I love growing things. My redneck garden (in black pots) is producing and all the green reminds me to be thankful for all the rain! shot shallow, light diffused by large oak trees, a bit of backlighting on the grape tomatoes...the flower is okra in the makings...
I have always been a fan of how Guess uses black and white photography in their ad campaigns. The lighting on theses blows me away. I've had issues bouncing light on to the faces of models, when shooting outside, without it looking out of place. Theses shots are some that I will use to see how the model's face should look.
Now if only I could find a model like that...

I tried to approach the shooting of these apples like I was shooting a portrait. I tried reflecting the light from the sun to add some dimension to them. The rotted part of the second apple was used to give a depth to that apple and I put the other in a vise because I liked the details of the metal. In Lightroom, I pushed up the contrast on both shots due to the brightness of the sun that made the images a lot more flat that they appeared to the eye.

Shot early evening. I guess its a little abstract but I enjoy shooting the sky when the suns rays are piercing through the clouds.
Driving by the local airport and liked the way the light was pinging off of the airplanes. Shot at ISO 100 at f/16.

These shots are by one of the people who pointed me to the school. I was on Flickr searching Creative Circus and found this guy's stream. Malik Williams. He graduated recently from the program. When I saw his work it made want to enroll in the program. Following his Flickr stream from the begining, I can see the growth in his work. I still follow his stream (as well as his blog) and find inspiration in how he coninues to grow as an artist.
