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.

Fourth of July Red White and Blues

We were assigned to capture a trio of photos over the Fourth of July break that had an Americana aspect to them. Unfortunately, it rained on Fourth of July- but I still caught a few shots at the Eno River Festival that same weekend and during the rain…

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!

Getting Snooty in the Streets

In Small Format class, we are learning about hand held strobes (flashes) for use when on location or shooting on the fly. We made cardboard modifiers which go over the strobe and control the direction of its light, called snoots. The shot below was done with a snoot on the flash. The background was purposely slightly underexposed to make the subject really pop. Thanks to classmate, Alyssa Paige-Murkin for being my awesome model!

Get Your Goats Here

For Small Format class, we had to locate and photograph a farm. I found  Kilby Family Farms here in Asheboro, NC. They make goat cheese and milk! Goats are weird and obstinate creatures but can be very interesting models. Here are some photographs from my visit there. Thanks to the Kilbys for allowing me to take these shots.
