Early Morning Rain and Light

One Sunday morning, I was up early in the Duke Gardens looking for reflection shots for an assignment. While doing that, I also captured some shots of the plants there, still covered in rain from the night before. Enjoy!

Heavy Metal

For our Small Format class, we were assigned to photograph with flash at an indoor industrial location. I found the Randolph Machine Co. in Asheboro. The owner and workers were friendly and helpful and all the industrial machinery was perfect for photographing. I had to get an overall shot of the shop, a close-up shot of a worker’s hands and a mid-range shot of someone in their work area. Here is my submission for that last shot.

36 Strangers

For our small format digital class, we were assigned to photograph 36 strangers and learn some basic facts about them. We had to take very close shots so that the person came close to filling the frame. We also had to use portable flash on 24 of them. During this assignment, I met a lot of new, cool people and heard some interesting life stories! Below are 12 of my favorite portraits. Enjoy!

Available Light Product Shot

For our product lighting class, we were assigned to shoot an item with only available day or window light. I shot a carton of yummy chocolate Silk soymilk!

The Dress Shoot

For my Spring Portfolio, I constructed a paper-mache dress/sculpture which made the model wearing it taller than normal. I envisioned it as a piece in a slightly surreal fashion-style shoot.

These first images are from the party when some very helpful friends and I made the dress while enjoying a sunny Spring afternoon. Thank y’all!

These are three digital shots taken while testing the lights and getting ready during the shoot.

Here are three digital outtakes of the amazing (and patient) model who wore the dress, Ms. Brittany Snider.

Finally, here is the diptych that was used for my portfolio. These were shot on medium format film and scanned here from negatives.

Thanks again to Brittany and also to the most excellent Walker Anderson for modeling and being an amazing assistant on the set!
