Cubomania


My "before" Cubomania.


This is my Cubomania. I've always loved abstract art, and this project reminds me a little of the David Hockney project we did last year. The reason I picked flowers for my cubomania piece is because first I'm excited for spring, but the second good reason is that flowers can be something very sensual in art especially when they are taken into an abstract form. Many artists say that you can compare flowers to the human body because of all the different shapes and forms. While making my cubomania I tried mashing up similar shapes and contrasting ones it was really fun.

Food Glorious Food






 Alrighty -- strawberry shortcake is a tradition around here and with frozen strawberries and whip cream in the freezer it was calling my name. I like the fact that there are different textures in the pictures, slick whip cream, gooey strawberries, and fluffy waffles.


 This here is a picnic left over, crumbs good food should disappear fast.


 I like the depth of field in this picture you can see the frosting and detail clearly on the two cupcakes in the front then the two in the back lose detail.


This was our dinner a couple nights ago -- oh my gosh I clipped the highlights it made me so mad, but I like that you can see the steam coming off the food. Yum, yum.


Breakfast, honestly this doesn't look to good to me because I don't like eggs, and I wouldn't want them with chocolate milk.

lightbox

Here are my lightbox photos! I tried a couple different things for these photos -- I know that we were supposed to pick three, but I had fun trying out different lighting and positions. 


In this photo the airplane is actually quite large (to be going in lighbox) so I had to cut off part of it, I set it at this angle in the hopes that the plane would look more like it's flying. 


 I've always loved my little stone dragon, haha . . . . get it? It's a movie reference.


 Here is a rainbow frog, I liked this picture because I was rather proud of myself using the manual focus for artistic purposes.


 Well . . . . really I just liked my little tiger figurine and I liked the shadows from them.


I think this is my favorite :) the light reflects very nicely and you can see all the little shimmers on the turtles shell. I also liked my use of negative space . . . I hope you do too :)

Creepy Photos

Hey all, sorry my photo's aren't up to their usual standards this week. :( I've seem to have caught every single illness that is going around so I've been spending most of my time trying to get better. This meant canceling my photoshoot. Sorry. :(

 I used front lighting for this picture and placed the flowers in front of a desk top computer -- using light from the window. I think the colors in this picture also make it a little eerie. I decided to base my photo's off of the hunger games so this picture was inspired by the nightlock berries.


 This picture of course is inspired by the arena and the love of the forest -- I think the trees make it look eerie while I used natural lighting I also had a natural reflector of snow!


This picture was taken in my house with what I would usually say is "the yucky kitchen tungsten light." For this picture though I was kind of going for abstract and well creepy so the hideous yellow works with all the other bright acid like colors. 


Nothing scary like a black cat eh? If you remember Prim had a cat ;D Taken about midday.


"Going home" When the movie begins we see them on the train the country side blurring by -- we see the capitol and all the buildings, but I can't help but think there's some desolation out there too. Taken at night.
