Web Site Updated!

Finally updated and got my website running! Check it out and let me know if you encounter any problems or have any comments/critiques.

New project

This is a cyanotype over platinum/palladium print made from a 8x10 negative. It's part of a new series I've started, called Outward Expansion, that takes a look at the construction going on around town.

I'm working on a new website for these images, so I'll post a link to it once I get it online.

Truth in Photography: It looks like we get along!

My dad took this photo of me and my sisters Amy (Left) and Emily while the "Marionettes" were all here for my graduation. Strangely enough this is pretty much the only one where someone isn't blocking someone else's light from the strobes. So this is going on the family wall. My dad doesn't understand lighting so much, but he had a really good time! (In our family we're called the Marionettes because my dad is named Marion, his brother's family are The Matterhorns because he's Matt.)

Figured I'd get the ball rolling again

Drove home to Idaho for a couple of days to see my puppies and the fam damily. On my way home I have to drove through the INL or Idaho National Laboratories. Its this thousands of acres government facility where they have nuclear materials. Its kind of shrouded in mystery what really goes on in it but they store and dispose of nuclear waste, kind of a big deal cause it sits above the aquifer for most of southern Idaho and its leaking. They also have a nuclear reactor of a submarine to train Navy personal in how to deal with problems and such. Every thing is spread out over hundreds of square miles in several separate facilities, but other than that I dont know what is up with it. I do know that if you stop for any reason, drive off the road or anything short of drive through, they send a couple of black SUVs out with armed guards to investigate. Nuclear materials = High security I guess. Anyways, some of the surrounding mountains. Second image is one of two lone mountains that stand in the facility. Im betting apocalypse bunkers. They always make their own weather which is cool. Been having trouble with the colors though. The color is off from what I had in PS even though I saved their profile as sRGB. Anyone have some suggestions?

God it feels good to not work on composites!!

Today a happy accident happened when I was unable to photograph Goodnight Sunrise in the studio. I improvised with the Alien Bees in the lobby of the VCB, and I'm pretty happy with the results. I have a lot more faith in those little lights now!

Monotone Gum

Gum over Cyanotype

Cyanotype over Platinum

I love the combination of the tones in this image.

Many Moons....

very sutle differences between them. You prefer?

Book rejects...

I really wanted these two images in my book for Ian's class but I just couldn't get them to fit so I figured I would just post them instead.

A couple more from my studio endeavor...

small town MT

A rundown side street of Miles City in the early morning. Influenced my project for senior next fall of older style, neglected motels.
These are beginning photos to a boat/water transportation project I'm starting. Taken throughout Italy.

Color Management coming to Blurb

According to the Photography Blog Exposure Compensation, Blurb will be introducing color management called B3 to resolve problems with inconsistent printing.

See the Exposure Compensation Post here. See Blurb's info page where you can sign-up to be notified when their service is publicly released.

Bozeman Homes

These are just a few of the images I made of some homes in Bozeman last summer, I am thinking about expanding on this project this summer, what do you guys think?

First image taken with my new 8x10

The placement of the ground glass/film holder seems a little off (hence the odd cropping at the top), but otherwise it works beautifully.
