Dead Flowers & Bumble Bees.



A chilly autumn day in Ohio with friends.
I forgot about the sunflower fields this year.
We were too late.
:(
But I still got some good shots.
Yippee!

I love my friends.

How we prizint.

It is true. :)

I'll be selling 8"x10" prints of my work for $15 each. (Shipping included.)
There are only certain photos from flickr/facebook that I'll be able to print. Just email me and let me know what you'd like.

Go to a thrift store.
Antique store.
Vintage store.
Buy a new frame.
Get excited about it.
Get stupid. (Click that trash.)
And then buy a print. ;)
AND THEN!
Take a photo and show me what you do with it.
I think it's neat.

Someday I want to have a wall of just crazy frames and photos that I love from other photographers. :) Vintage, crazy frames. And I want the wall they are on to be teal. Mmmm... teal. And I want a sweet black sofa under them.

Someday.

Or give a print as a present. Girls dig that artsy stuff.
So do artsy guys. Sometimes.
Not all the time.
It might be awkward.
I don't know.
::LULL::

Your frizend,
Jess

Here we begin.

I've thought about doing a photography blog for a while. I think I'm just always afraid that it's more work than I have time for. But we'll give it a shot.

I recently flew to Seattle to shoot my old roommate's wedding. I was so happy that I could be a part of their big moment. Andi and David have been really great friends of mine for the past year.

It was a terribly bright Seattle Sunday. I was very worried because of how intense the sun was that day. I pictured squinty eyes and ridiculously bright photos. I'm a natural light photographer, so indoor photography isn't really my thing. I much prefer to use the sun to light my photos. I feel that the photo ends up a lot softer this way than with strobes. And I've never used reflectors. I just kinda do what I do and understand that I'm gonna have to deal with it in post processing.

But in the end, things were amazing. Except for that rude photographer that I met at Gas Works Park as David and Andi were about to see eachother for the first time. Note to Self: Never shoot photos at Gas Works Park on a weekend ever again. :)

I also had 3 other shoots while I was in town. PRODUCTIVE!
All in all, it was a really great trip.
Starbucks, thai food, photos and lots of love in the air. :)

Here are some photos from the trip:

The Rowlands.

And lastly, a before/after. I'm always curious. Maybe you are too. Post processing is a very big part of my work. When I take a photo, I already have the photo composed and finished in my mind. I have a very good idea of what I am going to do with the photo once I've taken it.

Before/After

The end. :)
