With fall and summer coming to a close now felt like the right time to celebrate the farmers market.
This is a round up of favorite farmers market photos taken this summer & fall. Most of these were taken on overcast days when the light was perfect.
"The shoemaker's children go barefoot" is a phrase meaning that one often neglects those closest to oneself.
I'm guilty of this, I took these pictures back in June but haven't had time to edit them until now.
So without further ado I'm sharing these photos from a car show I took this summer in Weston, Mo.
This week I'll be showcasing my recent keepsake jewelry product shoot.
I recently had the opportunity to do an atypical product shoot, when Shawna from Birdie and the Bear reached out to me. She was needing new photos for her website and Instagram.
Keepsake jewelry is so interesting I was really excited to photograph her work.
Shawna suggested photographing the set for the website on macarons and I loved the idea.
Some of her pieces preserve breastmilk from new moms and shells from beach trips.
Come take a look at these amazing pieces I got to work with.
The first set is for the web and the set on the weathered wood prop is for social media.
Last week I (with a lot of help from my hubby) crafted a weathered wood prop for a breastmilk jewelry photoshoot.
I used a few craft blogs for inspiration but my Dear Hubby and I ended up modifying the designs with (in my opinion) good results.
This last weekend I attended the showing of Pressing On: The Letterpress Film at the Interrobang Film festival.
Pressing On: The Letterpress Film trailer
Here is the description of the film, directed by Erin Beckloff & Andrew Quinnat from the Interrobang website:
"The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived? Worlds of each character emerge as unusual narratives—joyful, mournful, reflective and visionary—are punctuated with on-screen visual candy, every shot meticulously composed. Captivating personalities blend with wood, metal and type as young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector in us all."
As I do every year I'm reflecting on photos I entered into the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon.
The Photography Salon is a juried competition which draws entries from all over the United States and the World.
This year I'm entering four photos in the categories:
I'll get a card in the mail at the end of July with the results.
Wish me luck!
