CRAFTING CINEMATIC PEACES

WEDDING - COMMERCIAL - DOCUMENTARY

REFLECTOR


THESE IMAGES WERE TAKEN IN A REGULAR ROOM, IN FACT, INSIDE THE SAME CLASS ROOM AS OUR 4603 CLASS. I SET UP MY LIGHT TO AN INTENSITY THAT WOULD DROP EVERYTHING TO BLACK OTHER THAN MY TALENT AND USED A REFLECTOR TO ADD EXTRA LIGHTING INTO THE EDGES I WANTED. IN THE SECOND PHOTO, I UTILIZED THE REFLECTOR TO HIT OFF A CLOUD OF MIST THAT WAS SET OFF INTO THE AIR MOMENTS BEFORE I SNAPPED THE SHOT. 

LIGHT PAINTING


LIGHT PAINTING IS AN ART OF LIMITLESS POSSIBILITIES AND BECAUSE OF THIS I REALLY STRUGGLED IN SOLIDIFYING A VISION FOR WHAT I WANTED TO SHOOT. THIS WAS MY MAKE UP ASSIGNMENT AND WAS TAKEN OUT ON THE EDGE OF MIDTOWN. I USED A STRONG XENON LIGHT TO LOCK IN MY TALENT, WHILE THE GENERAL LIGHTS OF THE BACKGROUND WERE PAINTED IN BY MOVING CARS AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL ELEMENTS. 

SPORTRAIT


HAVING RAN AND SERVED AS THE CAPTAIN OF MY TRACK AND FIELD TEAM IN HIGH SCHOOL, THIS SHOOT HAD ME IN A COMFORTABLE ENVIRONMENT AND I ALREADY CAME IN KNOWING CERTAIN SHOTS I KNEW LOOKED GOOD, AS I KNEW WHAT IT WAS LIKE BEING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LENS IN THIS CASE. DARSHAY DAVIS IS A TRACK AND FIELD RUNNER FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA TRACK AND FIELD TEAM AND WAS A FANTASTIC TALENT TO SPEND THE HOUR WITH, AS I CAPTURED HER GETTING IN THE ZONE AND SHOWING OFF HER COMPETITIVE INTENSITY. 

FOOD


THIS VERY MUCH MAY HAVE BEEN MY FAVORITE SHOOT OF THIS CLASS, AND NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF ALL THE FREE FOOD I WAS GIVEN. THE GELATO COMPANY IS EMPLOYED WITH SOME OF THE VERY BEST OF PEOPLE AND THEY WERE SO HELPFUL AND WELCOMING IN LETTING ME PHOTOGRAPH THEIR FOOD THAT THE CHEFS TRULY VALUED, THEMSELVES, AS ART. I FELT IN MY ELEMENT IN THAT MOM-AND-POP RESTAURANT AND WALKED OUT WITH A FEW GREAT IMAGES AND GREAT FRIENDS. 

ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAIT


FEATURED IN THIS IMAGE IS JOHNNY JONES, A TALENTED MUSICIAN FROM FORT LAUDERDALE, WHO HAS BEEN PLAYING GUITAR AND SINGING FROM A VERY YOUNG AGE. HE HAS AN ALBUM ON ITUNES AND HAS PERFORMED FOR NUMEROUS AUDIENCES, INCLUDING MANY OF THE CRU EVENTS HERE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. ADDITIONALLY, HE IS ALSO MY ROOMMATE AND, THUS, OUR LIVING ROOM BECAME HIS NATURAL ENVIRONMENT FOR HIS WRITING, PRACTICING AND STRUMMING. 

MODEL SESSION


GIVEN TEN MINUTES OF SHOOTING WITH ASHLEY CRANE, I ATTEMPTED TO CREATED IMAGES THAT PORTRAYED THE HOPEFULNESS, AND INTENSITY OF OUR MODEL. I TAPPED UP MY FRAME RATE TO TRIGGER A CONTRASTY AND DARKER IMAGE, SOMETHING, I FEEL GIVES THE IMAGE A GRITTIER FEELING, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT CAN BE GRAINED IN POST. 

BIG DREAMS

OFTEN IT IS THE CASE, THAT THE BIGGER WE DREAM, THE SMALLER WE FEEL. THESE IMAGES ARE DEDICATED TO ALL THOSE DARING TO TAKE ON A BIGGER WORLD, A HARDER AND HARSHER CHALLENGE THAN MOST.
