FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for a couple of days to make this image and I finally was able to make it today. The high tide was a little overbearing, but my sister and I braved it for this image.
A little teaser for the shoot I did with Wandy and Ricky this afternoon. Sorry for the lack of activity! I’ll be posting more soon, now that school is back in session and I’m settling back into the work groove.
Wandy and I ventured into a different part of the woods to creat this. I was trying to make this another Photoshopped nighttime image and I was playing with the instructed layers and ended up loving this instead.
You should definitely check out Gregory Crewdson’s work.
Major thanks to Wandy for her smoke bombs and help capturing this image.
Alright! Back to images that I wanted to make back when I started this whole thing!
I’ve been planning this image — from sketch book to shooting to editing — all week, which is exactly what I intended to do for this entire project, though I’ve only successfully followed through a hand-full of times.
I’m immensely proud of this. It took me 6 hours to edit. The original images were taken at noon on Friday.
Brooke is absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and I am so thankful that she excitedly volunteered to model for this week’s 52. Thank you so much for modeling for me — you were fantastic!
Well, this is it. This project has been very interesting and happened to document a very difficult year in my life. Much like my 365, I’m quite proud of most of the images, but I know I could have put more effort into most of them.
Via Flickr: We had a big snow storm roll through Amherst again this week and I knew I wanted to take advantage of the natural light. Many thanks to Jenna and Wandy for helping me create this.
The process of making this is definitely what I want to aim for with this project: I have an idea for a concept during the first part of the week, shoot before Friday, and edit Friday and Saturday before posting.
It’s weird that we’re already 7 weeks into the new year…
Finally, posting on time! I was able to shoot with Emily again this week while it was still warm out (it snowed the next day!). This is an extra we made for my final project. Look for updates with that soon!
Via Flickr: This week Coldplay’s “Midnight” was released and I instantly fell in love and knew I had to create this image; inspiration practically hit me over the head. I couldn’t be happier with how this turned out and how today in general went. I haven’t shot in RAW in a while and it was great to work in it again. This is a combination of about 15 images.
Via Flickr: What’s really great about this project is that I can sketch out a design and then follow through with it during the week and post it on Saturday feeling content. The completion of the process is so satisfying, particularly when I print something I really like, like last week’s image.

As I’ve mentioned, my family and I left our home for the last time on Wednesday so I felt the need to create one last image in the house. I wanted to include all of us in this image: my mom’s room, my sister modeling, and my camera.
