Abstract Fireworks

The fireworks show that I went to this year was a slight disappointment. Aside from everyone just being rude by pushing and shoving when the fireworks started, half of the show was blocked by trees.  I was able to get a few abstract shots playing with long exposures and my camera movements.

Person in Water

Here are the rest of the images from my shoot with my cousin Erin. I am finding some aspects of shooting a person in water frustrating. Space is the major downfall my bathroom and tub are small to get the desired effect. however, I am quite pleased with how this set of images have come out. Now I just need a larger body of water and a few volunteers. Perhaps I will attempt this in a new environment like in a pool or at the beach, Ideas for me to think about ?

Transparencies

I was flipping through my film binders and I realized that I have a ton of transparencies which are positive film placed in plastic slides. This set of images are a few of the images are some of my favorites.

 

 

oxidize

Oxidation is something that occurs all around us. For most people this is a bad thing, an annoyance that has ruined their car, tools, bike, etc. For me though it is amazing, I love the changing of colors, how an object can go from the perfect specimen to an unrecognizable object when photographed close-up to show the layers of texture and color changes. I have always had an obsession with broken, run down places and objects…. as if you couldn’t tell  ?    Hope you enjoy these images.

Shelter Island, NY

While I was still in New York I took a trip to Shelter Island. From the ferry you can see this broken down pier. I was on the quest to find it, and I was not disappointed what so ever.  There was not much left to it except for the outer walls. I found a pillar and I just loved the texture of it.
