Nature Trust Project Wrap Up

Well, I'm not sure I talked about it much, but I was working on a project with NBCCD and the Nature Trust of New Brunswick. The idea was to visit the various Nature Trust preserves and create a piece of art based on your experience there. It was open to any NBCCD student in the 2012 year, I graduated in 2012, but qualified as the project started before that point. So after a couple of field trips I was ready with what I thought was a nice array of work. I did both standard shots and pinhole shots. I went with the pinhole and decided to apply some interesting surface to it with acrylic paint and gels. Unfortunately my pieces did not make the cut, but I would like to present them here for your viewing.

I won't be revealing my other pinhole works just yet, as some will be in my show this November. But I would like to present my straight photography from this project for your viewing pleasure. 

I hope you enjoy these sights and please make sure to visit The New Brunswick Museum in Saint John to see the selected pieces from the other students.

Some Older Work Forgotten

In all my blog posts last year I never got around to talking about my small gear related project. I had some leftover watch gears from my Steampunk project and had done some macro shots for a logo of them. The logo never passed but I liked the shots and wanted to do something with them. I had acquired a large box of old frames as well. So after some Photoshop work on the gear pictures and painting the frames I created a small series of images I may do more of someday. Here for your viewing is the Gear Project.

That's all for this post!
