Mmm, Blue Drink...

...Sugar, Water, Blue lol.

So here's my piece of glassware.

I also did it on a white background but it didn't turn out well because I metered wrong. It just goes to show that the slightest mistake in commercial can be the death of your image. Oh, also...I actually had to retouch this black-background shot a lot because I didn't take the time to clean it well first. So take 15 mins now than 2+ hrs later.

Bry Greenberg

Caleb was awesome. And so was the outcome of this pic.



Silverware. Supposedly, most photographers actually do not know how to light silverware. But the funny thing is, it's actually one of the easiest things to light...ever.

Check it out:

Yeah, I heart it, too.

Commercial Studio

So here's what I've been shooting in the commercial studio. These are just some of the intro shots that were done with 4x5 film and were meant to just teach us basic lighting and controls of the camera.

Box 1

Box 2

Round object

Phase 1 final

Like I said, no frills. But it still paves the way for the foundation for the commercial studio.

Box o' Luvin'

Ok, this isn't an update on Hallmark or anything but just an entry on a package from home.

So I get home for lunch and low and behold a box w/ my name on it is sitting outside.
Mom sent me a big box of junk food lol! No, I'm not a giant lardo or anything but basically, these are things I can't find here in Turners.

-1 large bag fritos honey bbq twists
-1 med bag fritos honey bbq twists
-1 large bag doritos spicy nacho
-1 med bag doritos spicey nacho
-1 med bag cheetos jalapeno cheese
-2 sm bags of shrimp chips
-1 bag nagaraya spicy flavor
-2 bags nagaraya garlic (breath kicks HARD after these...but they're soooo worth it.)

Also included was a package of Zest soap. Strangely, I can't find any here. Weird.

Have a nice day.
Save the whales.

Oh yeah, thanks mom!

Phase One Finals

So after a couple weeks of no sleep (and horrible quality sleep), phase one finals are finally over. All in all, 26 Prospect (aka Ethan and I) did pretty well. How the critique went was each section was called up two at a time and had to put a photo up. The teachers would then go up and crit them one at a time while cameras similar to the ones you see at walmart zoomed into them and projected them on the big screens for all to see. While embarrassing for some, E and I were "4/4" meaning that we both got good reviews.

So anyway, Here's some of my favs + they're parameters.
