I’m Back; Photography Updates To Get Back In The Groove

After a period of almost five months of no blog posts, I’m finally getting going on these again. In a moment of inspiration, I decided to dust off the lenses and flashes and start honing the photography skills again, as well as working on the previously-regular rhythm of bi-weekly blog updates. A post will come later (hopefully by the end of this week) about what I’ve been up to over the past months. In the meantime, here’s a few photos I took this past weekend. They’re not much, but it’s definitely a start!

The wooden bowls are all made by my father, who over the past couple years has become obsessed with lathes, wood turning, pen making, and bowl making. The surface underneath is an old chest that was made by my great (great?) grandparents, and was recently refinished by my mother. I thought the combination of the two together would work nicely.

It’s always nice to hear from other people about the photos I put up. If you like what you see, take 30 seconds of your time and leave a comment. Let’s be honest: chances are you’re either slacking off in class, procrastinating over some work, or surfing between this and <insert social media site here>. I’m sure you can spare 30 seconds. :)

Without further ado, here’s the photos. Next week I’ll throw up some photos of the work I have recently done on my new car, some of which I’m quite proud of.

    Dammit, you caught me being culturally insensitive. Oops. I will plead illness although I have been told about that repeatedly.

    Of the (nonsushi) bowl series, I like four and twelve best. Generally I’d say the most successful shots are those in which the object and the supporting surface don’t appear drastically different in terms of reflectivity. In my two faves, the bowl(s) seem to belong in the environment you’ve placed them, rather than feeling starkly out of their element as matte objects on a highly varnished surface.

    I like the four bowl series with the progressive shift in which bowl is in focus; unfortunately bowl four somewhat overshadow’s bowl two’s unique shape.
