Smoke Signals

ISO100 27mm f/4.5 1/200sec

It has arrived!!

As many of you probably seen on the Nick Exposed Facebook Page I recently received my new speedlite and radio triggers in the mail. I’ve been talking about getting some flash units to play with, and finally put in my order last week. Its probably a bit cliche to shoot some smoke photography right after getting a flash, but at the same time its sooo much fun 🙂  Read more…

Hangin Around

I owe this shot to my friend Kelly, if it weren’t for his scouting eye I would have walked past this scene, leaving it unnoticed, as I answered an incoming call during our photowalk today. Thats the beauty of enjoying the company of friends during the days photographic adventures, you always have a backup set of eyes 🙂 Thanks Man!

Quotography Inspiration

There is no trick to Quotography, but as I’m sure many of you can attest, there are some quotes that are easier to put into images than others. We have decided to tell you a little bit about our process in the hopes that you, our fellow collaborators, can get something out of it! Remember, our way of doing it is not “the right” way to go about it…it’s just a discussion to get your wheels turning and the creativity flowing.

The best way to do this, I think, will be with some examples.

“In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away” – Shing Xiong

Shannon’s Thoughts:

The first thing I do with most quotes is look for the obvious, tangible items in it. In this case, I could try to do something with breath…maybe frosty breath on a cold morning…something along those lines. However, I don’t think that would really illustrate the message Shing Xiong is trying to convey. Instead, I would focus on the ‘moments’ portion of the quote.

‘Moments’ could be something with clocks or watches. Maybe a clock involved in an image of something I value. A watch on a couple holding hands or kissing?

However, to me, this quote is special enough that I would want to do better than a first obvious thought. If this were my quote, I would be inclined to do a photo involving other photos of special moments. Maybe a photo of polaroids spread out on a table? Or a photo of a scrapbook. Photos are my favorite way to remember important moments, so it would be an ideal way to both illustrate the quote while still communicating my personal values.

Feelin Groovy

ISO100 23mm f/9.0 1/80sec

Another unusual vehicle to add to my collection of auto images! This mini bus has been painted and repainted so many times throughout my life span. Its owned by a auto collision repair center just down the street from where I grew up, and every few years they give it a fresh coat of paint in hopes of luring newcomers through their door. This is the most extravagant paint job that I recall it having in all the times I have seen it, and probably the most suiting coat for the vehicle.

Short. Simple. To the point 🙂
