Asylum Shoot Outtakes

I shot a ton of photos for this shoot, inside my dog's kennel. I edited a lot of them, but have tried to only upload my favorites to Flickr. There are still more that may end up there eventually. I was honestly surprised that this series wasn't more popular, because I love it. I had this idea of shooting in my dog's kennel for a long time now (years). Originally, I had been contemplating the 7 Deadly Sins project and thought this theme might be good for "wrath". I've worked out another theme for the 7 Deadly Sins though, and so this shoot was allowed to stand on it's own.

I shot these 2 images with the intention of cloning them together, but after the fact I didn't think this clone shot had the same impact as many of the single shots. I still like it, but I wish I'd framed it more "straight on". I moved my camera midway during the shoot and these were from the first set up. I think if I'd have shot them from the second set up I'd like the result a little better.


Another one that I wish I'd shot from the second (more straight on) set up. Struggled with this one because the sun was much brighter down by the end where my face was, and couldn't seem to get the color tones to work as I wanted them to, but still like it.

A close runner up for the shot titled Asylum on my Flickr account... I like the blur of the open mouth, but the rest of my face I don't care for. In Asylum, I like that the blur is less extreme, and my eye contact still manages to come through it.


Lastly, this is a close up shot from the same day. I shot this outside along with Whiteout.



I've decided to start a blog where I can post various photos that will not make it all the way to Flickr. I plan on showing some before/afters and possibly some editing techniques, along with outtakes from shoots, and photos of things/people other than myself. I may also occasionally post a snapshot or 2 of random events in my life, and wouldn't be at all surprised if I ended up ranting or rambling here from time to time.

I expect this to be rather disorganized, because I will probably be posting older photos as well as new ones, and can't guarantee that they will be in any particular order or with any rhyme or reason.

Look here to see what you won't see on Flickr, and to possibly learn a bit more about me when my tendencies to babble on overtake me. (As they are beginning to do now!)
