I haven’t shared images from my phone in quite some time, or from my camera even for that matter. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately. But I have been shooting, and have a plethora of images to share, including lots of my favorite subject. In fact, I have so many of light, that I am going to break it up into multiple posts. So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy these moments of light on this fine Wednesday night.
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.
I finally downloaded the WordPress app for my phone, so I decided to do some posting of images I take with my phone on a more regular basis, starting tonight.
The light tonight was so lovely, and beautiful shadows were falling everywhere in and around Scott’s house. I don’t have my camera with me, but I ran around with my phone snapping away.
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.
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!
I have had this idea in my head (title and all) for quite a few weeks, and finally got around to it. More to come for sure, I had a tough time deciding on one.
Also, once again I have entered a contest which requires votes. I would so appreciate every vote I can get, so please, go vote for my portfolio and spread the word to as many people as you can! They have a quick and easy way of sharing my portfolio through facebook and twitter among other things, so get the word out! And of course, thank you so much for all the support everyone!
I am extremely accident prone, and pretty much every day, no matter what I am doing, I manage to get a bruise or scratch or lump or something. I was cleaning up and organizing my house today, and was reaching behind the metal shelves in the closet, but my arm got caught on the end of one of the poles, resulting in this scratch, along with 5 other ones below it. And yet, this is just a typical thing.
