Light & Color Photography

Similar and not the same

Similar. But, Not the Same

I loved creating this image.

There is something simple and innocent about the subject. It’s uncomplicated. A few rows of circles that appear to be in harmony with one another.

I like the absence of complexity. At first it seems to just be the same thing repeated.  And, that is what the image is.

With a little observation each sphere becomes more interesting. Each sphere has it’s own personality. Each sphere has a slightly different swirl, color, or highlight.

I find it interesting how each sphere interacts with the background. The background is slightly enlarged, flipped up-side-down, and made spherical (I love the magic of glass).

NEW EQUIPMENT – Round Lights

Yes, I got to play with my new round lights.

With the round light I was able to create circle highlights around each sphere. Encapsulating the essential features.
That effect just isn’t possible with a regular light kit.

I Was Sphere! 

Be sure click on the image to enlarge.

There are so many little worlds to explore.
Working the deep blue that appears on some of the spheres really adds to how different each sphere each.

Story: Rule of Thirds

ASSIGNMENT: The rule of thirds is the first compositional rule most photographers learn, but most don’t know why they learn it. The rule of thirds is fantastic for telling a story. Tell a story using the rule of thirds.
PHOTO: The beginning of the year has begun with thick mountain fogs. Most of the animals are staying close to the house. The Rooster got my attention – then his buddies showed up.

PHOTOGRAPHY Hand Study

PHOTOGRAPHY Hand Study

Photography by Gary Crossey - Hand Study
The photography hand study was created using a scanner. The hand was positioned in the scanner and held still while capturing. During the process, the model had to hold her hand completely still. The process created a visual tension that I was after. I experimented with a similar process using a camera and sheet of glass – None of the pressure appeared when the hand was held for a few seconds as it did when held for a few minutes. The effect of the glass against the fingertips really reinforces that sense of pressure and force pushing down.  To the effect to almost remove the imprint of the fingerprint.

Checker

I am building a theme in the simple to follow naming of this collection of photography. With Checkered Floor, I photographed a public building in the center of Belfast. As a child, I stood outside this building a million times. Embarking on a bus to any direction of Belfast.
As an adult, I entered the building and discover Checkered Floors. After talking with my family and friends – none of them had ever gone inside the building. But, in their mind, they all had an idea of what they expected to see. It was not checkered floors. I then made “Checker” with fragments of different photos – each representing might think of the ground when they know it is just a checkered floor.
