Week 29 (Twilight) – At Twilight

“At Twilight”

Capturing light is at the heart of photography.  The light changes with each passing minute, each passing hour.  From harsh light to golden light to blue light, each time of day is different.  And the light you see will be what your working with.

At twilight, the light changes again.  It brings out some colors while hiding others.  Its all in what you want to see.

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.
