So I have not mastered photography by ANY means, but as a full time educator, I always like to challenge myself and learn more. These photos can be thought of as "sketches" or "studies," meaning that I was practicing and having fun. What is more fun than having some champagne with friends and then taking photos at 1am? Well I enlisted Cassie (she's my resident model!) and Jimi for these shots and I think they're pretty fun!
We made these by shooting at night using a long exposure in the camera. The light is from sparklers (well, Roman Candles, really) and the effects are both eerie and awesome! What do you think?!
