Photos of the Week: Faces in Places

October 20, 2010 · Posted in art, photography, photos, photos of the week, projects · Comment 

We went to a Latino Festival in Roanoke, which was filled with Colombians. The food was great, the people were interesting and the displays were very beautiful. We met a mother from Colombia whose little girl dress in the traditional dress from Antioquia, the state that Ana is from. Then two Colombian girls danced a traditional dance from the coast area of the country.

The next two photos are of ours and a friend’s dog on our recent hike to McAfee Knob.

Our photo challenge was “Summer.” Luckily I was in Jersey with a pool so I got some easy shots.

Here’s Sam’s submission.

Photos of the Week – Black and White

June 29, 2010 · Posted in art, photography, photos, photos of the week, projects · Comment 

With the advances in digital photography and the cost of high quality cameras so low, everyone has become a photographer. However, few realize what it’s like to shoot  with film and fewer still, to shoot with actual black and white film.

The development process was the best part because you didn’t get to see your photos until you hung up your role of film on the drying line. Often times, you’d forget you even took some of your shots and be pleasantly surprised. There was no looking at your LCD screen after every shot, there was no deleting bad pics so that you could shoot more on your already full memory card. Different films yielded different colors, grain and style, which can now be duplicated in a computer, but it’ll never be the same. This week’s photo challenge was an attempt to force everyone to think about shooting for a purpose rather than for an edit in Photoshop later.

Photos of the Week – After Hours

June 1, 2010 · Posted in art, photography, photos, photos of the week, projects · Comment 

Sam and I started a photo project. It’s pretty simple: a theme and a set of photos (3-5) taken that week. This week’s theme was “After Hours.”

I always take photos, but rarely do I have time to post them. Since I have peer pressure now, it pushes me to go out, take some more photos with some thought behind it and finally post them.

Here’s Sam’s After Hours post.
