From Fall to Frozen.

It seems like I spent the last few Months waiting for the Autumn colors to peak and as soon as fall foliage hit it’s stride the ice came… It was wonderful while it lasted, but way to short. When I look outside the colors are still available but the brilliance we had a couple weeks ago is far more muted. I put together a quick video as part of a snap challenge in my cohort for the Arcanum, a new education based photo community I’ve joined. It’s designed around the master/apprentice  learning scenario. One mentor leads a group of 20 apprentices as we work on challenges and progress to higher levels. From my perspective the whole thing is about having a good community to help push you forward with your skills by keeping you active in challenges that produce new work. I’m currently a level 7 apprentice in Mason Marsh’s cohort… at each level you have a new activity to complete before you can move up to your next challenge. Every 4 or 5 challenges there is a critique of your recent work. It’s a great opportunity to get fresh eyes on your work and see other peoples perspectives.

Below is a sample of some of the work I’ve been doing since joining the Arcanum:

Shadows in the Garden / A new image shot for an assignment. I was working on framing and evaluating the different tones in an image to try and control the viewer focus.

No 2 Folding Autographic Brownie / I re-edited this image after getting feedback and a critique session. The final image is much higher quality then the previous version utilizing new techniques to create a more natural look but still maintain it’s character.
