Week 36 Arboretum


This week I spent some time exploring the local Arboretum. It was fun and photographic although I did realize its limits since I was able to hike the majority of the trails in one session within a couple hours. I did enjoy the hike and especially liked the flower gardens. I really like the photograph above even though there are aspects of it that seem to be objectionable. I really liked the setting with the flower clumps with the green bed of leaves and the small waterfall in the background. I made a nice simple composition without the flower up close in the left of this photograph but for some reason I really like this one and the depth gained from that blurry flower. What do you think, does it work like this?

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.
