Last night a couple classmates and I went to the Chevron Substation in North Burnaby for one of our classes. It was quite an adventure but a lot of fun. I love doing industrial photos and felt like I could have sat there all night. Here are a couple of my favourites.
An assignment for one of my classes was to create a joiner similar to David Hockney’s work. It was a lot of fun and turned out really well. I think I am definitely going to do more.
Last weekend I went hiking with a few classmates in Deep Cove. It was a beautiful hike and lent a hand for some interesting photos.
And for my last post of the day is ink in water. I tried this a few years ago on 35mm B&W film (one of the first few posts on here). Needless to say it didn’t work out because you can only enlarge 35mm so much before it gets really grainy. I also had to increase the contrast a lot during printing. But since I recently bought a 60mm macro lens I decided to try again. This time I used coloured calligraphy ink instead of black india ink. They react the same in water so it all worked out fine. I really loved the result but have many, many, many more images that did not turn out. I used an aperture of 2.8 so I had a very small depth of field to work with and had to change the focus point while releasing the shutter so I could catch the quickly falling ink. I love them though and that’s all that really matters.
In my program we get to go exploring a lot and we end up coming across really cool places or events. Here are some images taken over the past few months in and around Vancouver.
Our light painting class ended a while ago but it was interesting to do. It’s very time consuming but allows full creativity so it’s fun. Although I will admit I have had enough of it, for a while anyways.
So I’ve finally gotten around to updating my tumblr. I’m really loving my program and getting to do all the neat things we get to do, like learning key shifting and lighting products. Product is definitely where my interest lies.
I love the glow behind but because I wasn’t paying attention I have a terrible reflection from leaving something on the table :(. I’m going to do it again and hopefully it turns out better!
Key shifting with speed lights at the Urban Winery in Vancouver. Really neat place and great models to work with!
This was a class workshop using a grid spot modifier on a strobe.
This I submitted for our first ever critique and got good reviews!

I have an interest in product/commercial photography so I made a set up in my kitchen on the table with cardboard sheets and a portable flash.
