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.

Week 26 Sheep Sheering

This week lots of things happened one of which was that we sheered the sheep which is not especially hard since ours are so friendly. Lise is the master wool cutting artison. We also went swimming in Lake Superior. Then I drove for two days, it was supposed to take three days, to get to FGC(Friends General Conference). 

Week 21 Porcupine

This week I got to see a porcupine in the wild. I was working on building a new chicken pen when I looked up and saw a porcupine sitting up in a tree eating. I quickly ran into the house and grabbed my camera. The porcupine was unfortunately high up and backlit for photography but I still managed to make some nice shots. It then got upset about me and David watching it and climbed down the tree and headed off into the woods. I also spent some time photographing a whole pile of hummingbirds at a feeder. I saw twelve at one time. I had so much fun that I set up feeders at home to try and get some more, and better, photographs of hummingbirds. 

Week 17 Northern Lights

 I had some fun photo projects this week. Firstly I finally got my first chance to try photographing the northern lights. It was very interesting because there weren't the usual flowing waves that you usually see photos of northern lights but instead the entire sky was lit up with green and you could see clouds moving over that green. That is why the land also looks green in the photograph because it was being lit by the northern lights. It was so amazing and the entier sky north and south was glowing. I also took a walk to a nearby lake and ended up making some nice photographs of the first flowers of the season. It was really fun reenforcing what I already knew about depth of field and being able to see its effect so clearly. It is amazing how it can change a photograph and one is not necessarily better than the other.
