excuse me sir, you’re a panda!

with one comment

This is one of the shots I took while in NYC the last time I was there. I was walking to the International Center of Photography and saw this Panda waiting to cross the street.  He wasn’t promoting or trying to sell anything.  Just having a good time being a panda I guess.  While at ICP, I was able to look at some of Steichen’s work.  Absolutely incredible!  I hope to spend a lot of time at ICP when I am in the city.

…butt

with 5 comments

I was in the studio last week shooting some things for Macro and not having to much fun.  I started with some popcorn and that wasn’t exciting and then moved on to some zippers and again, not exciting.  I sat there trying to think of something that was very common but not often looked at.  Somehow my mind came to cigarette butts and I thought could have been cool.  These were shot at 1:1 or 1:2.  I would recommend checking out Irving Penn’s collection of butts as well.  Of course, he is a stud and did something similar to this some decades ago, but its fun to take an idea and mold it to your own.  Let me know what you think.

1st Self Portrait

with 5 comments

For some reason, I have been thinking about doing some self portraits.  For my portrait class we had to have 5 images for our portfolio and it was the night before it was due and I only had 4.  I racked my brain and realized that I would just have to take a hit and not have a fifth image.  That was until my girlfriend pushed me into doing something, just anything to turn in.  Since at that point it was 2:00 in the morning of the due date, I couldn’t ask anyone to help.  I started to come up with some ideas and some locations that I could shoot and this was what I came up with.

I had a lot fun shooting this image.  I have a few more ideas for some self portraits, so hopefully there will be more to come.  Let me know what you think of it.

Recreation…

For my Portrait class we had to attempt to recreate an image by a master photographer.  I chose Irving Penn.  He was/still is absolutely brilliant when shooting.  When he was younger he shot mostly models and fashion ads and now in his older age of 91 he is doing more still life.  The image I tried to recreate is of Pablo Picasso.  I know my friend doesn’t have as many wrinkles but I tried.

I shot this photo in my 2nd semester of school.  I was on a quest to find complementary, triadic, supplementary colors.  I was driving around looking for these colors and I found this average building with the cool pipe.  I don’t know what it is about this photo but I kind of like it.  Simple and maybe its below average but I needed to blog for John.building

retouch

with 6 comments

We recently had an assignment where we had to retouch an image and turn it in.  It was kind of easy so I decided to try one that was a bit tougher and this is what I came up with…
