Scholarship Winner #2

M__Kouznetsova-2400I’ve been working with Georgia State University’s art department for an ongoing project photographing student work.  This year, 2 students from the fiber arts department were nominated for sizable scholarships, so they were both sent to me to get the images they needed for their applications.

There were 2 possible scholarships they were competing for — and both of the students (who’s work I shot) won.

Congratulations to Masha Kouznetsova!

 

Here’s an example of her work:

Congratulations to Summer Gray!

Here is a corset she made — right down to making her own ribbon.

Aerial Shoot

Kawasaki_Newnan-DEP_2491This aerial shot is of the Kawasaki assembly plant in Newnan, GA.  The image’s final destination is as a wall sized print for the Kawasaki Heavy Industries corporate headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.

I rented a small, overhead wing plane to use as my shooting platform.  By choosing an airport fairly close to the destination I was able to save my client a fair amount of money because otherwise we would have had to fly around the international airport adding at least an hour to the trip in both directions.

Heavy Machinery

95z7_visiblity-v4-2This image is a view from inside the cab of a Kawasaki bucket loader.   Being greater than a  180 degree view, the shot is built out of multiple images, stitched together into a panorama.   Besides the 180 degree plus view from left to right, it’s also beyond a normal range of view from top to bottom, making it a panorama in 2 directions.  There are lots of simple panorama programs on the market — you can even make ones on your smart phone — but not ones like this.  Photoshop can’t even make this without hours of fine tuning and a lot of individual image manipulation.  It’s one of the most technically complicated things I do.

Michele Walsh Jewelry

Here’s a new piece I really like by Michele Walsh.  I shot 10 new works for her website and gallery submissions.

Sculpture Shoot with David Robinson

Shot 4 new works by David Robinson.  David’s sculptures are always fascinating to shoot — much more like portraits than products.  Looking at them feels somewhat voyeuristic because the faces of his characters are very melancholy, so seem like your catching them when they don’t know you’re there.  (They don’t know I’m there… right?!)   This was my second shoot with David, and he says that he has been very successful getting picked up by new galleries and accepted into juried shows using the recent images I’ve done for him.

New work by Susan Saul

Susan usually comes to the studio to have her work shot, but in this case Susan shipped the necklace to me on short notice.  A gallery was waiting on it for a show but Susan’s and my schedules were so complicated we couldn’t find a day where we were both available.  I shot the image as soon as I had an opening, then loaded it online for her approval.  As soon as I got the “thumbs up” the necklace was repackaged and back out the door.
