A winter night without snowflakes. Note the vastly different hue structure of the lighting of this shot in comparison to the 8-piece tree picture posted above. Both shots were taken in the same spot but facing different directions on seperate occasions. This shot shows the clarity provided by reflected light when the snow on the ground acts as the reflector of light versus the snow in the air providing the reflective aspects.
A series of eight seperate shots compiled into one single image in Adobe Photoshop. The intent was to convey the unique atmosphere exclusive to the snowy late-night hours of many Upper Midwest US mainland's villages spent peering out a back window. The hue structure present is an entirely natural occurance resulting from the reflection of incandescent street lighting being scattered among the endless invisible snowflakes even miles away from their light source.
Experiment with "light graffiti"
Should you pursue a degree in any creative field, it's recommended you quit smoking first.
Roomates destroyed their guitar and threw paint on it… I found an ideal shot of the end result.
Same as above shot, different angle.
Photographic observation of one of the many subtle geometric forms that may be lurking right above us at any given time. This shot served a valuable lesson as a technical exercise in working the camera settings just enough to capture both the vibrant highlights of the bulbs as well as the gradient of the shadows that define the housing the bulbs reside in.
Another capturing of form that is all around us at any given time.
Observation of color contrast among the surroundings.
Pushing the limits of the depth of field capabilities using stock Canon camera setup. The objects are actually a series of high voltage plugs taken at a semi-macro level.
Abstract shot focusing on form, with a subtle unintended aspect of irony—Mother Nature paints over man's unnatural street paint with the first of many layers of ice to be layered in the coming months.
Selective cropping of a much larger landscape in an effort to point out the hidden palette of vibrant earthtones that would be lost in a shot that was taken farther out.
