I was honored to have a photo of mine accepted again this year into the Momentum Art Show put on by OVAC. Here’s just a little glimpse at the awesome spectacle that is Momentum.
Here’s my piece hanging on the gallery wall titled “Hitchcock Dreams”. It was purchased within the first couple hours of the weekend-long show!
Momentum artists have the awesome opportunity to include works under $30 in the Momentum Market. Of course, I included my Foliage accessories, which did quite well! The exposure to such a targeted market was great. You can find out more about Foliage accessories in this Facebook album.
For the last couple years, Momentum has been held at the OKC Farmer’s Market. It’s a beautiful building that is probably most well-known for it’s eye-catching number of white, paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling. It has a great balcony for overlooking the room, from which I snagged this pano shot:

I received my first vintage camera as a birthday present from my good friends Caleb & Melissa (who’s wedding I get to shoot this weekend)! It also happened to be around the time that our front yard’s Bradford Pear was in bloom. It only lasts for about a week, so what else did I do but take pictures of the camera with it, of course! Here’s a few artsy shots for you to enjoy! They may just end up in an art show down the road….

Finally getting my third and last WPPI post up! On our last day in Vegas we visited an area called El Dorado Canyon in Nelson, NV.
On the way to our intended location, we decided to pull off the road and get some fashion-style shots in the pure desert scene. Although the Vegas landscape doesn’t vary much, it was a refreshing difference from Oklahoma, and we had so much fun shooting in the dry sand, with a backdrop of mountains.
It was still pretty early in the day, so we did what we could with the lighting! It wasn’t ideal, but the “harsh desert sun” look really added to the concept in a way.
Who doesn’t love a good proportion illusion?
The next set of pictures are actually in El Dorado Canyon. Their property is littered with cool vintage objects, old cars, a few barns, and even a wrecked airplane. This location has been used in parts of big productions such as 3000 Miles to Graceland, and has also been used as a shooting location for big name musicians and fashion photographers.
We found a gutted bus that we could have easily shot in for hours! The entire inside was painted white, creating an amazing, natural reflector. Behind the scenes shot of Catie Bartlett:
The photo of me on the left was taken by Catie:
These last couple of Catie were taken by the place crash scene.
As I mentioned before, we definitely plan on returning to WPPI 2013- hopefully you can see why!
