The ingredients used in this experimental portrait:
plexi glass, paint, water, light, the perfect perspective…and lots of experimenting.
Inspired by the works of Robby Cavanaugh. Meaning also that like his works I didn’t use photoshop and rather tried to capture this vision purely through other physical methods.
Better two perspectives than one
I took this photo of a classmate’s was sculpture during our critique; this is only a little glimpse of the side but you can see why I love it. The layers of textures, shape, light, softness… This photo is a celebration of the beauty of fragility.
Being fragile does not mean the same as being weak
To make up for the rather lackluster shots that I’ve been posting up, I give you a kickass photo.
Well actually some people would find a more fitting adjective for this photo, maybe ‘tranquil’ or ‘beautiful’ or even ‘mystical’. But if you’ve ever shot incense smoke before you probably know how hard it is to capture it just right -so my first adjective is the most accurate.
Playing with fire and smoke has never been more inspiring
I’ve never been under the surgery table, but I’m imaging it might look something like this.
(although this is just more of me experimenting with the new lens, lights, and odd angles…)
More accurate really, is the dentist's office.
Stone pillars and architectures are timeless – a gorgeous subject for my photos any day. Like how the hint of bokeh on the top right contrasts nicely with the rigid stoney-ness of the pillar?
Why can't modern buildings still use stone pillars? Why can't pigs fly?
I got the Nikon 35 mm lens for my birthday -and since then all of my photos have been used with it! I really love it, and although it was hard to tell the difference between this and my standard 18-55 lens, it really does pay off in the end. Not only is it economical ($200 is very economical compared to most lenses) but its so much lighter and easier for travel (really helped in mexico).
The fact that it was fixed focal and not a zoom was a bummer at first, but it’s definitely helped me to learn to maneuver my body more than relying on zoom. I would still love to have a zoom one day, but i’m hanging on to this one for a while.

As you may have guessed I’m still uploading 365-day photos from way back and i’m still really behind. Like, really behind. For example, this vintage looking photo of my birthday cake wasn’t taken in the 70’s, but it also wasn’t take the other week.
Anyway, my birthday was months ago but it’s still cool to post up the photo I took that day, which is my cake (of course) :).
Oreo birthday cake. That's all I have to say.
