I Need To Clean My Mirrors

They are so dirty that my white backgrounds look awful!

It is my goal this week to fix that (or at least unpack my two Duaflex's that are already squeaky clean!

Perfect Summer TTV Photograph

I don't like summer. I loathe the sun and warm weather makes me cranky and depressed. So for me summer is just no fun. I think that is why all of my summer photos are a little off and dark. Here is a pretty good example of how my mind views summer.

I can't wait for the fall...

He-Man : Skeletor and Battle Cat

Well, I went digging around in the garage and was able to rescue Battle Cat (Adam/He-Man's Tiger) as well as Skeletor. 
These are only the initial images as I wanted to photograph them right away but I am not 100% happy with the final outcome (the lighting was strange today and I felt rushed when I was shooting...)
Either way here are more additions to 'The Toy Project'

I am really excited to continue this project- it have given me a new view and a renewed sense of inspiration! I hope everyone else is as inspired as I am right now.

My Little Pony

Yes- That's right! 
Since my move I have been finding amazing treasures that I NEVER would have expected to find ever again. I am currently working on a book consisting of TTV Photographs of childhood toys. I think these are the perfect starting point for this project and these are just the two ponies that I brought into the house so far...

I still have the unicorns, flutter ponies and the male ponies to go through. I am really excited and can't wait! Not to mention I have TONS and TONS of vintage Star Wars, He-Man and She-Ra toys to go through. I can really feel the creativity and inspiration coming. If there are any suggestions on other childhood toys form the 1980's please let me know.

UPDATE: After my mom saw these images she exclaimed how she was glad that I went to art school for my degree just go later go on and photograph My Little Ponies....gee- thanks Mom!

After The Move

I finally made the transition between living on my own to moving back in with my parents (at least m brother still lives here too!) and it has been quite tough to feel inspired or get creative without the entire space at my disposal.

Either way I am trying to force myself out of this rut. These are the images I am working on...if nothing they make me smile and are really gorgeous and simple.
