Capturing Nature

It's really awesome when you come upon something magnificent in nature and have your camera with you.  I captured this spider web one morning when it had some drops of dew in it.

Star Fruit

I decided to take some pictures of star fruit the other day.  I think they are really interesting in taste, color and shape, so I wanted to capture them cut up and ready to be eaten.

Water Dam

This is a photo I took at Thurman Dix Reservoir.  I thought it was really beautiful the way the water fell in a bunch of different directions.

Dead Roses

For some reason I keep coming back to photographing dead flowers.  I want them to be seen as beautiful even though they are now dried out and dead.  Here's one I took today.

The Shadows of the Darkness

I think is is probably one of the most interesting pictures I've taken.  I'm not sure what to think about it.  It's so unique and I've never really seen a photograph like it.  What do you think?

Taking Back Sunday

Taking Back Sunday, and their opener Ace Enders came to perform at my college this semester.  They put on a really great show, and we sold a lot of tickets.  Here are some photos I took during the show.

Zebra Rose

Here's a recent picture I took of a rose.  I absolutely love the contrast with the bright pink color and the zebra carpet in the background.  I cropped it purposely as long and narrow because I wanted to show a lot of the carpet.  I tried to make the dimensions 8x10 but I absolutely hated the photo when it was displayed this way.  It has to be long and narrow.  In my opinion, this is what makes the photo.

Sophomore Review.. Over and Done

Sophomore Review went pretty well.  I got some comments that will help me to become a better artist down the road, which is good.  Most of the critiques I got were to make sure my work corresponded with my artist statement.  Can't wait to see what comments I get later on in the mail!

Colorado Hike

Here are some photos I took while on a hike in Colorado.  I loved how blue the sky was.  It was a really beautiful hike with amazing views of Boulder.
