Secret Garden (Chrome Film)

Inspired by and named after the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett - "The Secret Garden" Shot this a few months ago!

It's my friend Anna Tucker and her gorgeous tights!

She had the flower behind her ear all day and we were walking down this stone path. I look down in the viewfinder of my Mamiya C330 and see her legs against the stone and HAD to shoot it!

I love the tonality of it all, very summery.

Camera - Mamiya C330
Film - Kodak Ektachrome Daylight Balanced
Processing: E6

"What is the Use of a Book?" thought Alice, "Without any Pictures or Conversation?"

My mom bought me this book as a surprise this past week, and she always knows the perfect thing to get for me, so I'm dedicating this image to her. This was done in about 10-15 minutes! So not as elaborate as some of my other set ups have been.

My mom is always inspiring me.

My first Alice in Wonderland Still Life.

A new Wonderland shoot is coming soon!

Christmas in July, Bokeh in June

Large View Please!

It's Holly Rose Mann and her fabulous d90 everyone!

This was shot for my small format class in which we were told to use bokeh as a compositional element. This is what we came up with.

It's also a follow up to THIS shot
Have A Very Bokeh Christmas

But I LOVE the bokeh in that lens, it looks like something out of 2001: A Space Odyssey

Ice Cream Kisses like Summer So Sweet.

This is the ever-so-lovely and quite talented Natalie Lowdermilk! Shot this a few weeks ago at Yum-Yum's in Greensboro. (Famous for their Ice Cream, so be sure to try it out)

The window lighting was SO beautiful on her face, so I took aim with my trusty MKII and shot away!

Happy Summer!

Another shot done for my product lighting course.

We had to use available light (outdoors, or window light) and set up a product shoot, I actually find myself really loving setting up these product shoots.

Tackled this one in about 30 minutes. Hope you guys enjoy!

Final Portrait

This was my final assignment for my portrait class, I shot my mom in a field of red clover, I was really pleased with the way it turned out.

It was shot on Kodak E100G Chrome Film!

Parks and Recreation

This week our class assignment was to shoot things that were Park and Recreation related, so I went to a few different parks and put together this park ad mock up!

Hope everyone enjoys it!

Revival Antiques

This weekend I went to Revival Antiques in Raleigh, NC. They are an AMAZING business that take in old antiques and restore or reimagine them and then resell them.

They also sell furniture that has not been altered, or you could bring in a piece you own and pay to have it reworked!

Check them out!

The fading mountains in the background are actually Boone.

So many Christmas trees!

Distant Dreams, Fleeting Conciousness

Took a drive up to Boone yesterday with Holly, and Walker! The light was beautiful so we drove up the mountain to get the best possible view.

I love the mountains, I could live there my entire life and be more than happy.


More from Boone later this week.
