Week 20 Wedding

This week I photographed Deonne and Fred's wedding. It was a nice small informal wedding and was loads of fun. Unfortunately the ceremony was right around midday and the sun was shinning brightly from high in the sky. I managed to get by with heavy use of my flash and fill light. The ceremony was short and sweet and then I made some group photographs and everyone relaxed into socializing for the afternoon. I really like the group photograph I made above because I managed to get a good balance between my flash and and sunny background and the ugly hazy white sky was mostly removed from the photograph. There were some young children and they made for some great moments like the one below of the little girl looking up at Deonne through the flowers. It was also really neat because a pair of huge white Trumpeter Swans visited the nearby pond and I was able to get fairly close and photograph them. They are so HUGE standing on land they were almost as tall as me.

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.
