Art. Photography. Life.

Marisol, a long time friend and mentor had asked me to take some photos of her New Genre & Site Specific class at Southwestern College. I took this class maybe 4 years ago, and I loved it. We went on trips to different museums here and up north and did lots of installations within SWC and out for the community, I had the best experience and I wanted to give the students a great experience with their photos. Full size Resolution photos are available on my Flickr, link on the right. Enjoy.

The Barbie: Details: Student: Jessic.a digitally manipulated onto or should I say into a photo of the box.

Jack Black: Details: Student: Andrew. His photo consists of 3 parts head/ torso, hand, and legs, all pieced together and superimposed on the wallpaper of the Pick of Destiny movie poster he requested.

Clockwork Orange: Details: Student: Kalen. She wanted to recreate the classic novel/movie cover. Simple edits and digital media for the ‘eye’ she longed for.

The Most Incredible Man In the World. Details: Student forgot his name. Great make up and character. Simple lighting, the rest was done in photoshop.

Ron Jeremy: Details: Student: Patrick. Simple lighting on a red drape one of the first photos I took that day.

Japanese Rebel Schooler: Details: Student: Andrew. Bare flash, shot low. Arranged manga style.

La Pieta: Details: Student Sabrina. Just wow. Completely covered in Slip (Clay/water) Freezing cold and heavy drapes. Great work. The pedestal was the deal breaker.

All the photos were shot with just one speedlite through shoot-thru umbrella by and edited by me

There were other impersonations, however; I was not able to shoot them all as there were other photogs (students? nubs?  i was trying to give them advice and they shruged me, they had like 3 alien bees all on 1/32 power with umbrellas facing the other direction, teacher whereabouts?) The other students who shot with them weren’t as pleased and wished they shot with me =D
