Week 4 Photographing a Wedding


I assisted Becca Dilley, http://www.beccadilley.com/, at one of the weddings she was photographing. It was the marriage of Michael & Jessica in the Science Museum of Minnesota. It was incredibly fun and I learned a lot about photographing weddings and photography in general. I also learned that this is defiantly the type of photography that I want to specialize in. It was so incredible being a part of such a joyous event as a wedding and I spent so much time with the wedding party that I had gotten to know them by the end of the night. The Photograph above is my favorite out of the 300+ I made. I like how I caught Jessica at the perfect moment when she was touching the ring and looking lovingly up at Mike. This was made right after the ceremony when they were signing the official documents.

There were a lot of great photographs from this so I felt I had to share a few more. We spent a few hours before the wedding outside taking photographs of the bride and groom and the wedding party. It was also a festival day and there was a parade, ice sculptures and lots of people. We then moved to the science museum and got photographs at lots of the cool exhibits. Then the ceremony, social time, diner where they had to kiss every time someone correctly guessed the answer to science trivia questions and finally dancing. The dancing was fun because after the first formal dance things got more relaxed and people started just having fun! All in all it was an amazing experience and I defiantly want to do it again.

Week 26 Sheep Sheering

This week lots of things happened one of which was that we sheered the sheep which is not especially hard since ours are so friendly. Lise is the master wool cutting artison. We also went swimming in Lake Superior. Then I drove for two days, it was supposed to take three days, to get to FGC(Friends General Conference). 

Week 21 Porcupine

This week I got to see a porcupine in the wild. I was working on building a new chicken pen when I looked up and saw a porcupine sitting up in a tree eating. I quickly ran into the house and grabbed my camera. The porcupine was unfortunately high up and backlit for photography but I still managed to make some nice shots. It then got upset about me and David watching it and climbed down the tree and headed off into the woods. I also spent some time photographing a whole pile of hummingbirds at a feeder. I saw twelve at one time. I had so much fun that I set up feeders at home to try and get some more, and better, photographs of hummingbirds. 

Week 17 Northern Lights

 I had some fun photo projects this week. Firstly I finally got my first chance to try photographing the northern lights. It was very interesting because there weren't the usual flowing waves that you usually see photos of northern lights but instead the entire sky was lit up with green and you could see clouds moving over that green. That is why the land also looks green in the photograph because it was being lit by the northern lights. It was so amazing and the entier sky north and south was glowing. I also took a walk to a nearby lake and ended up making some nice photographs of the first flowers of the season. It was really fun reenforcing what I already knew about depth of field and being able to see its effect so clearly. It is amazing how it can change a photograph and one is not necessarily better than the other.
