Week 37 Leading Onward


This week I did a lot of photography. I had a few class assignments one of which was to photograph a path leading somewhere in the photograph. I thought on this assignment a bunch trying to think how I wanted to put it together. I decided I wanted to have a long straight path or road leading off into the distance and nothingness. The next challenge was finding a place that would be able to depict that feeling of nothingness. Fortunately I happened to find this section of large four lane road with no cars on it. Supposedly it was built by a developer but then the development was never completed so it just dead-ends. It was perfect for what I wanted so I set up my tripod and photographed it. I tried a few different variations but ended up liking this symmetrical panorama most. I like how all the lines lead into the center distance. 

I also got to play around with a few lenses I borrowed from my college one of which was a macro which was so much nicer to use than the extension tubes I have and let me photograph a bee up real close. So close it was practically touching the front of the lens.

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.
