In honor of the first day of Spring Break and also in hopes of having an efficient and rejuvenating week ahead, I have a new mini series. I want to start the week off well and I really want to have a successful photoshoot this week. So the photos I’ll be sharing with you today are just a little experiment and play with my ongoing interest of creating forms with lights and shadows.

Now, I wasn’t trying to go for the zebra look, but I can see how it went that direction a little bit. Anyhoo, Happy March, Happy Spring Break, Happy Friday, and I hope to have much more photographic week coming up! So keep your eyes peeled for some more, andbetter, photos this coming break.

ps: 365GB has 99 wordpress subscribers! 1 more till I hit 100! C’mon guys, lets see how many we can get, i’ll throw a great celebration-photographic-post in return!

Stop Motion Film

Cinema-inspired-photography project. 600+ photos condensed into a small 1 minute film. For some reason after I uploaded it it’s much more choppy….ah well, this is the best and only way I can present it to you.

I hope this can be one of many more videos to come!

The Difference of Cinema

I have something special for you today; finally a quality post. Some real photography, and not just close ups of berries or anything like that..! The 12 images below are just 12 of 600+ other “film stills” of a one-minute stop motion animation I made. Until I find a way to convert my swf flash file into something the internet accepts, i’ll just share these photos with you.

The video, although meant to be more of an animation project was, not surprisingly, turned into a photography project. These images are inspired by a previous series of photos I did over a year ago (see here and here). As you can see, i’ve been thoroughly exploring the element of glass and reflection in my photos for some time now.

The concept behind the video is very broad but deals with the idea of a person’s perception of reality and how it’s completely warped and distorted by our own perceptions. We all see our world through our own lens, and sometimes it might be clean and clear, and sometimes it completely covered over.

I hope you can experience a similar meaning when looking through these few photos. Keep on the watch out for more posts; I hope to start updating this blog regularly soon! :)

It’s all about what you’re willing to see. Our perception is our reality.

The GLAMOUR India Series

Since I’m just posting older work right now, I’ll take advantage of this time to show you my first serious photography work. This was back in April, and it was my first series: GLAMOUR India.

I’d say this was the beginning of a more serious interest in portraiture and in photographic work in general. Since then, I’ve done one other series work (i’ll post up in a few days) but no other serious work besides my 365 project. Especially no serious portraiture, which is something I’d really enjoy getting back into again.

This was probably one of the funnest shoots I’ve done, too. The costumes, lights, colors, people – how could you not have fun with such a Glamorous photo shoot like this one?

Also, this was done before I had my DSLR camera. It was all with my trusty ol ‘point and shoot’ powershot camera ;).
