Shot for studio.
This class scares the crap out of me.

For Digital Image Illustration 2 (my mind may be completely in jello form between this class and studio by the end of the quarter) we had to illustrate time with a photo composite image with at least three images.

I'm not thrilled with my results, but it's done (and 786 MB):

The longer I thought about time trying to decide what to do for this assignment the more I kept thinking that time is just something that somebody made up one day. That's how time came about--some very smart (or very cruel) person a long time ago said, "Hey, it's noon now." So I decided to illustrate a different way that time came to be in our world. If time exists on it's on, in its own world (nature perhaps?) then couldn't it have seeped into our world through some little secret door somewhere? That was my concept anyways.

In the interest of my blog's name I've got to put the bad, as well as the good, up here if I'm being fair about things. Especially when photography school is the main scope (also a mouthwash)--failure is an option. In fact, I'd say it's sometimes completely necsessary.

This is my lighting class final photo. Prepared food. Food photography is way more difficult than one might think, and even knowing it's difficult going into it I ended up with a beverage shot. Ugh. It's pretty clearly photoshoped into the kitchen, but I think my light matched alright (I have to say SOMETHING positive about the shot or I'll lose my mind).

I don't know the actual grade on this shot yet. In fact it's the only project from last quarter that hasn't been graded yet. I'm sure my instructor is somewhere (perhaps as we speak [or I type]) debating and/or laughing right now.
