Okay, so here are some more HDR images taken with the 5D. I am super excited because I feel that my growing knowledge and experience is leading to some awesome images. It doesn’t hurt to have some cool subject matter as well. This series was done for my Creative Photography class at UCM.

To really appreciate these, click on the image to see a bigger size.

Here is my latest self portrait. Lets see if you can figure out what is going on here.

As my viewers may have noticed, lately I have become enthralled with the philosophy of identity. No particular reason other than the subject matter leads to a myriad of photographic possibilities. So, I have begun a project that documents my day to day materialistic identity. Materialistic I say? Yes…materialistic. Do I consider myself such type of person? No, but I too fall to the trap of it once in awhile. In order to study this enigmatic idea of appearance and identity, I must understand myself. Therefore I will routinely be photographing myself in my own car’s window. It is after all part of ones appearance; the car you drive says a lot about an individual. Well, it supposed to. (according to my theory)

I know, this might be some scatter-brained idea that will not amount to anything. But, if it does than I have accomplished what I set out to do. Plus, I will be using my creative juices all the while. I have enclosed a sample of what I am doing. Usually when I work on a project, I do not show the product until completely finalized. I am showing the beginnings to motivate me, as well as set the standard to improve upon. Keep in mind that these images are not supposed to be, “WOW” or “AWESOME” type images. These are documentation, with the real art being the methodology and output of the philosophy behind the images. I hope this makes some sense. I am experiencing a major high right now and had to get my ideas on paper(???)…okay, on the screen. hmmm Oh, I am “high” on caffeine, so don’t go calling my parents. They are well aware of my addiction and have already enrolled me in CA.(caffeienaholics anonymous) Well, I am off to do something else….Although I haven’t decided what….Maybe I will go skinny dipping in the pool….naw my neighbor might like that too much. teehee Sorry to all those who don’t get it. Trust me, its funny.

Leaving a Trace

My Trace

No matter how hard people try to not leave a trace of themselves behind,

it is impossible to think that we will in deed be invisible.

As I walked around the Nelson Atkins Art Museum in Kansas City, I came upon this huge window. There I stood, looking myself in the eye. I realized that the image before me was very impacting to me. It was as if I was looking at a stranger, but looking at my best friend. I guess that is how we all feel at times, is it not? We seem to know ourselves so well, but not at all simultaneously. Hmmm. Ponder on this idea for awhile.
