Spirals of Life

Slinkies-34679-950px-Edit

On slow days in the studio, I often experiment with shooting abstract images. Mostly, this is just goofing around. (Click on each image to see it bigger on your screen.)

We might give these images a self-important and seriously artistic, high-brow title – like “Spirals of Life.” But I’ve come up with a better title. Keep reading!

Can you guess what these objects are? Long time faithful readers will know right away – these are things I’ve worked with before.

Here’s a hintIMG_0616-950px-Edit, an iPhone image of my setup for one of the shots.

Yes, these are Slinkies. I’m fascinated by the shapes you can come up with when playing with these toys that have been around since before I was born.

 

 

 

Did you send these down the stairs as a kid? The original Slinkies were shiny steel and came out in the 1940’s.

Rather than “Spirals of Life,” how about we just call these photographs: “Fun with Slinkies!” Enjoy!

Recording Studio with Christina

I’m continuing with my personal project to photograph one person over ten weeks. If you’ve missed the earlier blogs posts, click on the two most recent ones mentioning “Christina” in the list of Recent Articles just to the right.

In this blog post, please click on each of the images as you look at them. They’ll appear larger and clearer.

Last week, Christina and I shot in the recording studio of the country band that she is a part of.  Some fun props to work with – electric and acoustic guitars, microphones and such.

Stay tuned for more images in the coming weeks. We may put a series of the pictures together in a video slideshow, with Christina singing a song – She has a beautiful voice!

Concert Lighting with Christina

I’m continuing my 10 week shooting project with Christina. If you missed my first post about the photography course I’m taking, please see last’s week’s blog post.

Christina is an accomplished singer in several genres. We decided to create some images in the studio that would imitate club or concert lighting. In the image above, I used three lights – one with a blue gel aimed towards the background, the second a bright light just off the frame to the right to highlight her hair, and the third a beauty dish to the right at about 45 degrees to the camera line.

Here’s one using a red gel. Christina sings with a wonderful country group and I was listening to a playlist of classic country hits she’d made on Spotify while editing these pictures.

I found the vintage-style microphone on Amazon. It’s a replica of “the Elvis mike” – what could be better?!

Stay tuned for more pictures of Christina over the coming weeks.
