Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Sky Fire II | c2011

I was happy to see this subject for the weekly photo challenge and now that I finally figured out how to grab the URL for the widget and have placed it in my sidebar I feel official. The Challenge

Sky Fire II: I chose this image because I captured some freakish clouds                       during an experiment in shooting for one year with only my Smart Phone. The black cloud in only part of the scene and white clouds in other parts struck me as absurdly unusual.  The shape and the curves of the image painted themselves right before my camera eye. The settings on the camera allow you to Photoshop per say prior to image capture. I went through all the modes and decided on one particular setting to see what I could get. Depending on the aperture, ISO, white balance and time of day would really change the color and contrast of the subject. The final images are an array of different lighting situations and shooting techniques I used to capture the unknown and deliberate subjects as I was seeing and aspiring to at the moment.

365: One Year of Images Taken Only with a Smart Phone

Communication | c2011

This is 365:  I spent the last year photographing only with my smart phone. I didn’t set any rules just simply titled the project and let it evolve from there. Some months I produced no images, other months I produced hundreds. As the project evolved and ideas were developed many changes were made to what originally was going to be 365 images. It rolls and changes, I change my mind, and change again. Imagine a floating ribbon 1 mile long floating in the wind from a 100 foot tree in the desert. This is how I imagine the evolution of my project as it exists. Organized chaos. The editing process has allowed the project to evolve completely into what it is by letting the images speak for themselves.

The image quality of a smart phone is shit yet somehow I produced some arty images I wouldn’t have gotten with  my Nikon. 1thousand 4hundred and 18 images, 12 months of shooting and 3 months of editing down to 99 final images. Ninety nine images is a lot to visually process so I’m only showing 12 here because I want the audience to make the choice whether or not to view the complete project.
