the things we learn

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on February 2, 2008

One thing learned today: we romanticize our childhoods.

train

I spent the day walking around to old childhood hangouts. It was really depressing to the state of things now, where college students have ripped to shreds parks, creeks, and my old back yard. The photo above was taken from the train tracks my friends and I used to play on. I only remember seeing one train in all the time we spent there, so it was neat to see one today.

home

The above picture is from where I spent hours upon hours of time when I was little. The plants and bushes and trees that used to grow there have been chopped down and replaced by gravel, beer cans and mud.

Paw prints were the only signs of life today.

The light in the hotel was fantastic for a few portraits.

The view from the bride’s bedroom was stunning. I took two versions of this photo, one with the background in focus and one with her silhouette in focus. I like this one better.

This photo is an almost, I think. It’s too dark. I wanted to capture the hands and the feet in the black, but I think it needs a touch more light. Perhaps toning could help.

This was my first attempt to use flash. It took a bit to get used to.

This was a fun idea. We took the bride to a bar, and yelled for everyone to toast to her. I’m disappointed that this came out so dark, but I think toning might help.

These shots were my idea. When we came out after the wedding, I saw a firetruck and an ambulance right across the street, lights flashing. I grabbed Christina and we threw Nick and Casey between them.

And then, of course, there is the cake.
