Numbers

I normally don’t post more than 1 or 2 times a day, but I finally realized I have something for the Discover Challenge: Numbers. So I’m sliding in a contribution before the new theme is announced.

For more underwater scenes, see my previous post ‘Fish.’

Do you often take number images?

Photography 101: Triumph

Congratulations to each and every one of you who made it through Photography 101. I for one, have really enjoyed the challenge, and now know, that when put to the test I can make a photo a day.

For those of you who didn’t participate in Photography 101, thank you for following along!

Photography 101: Double

A couple different takes on yesterday’s theme, Double.

I went with an experimental take on this challenge.

1st, you know that weird effect you get when you zoom in or out while taking a picture (it seems the actual name for this technique is Zoom Burst/ Blur)? In any case, I’d never tried it with miniatures. So I did. Granted this is my first attempt with this, so this photo has little meaning, but it gives me some interesting ideas to use in the future.

2nd, a re-editing of images from my senior project. I took the 2 images from the scene ‘Watch Your Step‘ and superimposed them to see if the story works better this way.

What weird techniques have you tried with your photos lately?

I wanted the feel of standing on the edge of the building, on the roof, ready to let go, but I didn’t want to fully picture a moment with the potential to be so graphic. I wanted a metaphor, not a trigger. So I drew a box – 2.5″ x 2.5″ with a dry erase marker on a piece of printer paper. I chose a figure, hands on her hips, looking outward, black and white to match the scenery. Minimal. I played with angles to find one that captured what I wanted to show. I started high and got more level with the figure. This way we have come out to the roof top with her. We can see what she sees- which in this case, is a blank slate on which you can write your own view, your own story.

 

Photography 101: Treasure

I’ve taken this one a bit literally today.

I just had to though. I re-discovered this treasure chest in my box of miniatures last week and actually posted a picture of it to my instagram. I set it up a bit better for this shot thought, adding glitter and polymer clay pieces of gold.

Photography 101: Landscape

I had every intention to do this one yesterday, but by the time I got home, I wasn’t feeling well at all. So, I granted myself a pass.

Photography 101: Architecture

There’s a new neighborhood being built just down the street from where I live. We drive past daily and see the progress they’ve made. Yesterday, there were 3 construction workers on the very top of one of the houses that was still just wood frame. The sun was behind them and it created such an iconic image. I was driving, and thus didn’t take a picture. But I’ve been disappointed with the missed opportunity. Then I realized, that I can just create the scene on my own in any way I please.

With that, I scaled it down to just one worker, and changed the time of day to sunset. And here you have it, using HO scale miniatures.
