For my second assignment at Interlochen summer camp, I was assigned to work on a piece to promote the first animation program. This project was very difficult to get variety in shots to make this interesting. Majority of my content were kids behind computers working quietly. So this is what I came up with. Also I dabbled in after effects for the first time. As always thank you for viewing.

Final Lighting Portfolio teaser

Our final for advance studio lighting is a portfolio of 8 images of light. Since I am wanting to take a more video route, I'm attempting 8 different video portraits of light. This teaser is one of the 8 I'm working on. Im going for a fashion shoot with different ways of light. The video will be displayed in a gallery to get the full effect I am going for. More to come next week.

Onions. Onions. Onions.

In studio lighting, we dipped our toes in food photography. After a wonderful, in-class demo with Jennifer Davick, former Southern Living photographer, I learned that the best light to use for food is good ole' window light. Even with strobes, we mimicked window light. Fun fact about myself, when I'm not shooting photos, I am training to be the next Iron Chef. So for this assignment, I kept it simple. (left) My pantry of onions and garlic. (right) Roasted Onion Trio, marinated with fresh picked rosemary and thyme, topped with freshly grated pecorino romano cheese. As always, thanks for looking. 

Remember KONY 2012?

For the Talisman, I shot Cover The Night, an event sponsored by WKU's Chapter of Invisible Children. The purpose of Cover The Night is to make Joseph Kony famous. The social media movement has recently made national headlines. It was interesting to see how popular the event was a month ago to what the turn out was. On Facebook, over 200 people had confirmed to attend, at the event was less that 15.  Here are some picks for you guys. As always thanks for looking.

Fashion Photographer or something like that..

For Studio Lighting, we get our hands wet with fashion. The challenge, shoot a diptych of fashion and a accessory. What girl doesn't love a pretty dress in flats or heels? As always, thanks for looking and a special thank you to my lovely model, Elizabeth Hisle.

The Silver Mop

For studio lighting, we are to light a person and a object and tell the story of the relationship. Kyle Green and his friends bought the beautiful Silver Mop from a student art show as a joke. The Silver Mop soon made appearances at parties and developed a Facebook page. As the joke continued, Green and The Silver Mop were "in a relationship"and it was Facebook official. The joke has continued for about a year and they plan on keeping it going.
