Just more weird flash portrait photography. As always, more on Flickr! I also do nature things. It’s not just self portraits. Promise.

Happy weekend!!!

Golden Dinosaurs in an Unfinished Bathroom

DSCN2276

 

Soooo clearly the last week is one of those weeks in which I remember that I greatly enjoy photography. I like to try and branch out from my normal “trees and nature” routine sometimes, just to see what else I can come up with. Lately I’ve been inspired by two things: The gold dinos that live on my bookshelf and the amateur flash look of American Apparel ads (despite their controversy, I think they use cool techniques).

See above ^^^

So I took advantage of my unfinished bathroom’s white walls and did a late night flash photo shoot. I found the pictures were better when the room was dark, but a few of them worked pretty well when the lights were on. Once I got them into my computer, I upped the brightness, contrast, and highlights to get the extra flash effect. Before we continue, I would like to make a disclaimer that these aren’t the excessive selfies they seem to be, I just have no one else around late at night to model for my photo shoots. So here they are.

And then I guess with these I was trying to say something like “Smoking away a flower is as much a shame as smoking away health because health is beautiful like a flower”????? I don’t know. Something like that. They aren’t supposed to be pro-smoking.

Washed
Sooooo basically I thought this was a cool composition and wanted to bring some surreal color  and contrast into it annnd that’s all…BUT the other ones are more interesting!

River of Dreams–At first I put it sideways because it looked abstract and cool, and then I realized that this is what the shoreline would look like to someone waking up in the river and trying to get their bearings–my writer/artist imagination takes over with a lot of these photos.

Starboard

I’ve been thinking about writing a fantasy novel called Starboard, and I edited this picture of a perfectly normal riverbank until it fit the atmosphere I pictured the island would have at dusk. I find that a lot of photos I take with the aim of imposing my imagined/edited atmosphere onto them so that they match the magical places in my head, which are usually enhanced versions of the “real world”.

Until next time frands (Then I will be sharing some golden dinosaur themed photos),

Just Posted: These Three

indibee

Bee Still, as per usual light leaks and a vintage filter. (I now realize that I should have made this a profound Save The Bees moment.) I found this guy perfectly preserved in the bottom of a wodden box while I was cleaning out my camper. This camper also has a vintage floral couch, and I thought “Hey! Opportunity for an indie photo!”  I buried him afterwards with some honeysuckle, because the littlest creatures deserve honor, too.

#indietrash#proud flickr Sunsplosion, yet another leak and a warm filter. Took this biking home (my favorite time to do anything outside is around sunset because HELLO MAGIC) and could not resist. flockrrrr A Morning for Adventure, amazingly, NO leaks! Taken on the morning of a family trip to Maine, which was, indeed, an adventure. Find more on Pinterest and Flickr! (links) ❤ Morgan

Just Posted: Lollipopped

Aloha frands…in an effort to get myself back into photography which is something I love but never give myself time for, I’m trying to upload a new photo to Flickr every other day, and also to share it here. Sooo today’s photo is Lollipopped, and is literally me behind a lollipop on vacation. As one does. On vacation. I used pixlr for editing with a soft canvas overlay and muted vibrancy. Whee!
