Studio 2 offers new challenges. The first assignment was to photograph a “grab bag” item. All the items were mundane, every day objects. We were to photograph it in a way that made the object look like art, like a featured image in a magazine. So, can you guess which object I had to photograph? And what lighting style I chose?
A few more images from Yarmouth last week. These include some work I’m doing with Elements. Think Water/Earth. We had one really good sunset while we were there, among the days of rain and snow and clouds.
I’ve started a new series: Portals. I’ve enjoyed capturing doors while traveling in Europe. I focus on the old ones. I also have a number of National Park landscape images, especially ones that look like alien landscapes. i decided to try combining the two using Photoshop, blending modes and selective masking. These are the first results.
I’ve been noticing tree branch patterns lately. When there are no leaves, the form of the branchs and shape of the tree are more obvious. I see a possible idea for a photography project taking root in my mind! Here is a recent image I captured at sunset. The beautiful, rich colors are a backdrop for tree branches. Maybe the first in a new series? Best start before the leaves come out, or I’ll have to wait until next winter.
Last week, the temperature dropped very fast to 2 degrees. The river in the backyard was literally flowing while it froze. This created amazing texture on the surface, which when captured at sunset gave a gorgeous blue glow to the textures. Each image is unique and different. Enjoy!
There are many ways to mark the seasons of the year. Is there snow? Do I see green? Is anything blooming? Do I need to rake leaves? But for a photographer, it’s all about color and light. Here are a few impressionist images that mark the seasons.
The fall color is just beginning here, but there is enough to begin capturing some abstract frames of the leaves. I went to Cantigny yesterday and had fun looking for the color, sometimes hidden by the green, green trees. Here are a couple of abstracts:
