this is photo taken by a favorite photographer of mine, keegan gibbs, and is not altered in any way and was shot on film. photos like this really inspire me and also proves that many things can be done in camera instead of in photoshop

I have been inspired! The web is full of websites, for self-proclaimed as well as professional photographers. I get a lot of ideas from the website imgfave.com. It is an image database and I have found some images that make me think about how the image was created, how the lighting was used to create the mood or story being told.
I like Jeff Morgan's use of lighting, he makes high key high key for one! I love his use of color and contrast and I especially love the way he also plays with shadows and uses them to add to the image. I like that idea. I will add images shortly (the server will not allow me to upload right now) but his website is a great start.
Here is another photographer that I really like!!! I normally really like vivid strong colors. But i really like how much detail he has in his photos!! The texture is so great. I love how my taste in what i like in photos is being opened up. Click the title and go check him out!

Here are some shots i took a while ago. I love smoke photos and decided to try it one night. It took me a while to figure out how to light it and i took a ton of photos to get a few that turned out good. These are some that turned out good. I cant wait to learn strobe so i can try again!

I have learned over the course of the semester that I have a thing for liquids and pours. I love when the photographer captures movement and when the principles that we have covered to shoot liquids and glass are evident. Steve Nozicka's work is a great example!
