Spaces

The more I photograph, the more I realize that I am drawn to very intimate spaces. Grand spaces generally don’t intrigue me nearly as much, at least in terms of my photography. I also have the tendency to be drawn back to the same space over and over, witnessing how it changes depending on the light or the passage of time. These images are random ones from the past month or so, of various spaces that you may have seen before, but perhaps under different conditions. Some are just brief moments that I photographed in an attempt to hold on to them in my mind; I found them significant in some way at the time, and wanted that moment to stick.

And, meet Gwynn, who lives in my studio. The plant’s growth is explosive; these image were shot just a few weeks apart. I plan to keep documenting the growth, but it is slowly (or not so slowly) taking over my studio I think.

As a bit of a teaser for you all, I just returned from a trip to New York City, so images from that trip will be up in the (hopefully) near future. Also, more moments of light are on their way. Happy Monday everyone!

moments of light 2

As some of you may have read in my last “moments of light” post, lately I have been completely obsessed with documenting the light around me. As a photographer I have always been interested in light, but lately it has become the most important thing. I’m still not entirely sure why it is such a dominating factor for me (and my work) lately, but I don’t think it will fade at least any time soon.

Most of these moments get documented on instagram, since I always have my phone with me. If you want to follow along with this series the best way to do so would be to follow me on there.

And a little teaser of what I’ve been up to on instagram. You will notice that I’ve been focused on a few different things over the past few weeks.

Also, I will be home in Minnesota this weekend, so expect to see images of my precious nephew and other spring in MN related things soon!

moments of light.

I have always been very interested in capturing moments of beautiful natural light. The way that light reflects off of things, shines through and wraps around, casting beautifully unique shadows and ripples of light, is fascinating to me. Lately I seem to be even more drawn (borderline obsessed perhaps) to these things, and often stop in the middle of whatever I am doing to capture these little moments.

The first two are from my phone, because that is what I consistently have easily available when these moments happen. And, unfortunately I accidentally cleared off some of my favorite images (or I expected them to be) from my SD card before transferring them to my computer. I’m hoping to re-shoot a similar thing soon, but for now here are some of my recently documented “moments of light” to share with you.

Blue Giraffe

This semester I moved to a new studio, one that has windows. I was so excited to finally have natural light in my studio, so I brought in some plants to decorate my windowsill. I still felt like I needed more color, and was inspired by all the gold-leafed or painted animals I had seen on Pinterest. So, meet Gerald the blue giraffe!

Also, I have noticed many new followers in the past few weeks, and I would love to meet you all and hear how you found my blog! Welcome to the blog and I hope you enjoy!

Father’s Day Craft

This summer I have been working as a nanny for three precious kiddos. I wanted to have them make something for father’s day (this post is quite late, I know) that would be something at least slightly useful, as well as meaningful to their dad. He works at a nursery, so after much thought I decided to have them decorate some planters. I found a white, triple herb planter at Target, and then bought some permanent markers and let the kids loose! I helped them plant some red petunias once they were done drawing, and then after they watered the plants we sat back and admired their work (for 5 seconds before something else caught their attention).

Catching Up…

I have a huge backlog of photographs sitting on my hard drive that I need to post. Since I have today off I figured it would be good to start catching up some. Brace yourself for completely random, unrelated images that span all the way back to April…

And expect a few more blog posts (with a little more cohesiveness to them) later today!
