We did some foggy morning portraits for the duo.
I definitely want to give it another shot - while these are satisfactory (and they guys look sharp), I think we can do better!
My parents (semi)retired in Nampa. We took a winter trip to visit them, the Oregon Trail, Boise, and snow. Lots of locations that I'd love to use for a couple film ideas in the future. We tried to capture as much as we could but with me working & wanting to hang out with my parents, it was a bit limited. Perhaps shooting in summer? We'll see.
My Mom at the Oregon Trail south of Boise
Snow paw prints on the trail
The trail itself. The land experienced such heavy use on the route that the tracks are still visible today.
A dam just past Lucky Peak
The dam wheel, which seems like it still works.
I had this idea a few weeks ago. Going through old photos, I found one that was taken in the kitchen when soap bubbles were floating around. The trails left by the bubbles were very interesting... so I decided to try this on a large scale. I purchased "Gazillion bubbles" from Amazon and it fit the job perfectly.
Brendan and I set up shop in an empty parking garage and, with the help of garage lights and a hand-held blue LED, we created some really great stuff.
Tracers from the lights reflecting inside the bubble's membrane (this is a composite of 3 photos):
They almost look better in Black & White:
Some more landscapes - the first reminds me of a portal to another world, specifically a desert:
Some portraits by Brendan, wherein I pulled the bubbles between myself & the lens:
And finally, a photo by Brendan of the sunset treeline outside reflected in a bubble:
Opted out of New Years Eve celebrations to take part in Lake Chabot Brazen New Years half marathon. 5th in women and placed 2nd in age group despite the very... very painful hills. Great test of mental strength, can't wait for the next one. I know if I keep this up I can surpass my self-imposed limitations. 1:52:32 with massive hills, compared to last hilly half at 2:15 last year. Major improvement!!! Super proud of myself.
