The look on the cat's face is just brilliant. :) Ps I found this shop via 'our picks for Tonke'. Doesn't Etsy know exactly what I like?

About

Images of Tiny Things Captured Outside the Box

(This story is about my mini photo series, not my Disney designs)

In my second photography class, the professor gave us the incredibly vague assignment of just "nature." This was the stage in my learning where I was sick of seeing macro photos of flowers and barn wood, so I was determined to find a loop hole, a way to take this nature shot without actually using nature. I happened to remember seeing these teeny tiny deer figurines in Hobby Lobby, so I bought them. I don't remember what inspired me exactly, but I came up with using a half melted Popsicle as a pond and thus created Popsicle Pond. I think my love of alliteration and sugar was the main inspiration!

The response that I got from the professor was great. He loved that I thought outside the box, and he encouraged me to do more, so in my spare time I came up with about 8 more images, and during an art retreat I showed them to the entire department. People ate them up! (Pun intended, of course). I was overwhelmed and thrilled that I had produced something that my peers enjoyed and praised. In my head I was thinking "Kristi, you did it! You got noticed! You did something worthwhile!" This was huge for me, especially as an art student. This was when I finally realized I could actually be a successful artist without being able to paint or draw or sculpt.

My most recent images have been executed with much more technical skill than the early work, but I am still quite fond of those quirky early images (Lollipop Forest & Hungry Policemen especially). They have all been shot on one of three cameras:
Canon Rebel XT
Nikon D200 (my weird Nikon phase)
Canon 5D Mark II

Lighting on my images vary, but lately I like to use my two Alien Bees when I can. I've also used window light, which I love. It mostly just depends on the scene and what works better!

I don't really have a method of developing ideas, but I love to work off of phrases or funny stereotypes. I'll think of something as I'm falling asleep or when I'm in the shower, and I'll just jot it down. If I come back later and it still sounds good, I'll try to develop it into something great! Several of my ideas have come from Etsy customers wanting a specific item used, and I LOVE doing those. It's like making up your own recipe out of ingredients that someone gives you.

This part of my photography journey is over, but I still look back on it fondly.
