Week 28 Round River Farm


This week was farm focused, fortunately we had a good sized team to do all the harvesting. It was the first week of pea picking and it took hours to pick them all. Then we still had to harvest all the other vegetables. I really didn't know which photograph to pick as my favorite for this week but I do like the group photograph above and am happy with the quality I was able to attain with harsh late morning light, a bad angle(so the gardens would be in the background), and no shade. I ended up using a fill flash at close range to lift the shadows then brought them up even more in post processing. This week we also set off some small fireworks courtesy of Laura and found some baby grouse.

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.
