I took some pictures of this pretty spot. It's by a ski lodge near where I'm staying. In the winter, this is a tube slope. Haha it's awesome!! It was just a gorgeous day so I wanted to capture that.
I did a version of these images sometime while I was a student. I didn't really like them, and didn't even use them for the assignment they were for. So, for my final portfolio, I chose to re-do these. They are some of my favorite 'trys' and I wanted to actually do what I wanted with them. All in all, I got the effects I wanted: The smoke is very organic and abstract. The water is clearer with a darker background to increase contrast and has much more movement while still keeping the water balloon shape. My straws are glowing even though I shot them in a fairly bright area. Minimal PS work done to all of them. Mostly slight contrast and saturation changes with a little sharpening. I did help the background on the straws so it went black, and I removed the needle used to pop the balloon.

This one is quite fun and exciting, and definitely more related to what I'm interested in for a career. That in itself makes it a very interesting internship. I'm working with Good Samaritan Hospital - part of the Bon Secours Health System. Not exactly as an O.R. photographer and videographer (my bosses haven't even seen that since they've started working with the hospital), but in the marketing department. I'm getting lots of opportunities so far: shooting different events and dinners, designing posters and other publications, physician portraiture, and in a week or two I'll be in the O.R. shooting the staff at work. I'm really excited, as these first 2 1/2 weeks have been busy busy.
