Did I also mention I really like making photographs that are hard to tell what the subject is? I think they’re my favorite way to shoot artistic photographs. Edward Weston is really well known for his photographs of vegetables, or most notably his pepper photograph which looks nothing like a pepper.
Step one: If you’re a man of the hunting gathering type, this should be self explanatory. If not, follow the photograph steps below.
Step two: Show her a bit of love. While you can’t see the love inside the box pictured below, you know you can feel it.
Step three: Wait for the right time pop the question and make her yours.
Step four: Get married and celebrate that love! (hint: I like photographing weddings)
Ok, so maybe it’s not that easy. Trust me. I know. But this sequence of photos showing off a different “ring shot” is a small example of the way I like to shoot weddings. Fun and creative. And remember I can’t do it without you. So get married.
For the next five days there will be one industrial black and white photograph each day. I’m a big fan of geometric elements, as well as a big fan of old run down industrial looking things. Starting today off with this one. all were shot in one room with in one hour. The following five days are the five best.
I was walking along and saw this tree covered in spectacular lights so I told Kristin to hop in there. I love this shot. I might add that it was like 0 degrees out with the wind chill when we went to see the lights at Longwood Gardens. We had such a fantastic time that we decided to become members! Yeeeeehaw! Still looking forward to summer. I hand held this shot. Can I just say how much I love the Canon 5D mk2? Well… I love it.
I just picked up some new gear and like any guy I had to play with it, test it out and see how I could use it. And of course it was late. Why would it be during the day? I work during the day. So late at night while I’m bored and geeked out with new stuff I had the brilliant idea to shoot some pictures on the steps. I about nearly killed myself, I fell down the steps and the self timer went off just in time to capture me in all my gangly glory about to hit bottom. No one was hurt, I didn’t break the camera or shoot my eye out. Thank God. The best part about all of this was that I set it up to look like I fell down the stairs. It was great fun! If you’re still confused, me falling down the steps is a hoax. So Mom, I’m OK.
Diggin’ through the archives I found these little gems from the summer. My friend Andrew and I did some wonderin’ in the woods. Maybe I can say this was doing a bit of compositional testing for weddings? Inspiration? I’m not sure. I just enjoy shooting for fun. If you’re with me and I see something I like, I’ll most likely ask you to be in the shot. I miss shorts and warm weather. Come on summer!
Home Sweet Home Baby! This photo isn’t the front of my house, but it is in my neighborhood and I love it. It’s crazy here. There is such a mix of people here. And those people’s houses reflect who they are. Fishtown is mutli-generational where people’s entire families live here, it’s hipster, artsy, dirty, old, new, trendy, scary and just perfect. Walk around, come see for yourself.
