Study Abroad

So Mrs. Harkins told us yesterday about our study abroad trip and I have to say I am sooooo excited. We are going to be going to Austria, Italy, and Germany. I am hoping that I will be able to go on the trip, but I know its going to cost me a big chunk of change.  I better start saving now!! I think I am most excited about going to Milan, the fashion capital of the world.  Whenever I here of Milan I always think about fashion, and since I love fashion photography I think that will be the highlight of the trip for me.

Dorothy O-Connor

I was looking through ACP (Atlanta Celebrates Photography) and I ran across Dorothy O'Connor. I was looking through her stuff and the photographs that caught my attention were the "scenes" photography. Above is one of the favorite images from her. Check her out here.

Feature Picked

So this is the photograph that Mrs. Finch picked for my feature. Definitely not my favorite but I guess it works. I was continuously watching this guy and I guess I got a decent picture of him. I am hoping that I will be able to pull out a good grade on this one.

Class Tomorrow

So tomorrow in class we will be working on our set for the GTC Holiday Portraits. The set is coming along great but we still have a lot of work ahead of us. Day group took Mrs. Harkins shopping today for some items that we needed for the set. Tomorrow, I am guessing that we will be putting all those items into use. I am so excited to have this set finish and be able to start shooting next week. I can't believe it is so soon. It honestly feels like yesterday when we first started talking about what we wanted the set to look like. It is going to be a beautiful set when it is all said and done.

Dog Photography: Erin Vey

Animal photography has always been a great interest of mine so I decided to do some research and look at animal photographers. I came across Erin Vey and fell in love with her work. She is a lifestyle dog photographer, which means she basically shoots dogs in their everyday environment, which is able to bring out their personality. Check out her blog here or her portfolio here.

Mike Rosenthal

Ever since I saw Mike Rosenthal on America's Next Top Model, I have been a huge fan of his work. He is an awesome fashion photographer and also does some great commercial shots. Check out his work and his portfolio here.


Fall has always been my favorite season. The amazing red, oranges, and yellows of the trees makes me so happy and free! Today, before I left to go shoot my feature I decided to go shoot some of the fall weather. This is one of the images I came out with. I like the image, but I feel as if I could do a lot better.

Pride and Non-Prejudice

So I went to Gay Pride Atlanta today searching for my feature and I am hoping that I have gotten it. It was seriously some of the most fun I have had in a long while. I meet some great people and had some great conversation. I will definitely be going back next year. Drag queens, foam pits, and Delta flight attendants...all in a days work. Check out a few more of my Pride photographs here.

Landscape Photography

One of the reasons why I became so interested in photography was beautiful landscapes and the amazing images that you see everywhere. I have always wondered "How did that person get such an amazing photograph?". Why does landscape photography always catch your eye and make you go "ooohhh" and "awww" and "gorgeous"? So thinking about those questions, I decided to look for some tips on what I could do to enhance my landscape photography. I came across this fact-filled video on YouTube by Karl Taylor, who has shown to be an amazing landscape photographer. Check it out.
