Assignment #5 Sweet

I first need to dedicate this assignment to the sweetest woman I know! My lovely wife Lisa!

This is the sweetest day of my life.

These assignments have progressive have become more an more difficult.

Sweet has so many different meanings.

The definition that I have been trying to find the photo is the sweetness that we find with a loved one and the little things that we give each other. Coffee in bed, time to talk or learning from each other. The joys and the pains of raising children is so sweet. . How do you visualize this. These first two photos are trying to address this definition.

 

Being a beekeeper when I hear sweet I also think of honey. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to look at my bees in a different way. Without these bee knee’s there would be no honey.

Last but not least, I am a day late but candy can be so sweet.

Reboot – Assignment #4 Slow-motion or Motion

Ah, so assignment #4 needed to be redone. No video this time. Only stills.

2 for 4.

How did I do?

 

Assignment #4 Slow-motion or Motion

This has been the most difficult assignment to date. This is due to time, light and not wanting to fall into something that I had done many times before. May of these I wish I could get online the way that I envisioned them, though that would put me past my time limit. Here is the raw footage and the answer to Assignment 4.

 

The first, Belle Circle

 

The second, Ward 2

 

The third, The city

Assignment #1 Hair

Last week Lisa had met up with our good friend and photographer Law. She was discussing a class that she was taking and how they had a different photo subject every week to shoot. Lisa and I both liked the concept a lot and in the hopes of getting me through this moment of little shooting and seeing we decided to try it out.
