While in Athens, I stumbled upon an empty church, chapel. Anyway, I let myself in and went looking for interesting light. While I was looking, I felt these eyes watching me and turned around to see...the face in the window. I know he's underexposed....It all happened so suddenly...
Front lighting, back lighting, and side lighting. On generic film from japan.. Shooting with film makes me not want to shoot digital its so much more rewarding. Plus I just obtained a Hp scanjet scanner. It has back lit slots for film and slides to scan and can scan up to 9400dpi. I highly recommend it to any one who uses film or scans in illustrations.
Ps. I know there's not really a subject in the first image i was going for a washed out landscape that showed the shape of the treeline, granite and bushes.

We were in a class at the circus and there was light coming in from the ceiling. The light was bouncing from the the floor and hitting the door and creating this cool effect by making the door bright while everything else was darker. It is hard to tell with these photos. You just have to believe me.

I took this picture pre-Creative Circus. It sits on my desk at work and has a sticker attached that says "smile". Long story short, when I took the shot, I thought the Beluga whale was smiling, but one of my coworkers explained to me that Beluga whales are very territorial...and hate outsiders swimming in their tank. So, my smiling whale image is really a picture of a creature who's pretty upset. It's still funny to me, now that I know "Natasha" really wants to bite the diver.

So now that I know that it rains a lot here in Atlanta I can expect to see this more often. I was randomly driving around to different stores, in the rain of course. I saw this cool effect the rain made inside the car. I would love to see if i could recreate this in a studio.
