Surreal Photography

This assignment had several dimensions. In addition to being surreal, the photo was also supposed to be in black and white and have shadows in it. After experimenting with several ideas, I finally came up with one that worked. Hayley put on an old wedding dress and we headed up to our barn loft for the shoot. It was hard to keep a straight face because this photo does not resemble her personality at all!

Depth of Field Assignment

This was one of the funnest assignments I have done so far.  I ran the idea for this photo by my brother, Nathaniel and he was enthusiastic about the idea.  After decking out in western wear  he saddled up our mustang, Coco.  We headed into the woods for the shoot.  The photo below is my favorite depth of field shot.

And since she was already saddled up, why not ride her?

The Five Senses

This assignment required us to capture the five senses.  Credits for each sense are as follows ~ My eyes, Benjamin’s ear, Aubrey’s mouth, and Jonathan’s nose and hands.  If you can’t tell, Jonathan is holding a camera lens!  I intentionally had a larger space between the top and bottom rows.  I felt that it looked better that way.  

Feet

This assignment required us to capture feet.  Although I normally take new photos for each assignment, I dug into my photo archives for this picture.  I took it last year during a photo shoot for some family friends.  They actually wound up displaying this photo with the following verse at their house.

Romans 10:15 ~ And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
