a few shots from the weekend.

Which of course, have nothing to do with any of the work I intended to get done this weekend. But that just seems to be how things are going lately.

what I’ve been up to lately…

New school, new projects, and no sleep.

here’s some stuff I’ve been working on.

Illustrating the alphabet. Some of the letters got out of order, I’m not sure how to fix that, but you’ll get the idea.

Alice in Wonderland…

This is what you get if you combine random crap from around my place, and a LensBaby.

Thought I’d dust off the LB again. Haven’t picked it up in a while.

Spring break is this week, so hopefully I’ll be catching up on a few things around here…

I can’t believe there’s only 3 weeks left until graduation. I still haven’t heard anything from most of the schools I applied to. I don’t know what that means, but it’s making me rather nervous.

more updates…

Here’s what I’ve been working on so far. Two more projects to finish… and I’m running out of time!

Many, many thanks to everyone who’s been helping, supporting, inspiring, and donating materials for all these projects. You know who you are, and I couldn’t have gotten this far without all of you! Love you all!

Now its time for me to get back to work.

 

 

Blart…

Blurry + Art = Blart.

some kind of ride

Many thanks to Alanna, Alicia,  Pam, and Marcia for helping with my photo series project…

random updates…

Just a few things I’m currently working on…self prtrait, ear.

(Yet another) Self portrait. This is in just the beginning stages. Yes, its a wonky cell phone picture again… My camera is busy with another project at the moment. (See below.) I thought I was going to try this in pastels, but somehow I just kept continuing on in pencil… We’ll see what happens, maybe I’ll try both.

This is going to be a series of water drop/splash photos… the set up was pretty tricky for this one. I ended up with a baking pan since none of my bowls were wide or deep enough for the lenses I have and I couldn’t get quite the right distance away. Seems the combo of this bread pan and my 55-200mm lens and a couple of clamp lights are doing the trick… but its tough to get that lens to move fast enough to catch the action.

Some more classwork. Not sure if I’m hitting the mark with these, but still need some more photos so maybe the next batch will produce something a little better…

I don’t think this is some of my strongest work to date, but they are kind of interesting…

Red, FTW!

So I’m taking Intro to Digital Photography this semester! (Yay!) We got our first project this week, Color Theory. The basic idea is to choose a color, and shoot images using that color as a theme, in analogous, monochromatic, and complimentary color schemes. I chose red. so far, I already have a few that I’m kinda liking, but I need to have about 30 or so photos for the class, so since  I’m going on a trip into Manhattan this weekend with a friend, I’m hoping take a few more photos there…

Here’s one of my favorites so far. Its kinda cheeky, and that’s why I like it. 🙂

umbrella and rainboots

Yep.. those are my knees.

More to come! 🙂
