Indie Art Photoblog: May 2007

Tuesday, May 29, 2007

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day! My husband is out of town & my little guy came down with a bug, so I spent the weekend home taking care of him. My sweet brother took Big D. to the lake with him yesterday, and I spent naptime placing orders and listening to this - if you haven't heard it before, you're gonna love it! (all of their albums are really good - go check it out.)

Travis - "Closer"

Friday, May 25, 2007


Well, i wish i could tell you he did it himself, but.....
STAGE 1: "Before" - He's ALWAYS had long, curly hair - ALWAYS! and i LOVE[D] it, sniff, sniff. Now it's gone =( {he insists he's "Spiderman", so that's what we'll call him - and little brother says his name is "Batman" - and if you ever ask them what they're doing, they'll tell you very seriously, "Saving the wuwd [world]", lol}
STAGE 2: He's been needing a trim. i've always trimmed his hair myself, and it's always looked okay, but i didn't do such a great job this time, and everyone said his haircut looked like a girl - you be the judge.

STAGE 3: And this is the current state of his hair. Daddy decided to "fix" mommy's hack job before she woke up. And apparantly, "Spiderman"'s haircuts have reverse Samson-Effect, because look how incredibley strong it made him! (and yes, there will be a stage 4 - it still needs fixing.)

1. on the rocks, 2. Untitled, 3. ornery, 4. cj9.jpg, 5. Some rise above, 6. Untitled, 7. Untitled, 8. Pink, 9. Hospital Pics..., 10. super diva, 11. more green, 12. IMG_7832, 13. Walkway5501, 14. Untitled, 15. lake, 16. Untitled

I just love making these collages of some of my favorite work from other photographers. It's always so fascinating to me to see the "themes" that arise - i'm seeing more green this time. Check my April archives to see the last one - seems it could be appropriately entitled "April Showers".

As you can see, "S" and I had too much fun at her Senior photoshoot Saturday. I can't get over her AMAZING eyes, and no, I did NOT mess with them in Photoshop - can you believe that?! SO gorgeous! This is my first time to talk a Senior into doing their session at this location, and I hope, S., that you love these!
WOOHOO! See the difference between these 2 color versions?!?!?! I think i FINALLY figured out how to reflect the real color - thanks to all of you who helped me!

I've known this one for a LONG, LONG time - so long, it makes me realize how OLD i am! If she looks familiar, it's because I have taken her pics before, but her grandma wanted some of her gorgeous naturally curly hair, and in our first shoot it was straight --- what can i say, we do anything for Grandmas!

Also, she agreed to let me videotape this shoot, so I will be sharing a little footage soon - cool, eh?!? (that is, as soon as i can figure it out - i've never put video online - is it hard?)

(grey again=grrrrrr - the color's dull again -- in real life, she isn't grey, she's tan =)

As you can see, I tried a new uploading method where I use a photohost rather than posting directly through blogger in an attempt to remedy my color problem, but they still look slightly dull and more grey than they do in photoshop - they're just WAY bigger this way =) oh well.

So anywho, here's a few of "K" to share. She is THE coolest person! I just had a great time taking her pics, and isn't she so beautiful! [I know Mr. "R" thinks so, wink, wink]

I had the funnest time with the amazing dancer, "M". What a sweetheart and the best personality! She just had some jaw surgery and smiled for me over a hundred times even though her mouth was numb like after getting shots at the dentist - [like i said, what a sport!] And I LOVE, LOVE this first one - even though the color is little off when i post it here, i think you can tell how gorgeous it is:

this location is so unique - lots more to come of this place!

introducing my new favorite windows i found on the side of an auto repair building:

stunning, eh?

[and i am just so frustrated because, i don't know about you, but i'm seeing a definite blue colorcast on all of these that is NOT there in photoshop...and it's not a sRGB thing, i don't know what it is! Just know, M., that your pics' color is GORGEOUS!]
