October has been a month of change, obstacles, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes
Now that Halloween’s over it’s time to get festive and I’m sure you’re already hearing Christmas music on the radio. It’s a time of year I’ve always loved but I don’t feel like I’m quite ready for it this year, maybe it’s because it’s the first week of November and people are already putting up Christmas trees.
I’m at the point where I’m sooo ~over~ this semester – I’m sure we all can agree on that one. Where is Christmas break??
However, looking back at these pictures reminds me of the fun I had through this stressful and busy month.

The four at the top are diffused lighting photos. The equal light makes it to where you don’t have any shadows in the photos, it was a really cloudy day. Just perfection.
One of my favorite photos to take are the long exposures. They’re so easy and always turn out super interesting! It’s so weird I look like a ghost in them.
The silhouette was super challenging because since it’s been getting so dark lately I had to shoot in the morning when the light wasn’t exactly the way I needed it to be. I rigged up the photo with the mug by putting a lamp in a windowsill and putting a sheet over it. Whatever works, right?
I’ve definitely learned a good bit on how to angle things and change setting to manipulate the image I’m looking for. For example, The Smiths album is a pan photo; it’s obvious I waited until the last minute to complete that assignment BUT I learned how to properly take that shot.
And then of course we have the pumpkin photo and Max holding a candle. We had a neighborhood pumpkin carving night it was great. And of course I’m #blessed Max is always down to model for me!
The McDonald’s photos are…different, right? I’m representing McDonald’s as being a health risk but I couldn’t decide if the vegetable or cigarette photo portrayed my message the most. I’ve thought about it a lot and I think the cigarette really puts my point across. It’s a work in progress.
Good things are happening! Stay tuned.
