Week 42 Scattergood Day


This week I was hired by Scattergood Friends School to photograph Scattergood Day(homecoming). I was very excited to do it partly because it would make it worth the long trip down there to visit with old friends. I made a lot of photographs and had a hard time limiting it down to the ones here. The one above is my favorite because I like the dramatic viewpoint with the farm tour walking down the hill backdropped by huge clouds. I also had some fun with the next one down where I used three different photographs to show the path of the disk. 

On my way down to Iowa I stopped at my grandparents and was enlisted to photograph my aunts alpacas. I made a few different compositions but I like this one best because you can see the rolling pasture in the background.

There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green.

I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
