Building Blues… according to my family and friends in Boise, this building has been under construction for over a year. It’s an interesting structure right now. Covered in plastic with multi-color lighting inside. This assignment was definitely fun but battling the weather and clouds was not. I’m going to do some more photography like this as the buildings in Boise play with light well. Large glass panels and l.e.d. lighting make fantastic subjects, just like this one.
Being asked to photograph Elizabeth Smart and the Surviving Voices event was a life-changer. It was a challenge with little light and fast moving performers but I sucked it up, learned, and did it. It’s hard to take pictures and listen to the stories being told at the same time but I would definitely do it again.
Not my first trip to Craters of the Moon National Park in Idaho, but my first successful trip to capture the Milky Way. I started that journey on a small outlet in Arbon, Idaho where I first cracked the secrets of Milky Way photography the day before my classes’ trip to Craters. If you ever get a chance to see the Milky Way with your own eyes, definitely take it.
