Ideas for the Summer - A Reminder to Myself

I have been looking at many different styles of photography lately and I am getting more into portraits that I have been in the past. I think it was sparked by the series of self-portraits that I did over the summer, but now I really want to get more involved with others as well. One specific style of portrait photography I would love to get into is Underwater Portraits." It is very unique and there is almost no way to get the same shot more than once. Now the title of this post might make sense, I will have to wait for the summer time in order to try this out.

The biggest problem in doing this is the cost of one of a water housing. They start at $1,200 and that might not even be one you can trust! I guess it is something to think about over the next six months as I enjoy the lack of colors that is a winter in Houston, Texas.

Day 306 - The Clock Tower

Just went on a photo shoot in downtown Houston in the Market District to capture this clock tower. This is a HDR panoramic shot of the tower, just below the base. I haven't got a chance to take many HDRs, let alone a panoramic, lately so I thought this would be a fun time to do it. I think it turned out pretty cool!

Hi (Poster)

I don't know where it came from, but I have suddenly had the urge to start doing poster designs. I know, its really random, but it seems like fun. I want to try to knock one out every week if I can and just try to accomplish a few different things.

This poster is something I thought up while driving back from Austin this last weekend. I actually pulled over and drew out the letters h and i together like they are in the poster, just so I would not forget. Typography is something that I started to get really interested in the last year and I have been meaning to do more with it. For this poster I wanted it to look almost like a giant pixelated graphic and I think I was able to accomplish that. That is probably thanks to the hours of Minecraft I have been playing.

Overall, I just wanted to produce a nice, clean typographic poster that might make people take a second look at because they don't necessarily know what it is the first time. What do you think?

Day 293 - Haunter!

I am so far behind right now it isn't even funny! I have been so busy finishing up school and trying to get things settled for afterwards that this has kinda taken the back seat. I am going to try my hardest to catch up in the next week and hopefully I can do so. So until next time here is my pumpkin from Halloween. Its Haunter! It is one of the original 151 Pokemon from way back in the day.
