i’ve kept trying my hand at double exposures and have really loved these last two!
normally with film, the double exposures have been of one certain image and then overlaid with a completely different image in a completely different setting. with these being digital, they were shot similarly and with the same lighting as well. the second one is even two very similar shots of the one rose, just in slightly different positions which i found wound up being pretty ghostly. thoughts?
i am a blessed kid this week! after celebrating the end of classes annd two years together (whoa), dru gave me flowers on friday and I haven’t stopped staring at them since. seriously though, they’ve opened so pretty! i couldn’t help but grab my camera and take a few shots of them today.
and in thinking about it, i actually don’t remember the last time i took my camera out for myself! so nice.
as a chronic, i cannot get out of bed pre 9:00, no matter how many alarms i set, unless its for something super interesting, therefore not for class, in most cases, even though i wake up and feel reallyreally bad it won’t ever change, again unless its for work or something, today is epic.
today is the last monday morning in which i can say on my way out the door “i have class.” realizing this is just as much a present as the rest of it.
on the few hours break i had one day last week we ventured down to skona house, and while i didn’t get many photos i added a good handful to my beach glass collection. (so much cobalt blue! so worth it.)
who wouldn’t want to start off a sunday morning with this little face?
seriously. suz (the beautiful momma pictured above!) is a good friend of mine & dru’s, and when she asked us to get together for a shoot with her little one i was in.
if i’m being honest, baby sessions are my favorite. who isn’t going to love a photo of a baby? and even in the madness i find those sessions really calming. is that weird? maybe its the oldest sister in me, or the old swim coach. i mean, hello… kiddy classes were the bomb. who else is going to say to me in awe, “wow, teacher! you swim like a dolphin… who swims like… like a mermaid!” now, while in reality that would probably look pretty messed up i still take it as a large compliment coming from a very shy three year old, and i laughed after that lesson for days. (thanks again grant!) seriously though, i say pass those sessions on.
on that note, the list of things to do/shoot when classes finally clues up is becoming endless. i love it.
this is the second last part of the grad catalogue series! funny how what has kept me busy for the entire month of february has made all the difference for my whole term, and for what I picked out for my graduation show too. speaking off… the grad show pieces got delivered yesterday! SUCH a relief.
back to… applications, work, and essays up to my eyeballs. 12 days to go!
