Sunny Wispy Dream

I've had this idea for a photo shoot for a long time. Actually it what a
different idea, but that's ok. I had a very good time with taking the photos
and being the model. And, a dress that I have been working on for a long
time is finally finished. Win, win. However I might still go and photograph
the original idea for this dress. Hmmm....

Last Summer....

These photographs are from a summer course I took last summer from
Columbia College in Chicago. It was a 8 week course on photography,
ending with a final project. This photographic story line was my final
project of the summer. The final project was up to you to think of and
photograph, photoshop (if need be) then present to the class for
critique. Mine was the only "story" and I had to edit it down a lot from
it's original 13 photographs. I had a very interesting time photographing
all the scenes from a story board I had made up with only myself a
tripod and a remote time. (oh my!). I went to GoodWill to pick up an old
dress, took the photos, then tweaked the photos slightly with photoshop
to get the look I wanted. Hope you all like the story.

P.S. They were originally tiffs then I had to resize them online
(I don't have photoshop) so the color of the photos themselves are a bit off.

On the Front

So. I have recently been thinking on what this experimental blog should
roughly be about. I have come to the conclusion that I can not set my
mind to exactly what it might hold. The only thing I came up with is
photographs. (And, a great many other things that I can not seem to recall.)

This blog will be to record all the photo shoots that I take, make and
think of, also all the "items" that I make for the shoots. Mainly costumes.
This blog also may dabble in some fashion ideas.

There it is the rough plan.
