So Little Time

I am currently having the best kind of problem. I have too many photographs to blog! I've been shooting rather steadily and I just keep pumping out images that I quite like. So fast, in fact, that I have been unable to blog them all. So are three single images that represent full photo-stories. There is one of a massive amount of photos featuring the children I babysat over March Break (the example being of my niece Kendra), the second is one of my series of close up duck pictures from feeding the ducks at the Fork of The Thames last week, and, and finally one of a short series I made on the walk home from my girlfriends house the other night (all gritty, wasteland-esque architectural shots). So here they are, little pieces of a photographers busy life.

I made a new stop-motion video! This video is comprised of 452 images, played for 0.2 seconds each, giving the illusion of video to still images. This is my second stop-motion video, both using children's toys. The reason I use toys is because they can stay perfectly still, and all it takes is a tiny push to move them into their next position. The biggest difference between this video and the last one is that I used a few new techniques (for disposing of the bad guys). So watch, enjoy, and tell me what you think with a comment.

Mostly Just Fun

There is something significantly different about this here post. I'll give you a hint; I'm not typing this on a computer. I purchased an iPod Touch yesterday and was not surprised to find that Blogspot has it's own app! So this post, and the two accompanying photos were all made on an iPod. Although it is fun, don't think this means I'll be using my camera any less. It just means I might also use a few iPod photos every once in a while. After all, photography (and especially photojournalism) is more about content and composition than purely quality. Archipelago Photography- islands of thought and image, connected with a name.
