I happened to witness a hot air balloon festival in Lewiston, Maine. I took the initiative to get in on the action and I am happy with some of the images.
Sorry to be late with my Sunday Stills post, I have been preparing myself for my new job at Bates College as an Admission Counselor.
Thanks for visiting!
Finally back in Texas which means I may be posting regularly. I am somewhat restricted in the confines of my house, but when I head into San Antonio I will make sure to do my best to complete the challenges to the best of my ability if need be. For now, sorry for my lack of posting and hopefully I can gain a rhythm again.
Thanks for stopping by. Cheers,
PS. I think this counts for rule of thirds…I couldn’t pull out my ruler to measure.
Sorry for my absence;I have been trying to work out a huge photo project for my Building a studio course and trying to figure my summer plans. I have been drained by trying to get permission to travel to Cuba, which I don’t think will happen in the present time.
For my Building a Studio Practice Course I am taking on a topic that responds to an audience larger than that of the classroom and it has taken lot of planning thinking and energy on my part. I am thinking big; thinking of the issues that involve man people like and unlike me.
I am trying to protest what is going on in Arizona through a cohesive body of work. What makes it difficult is my location; I am too far from home, too far from the problem. So everything becomes more symbolic and everything means something. I also have to represent the issue correctly and not preach a solution or push the issue too much, I also can’t make things too ambiguous. I am trying to find that balance between everything.
I have also neglected my camera, Vasia, over the past couple of months on the grounds that I haven’t felt inspired. I had lost something that I am trying to get back. I have not been inspired by what around me. But this past weekend, i gained a little of what I lost when I traveled around the Maine Coast. I needed that fresh air. It was one of the best weekends I have had here at Bates, yet I feel like I am still missing something.
But these were my weekend shots:
I recommend taking a look at an earlier photo-project done this semester which included hands for this post.
I semi worked with this subject matter for my final project in Photography which will/was due this Thursday the 8th of April. It was the human figure in general, but you can’t miss working with hands.
I took photos in the Imaging Center at Bates College (I have to give them credit for that). I have these images you can enjoy ( I hope).
Here are my Sunday stills even if somewhat late.
I used photoshop to make the images interesting. Here is my take:
