Week 38 Live Pond


I have so many amazing photographs I like from this week. Most of them are from various class assignments that I had to do but caused me to find a photograph that I loved to make. This one above is such a photograph. I was supposed to make a photograph of the blue sky reflecting off non glaring water. Sincere there was no blue sky I instead decided to photograph the school of goldfish in the pond. Now I have photographed fish in ponds many times before and was never very happy with the results because the somewhat dirty water would always make the photographs murky. This time though I had the brilliant idea of including one bubble from the cascases leading into the pond. For me this single bubble makes the photograph seem crisp and sharp but still lets the main attention be on the goldfish.

I made another photograph I like this time on the theme of photographing a white subject on a white background. I was surprised at how hard it was to find a white subject I wanted to photograph. Finally I found this white rose and decided it would be perfect for my assignment. I got in close with my borrowed macro lens and loved the subtle shadows created by filling the frame with the all white rose. I tried a mixture of compositions but like the focus point I chose with this photograph and the wavy flowing light shadows that weave through the photograph.

I also made some photographs on a class out-trip to Inspiration Peak and at Central Lakes College football game.

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.
