Ambient Exposure

In our studio class we are working on Ambient Exposure. We were supposed to make environmental portraits. Capturing the subject in their usual day to day situation using props within that setting to tell about the person. We were allowed to use any available light, but not artificial light (flash). I found that I had a hard time with not cropping close to the subject, it sometimes lost the essential elements needed to tie the subject in with their environment. Here are the shots I got..

Jessica From Class!

This last one of Jessica, was taken with 35mm film. It was printed in the darkroom on fiber paper and scanned into photoshop so I could put it on my blog.

Girl's Night!!!

Friday night I was invited to girl's night over at Chris' house! We started the evening watching a little T.V. and chatting. Later Laura, Erin, Chris and I played a great game of Phase 10! Guess who won!! (i did! i did!!!). It was such a great night, I hope we do it again soon!

I think Laura was laughing at me because I was the permanent skip person..

Look at my phase #6! Woohoo! Guess that explains why I was permaskip girl!

The Stricklands!

I had the pleasure of photographing the Strickland family last week. It was a very bitter cold day, but they did well! I can not wait to see their little one when he arrives! Here are a few from their day!
