I learned a wonderful technique on 1x.com written by a photographer named Pascal Muller. I have always wondered how to get those great shots of individual sugar or salt crystals pouring down against a black background, and this tutorial explained it perfectly. I tried Pascal's setup and easily achieved these three shots in a short amount of time. I'm really happy with them and having yet another studio lighting technique under my belt. Hope you enjoy them. Look for more to come in the following weeks! Best wishes, Cindy
Well, I've been extremely busy for the last month or so--I can't believe it's been so long since I've made a post, but summer is often like that. Make hay while the sun shines, and all that, right?
I'm excited to announce that Farnsworth: The magazine of the Farnsworth Art Museum chose my image: Alvaro's Hayrack Room Detail taken at Olson House last month for their Summer 2011 Magazine cover. This is one of my favorite images taken that day.
I felt very lucky to be able to spend so much time all by myself in the house, photographing each room. You can see all of the images on my website I suggest that you click the slideshow button on the top right hand corner to view the pictures in a really pleasant way and just sit back and relax.
We just spent a week in far Eastern Maine at Rideouts Lodge in Weston, Maine on Grand Lake with my mother and her Standard Poodle, Max. We had a great time, listening to the loons and Hermit and Swainson's Thrushes calling, fishing for Small Mouth Bass, canoeing, reading and swimming off the dock, which was right outside our cabin. It's a long drive from Portland at 4.5 hours (ulp!) but it was worth every second on the road. I took so many pictures that I can't wait to share, including a couple of new panoramas of Grand Lake at sunset. So, look for another post in the next week or so!
Hope you're all having a great summer! Best wishes, Cindy
