Info on the paynage

Howdy the names Aaron, and this is my attempt at taking a photo a day and posting it here for everyone to see starting january 1st 2010. I know, I know it’s not original.

UPDATE: Ok, so I'm not getting one out everyday anymore. But hey at least I'm still working at it!

Bit about me and my life of creating images... I’ve been taking photos well back into the days of film. I’ve spent a couple years shooting only black and white and developing in the dark room and loved it. Fast forwarding to the days of the pixel I’ve since abondoned film and have gone all digital (Sorry film! I will always love you, I’ve been seduced by the instant gradification).

Recently I’ve been becoming obsessed with studio and strobist lighting.

Gun with a gun pointed at viewer

I was inspired to take a photo like this because of the video game Modern Warfare 2. I Had to take quite a lot of shots to get the gun and my face just right. I think I look pretty crazy, so I think I hit the mark. Sorry camera for pointing a gun at you. It wasn't loaded, I promise!

Ford Bronco

This is my neighbor's Ford Bronco. It's got a rough exterior but has a great style and beauty of it's own. My neighbor has such a love for this vehicle that he even wants to be buried in it one day. It seems rare that a vehicle really reflects their owner and vis versa. It's a beautiful thing... Keep on Truckin.

self portrait black and white lighting study

This was just some lighting studies that I was messing around with.

Dark and cold portrait

There's a small light above the church door out in front of our place. At night it casts some great light so I thought I would take advantage. I had to use a reflector to bounce light back up into the face.

Skookum Indian sign Wenatchee

I was asked by someone to take a photo of the Skookum Indian sign Located here in Wenatchee. Kinda wonder how long it will be around.

School photo Self Portrait.

Ahh yes, Photo days at school. I hated those days, having to wear nice clothes and having to comb my hair. Thank god I'm older now and don't have to deal with any hair combing or fancy-pants clothing. Anyway, yesterday's photoshoot inspired me to do the real thing and reproduce my old school photo. The only problem is that I'm a bit older and maybe a bit goofier.
