The Cost of Forgetting (part 4)

I recently gathered and painted enough objects to shoot a new color. It was a pretty quick shoot resulting in only a few images, and I’m still wanting a bit more variety in objects, but overall I really enjoy how these turned out.

I also just finished spraying objects with the next color this evening (as you can see below), so I should have some multiple exposure images to share this week!

The Cost of Forgetting (part 2)

Time for a few more images from my current graduate work! If you missed the last post, I would suggest reading it first, so that this post will make a bit more sense. This time around I am sharing the multiple exposures from the white objects. I still have the glass ones to share, and then hopefully by that point I will have a new color ready to photograph and post.

White Still Life

Another round of still life images for you all. These were shot the same day as the blue still life, as well as the second round of glass still life images. I have been loving the simplicity of these still lifes; they are quiet and rather understated, two things that I really appreciate these days.

Blue Still Life

If you have been following along lately, you have seen that I am photographing monotone still lifes. Besides the glass and white objects, I also shot some blue objects. I don’t have as many objects painted blue at this point as I would like, so hopefully after building up some selection I will re-shoot and have more images to share.

Glass Still Life

I shot more for my graduate work the other day, and once again after finishing the “serious” work I played around a bit with the light and my glass collection. I am always so fascinated by how light shines and refracts through glass objects. The glass can look perfect, and then once you see the shadows cast all the imperfections become visible, and the light seems to bounce every which way. Each object, despite looking the same or at least very similar, casts a unique shadow. I don’t think it is something I will ever get bored with.

White Still Life

Besides the glass images, I also shot a round of white objects. The end result for these will be similar to my Remembering The Everyday series, but for now I want to share just the single images because they are interesting me as well.

The composites are finished, but I need to live with them a little longer before I decide to share them. I may however share more of the glass still life scenes in the mean time. And, as a bonus for this post, here are two images I took with my phone while wrapping things up and playing with the light.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Glass Still Life

My graduate work had been in a bit of a drought for most of this summer; in part because of being sick for so much of it, and in part just because I was feeling very stuck. Yesterday I finally decided to be proactive and shoot, so I tore apart my bedroom to create a makeshift studio of sorts (behind the scene image below, with the fabric backdrop already torn down). I haven’t edited them most of them yet, and haven’t pieced them together, but this was the first one I got to and was pretty excited about the image on its own, so I wanted to share.

6530webWhile I was wrapping things up with the more “serious” images, I decided to play with the light a little, since I love the way light works its way through glass.

And as mentioned, the behind-the-scenes image. The sheet was held up over the window using blue painter’s tape. When the light is right and motivation strikes you make things work!Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
