Featured Photographs from Project 52: Part Two


We are really having a blast with Project 52 – “52 weeks to go pro” and I need to share a few of the images from a few weeks projects.

If you aren’t participating, you should be. Whether or not you go pro, or want to, it is a mind-sharpening, skill enhancing opportunity to become involved, motivated and engaged in the art of commercial photography.

Last week’s assignment was “Hot” and this week it is a product shot with a bit of a twist. Oh, and there is a layout to shoot to as well.

Some news to share. This afternoon the galleys for my book came in. Typeset, with images in position and everything. I have only every self-published so I am very excited. A big thanks to Amherst Media for giving me a chance to do the book. I understand they go on pre-order at Amazon in August.

BTW, a big shout out to the art department there. Nice job, folks. Nice indeed.

I hope you all like the new layout. I trimmed up the sidebar to have it be way smaller and less obtrusive. I need to make it clear that there are so many more posts here than the first one. Check the Archives out… hundreds of posts.

Now – let’s take a look at some excellent shots from the Project 52 participants.

From the Assignment “Let’s Pour a Beer”:
