i love collections. so for the first part of my photography project, i am documenting collections.
the harry ransom center has the most gorgeous windows ever, frosted with all sorts of historical goodness. one of the librarians there has a lovely collection of plastic toys on her desk, so I got permission to photograph them. however, I used film so those will appear later. (random: the building in the back is the French department! Yay!)
the windows are especially nice in the early morning, when you get beautiful shadows.
i am starting to build my collection of food props. we'll start with ikea, because it's cheap and i'm not really ready to invest in stuff from crate and barrel or williams sonoma. it is amazing how refreshing it is to have a new plate and placemat for food photography as well as for eating. but now i realize what i really want is a matte black plate.
a friend led me to a new friend with lots of books who also has an amazing collection of rubiks cubes.
i shot a lot in film, but i felt i needed to have color photos for some of them because the colors were too pretty!
