This is a photo by Dimitris Theocharis I like this photo because of the color as well as the brightness and darkness of the photo. The length of the shadow tells me that the light source was smaller and up high, the way the sun would create a shadow early morning or later in the afternoon. Even though the shadow leads you out of the photo it also leads you back to the model.

Faking Smoke Photos with a Plastic Bag

This is pretty interesting - I came across a series of shots by Edi Yang. They aren't perfect in terms of simulating smoke, but still a pretty interesting study in abstract images using everyday things. Click through to see the article on PetaPixel.

Michael Schwartz

Here are some images that highly inspired me from his collection. He does an amazing job controlling light and I found it really interesting how versatile he is. He does a huge range of all photography. Stunning images. 

Also, I am loving Bradford Gregory's fashion work.

What Remains is Complicated

I went to high school with Joe and it's been quite a while since we've spoken. He lives in Brooklyn, NYC now. He shoots primarily medium format film, and has a habit of capturing pretty epic scenery. This is just one of my recent favorites.

Interior Shots!

These are also photographs taken by Jeff Wolfram. I LOVE the colors and the directional lines in each photograph!

Architechtural Pic #1

This was taken by photographer Jeff Wolfram who is an architectural and interior photography.

"I am very enthusiastic in providing quality creative architectural, interior & industrial photography. Whether it's a commercial, residential, institutional or an industrial enterprise my drive is to create energetic images that both communicate the beauty found in your project as well as have true visual impact on your audience"His images are stunning and I never knew that architectural photography could look like this! It is making me excited for next weeks class!

Night Clouds

I personally love clouds and the sky (as you can tell this is the second time I am posting a picture that has them in it.) I took this a couple of weeks ago and I was trying to capture the awesomeness of the sky mixed with the menacing looking clouds coming in. With little natural light and the street lights that came on this is what happened.

Water, Water Everywhere

I really like this photo, mostly because it is entering into that dream like place in the mind. The light in this photo is very soft and has that mystical quality to it. If the light was any other way the photo wouldn't be interesting.

Architecture at 180MPH

The subject isn't architecture. However, Bland makes spectacular use of the surroundings to showcase the cars he shoots. I've been following his work for about a year or two and I'm amazed at pretty much everything he pumps out.

Dancers for Tiffany H

First thing I ran across this morning was these images that reminded me of Tiffany's dancer from last night's critique. Tiffany, I hope you see these. Katie D.

Fun in the almost sun

Up frighteningly early and before the crack of dawn to make pictures. Yes, it was cold, and yes I had to bribe him with food. The Highlands turned out to not offer very good morning light as there are so many trees packed into such a small area, but this came out rather nice. Using a single strobe and soft box with just daylight in the background.

Locked in a Vegas Hotel Room with a Phantom Flex

Tom Guilmette makes television. & while working a gigi in Vegas he got to try out a brand new Phantom Flex high speed digital cinema camera, which shoots at 2,564 frames per second.

He put together an awesome video that shows each frame in slow motion and then at regular rate.
Since I haven't figured out (if that is or is not possible) how to add videos on here I just took screenshots of it.

(click the link in the title and it'll take you there)


I also love this series by Johann Frick! I think it's really creative and it actually looks like they are floating to me.

Johann Frick

So, I just came across this guy, Johann Frick, on this website. I love how quirky and fun these photos are! I think it's a really cute concept!

Gilles-Marie Zimmermann

I really like his style (i am pretty sure the photographer is male)
The lighting is really neat and I like to reference it
On his website he has some a album called simplicity and its really cool its all portraits on
white and grey backgrounds.
I love it!! Nice for inspiration!

Angela Photography

"A graduate of University of Georgia and Art Institute, Angela gleaned inspiration from noted photographers Erwin Blumenfield and Mathew Rolston to jumpstart her dream of becoming a photographer. However, Angela's road to success was paved with many obstacles. Early on, she recognized that breaking into a male dominated industry would be a struggle. Morris recalls her years as a rookie photographer. "I was told that women were too emotional and couldn't handle physical work." "

I like her style!
