When a girl is bored!

I was working on shadows, and light, and using the white background to my advantage.

Picking up things around the house and making for a scene is a good stretch of imagination.

I do like the glitter.  I don’t know why – it does capture great on “film”. 

IMG_9193IMG_9182IMG_9185IMG_9188IMG_9189IMG_9190IMG_9191

The background is some cooking implement I found at the bottom of the cabinets.  And my lego heroes!  The rainbow is popsicle sticks that I glued to a backboard.

I wanted to run a test on what the dominos look like in the light and how shadowy they get, and how well they rebound light.

The coils? Cat toys.  My mini buckets and a bag of marbles I bought at the dollar store.

My popsicle stick background.  My keys.  Smile

A ring my wife bought me ages ago.  I wanted to see if I could capture the green reflection on the gold.

I’ve some crystals hiding around and the sun was hitting it just right to capture the rainbows on the white background. 

T-t-thats all folks!

Quarantine Photo Shoot #3–04-05-2020

Look at this! Glitter!  My wife came to to me having glitter on my face……this is the crazy stuff going on ppl!

IMG_8986IMG_8988IMG_8992IMG_8993IMG_9003IMG_9006IMG_8995IMG_9000IMG_9001

I had some left over glitter, and a mini bucket – voila!  Nothing goes to waste – thankfully, my kittens haven’t gotten into it – yet!

IMG_9010IMG_9017IMG_9019IMG_9021IMG_9054IMG_9023IMG_9024IMG_9025IMG_9027IMG_9031IMG_9055IMG_9035IMG_9036IMG_9037IMG_9038IMG_9039IMG_9041IMG_9048IMG_9049IMG_9050IMG_9051

I’m working on light and shadows – and light sources – I used a stationary light to cast shadows from different angles.  Something we had in the cellar.  Then in post, using lightroom, I’m working on different processing.  Preserving the colors and not washing them out, and not darkening the shadows to much either.

I bought 3 small buckets for a buck, and a bag of letters!  I didn’t know what I was going to do with the letters at the time, but then, voila!  Part of these photoshoots are about pushing imagination.  And – you know, glitter!

IMG_9082IMG_9083IMG_9084IMG_9086IMG_9088IMG_9103IMG_9089IMG_9090IMG_9096IMG_9097IMG_9100IMG_9101IMG_9102

The teapot is something that I found up in a cabinet – it’s Jules’.  I strung my keys on a bracelet that we bought somewhere for a few bucks.  The background is some sort of cooking things.  Yeah, not kidding!  Of course, I have my keys which always make an appearance.

Love will conquer all – That’s all for this installment! 

Quarantine Photo Shoot 2–3.31.2020

Still locked up (not really, but you all know what I mean!) and today I banged out a few photos in about 20-30 mins.  This is keeping me on my toes, so I’ll keep doing them!

IMG_8934IMG_8935IMG_8936IMG_8937

A little history about that paperweight.  My bestest friend in grad school, Jason – left in 1982/83 – and the next time he visited (we were 12ish?) Jason tossed this box at me, and almost took my head off (Yes he loves me!) and inside was this – I’ve had it ever since and I always keep it where I can see it.  And today, it came out to play Smile

That is not a normal sized slinky!  It’s a mini 🙂 – something I must have picked up somewhere.  I also bought some cheap white boards – Again, working on a lot of different post processing methods.

The sand is from the White Sands in New Mexico.  I played around with some texture and backing – and moving around a light source. 

IMG_8984IMG_8975IMG_8975-2IMG_8977IMG_8978IMG_8979IMG_8980IMG_8980-2

I found a bunch of free plug ins/presets – and have been playing around w/them and I have to admit – some of them are great!  This concludes my latest fast photo shoot!

3-10-2018

I had been feeling super uninspired lately – then on a day Jules was working – I had a little bit of good light and decided to take the bull by the horns and snaps a few pics of this glorious camera a friend of mine gave me.
