Yesterday my mom and I went to a Thai restaurant called The Magic Noodle Bowl. Knowing how nice they present thier food, I brought my camera with my new 50 mm, 1.8 lens. I used window lighting and available light. These are a few of the shots I got. We ordered steamed dumplings, pad thai, and lo mein with chicken. They also served soup.

These are some of the family pictures I took for my cousin during Spring Break. I thought I’d post a few of them for her on Flickr to see while I’m still in the process of editing them.

These are theatre headshots I took for a student of theatre. These were taken in the school’s studio with profoto lights and a beauty dish, as well as a softbox for a floor light, and a gridspot for the hairlight. It was a roughly one and a half hour photo session, after which I let her see proofs via the webpage-maker in Adobe Lightroom. She chose the ones she wanted me to edit, and I retouched those as well as making them black and white and in the 8.5×11, 8×10, and orginal size formats.
This is also the photoshoot that my Canon Rebel XS decided to show me Error 99. Luckily I was able to run downstairs to checkout a Canon 30D from the photo department. Most shots were with the Rebel, but a few of them were with the 30D.

For our third assignment in Creative Photography, I decided to keep with digital editing, only this time go with heavy manipulation. Anthropomorphic animals have always seemed neat to me, so I decided to try crossing pictures of people with pictures of animals (Most of the animal pictures were pictures I took at various zoos last year, with the exception of the seagull wings and squirrel). I also played a lot with the Highpass and Shadow/Highlights filter, along with texture and blending mode filters.

These are the Front of House and Production Photos that I did for University of Central Missouri’s theatre department and for my Editorial class. The play was Lost in Yonkers.

In the Creative Photography class we had a class period to shoot panoramas – at which point I decided to use panoramas for my next assignment- with a twist: They would be digitally manipulated. I combined multiple photos in some cases, did a bunch of retouching with others, and played with filters and highpass and digital painting in yet others. It was a fun assignment, and these are the results:

We shot basketball practice at the Multipurpose building the other day during class, and these are some of the pictures I came up with. There were four different lenses I shot with, no flash. I think I prefer subjects that move relatively little unless I’m playing with slow shutter speed. No post-processing editing was done, this is what the camera came up with.
