Yea! I just received and email that one of my aerial projects was just featured on photographyserved.com and will appear on its front page today.
Check it out if you have time – it was my first time photographing from a helicopter without doors and, even though I’m terrified of flying, it was truly an incredible experience that I would highly recommend to everyone!

I thought it might be time to share a few more photographs from my personal project – “Passenger Seat”.And yes, the motion blur in these images was captured in-camera.
Happy Friday, fall is finally here. : )

I’ve finally made some time over the past few evenings to take a closer look at some of the images that I took in Shanghai. I’m sure that it drives some people crazy that I don’t post my images immediately, but it’s been my experience that over time some of the images that I initially really like, just don’t stand the test of time. Hopefully these will.
You can see more on my Behance site if you’d like.
And, yes, I am having an excellent time exploring with my tilt-shift lens. : )

A few days at home in California.

After reviewing the photographs that I’ve taken over the past few weeks, it looks like I’ve been feeling a bit blue. Perhaps confined as well.

I was lucky enough to take an extra day while teaching a class at the Santa Fe Workshops and sneak some quick pics near Ghost Ranch. New Mexico has such stunning landscapes.

I thought that I would post a selection of images that I’ve taken over the past few months.
But it seems to me, that even if you place seemingly random images together, they create their own relationships and meanings…

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted photos so here are a few that I wanted to share from Central California.

I am always a bit disconcerted by the visuals and atmosphere of Las Vegas.
It seems to draw loneliness like magnets do metal.

I enjoy creating series of images which, when shown next to each other, create their own, unique relationships between frames. The first photos were taken walking across a bridge from Kentucky to Ohio, the second were in Chicago and the third were approaching SFO.

I’m excited to be returning to the fabulous Santa Fe Workshops this year to teach a 4 day workshop on Photoshop and The Creative Composite!
Somewhere between the decisive moment of still photography and the time compression offered by moving pictures lies the world of digital compositing—a place where multiple images captured at different times are layered together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. During our four days together, Julieanne helps you discover how to transform concepts and ideas into images. You master the tools used in compositing, including layers and masking, blend modes, adjustment layers, the properties panel, opacity, and clipping paths. Then you take these concepts to the next level using Smart Objects and Smart Filters, making complex selections using channels and the pen tool, and creating knockout layer effects using advanced blending options, clipping masks, Layer Groups, and the Refine Edge command.
Mornings are dedicated to instruction, with time set aside in the afternoon for you to work on your own images. This is the chance for you to reinforce your understanding of techniques applicable to your photography and engage in individual critique sessions. Using the most flexible, non-destructive editing process imaginable, Julieanne combines creative inspiration with image-manipulation techniques to help you rediscover your enthusiasm and unleash your potential.
I hope you will be able to join us! Click here for more information about the class, and to view the entire Santa Fe Workshops calendar, click here.

While traveling in Mexico, I was overwhelmed with the incredible color palette of the region. So, when the group of (ridiculously talented) photographers that I was traveling with were given the challenge to submit an image to “best represent Cabo San Lucas and the surrounding region”, I decided that I’d better do something really different if I had any chance of winning the contest! Instead of realistically representing the location, I focused on the colors, movement and spirit of the people – creating a blanket of the “Colors of Mexico”.
If you have time and want to check out the other submissions, click here and vote for the image that you like the most. Certainly I don’t expect to win – although I do think “Colors of Mexico” would look fantastic printed 12 feet wide behind the registration counter)! : )
