I had my first taste of shooting dance again since I got my new job at the Red Cross and left Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company. Kingsbury Hall brought Momix to Salt Lake City the end of January. In conjunction with their public performances, they also had a free performance set at the Salt Lake City library. It is a fun venue to shoot in because it is so contemporary and it allows people to watch the performance from the balcony's, from the elevators, from the stairs, and all around. For performing in such a small space, Momix did an incredible job! Here are a few of the shots I was able to get.
This past semester I took a digital imaging class which was wonderful! It focused on PhotoShop and developing artwork throughout the semester. I wanted to share some of my pieces. These first two images were for my final project. They were designed for my African themed guest bedroom.
This image was for a self-portrait assignment. I explored my different signs in Western and Eastern Astrology where I am a Gemini (air) and an Ox (fire).
This next image is a blending of ideas from Buddhism and Christianity.
This final image I wanted to share was a re-design of a movie poster for "Ghost World."

Here is a closer look at my adventures in photography as I go off on my next shoot or I experiment with new techniques I am learning. I hope you can learn from some of the things I am doing and perhaps you can share some opinions and insight on my photographic work.
