An Alternative Week 5 Self Portrait

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

Not the same shoot as the actual week 5, but a very similar setup the next night. I usually don’t do outtakes, but I like this picture; I just don’t think I should wait until next week to post it. I should take a picture next week for next week’s photo.

Self 5/52

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

With a bow, the world shimmers.
An accident
A cover-up
A smirk
I return to the racquetball court today after several days away from the gym. The 365 Days of Gym project, apparently, can be derailed by the common cold, or the flu, and various other ailments. A few days back, I went and did the same workout I’d […]

Portrait 4/52 - Aimee

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

Studio setting this time, though a makeshift studio in the living room. White backdrop, lights, everything.
Except there was a bit of wrinkling in the backdrop, and in the end, it was not evenly lit (brighter up top), and therefore difficult to work with in Photoshop.
Still, I’m happy with the end result.

Taken the same day, within minutes of Week 3’s photo.
Same intent.
Same set of clothing (see last week’s entry for detail’s).
Entirely different lighting.
Sometimes the angle, whether it be the angle of the lens, the face, or the light–can make all the difference and change a picture entirely. In this case, whilst I believe Week 3 more […]

Playing with HDR today. Some success, some challenges, a few obstacles, and lessons learned.
Inspired by a series of portraits in GQ magazine. With that in mind:
leather jacket, Collezione; shirt, claiborne; tie, michael kors

Day 12 of 365 Days of Gym

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Today is Day 12, and I should be at the gym in approximately 10.5 hours, where I’ll do a full hour of cardio.
So far, everything’s going according to plan. I took 2 rest days in the first week, as planned: Tuesday (Day 3) and Saturday (Day 7). This, the second week, I took Tuesday (Day […]

Would you risk it all on the roll of the dice?

Self 2/52

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

Natural light. Approximately 5pm in Florida. After work.
We’ll call this a “before” shot, as it’s only Day 5 of 365 Days of Gym. Sticking with the program: Day 3 was my first (unplanned) day off, but I get two of those a week. An hour cardio on Day 5 (20 minutes on the bike, 40 […]
