Personal Work – January 2012

January 25, 2012 |  by  |  Personal  |  Share

We hardly ever post any personal work here, but we’ve decided to change that this year.  To stay fresh, it’s really important that we make a point to set aside time to shoot stuff besides weddings and portraits.  It’s a good way to refresh our eyeballs, and sometimes we discover cool locations in the process that we can use later for client work.  Two weekends ago, we decided to take a drive, and I brought our lensbaby with us.  It’s been so mild so far this winter that I didn’t appreciate how cold it was this particular day.  I soon gave up trying to get sharp focus with the lensbaby, and just decided to have fun with it.  It was very freeing to just go out and play and not take the images so seriously.

The blur effect was all lensbaby and the color shifts were done by purposefully shifting the white balance in camera.

Andy took some interesting shots as well, but what he’s most obsessed with currently is his 365 iPhoneography project.  He’s posting an image on Instagram everyday that he’s captured (and edited) on his iPhone.  If you use Instagram and want to follow him, look up @andyschwartz.  Here are some of his recent images:
