In class lately we've been learning about product photography. I've been really surprised with how much I enjoy the time I spend each week in the dark of the studio, just me, and the object I'm shooting. It reminds me of the therapeutic feeling I would get spending hours and hours in the black and white darkroom at NSCAD.
Each assignment has a requirement, one being to shoot a transparent object (i chose lightbulbs) another a shiny object (steel wine glasses) and then exploitation. Our teacher Dave wanted us to choose an object that would exploit the tactile and visual properties of the object of our choice.
I made a heart out of steel wool, and then stuck nails in it. I wanted it to look itchy and dark (if that makes any sense) and I'm really happy with the resulting image. Enjoy!

This right here is my first time bloggin'. It feels foreign to me, but I'm sure that with time, the posts will just flow out of me.
To start things off, I thought it would be fitting to post the last photo I took, along with my first ever blog.
This photo was for an assignment for class. The only requirement was that it be of a transparent object. I knew I wanted to shoot broken glass, and here is what I came up with!
