I made a Book!!!!

And I am actually pretty proud of it. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to do one collection or one thousand so I decided on four. This book is now available as softcover or hardback on www.blurb.com. Here is the direct link:


Buy my book please!!! I promise you won't regret it.

So I seem to still be on this whole glow stick kick. For this weeks assignment we were allowed to shoot whatever we wanted or re-do a project. I wanted to re-do my painting with light and of course I wanted to play more with glow sticks. I also wanted to experiment with the human figure. I originally intended on just doing the male nude but after a few photos I decided I wanted to compare it with the female figure. And the only female I had was myself....good times. Hahah. This is my first time shooting myself completely nude and I kind of liked it. The result not the being nude part. Anywho, these photos are all 30 second exposures on my Nikon D5000 with a Aperture of F16. Enjoy!! And I would love a little feedback if you have some! The second image is actually two images I combined together in Photoshop then edited further in Lightroom 3.

Unexpected Light!

So this is an assignment that I intended on working out one way but it totally surprised me. I had never done long exposure or night photography before so I really wanted to mess around with night street photography. Alas, I was stuck on my couch all day Sunday due to sickness so I was forced to do my shoot at home. I had these glow sticks my mom got me for Halloween and have been wanting to mess around with them for a while. Surprisingly, I am in love with this project and might actually extend it. I have a new found love for long exposures and glow sticks!
All of these images are digitally shot with my Nikon D5000 with 5-15 second exposures.© Felicia Puff

Getting a Little Behind

Sorry it's been so long since I've updated. This semester is proving to be insanely busy and of course full of sickness for me. I've had a few projects for David Graham's class that I've actually liked a bit. This first one is "Evidence of my Existence"

All shot digitally with my Nikon D5000.

Yesterday we had our media arts field trip to NYC and I must say it was pretty amazing. Everyone split up but I had fun with everyone I ended up with. And a TON of fun singing on the 4 hour bus ride home. Aside from all of that I did take some photos with my Nikon D5000. All of the ones I chose to upload ended up being from the Met which is a pretty inspiring place. I was a little disappointed in their photo gallery but everything else made up for it. Hope you enjoy these!!!

Zombie Invasion!!!

So last night I had one of the most fun photo shoots I've done in a while. And it involved assorted meats and fake blood. For my digital course at school we were required to re-do a book cover of our choice. I have a very weird obsession with zombies so of course I chose The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks to re-make. The cover surprisingly has no blood so I wanted to spice it up a bit. Here is the picture I used for the front cover. See if you can guess what it is!

Street Photography

Is DEFINITELY not my specialty but I was happy with how some of my photos turned out. David Graham said that street shooting is starting to decline in our department so he wanted to get us out of our comfort zones and get us into people's faces. I mean, a lot of people don't have a problem photographing strangers...but I am not one of those people. I suppose it could grow on me though seeing how these turned out. These photos are all shot digitally...as I am still trying to master digital since it is my weak point. But it seems like I'm still seeing things in black and white since 3 out of 4 of these are black and white. I guess old habits are hard to change. Anywho, enjoy!!!

Recent Digital Work!!

Hey Yall!!! So I figured I'd get some work up that was actually part of a class this semester. This assignment was for David Graham's Junior Course and the concept was interrupted frame. This is the first real assignment I've chosen to do digitally and it surprisingly didn't turn out too bad. I shot these in my apartment with a black back drop and a single tungsten light. Enjoy!!

Oh. And we had this "cat challenge" we had to photograph as well. It's basically trying to take an overly photographed, almost cliche subject and making it more interesting. I actually hate cats, I'm much more of a dog person but I attempted to shoot something anyway. I ended up getting two creepy cat figurines from the thrift store and photographing them in my apartment with a black back drop and a small tungsten light. Here it is!!

Slacking on Updating

Sorry about that. I have been so busy with school work and traveling that I haven't updated in forever. I've been doing some interesting double exposure and portrait work for classes but I have yet to scan any of the negatives in so until I get around to that here are some random pictures I took at Potapsco Park in Elkridge Maryland.

Bikes, bikes, bikes!!

So I have yet to actually complete any of my photo projects yet so I figured I'd post some photos from a shoot I did tonight of a friend's bike. His name is Michael Englisis and he is a fellow student at the University of the Arts majoring in Film as well as a bike enthusiast. He basically completely restored this bike and let me just say it is pretty awesome. So here are some shots nothing too artsy as he wanted to show the classic details of the bike but I still liked a few of them. Enjoy!!

Photography Withdraw!!!! (Part 2)

The other post was getting a bit lengthy with the photos and it was a tad hard to manage so here's another post of some older photos. Once again enjoy and I hope everyone is enjoying their last bits of summer!!!

Photography Withdraw!!!!

So I officially started my Junior year this past Thursday but have yet to have an actual photography class. My days have been full of reading and Liberal Arts courses...and to be honest with you I'm going through a photography withdraw. I figured to spice up my blog a bit I'd add some of my older work. The dates of these photographs range from 2008 to 2010 so there is quite a variety but I figure they should suffice until I can get out there shooting again. Enjoy!

Internet Fail/Eastern State Penitentiary

So I've had a severe lack of internet for the last couple of weeks which explains my lack of posting. I've been so busy unpacking and getting the new apartment settled that it's been hard to get some real shooting in but yesterday I got the surprise opportunity to go to Eastern State Penitentiary.
Being a person who loves to focus on textures and architecture I was basically in heaven. I know it's not an original place to shoot but it was still truly inspiring. Hope you all enjoy!!!
