Working the Subject... 100 Creative Ways

Three items.
Stylin' Fruit Basket

I was very happy with the items that I chose to photograph.
Attempting 100 Creative shots from something can be quite difficult, but I guess I lucked out!

The bike is a very interesting base item that allows a lot of natural framing, colour, and texture. It works well with incorporating other items, and hanging them off the frame.

To be honest, It was good to work with the skateboard, but I just couldn't stay away from the bike.

The Fruit basket was a really good abstract item, and worked really well with the flash.
Since the basket is constructed completely from chrome metal bars, it made for great reflection and lines.

Overall, it was a lot of fun for me, and I am glad the rain stayed away for those 2 hours.
The options were endless for me, and I had a hard time stopping when I was well over 100 shots.


DT 2.1 - Lines

I really enjoy lines, so this was a fun one for me.
Lines are everywhere.
But sometimes it's up to you to find them.
It was good to be shooting at Skate 4 Cancer because it was something that I really wanted to take part in and photograph, but it doubled as doing a homework assignment as well.
Lines were everywhere, and it was fun to look for them.
Some lines are obvious, but others you might have to look for.
I hope you have fun looking at them.



Hank is not my name.
I will just clarify that.

Genre is difficult to narrow down.
Here are three:
Live Music/Band

In the next Nine and a half months, I want to learn as much as I can.
This includes:
The business of Photography
Web design/displaying images professionally
Monitor calibration/display brightness for optimum printing
To control the camera as a part of me in pressure situations
Darkroom developing/Dodging & Burning
Large Format/Small Format

I have a story to tell you.
I'll have to think about it though...
I was at a hardcore show.
Some friends and I were fooling around with my camera and off-camera flash.
I had the idea of sticking the flash in my mouth, while photographing my face.
I had no idea that the flash would light up the whole face red, and leaving it look like a skeleton.
It was sweet.
