Week 39 Fall


This week I went on a school out-trip where we all photographed the fall colors in a natural preserve. I made a lot of photographs I like and really enjoyed using the scattering of ponds in my photographs. I also was really excited when I found this tree that was dripping sap. It was in an area that had burned recently and from the burned areas of the tree loads of sap was suspended beautifully. 

Also this week there was student success day at Central Lakes College. It involves many workshops and events all in a day free from regulare classes. The star show this year was a hypnosis. It was exceedingly fun watching and photographing the volunteers as they "watched" scary or funny movies, tried to separate their hands, touched their noses, forget their name and the number 4, and thought they were 5 years old to name a few things. It was a blast for the audience and for the volunteers they said it felt like they had taken a long nap and they didn't remember much. WOW.

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.
