I stuck with the 100mm macro lens this week. I think it resulted in a fairly different focus. It may also be a result of it being Spring and my recent trip photographing plants with a biology professor. The fan has a surprising amount of botanical diversity.
It has taken me quite a while to get to 19. Clearly, I tend to do this project in fits and starts and I do much better when I leave town. Because the Universe has a sense of humor, I will be in Las Vegas for BlackBoard World and I’m hoping that will result in some interesting opportunities. Despite the practice, it still isn’t an easy thing for me to do. I’m always fairly awkward asking although I think I recover better than I did initially. It is interesting to look at the gender, age, and race of the subjects. It probably says quite a bit about me. I’ve only been turned down three times. 86% is a pretty decent success rate. One of the rejections was from a police officer who “got in the habit” of refusing to have his picture taken when he was in an elite military unitUnverified by external sources. In any case, I’m glad I started this project. I intend to finish all 100.
I feel compelled to lead with this unfortunate find. Hopefully, there’s a better explanation than a serial killer in training. cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward I don’t know if other people see these like urban still lifes . . . cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward Justin Bieber and friend cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward UMW comes to visit cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward
