This semester I’ve had the chance to do some studio photography work, and this is my latest shoot. This is my cousin, Niya, she is almost a year old. I had a blast shooting these, and I am very happy with the way they turned out. I look forward to doing similar shoots in the future.
The past few years I’ve had the opportunity to work with the Harrison County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, and I had that opportunity again this year. The group focuses on keeping drugs out of the community, this year focusing on prescription drugs. I created an ad for a local magazine that is published annually, and this is the result.
I am currently taking a studio photography class that focuses on lighting styles and techniques. Here are a few assignments from the class. The first was to focus on how shadows create a mood in an image. The second set were black and white line photography, using black/white cards to reflect the light and create the line around the glasses.
I am holding an ESPN Bracket Challenge, and the winner will receive a free 8×10 print of a custom design that they help me create. The winner will have the option to be as involved in the design as they choose. They will be able to select the player, the background, theme, style, font, anything they’d like. The challenge isn’t only open to UofL fans, so if you are a UK fan that has been wanting one of my designs, this is probably your only opportunity. All you have to do is visit THIS link, put in gocards as the password, and pick away. Good luck to everyone, I will contact the winner when all is said and done about the design. Thanks for playing.
Last night I did my first studio photo shoot, and thought I’d share a few of the pictures. The shoot was for a project in my studio lighting class, and I had to utilize 4 different lighting styles; broad, short, rembrandt, and butterfly. The following are the results, plus a few other shots that I just liked. Thanks for looking, I hope to be posting more pictures in the near future.
If you have followed my work over the years, you probably know that Terrence Williams is one of my all time favorite Cardinals. When he was drafted 11th overall, I was excited to see him make a name for himself in the NBA. As I’m sure you all know, things didn’t go as planned for Williams, as he ended up jumping from team to team and eventually ending up in China. After having a successful year over seas, Williams has been given another chance in the league with the Boston Celtics. He made his Celtics debut last night against the Lakers, and played well in limited minutes. With just a 10 day contract in Boston it isn’t known how long Williams will be there, but I’m going to rock this wallpaper until something changes.
I’ve had the opportunity in the last few weeks to work on a few projects, that I thought I’d share.
The first was for Greenwell Plumbing. It is a shirt they will be wearing at their booth at the 2013 Home and Garden Show. The booth will feature a game similar to cornhole, where the visitors will toss a bean bag into a (hopefully empty) toilet.
The other project I work on was for a friend of mine who recently became an insurance agent with American Family Insurance. We wanted to put together a card that would be both professional, and also stick out in a crowd. I used the color scheme from the American Family logo to give the card some pop, and used the same font to give it some continuity.
I’ve been doing more and more freelance work lately, and I thought I’d share some of my recent work. Not all of these logos were picked, but I’m happy with all of them so I wanted to show them before they disappear into the archives.
One of the keys to success this year for the Chicago Bulls is going to be Taj Gibson. He recently signed a contract extension with Chicago and is expected to have a big year in the windy city. So far this year Gibson has been a solid contributor, averaging 8 points and just over 5 rebounds a game (which is about his career average). Gibson isn’t a guy who is going to put up monster numbers, but if he can put up solid numbers off the bench, Bulls fans will be happy.
