Painted Birdhouses

This week I finished off another roll of B/W film (Illford Delta Pro 400) in my Rolleiflex TLR.   I had fun shooting using some new filters I got last week at a camera show.  The birdhouse in the tree of my front yard was a good subject for trying out the yellow filter.  I got several good negatives that I scanned at a high resolution which I then printed on hot pressed watercolor paper.  The blue was tinted after printing where as the pink/yellow one was painted first and then printed.  I haven’t decided if I want to spray them with fixative or not yet.  Today was just a fun day to play for a few hours 🙂

My Photographic Journey Continues…

Studio Session-008-Edit

My focus has changed once again.  I have started the new semester at school and am now very busy with class assignments and projects.  This term I’m taking a Studio/Portrait class where I hope to become friends with my on & off camera flashes as well as their cousins: the studio lights and strobes…ah..so much to learn!  The other class is Color Photography where I’ll not only learn some color theory but how to calibrate my computer monitor for best color printing.  Also will be getting lots of lessons on Lightroom and Photoshop.  This photo is one of three required that I might turn in tomorrow for the perception of color assignment.  Pink.  Doesn’t it just scream pink but in a sort of subtle way?  I think so.  I just love my Epiphanie camera bag.  Can you tell?  hahaha  Comments and critique greatly appreciated!

Rainbow Sherbet and Dreams

Aidan Jones

Sherbet Boy


A little birdie told me that some of my art blog friends have been wondering about my silence on the blogs.  I have been quiet about posting but do continue to check on my friends blogs and see what they are up to.  I seriously took up learning photography last January and after a year of self instruction and then some college courses in photography, I am throughly enjoying this new art medium.  I realize I will never stop learning, be it photography or art or anything else that I set my mind to.

One of my greatest joys are my grand niece and nephews.  Capturing their childhood through paintings and photos has been so much fun.  On Friday we took 4 year old Aidan to the Aquarium of the Pacific for the day.  We took a mid afternoon break to walk along the waterfront and enjoy some ice cream cones.  I captured this as he was quietly enjoying  the last of his cone.

I’m going to continue eating rainbow sherbet and dreaming for now.
