So, I was perusing the latest issue of Real Simple magazine and came across a page featuring a photograph by Barry Underwood. He travels a lot and, with the help of another artist, marks the landscapes he shoots with LED lights or light installations. Gorgeous.

Tim asks, "IS THIS MAGICAL?" to all of his shots, holding his fingers in a frozen position looking up, his face in a gesture that reminds me of Emeril, asking his audience if he should spice it up a notch. I'm just working on this quarter going from "Bad To RAD." It is not easy to live up to the lingo of Tim Moxley, so I thought this post I would leave it to the experts. I was inspired for our black on black and color of our choice backgrounds for next week's assignment. Hopefully it will inspire you too. The top is from Coppi Barbieri Photography and the colorful photos below are from Jeff Von Hoene Photography.

I stumbled on a photographer tonight who had shot after shot based completely around our demo in class tonight. You can see from the examples that you can make a simple clean shot on white very creative and graphic. You can find him at: www.jimhuibregtse.com.
I like the crop in this one, as well as the subtle gradient across the label.
Here is a good example of our knife shot demo using cosmetics.
Alec Soth is a documentary photographer that I love love love!
This is a photograph from his NIAGRA project.
He does some really cool stuff and has some awesome stories.
I love this photo, I like how is represents the culture that he was experiencing.
and the time of day is awesome, the sky look amazing!
check him out!
These images are done by Lori Nix, who to quote herself "is a non-traditional photographer." She builds her own sets and has to take into account materials, light, size, and everything else. The image above I love her style because she not only pays close attention to detail in her sets, but also she pays very close attention to how light would hit these same objects in real life.
I really enjoy Rankin's work. I love the different lighting techniques he choses for each photograph, they are highly effective and striking to me. His shots always have a creative twist to them as well. Would love to take pictures like this, someday.
Shooting primarily with available light, Vincent is known for his captivating aerial and tilt shift photography as well as HD video work with the new Canon 5D mark II. Check out a quick explanation of his photographic work here, plus his website with plenty more images and film work here. Since video is a definite part of digital photography's future, it doesn't hurt to see what current users are up to.
