Catching Up On 40

I’ve had blog issues lately and have fallen behind on the posting. Figured I better take a minute to post the last couple and bring everyone up to speed. Week 6 was an image I titled “Blue Moves” A little on the crazy side, but fun to create. I had to break out the tux for an auction at my kids’ school and figured it would be the perfect outfit for a 40 portrait. I had a completely different concept originally, but came up with this one halfway through the shoot. The original image came out ok, but I liked this one better. You’ll have to wait til the end of the project to see the other one! Week 7 was a little tougher…. I’m in Montana right now, speaking at their state photography convention. The bad part of this is that I don’t have access to a studio and there were snow flurries yesterday – so outdoors isn’t really an option either. That left me with the hotel itself… which can be limiting. When I got back to the hotel room last night, I decided to try and setup a shot in my room. I went for a high

Trapped!!!

Week 5:  “Trapped!!!” Whew – week five was a tough one.  I started out with a completely different concept.  Planned it out, photographed it, worked it up in Photoshop… and hated it.  It just wasn’t good enough.  I felt like I was mailing it in.  During the course of working on it, however, another idea popped into my head – then it was back to the drawing board for Week Five Take Two…. Many of us feel like we are trapped in front of our computers all day, so I took the next logical step and became trapped INSIDE my computer.  It took a while to figure out just how to shoot it – but I think it was worth the extra effort.   I hope you like it!

Self Portrait in D

Week 3:  “Self Portrait in D” Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve started teaching Beau how to play piano.  Although I’m hopelessly out of practice, it has been fun getting back to something that was such a big part of my high school and college years.  It seemed like the perfect subject for one of the 4040 images. I hope you like it!

4040 Project Update

Well the 40@Forty Project is off to a great start – however, we’ve run into one minor glitch… The images are all being posted on Facebook – to keep this blog from being too clogged with images of me, however it seems a lot of people don’t have Facebook – or don’t want it – so they are missing out.  To make things simpler, I’m going to start posting the images on the blog – as well as on FB – so everyone will have a couple of different ways to keep up.  As long as I’m churning out the self-portraits, I want to make sure people get to see them! So for all you non-Facebookers… here is a summary of what has happened so far: First off, if you are unfamiliar with the project, you can read about it here:  http://www.lourceyphoto.com/4040project.html Week 1: Since I switched to Mac a couple of months ago, it has taken up a great deal of my time – getting everything converted.  Therefore, I thought it fitting to start week one with an image that paid tribute to my new relationship with Mac. Now for week 2, I decided to go in an entirely
