Week 33 Baby Robins


This week I photographed a pair of baby Robins in a nest at Split Rock Lighthouse. They had been in there making noise and distracting our tour groups for weeks. The mom would hop around with food waiting impatiently for us to move farther away so she could feed her babies. I was fortunate to have photographed them when I did because they were very close to fledging and the next day they one by one flew from the nest and disappeared. It was very difficult to get a good view of them because they were high over head and mostly hidden by leaves and branches. I managed to find one decent vantage points but there was this annoying stick that you can see cutting directly across the babies in the above photograph. I also for some reason link the photograph at the bottom because they are both looking away from the camera and apear to be peering together off after mommy. Lots of fun and they were so much cuter when they weren't distracting my tour group.

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.
