Lets see how long I’ll ride this one out

January 5, 2011

Back to reality

I rang in 2011 with a flu, so my plans to productive come the new year were quickly crushed with nausea, fatigue , and an overall feeling of being run over by a truck . However I started the week out semi fresh starting the ever intimidating endeavor of photographing everything I own. I’ve started with the category “ART” since it is after all the most difficult and all encompassing all things considered ( plus everything after that will feel like a breeze…hopefully) Here are some highlights of today: ( note none of the images are edited yet )

twenty-four cameras

Drawing supplies

crafty items

Cd jewelry items

Painting supplies

I’ve never claimed to know anything about studio lighting, in fact everything I do know came second hand from either students or professors, or the interweb. Im really displeased with the shadows I’m  still getting, the first photo of the cameras is the most successful ( irony?!)  Anyhoo I’m only working with 2 tungsten lights, ( if i had 2 more I think I would be able to eliminate those pesky shadows.) and one external flash attached to my ever lovely red Pentax K-x. At least me and my camera are getting some good alone time , and I’m learning its little tricks.

In other news, to go along with this project and themes of a more loose and figurative self-portrait I am also photographing everything I eat for a month:

Breakfast: cereal(w/soy milk),water,orange juice, (not pictured: coffee)

Breakfast: Cereal(w/soy milk),water,orange juice,(not pictured: coffee)

Second Breakfast: Leftover hors d'orderves with pesto, capicola,fresh motz., and bruschetta

Lunch: Leftover Haddock with tomatoes, and onions, ( not pictured, basmati rice)

Dinner: Chicken Marsella, salad, water, and red wine.

Its more impromptu, and a lot more annoying, ( I just want to eat it, not photograph it)

and the third installment of the figurative self portraits: All the hair I loose in the shower ( WARNING: the following image is gross and hairy in nature)

Tomorrow I will hopefully be finishing photographing all my art supplies, eat some more, and loose more hair.
