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!

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…

Happy belated Valentine’s Day everyone!!

I’ve felt the art block pretty hard for a while. Hopefully I’ll find a way out when I get back to school in a week.

I’ve been trying to push myself to experiment more with artificial light so consider this a conceptual and experimental image.

This was supposed to emulate the feeling of coming home from college and struggling how to be yourself when confronted with your past.

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.

Happy March!

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.

This is a combination of 6 images.

I’m finally feeling like it’s okay to break
into a thousand pieces
no one can replace
only I can find my way”
— Been a Long Day by Rosi Golan

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.

This is a combination of 8 images.

So sorry for the mega late upload, but I had some serious tablet and laptop trouble Friday night until Sunday afternoon which made Photoshopping near-impossible.

Alright! Another image that came out exactly how I had planned! Super duper thanks to Wandy, Rita, and Dan for helping me through the process of creating this thing.

And just like that, my time at the Anderson Ranch has come to a close.
I have learned so much and made such good friends in a matter of week; I feel like my head is going to explode.

With all this new knowledge and skill, stay tuned for more awesome art, particularly when I go back to school in a few weeks.
