Random Objects in a Dark Room

Random Objects in a Dark Room

I had a lighting mishap and one of the flowers lost a pedal... whoops!

There's a John Mayer song from about 10 years ago called "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room", (note: I haven't listened to the lyrics in detail, so I'm not sure if it's super inappropriate or not) and all morning as I took these photos I sang it to myself but with "random objects in a super dark room". 

"Things from the kitchen" This is a coincidental recreation of a photo my grandfather took 30+ years ago.

The weather has been pretty m'eh recently and we've spent much of the last two weeks cooped up. I realized I hadn't posted photos in weeks and hadn't really taken any to share either. I took portraits of my coworker's daughter, but felt it would be odd to post them here, even though she was super cute.

"Transition"

"Devil Bird"

So, in the absence of adventuring photos, I turned the downstairs bathroom into my personal studio for the morning (like I did last winter) and took photos of random objects. These actually have very little editing done to them.  I'll take a photo of the set up next time, but these involve a black backdrop, a flashlight, and long exposures. I click the shutter and then quickly point the flashlight at my object then turn it off.  My arms appear as weird ghosty streaks in some of the outtake photos.

"Mee mee mee mee mee mee mee mee mee mee mee mee meeeeeee mee mee" ( to the tune of "Ode to Joy")

I think these photos are proof that cabin fever is setting in and I'll make a point of doing something outside next weekend. :)
