by Luke Nelson 9/16/2020 For several months I had been seeing what other photographers could do with a slow shutter speed, and I wanted to try my hand at it. Then, one day, as I was scrolling through WordPress, I found a page by a photographer who was journaling her learning experience, and one ofContinue reading “Ghosts”
Luke Nelson After seeing the “Vogue Challenge” circulate on social media, I wanted to try it out for myself. I did about a two hour-long photo session with my little brother, who did various actions like stand or lie down in the sprinklers, go on our trampoline, and play with the hose. I sorted throughContinue reading “The Magazine Collection”
Luke Nelson One night, a couple of months ago, I noticed that we had a full moon that was much larger than usual, so I switched out my usual camera lens for a much larger one. I stood up on a dining table on my back porch and zoomed in as far as I could,Continue reading “The Dark of the Moon”

I went outside, set my camera up on a tripod, and had my mom hold a line of Christmas lights and swing them in a circular motion. IContinue reading “The Bulb Collection”
In my photography class, my teacher asked us to take photos using window patterns created by sunlight leaking through, and I decided my subject was going to be a candle. But as I was completing the assignment, I started just taking photos of the candle for fun and got some really cool pictures. You mayContinue reading “The Candle Collection”
These two photos were taken at a gas station en route to Mammoth Mountain. The lighting outside was perfect, as it was at the time of day known as “blue hour” where lights make a beautiful contrast and mix with the dark blue sky.
This is a series of photos I took at a little diner near my house that had an interesting, vivid red coat. I wanted my subject to be wearing color that contrasted heavily with the red paint, so a yellow shirt was perfect. By coincidence, the yellow shirt also created a cool reflection off theContinue reading “The Red Collection”
