There’s likely to be some sort of yearly retrospective at some point but until then these are (mainly) traveling shots. We’ve gone from Richmond VA to Huntsville AL and then to Jacksonville FL. All interesting highway paths. Shooting from the car is a challenge. It mixes aspects of landscape photography and the speed of street photography. I’m also shooting with the 85mm so that also adds an element of challenge as there is no zoom. I like marsh areas like this. The tugboat and the trees helped set it off. I tend to shoot silhouette shots at the beach. I liked the captured motion in this one. This guy was waving to cars on Christmas morning. People are interesting. A classic “See Rock City” shot. The barn is red. The road is unpaved. The roof is rusted. Another Christmas day shot. The Santa hat sets off the outfit. A huge number of vultures surrounded this particular pieceI guess “piece” is the right term. roadkill. We almost hit this vulture. I liked the strangely watercolor-like effect here even though the focus would likely have been better on the vulture. The mix of human made straight lines and the natural curves were the elements that appealed to me here. Someday I will go here. I’ve shot it a few other times from […]
10:00 -10:50 am | Tom Woodward will be your guide on this photo safari as we look at the world through different lenses. This shift in both perspective and attention has the potential to change how you think about many things. After a brief exploration of a few different types of photography, we’ll take our new considerations into the world we walk through every day. On our return we’ll share what we’ve captured and look at opportunities to extend these conversations beyond today’s excursion. I’ve been wanting to take a group of faculty out to take pictures since hearing about Abilene Christian doing it. Seems like it’s a good idea in a few ways. We look at our regular location in a new way. People get a chance to see how many interesting possibilities are right in front of us every day. In general the process opens up the chance to talk about lots of things that apply outside of photography – like the ability to tighten up action/feedback loops to make progress, framing things conceptually and then doing, trying to imitate styles, etc. etc. I made a quick website that morning to hold photos we took so we could have discussions around the photos after the fact. Participants could submit via the Jetpack post by email option or through […]
I liked this guy quite a bit and he was more than happy to pose for the picture. He even switched the newspaper around so it’d be visible without any prompting from me.Not that I ever really say anything to the stranger portrait participants in terms of posing. Another stranger portrait from the public park near where I work. I like patterns. This particular shot also has colors that I like. This felt more like a movie set than real life to me. It seemed too perfectly arranged. Another stranger portrait of some gentlemen warming up to do a dragon dance. I love coming across odd things like this. Yet another stranger portrait. I’m at 64 out of the 100 but it has taken a long time.
