A Still Life Photograph

Posted in Huntington Beach, Personal, Photography by Bridget Casas on August 11, 2009


As I was loading my dishwasher earlier today, this vase with sitting on the counter with the beautiful rose buds I cut yesterday for my photograph. I love the vase they are in. It was given to me by a very dear friend many, many years ago. I thought the roses looked so I pretty, how could I not photograph them!? I took the vase outside on the patio, changed my lens and took a few photos. I wanted to make sure I got the flowers and the vase, but nothing too distracting in the background.  I didn’t do any retouching on the roses – just a little vignetting. Do you like it?



A 3 Rock Still Life

Posted in Photography, School by Bridget Casas on February 9, 2009

 The first assignment in my Tuesday night class is to photograph a still life with three items we can hold in one hand. The ones I took for class are done under different lighting and settings,  but I thought I would take one for my weblog. These rocks were given to me by Willie, Kyla and Donnan. They often come home with little presents for me when they go out on walks. I really like the colors, the markings and the “worm” holes.


A still life with three of my favorite rocks…

The sun is now finally out after some rain this morning! It is supposed to be clear tomorrow and then rain again on Wednesday. I think we are going to have to go up to Pasadena tomorrow morning to pick up the hard top for the MGB – only if it is not raining.  The dogs got loose out front this morning. It is such a hassle to get them in – they are very uncooperative and will not come in! Donnan will eventually come but you need a lot of strategy to get Kyla!  Willie just told me it is starting to rain again!
