Articles #001: “How to read a photograph like a book”

August 3, 2012

One of my purposes with this blog site is not only to expand my own knowledge and understanding; but to pass it along to others.

Today, I found and interesting article from that we can apply to all genres of photography.  The article covers seven different items to think about when looking at a photograph.  It reminds us that in order to learn the craft, it is important to study it.  I’ve often found myself asking the question- “but what am I supposed to be looking for?”  The article really broke it down by simply listing questions on what you ask yourself wen looking at a photo.  I really think this will definitely help me critique my own work! 


Experimental #001: Oil & Water

August 1, 2012

I picked up this fun experiment on photographing bubbles after mixing cooking oil and water from photographer Mike Moats .  Through a pretty basic set-up with a clear glass dish and scrapbooking paper I got some really fun pics.  My pyrex baking dish had some texture to the glass, so the images aren’t quite as crisp as I would like; but it’s definitely worth a repeat on a rainy day.

Check out Mike’s fabulous tutorial here…
