Week 34 Cementing a New Hoophouse


This week I got enlisted to help bucket cement from the cement truck to all the footing holes for the new hoophouse at Wolf Ridge ELC(Environmental Learning Center). The truck was so late we were starting to wonder if it was coming at all. But it finally did arrive and we all hustled to work filling wheelbarrows then scooping it out of the wheelbarrows with buckets and in teams pouring/scooping with hands the cement into the fairly narrow holes. They were however deep so it took a lot of cement. Fortunately we had lots of hands so the work went fast. I like the photograph above because of the composition. How the truck frames the right side and the cement shoot creates a nice diagonal line that draws you through the image to the wheelbarrow being filled. I was also utilized to make a group photograph while we were waiting for the truck to arrive. As has often been to case recently I was working at the worst time of day with no shade where I needed it. I used my flash to fill the shadows and it worked out pretty nice. Then on the way home I saw this hawk sitting on my driveway. It flew away before I could photograph it well but I am glade I was fast enough to get this shot.

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.
