the blue (magenta?) fugue

Another Advanced Techniques assignment. This time it was the gelled flash. I'm not a big fan of flash photography and I definitely am not good at it - the picture bellow is an example - but I have to work my butt hard and learn how to use that tool. It might be useful sometimes.
So The Blue Fugue, downtown Columbia. A band from Nashville, Tennessee. Their music sounded pretty good.
Let there be ROCK!!!

snapping in the rain

Rainy days in CoMo. That was on Monday. Now the sun is shining again. Hurray for that!!!

For some reason I feel like shooting in b&w lately. It will probably go away, but for now, I like my stuff better this way.

Second studio assignment for the Advanced Techniques in Photojournalism Class. This time my task was to photograph metal objects. I had some troubles finding an idea. Finally, I decided to take the chance and play with some steel spheres. Challenging, risky and fun. A lot of fun! The idea is not 100 % original. I browsed a lot of stock photography sites before going into the studio and my picture is the combination between two images I saw on the internet. One of them was a photograph of iron spheres arranged like pool balls, the other was a 3D rendered sphere on a checkered surface. I tried to reproduce the 3d rendered sphere in the studio, and I added a few other balls. I couldn't find big spheres so I had to use a macro lens. That's why the depth of field is so shallow.
