The Light Effect

The Light Effect

This week I decided to try something I’ve always found fascinating: light writing. It’s not exactly a new idea, but I’ve never spent a reasonable amount of time testing it out before and so decided to see where I could push it. Most of the first shots I tried were simple shapes: After having success with several of those, I tried incorporating the lights off-camera: I feel as though these last two could have been…

It’s the 70’s All Over Again

It’s the 70’s All Over Again

Whilst visiting my parents this past weekend I was rummaging through old photo albums and stumbled upon these beauties! Lucky for me, my father has a camera for an appendage, so I have literal mountains of photo albums lying around my house. I was impressed with the quality most of the photos retained, despite being over three decades old. So I decided to scan some of them and display them here!        …

My Favorite Photos of 2011

My Favorite Photos of 2011

As the year draws to a close, I’m reflecting on all the great photos from this year and… well, you know, our impending doom. The news told me we’re all going to die the following year so it must be true. Anyway, before we begin the countdown to all the morbid festivities, I thought it might be neat to look back at what I think are the best and most memorable photos of the year….

Whilst I was rummaging through my garage yesterday I came upon this super duper neat Minolta camera and thought to myself, wow! What other useless junk might I have lying around?! Just kidding. Cameras are anything but useless. Except maybe when you don’t have any film handy and all the cameras you own are SLR’s. For you tech-babies, that means that way back in the day cameras required little rolls of film to take photos…

  So I spent the weekend in Austin for my friend’s graduation and took quite a few photos while I was down there. I am so lucky that my friend’s apartment had gorgeous lighting because it was cold and rainy all through the weekend and I had to take most of my shots indoors. I’ll have to go back and get some shots of the capital, too, because they live ridiculously close… as in, this…

A Foggy December Morning

A Foggy December Morning

It is officially December! And that means a change in weather. Hopefully. I woke up to a very cold and foggy morning today and thought I should seize the opportunity for a photo, since we don’t get too many of those in my neck of the woods…anyway, what I ended up with is the photo above. The shot looks decent, but it really makes me wish I had a wide-angle lens! Like I mentioned before,…

I’m in Love with a Lens

I’m in Love with a Lens

So, in case anyone was wondering, all the photos I post here are ones that I’ve taken. Photography and film are huge parts of my life and I like incorporating them into my writing. Lately I’ve been experimenting with different lighting situations and have discovered a lot of great new ways to light my scenes and subjects! Earlier this year I was lucky enough to get my hands on the new Canon 60D, and I’ve…
