I'm happy to say that this quarter I have a great opportunity to continue working at night with artificial light. I will be working with this all quarter to start one of my portfolios for graduation next summer. These two images are from last week during one of the uncommon rainy nights in Denver. All feedback is welcome.

My first assignment for Advertisement and Art Campaign. I have a new idea for a project using filters and masks layered with daylight film, so I thought I would play around with it for this first project. If anyone has any experience with this and has some tips please let me know.
I will be posting a lot of work this quarter from my Advertising and Art Campaign class, and also from my Conceptual Studio class and would love feedback on how to improve my work. I have started a new series that explores some older memories and poems. This shot is the opening shot to the series and is to act as an entry way to the memories stored in the mind.

It is human nature to change things, to manufacture ways of manipulating the natural for benefit and convenience. Even darkness is not immune to this process. We light everything that needs to be seen and everything that can be seen during the day. Streets, facades, stairways, ally ways, the undersides of bridges and empty rooms. Our eyes are so used to this practice that our we have adjusted to see these things the same way we see them during the day in sunlight, we fail to see the colors and shadows that has been created unnaturally.
The series, Artificial Light, will be shot with a medium format camera on daylight balanced transparency film to show how artificial light affects the colors and shadows at night or in spaces completely cut off from natural light. The final output of the images will be to duratran and then face mounted on to Plexiglas. This will then slide into a handmade light box and lit with a 5500 degree bulb.
