Though I mostly like to play with digital manipulation, it can be a good idea to experiment with other forms of photography as well as have a focus. I often take random (or not so random) pictures with whichever camera I have available, usually of food (the lastest meal or desert) or of flowers, a cool sky, or a neat scene while I’m taking a trip. Though these are often taken on-the-spot, the will most likely turn into a texture or become an object of a digital manipulation. These are a few pictures I recently took that I only did Lightroom edits to. The idea is to practice looking for the elements of a good photograph- which translates into the elements of a good digitally manipulated photograph. Some of the pictures in this set (more on Flickr) are from the Legends Mall in Kansas City, Kansas.

A continuation of my creative photography classwork, this is the first set done directly for the “Another Day” series project that I am currently working on.
These are pictures I took of my fiance’s sister for her Prom. Some photos I edited in Photoshop CS4, but I mostly used Lightroom 2.0. I used a Lumedyne coupled with a Alienbee umbrella for a flash.

These are pictures of my fiance that I took for my editorial class. The idea is fashion, particularly of more formal wear. No flashes, but an occasional reflector was used. Retouching was done in Photoshop.

During Spring Break, my boyfriend and I traveled down to the Dallas, Texas area to visit my cousin and take her family pictures. While there, we went to downtown Dallas, as well as few other places, to take pictures. These are some of the results, edited for my Editorial class assignment. None of these have Photoshop retouching; all post processing was done in Lightroom 2.0. The restaurant shown is Sambucca.
