I took this photo with my iPhone 4s during Jacksonville’s Crowdfunding Festival- One Spark. I had just taken a behind the scenes tour of MOCA with my gallery practices class and quickly shot this panorama from the 4th floor art studio window, looking down on Hemming Park and the giant foam duck UNF sculpture students created. The One Spark weekend was so much fun and I think it was the start of some great things to come in Jacksonville, FL.
#PhotoJax500 in review: If you haven’t seen them yet, here are the images I’ve submitted so far to the #PhotoJax500 project. Thought I’d share them here so they’re easier to page through. The 1st set, “Mushrooms,” was done with shitaki mushrooms, 8 ounces of black glitter and a holographic foam board, and 2 table top studio lights. The 2nd set, “Christmas Village,” was taken just this morning of select pieces of my uncle’s miniature Christmas village he sets up at his house each year. The 3rd set, “PS #4” was taken one morning at Public School #4 here in Jacksonville. For these I focused very much on the beauty of natural light in this down-trodden environment.
