Week 19 Building


This week I helped at the new victus farm, sustainable fish plant, hauling cement from the truck to build the water troughs. I was also charged with documenting the progress through photographs. While doing this I made this photograph above which I love because of how both Mike and the cement truck are framed perfectly in the door. However I was using my flash as fill light due to the contrasty midday sun and it didn't fire and I wished that Mike wasn't facing directly away from the camera and mostly hiding the water sprayer. So I quickly made another photograph but unfortunately he had moved just slightly which totally ruined the framing. I still like the one above more even with Mike facing so exactly away from camera. 

I also played the most epic game of Settlers of Catan and photographed the ending board to record its spectacularness. For fellow players there were exactly 2 places left to build settlements and they were only accessible by one person, no development cards left, and both longest road and largest army locked into one person without competition. What a game it was, and I even won purely by chance.

Week 50 Snow

This week I had some fun homework assignments photographed some playing Xbox and exploring in the snow. 








Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers. 






Week 3 Jump High

For this week I had this plan of making a photograph of someone jumping high into the air maybe with a dog next to them or some other sort of creative twist. Laura's little brother was happy to be my model and had lots of fun showing off his cool jumps and flips. It was a very challenging shoot because the overcast day made for a low level of light and jumping on a trampoline is fast action. I did manage to make a few good photographs this one being my favorite because you can see al of James and it almost looks like he is flying instead of jumping. I like how you can see the trampoline but there is a lot of space between him and it. I wish that his head was more centered in the photograph and he wasn't looking out of the frame because as it is the composition doesn't keep your eyes in the image. I did also make some nice portraits when he took rest breaks.
