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.

  • Umbrellas
  • 5 in 1 reflector

close up of black and white droplets

So here's another totally unoriginal idea I always thought was cool, so I thought I would give it a whirl. In between some of the shots my cat came and helped out by drinking some of the milk. Thanks Tator.

Closeup of an eye

If I want to see what something looks like close up a lot of times I will grab my macro lens and take a couple snaps. It's amazing to see details that you normally don't or can't see with the naked eye.

Record player and records triptych

I have a special place in my heart for records. They sound more real to me. I even like the little scratchy sounds every once in a while. It feels cozy for some reason... And it is also very fun to dig through all the records at places like Goodwill. Usually you'll find one good record out of 500 or so. But it is so awesome when you do and it will only cost you a buck or two.

Two Unsuspecting GI-Joes with a Teddy bear monster behind

Forget Bigfoot... I've seen this monster out in the woods and this is my proof. Soon I'm sure I'll will be invited onto all the daytime talk shows and become rich and famous. You just wait and see.

BLT with avocado and home-made focaccia bread

For dinner tonight we had a BLT with avocado and home-made focaccia bread. Along with the lighting in the room I only used one flash with a defuser above and to the right of the camera.

Pine tree with water droplets

I used my 100mm macro for this shot to get a close up and placed a flash 4 inches under the pine. I like the abstract look of it.

Origami Animals in plant

What started out as a simple idea with no special lighting turned into a three flash job with a reflector and beauty dish. Though I never regret busting out the lights.
