May 18, 2013. Gold Flares

Early summer greens are so rich and bright, especially after the long winter gray. I can't believe we are almost halfway through the year already.

May 16, 2013. Summer

I haven't been too proud of any of the work I've turned to my photography classes this semester, and now that I got the chance to do something individually with a little more freedom, I wanted to show what I could do, but had little time (only had the camera available the day after I got the assignment) so we set up a small, spontaneous shoot and headed out the next afternoon. For the suddenness and little preparation, I was actually quite happy with the results. I wasn't quite sure what I would do so I just picked a nature theme and figured I'd wing it at golden hour. Yvonne pulled off a really neat makeup look and we were good to go!

Here's a guy you don't need to ask to smile because he always does.

May 7, 2013. Do What You Love

When people do things that they love, we find they can be divided into two categories. Those who do it just because they love it, and those who do it to get good. Sunny loves dancing, but he's not just out there to do it, he's out there to get good and climb up the ladder.
Dance is something very foreign to me, I can't do it, I never do it. I'm as awkward as they come on the dance floor so seeing Sunny do his thing is just fascinating, viewing how much movement humans are capable of. Working with him was easy as pie because he can be himself and enjoy it, and that shows on camera, in his dance, and in his way of being. It was a fun shoot.

May 4, 2013. Punk as Funk

Hellooooo, anybody still here?
Yes it has been a while. School has been busy and the weight of 9 classes is starting to hit, but I have a few photos to post for the time being.
Meet Emily. She is a rare mix of character and attitude stored in a cool and calm container, and exactly who I was looking for. She jumped right on board with the idea and we were shooting less than 2 weeks later, though the concept had been slowly brewing in my head for a while. With the help of Yvonne's makeup skills we got her fixed up with a punk look and headed over to this rocking tunnel (which took us half an hour because I forgot the way...)
All thanks due to the talent and wait for a little more to come!
