Icing From Hell

Assignment #6 for Project 52 is to shoot something that SCREAMS CHOCOLATE! The only way I know how to get that nice chocolatey gloss is to make what my mother, sister, and I call “The Icing From Hell.” 3 seconds too short on the ice, you get icing that...

Imaginary Images Turn Real

The photographs I have in my mind make it into my camera every so often. Sometimes I feel bad for my children since they are often the ones standing around when I need subjects. On the other hand, I like to think they’ll be glad to have these someday. The task I...

Project 52 Week 5: Severe Weather

Project 52 Week 5: Severe Weather Weather has played a significant role in demographic shifts – whether from colder climes to warmer, or in the impact of bad weather on the economy. A major online magazine has given you this assignment. A single lead story image...

Ed Bartlett

Project 52’s assignment this week is to photograph an entrepreneur. Well, Ed Bartlett is about as entrepreneur as you can get. Within a very short time, he has taken his Shoreline Out and About website and built it so that it is now Connecticut Out and About. Ed...

Project 52, Assignment #3: Shoot a Stranger

The scene is the lobby of the Yale-New Haven Hospital’s Temple Radiology Center in West Haven, CT just moments prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Grand Opening. I say to Irene while busting through all the doors, camera in hand, “Hey! Check it...

Mirepoix

Okay, so, Irene is participating in Project 52, and I am mostly only vicariously living through her and not committing… just yet. Routine deadlines make me want to fall to the ground in a faint and let every last drop of blood drain out of my body. Meanwhile, I...

Neopets By Candlelight

I love these toys so much that I took them out of my kids stuff that they were going to get rid of and kept them for myself. Here are only three out of the seven or so that I have. I wish I knew what the conversation was about!

Revised vision statement

In addition to posting an image for each Project 52 assignment, there’s a live critique hosted by the Project’s founder, Don Giannatti, on VOKLE. Last night I watched the first one. The Assignment was: {What’s your Vision Statement as a photographer,...

A Freak Shot

Poupie says, “Hey! The sky looks really cool out there!” I say, “Oh! Yeah! It does….. Oh! I want to get a picture of it!………. Oh! I better go now or it will be gone….” Sound of coat going on… sound of scooping...

Project 52 Begins!!

My vision for 2012 is to create stunning portraits and imagery – mainly to serve as an outlet for self-expression and fun; to document the visual journey of my life and experiences; and to share my images with others. I strive to capture beautiful light to convey a...

Inside the Softbox #1

I’ve been telling Irene Liebler for two weeks now that I just want to get INSIDE of a giant soft box and take pictures. Well, I’m not inside of one yet, but I simulated half of one with half of the light with my lovely and helpful daughters Rachel and...

Sour Cream Dinner Rolls

I made the mistake of listening to the Twit Photo episode where Penny De La Soto discusses food photography while I was making these rolls today for Thanksgiving dinner at John and Irene Liebler’s. It caused everything to come to a screeching halt while I got...
