Intro to Digital Photography with Dee Peppe

So this week I am TA'ing a class with the wonderful Dee Peppe.  Although it is an Intro to Digital class it's interesting how much you can learn the second time around!  By a fabulous coincidence Dee also went to SCAD except to get her MFA.  Being able to create photographs again has been wonderful, and doing something I love without having an assignment.  I just need to keep doing this!

Photographing Residential Architecture with Brian Vanden Brink!

So this week I am taking a class at the Maine Media Workshops.  So far it has been amazing.  I am learning so much which is always awesome.  Along with learning about architecture and seeing light within it we have been to some beautiful locations!

Fred Bess Cider Press!

When I was in high school I worked at a farm stand that pressed their own cider.  It was probably one of the most exciting things about working there.  I was always curious about the process but never asked to watch.  So when this opportunity came up I was wicked excited!
Yesterday I spent a few hours in Woldoboro, Maine at the Bess house pressing cider.  It was nice to have a good portion of Maine Media there as well.  So with this new adventure, if you will, I decided to explore with the Olympus EP-2, soooo much fun! So here are a few images from the day!

I have been on a roll this week with being creative.  It has been way too long since I have been able to let go and just create! A friend showed me a tutorial on create the tilt-shift look and creating miniature scenes, so here we go!

I've done it! I have made my own lensbaby!! I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I researched it and made my own! I used a 75mm enlarger lens and also a 50mm lens.
The images below used the 50mm lens which I liked and it gave you this super macro feel but the 75mm enlarger lens feels like I will get more out of it and a better range to shoot.
I thought I was pretty successful and I will definitely be having a lot of fun with this!

Maine: The Way Life Should Be...

I have been up in Rockport, Maine for the past 2 months now and I am having a blast! I have met so many great people along with great photographers.  I have learned a lot while being here and I only have 1 month left.
The most upsetting part of this job is that I don't have as much time to shoot as I wish I did, however here is an image shot from my apartment one night... the mixture of the intense sunset and the fog rolling in from the right was really cool!

Maine Media Workshops!

So this past weekend I was back up in the New England area!  I had job interviews at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport for a position this summer.  I am really excited about it and hope that I get the job.  They have a beautiful campus and awesome courses as well.
