At the Beach with Christina

Regular readers know that I’ve been working on a continuing personal project with Christina, pictured here, to photograph her over a period of 10 weeks, in a variety of settings.

If you missed some of the earlier blog posts, see the blue links to the right, with Christina’s name in the title.

Last week, we went to a local beach cove and took pictures from about 5pm to 7pm.  With some clouds around and the sunset fast approaching, the light changed every few minutes. So, it was necessary to continually adjust camera settings as well as the strength and angle of the flash. I get spoiled in the studio where I can instinctively set and control my light for hours on end! But this evening was good practice for staying on your toes as conditions changed.

For this shoot, I was ably assisted by my fabulous new 12-year old photo assistant, Ridgely. I used a small flash unit in most of these images and Ridgely held the light for me. But she also held “flags” (you have to look up what a photography flag is!), did some fashion styling and was generally a big help all around. Thank you, Ridgely!

Christina and I are coming to the end of our project – sad to say! I plan to pull together a few of the images from each of our shoots into a video slide show. Stay tuned for details. Christina – you’ve been a joy to work with!

In the Park with Christina

 

 

Having terrific fun in my continuing photography project with Christina. This week we went outside for the first time, to a local park. If you haven’t seen any of the pictures from our earlier shoots, check out the blue links to the right, with the name “Christina” in the title.

We just have 2 or 3 more shoots to do. I’m beginning to think about how to bring together many of the images from our 10 weeks of pictures. It might be a video slide show of the photographs, with Christina singing one of the songs she has written and performed. You can hear her terrific voice at Christina Mae.

Stay tuned – literally and figuratively! Thanks again to Christina for collaborating with me on this creative adventure.

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!
