating the light to only the hands using off camera light.
Hands are really important forms in art. A wide range of emotions can be conveyed just though the expressions of how hands look at certain times. What are the hands doing while a person is laughing? What are they trying to grasp?
Some observations of patterns of dots/forms in nature.
A double post of some flowers over the past few months.
I decided to make a coffee cup design as a study/ project over the past week. I first sketched out the design in pencil then brought it into Photoshop for the final mockup. I’m thinking about doing a design for tea lovers in the near future, so stay tuned!
