Glass snail

For our ending compilation of photos, we were required to have a glass photograph, so this is what I ended up with. This is a candle holder, open side down, covering a snail shell on black plexi-glass. I liked how the majority of the frame is actually the reflection of the glass piece. I used alien bees in studio, with diffusion panels surrounding the glass, and about 67.3 Gobos or other modifiers all through-out.

Hydrogen-Oxygen-Hydrogen

This was our "Water" assignment, where we had to photograph our perception of water. The goal was for the viewer to known right away what the photograph was of, and for the subject to be clear. I used 2 vivitar 285's on flash stands, each slaved(one radio, and one prism). I hung a bag of water over a bowl of water and poked a hole in the bag for the drip. The blue is coming from a blue set of lids under the bowl, and the background is a pillowcase.

Ehhhgggxactly

This photograph was shot for our "Incredible, Edible, Egg" Assignment, in which we had to advertise an/or egg/eggs to show its importance and popularity. I chose to model my shot after memories I have pertaining to eggs, and their involvement with spoons in many old childhood games I played. I shot this assignment in the studio over a wooden table, w/ articulating arms holding the spoons up. The eggs were then hard-boiled and cracked on one side so that they would stand up on the spoons.

This is a quicktime movie we had to piece together for our first year digital class. It includes some works from my first year and before. All of the photographs were shot on film and then placed on the computer.

"chocolate"

This photograph was shot for the "Chocolate" assignment, in which we had to come up with a scene that could be used as a cover for a story on how chocolate can be a healthy nutritional choice. I used speedotron strobes as the light source. The cup of chocolate syrup was held up by an articulating arm, and the rest was set up on a pedestal.
