Seating

“Seating”

Along the walk, they sit.  Rows of seating, a type of rustic amphitheater.  A nice place to stop.

Week 27 (Flattery) – Proud Papa

“Proud Papa”

This week we were to attempt to imitate one of the master photographers.  I chose to imitate Philippe Halsman.  He is well known for having the most images on Life Magazine’s cover.  His incredible portraits include Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill, and Albert Einstein.

In my photo, I attempted to give that low key contrast as much as I could.  The room was full of windows which led to some interesting shadows.

Week 21 (Technical) – At the End of the Day

“At the End of the Day”

This week we were to create an product image for a magazine.  For this week, I shot travel as my product, but instead of using the over-saturated images of beautiful beaches, I chose to appeal to those that just want to escape and show the underlying beauty in nature.  Without color.

Week 16 (Portrait Lighting) – Teddy

 

“Teddy”

One of the ways you can set up portrait lighting is to do a split lighting setup.  Mostly used on masculine subjects, this lighting setup can complement your subject.  You can use natural light as well when trying these techniques.  I used Teddy here with the sun as my light source.  I utilized split lighting to bring out his fur.

Day 7 of B/W Photo Challenge

“The Hideout”

It’s quiet in the house, it’s Saturday afternoon.  Everyone else is asleep so I head out to the shed with a cocktail and contemplate what next to do with the garden.  It’s the perfect spot, away from the spying eyes of the neighbors, with a great view, this hideout is perfect.  So peaceful.

Day 6 of B/W Photo Challenge

The Challenge

“The Birdbath”

The leaves are beginning to fall, the water murky.  The reflection shows it is still light out and the birds are chirping around me.  It’s the perfect gathering spot for our friends as they await in the branches above.  They will come, eat, drink and be merry tonight once I leave.  I just hope they keep it down.
