Photo Sequence

If you haven't heard of the YouTube show "The Art of Photography" you should definitely check it out. Ted Forbes does a great show with lots of artistic approaches, techniques and insight into lots of older photographers work.
I have been following his latest photo assignments and was particularly inspired by the Photo Sequences. It is an interesting way to tell a little story with a few images. I have done some longer form photo essays which I love.          If you Go Away     Be My Baby     Eastern State Penn
But I really like these little comic strip style sequences or collages. Have to try this with more subjects.

Multiple Exposures

The possibilities are endless when you start thinking in multiple exposures. Especially when you realize not every exposure needs to be in focus or lined up with the last :)
These are all done in camera.

Earthbound Angels Made of Stone

Some of you may know that I have a passion for shooting cemetery angels. It's been going on for a long time:)
I wanted to do something everlasting with the images I have made other than letting them accumulate on the hard drive.
Presenting the images with poetry is an idea that came to me while making slide shows one day.
After some searching I found Elaine C. George. She is an International award winning poet that I met through the Canadian Authors Association. Her way with words is amazing. If you read Lassie and you will see what I mean. The poetry has an emotional quality to it that I loved. You should also read Violin, Most of her work can be found on Poetry Soup. I gave her a bunch of images and after absorbing them for weeks she began to write.
I am so excited and proud to show you all this collaboration, it has turned out better than both Elaine and I expected !

Its that time of year again, back to the camera club and a whole new set of challenges.
First topic "Lowdown" Images that have been taken from a low viewpoint. I had this idea about an image of the underside of a vehicle with someone standing at the front of it. I thought that might tell a little bit of a story.
My nephew was willing to help me out again so we jumped in the truck and brought his sisters bike along for some alternative shots. As it often turns out, the shot you envisioned in your head does not turn out as well as you think but the other shots you think up on the spot are much better. Probably because those alternate shots are based on the light & composition possibilities you see at the time.
Loving these shots of Brandon on the bike. This first one with him looking down is one of those in between shot, when he's not sure i'm taking a picture. Its very natural. These were taken laying on some cardboard on the road with the camera right on the ground. As low as you can go.
The Truck one is OK to :)
