Artificial Light










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.

Blue Lake

Whenever people hear that I am going to school for photography they always say, "Well, you picked a great spot to do that. Colorado is beautiful." Referencing landscape photography, assuming that I must do it since I live by the mountains and that it is the main reason people take pictures. I'm not a big fan of that conversation, but I did get to hike up to Blue Lake this fall and yes I took some pictures of nature and mountains and of course flowing rivers wrapping through the trees, so here you go.





Old Unseen





Just a few images buried in my hard drive space. I thought some of these worked well as diptychs.

PSA scholarship






I've put together 10 images for a scholarship through the Photographic Society of America. Please let me know what you think, I would like to hear what people think of the images as a group and how they work together and flow. Thank you very much.

Golden City






It's been a stormy and rainy spring in Denver, so I decided to go out with the camera downtown and try to capture the atmosphere and mood of the storm with the reflections in the glass buildings.

Car Shoot at Red Rocks


I had a great opportunity to learn how to shoot cars from my instructor Tom Moore. Living in Colorado gave us some great spots to shoot in.

Opposites, Life and Death


I am very excited about the studio class I have this quarter, the assignments are built around a theme but are very opened ended. Our first was opposites, which I had a lot of fun with. This is my interpretation of life and death.

Sculptures

It's always good to support other up and coming artists, so I thought I would share some work from sculptor Joe Wilkinson. He and I shot these in the studio and I hope they show you his exceptional use of texture. If you would like to contact him about his work, his e-mail is joe.wilkinson@gmx.us

Christmas in Detroit 2008





Detroit was very cold over Christmas, but I managed to shoot a few good shots downtown while I was home. I hope you enjoy and I will be developing more double exposed negatives from the transit series next week.
