Architectural Style

I watched a Documentary today called "Visual Acoustics" about Julius Shulman and his work as an Architectural photographer. The film was excellently done and very motivating to watch. Anyone that knows or has seen the work of Julius Shulman can tell that the man was a creative genius with an eye for capture the story within each piece of architecture that he photographed.

I decided to take a little bit of time today, before a casting call I was needed at, to do some shooting of architecture and studying the lines and spaces of the areas around me. I tried to search for the best angles, where the leading lines would interesting and attention drawing.


I was able to shoot for about 25 minutes until a security guard became unhappy of my presence and decided that my practice time was done. However, it was just enough time to get a handful of good photos.

I'm going to be focusing on getting more architectural photo practice for awhile to expand my talents.

Thanks for stopping by!

Some friends of mine are getting married and very excitedly asked me to take their wedding invitation photos. I immediately said yes, figuring it would be fun to do something nice for my friends on their special occasion, but not thinking the photos would be of too much interest. I asked my friends what they were looking for, expecting the classic arm around each other happily smiling pose in front of a tree, picture that is so common of such photos. To my surprise and excitement I was told they were looking for something "artsy" that showed who they were as people and their connection in their relationship.

We ended up taking a day shooting around the downtown Denver area with some very fun results. It ended up being a great learning experience for myself as well to think creatively in showing the connection between the couple.At first they were a little nervous but soon became very comfortable and had a great time! Pair with great backgrounds and locations the day was a big success!



We had such a good time that if schedules permit we may have another shoot soon!
