10 in wine glasses

I know it has been way to long, and for that I am sorry. I thought I would make it up to you by showing you my favorite project this year. The idea was that we had to shoot a series of objects. I took it one step further and did a series of ideas. In this case the ideas were the 10 commandments.

How this happened was, I had been wanting to do wine glasses for a while now but I needed an idea to put them with. I’ve wanted to try something like this ever since I first found Dave Nitsche’s work. I wanted to make people think I guess.

We also had to do 10 pictures and that number sparked the idea of the 10 commandments. What would they look like in wine glasses… Concept moment. Then I just ran with it.

So can you tell what each one is?

Bleed

Okay, so this picture needs some explaining. The theme this week was CSI, and by connection, death.

The back story; the young lady in this picture (one of my dearest friends) lost the love of her life a while back. She didn’t take it very well and it landed her in a very abusive relationship. One night she just couldn’t take it anymore. While reminiscing about the past she decided to end it all.

Now originally I was going to have her realize that she was pregnant (I’m not sure who the father was going to be – either one works) and she didn’t want to bring the baby into the world she was now suffering in. I had a hard time getting my hands on a test in time for the shoot so the thought was dropped.

The coloring and the grainy quality give it such a creepy feel.

P.s. I don’t think the guy at the photo counter knew what to think. I had to print it out 20×30 for class so this thing was massive. I would have loved to know the thoughts that were running through his mind.

Sisters

I know I’m a little late this week, but It has been crazy. MacBeth opens in less then a week (this Wednesday actually) and I don’t know if I’m ready for it just yet. Don’t really have a choice though. 🙂

So this week was all about close personal relationships. I shot two of my friends how are enough like sisters (they get that comment often). I also call it the “My Imaginary Friend” series because the one makes the claim that she make up the other as an imaginary friend and everyone else is just using her as well. She isn’t real. Don’t you just love friends.

High fashion

Yes, yet another set of images. The idea here was fashion, and product. While I love these images on the screen, I’m still struggling to get them to appear correctly in the real world.

Working Class


Another Creative Photography project. This time we had to do industrial. I love the train shot. The clouds are wonderful. The colored on seems so deep, and I love the detail in the black and white building.

Once again. Let me know what you think.

Food As Art

Some of my creations for creative photography. Let me know what you think.

Dave Nitsche: Photographer

I love Dave Nitsche‘s concept work. His favorites of mine are the work he does in the studio with liquid and glass. All of his images say something.

He is one of the artists that I always look for new pieces from. If I had money I would even be willing to buy some of his pieces, frame them and then hang them for all the world to see. Sadly I’m an almost broke college student. Life doesn’t seem fair that way.

It was an interesting way I first found some of Mr. Nitsche‘s work. A friend of mine had to do a report on a photographer and I was trying to find some works on line that she would like. Then when we found one we were to go hunting after information on said artist. I, quite by accident, fell onto Dave Nitsche‘s work. Ever since then I’ve been periodically going back and admiring it, not only for how wonderful all his pieces looks, but for the messages that they convey as well.

It was recently I came across his work on Deviant Art. Now, I’m constantly getting updates on to what going on in his world from his Deviant page. (Nitsche’s Deviant Page)
