Crown Graphic

It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything and I’ve missed the creative flow.  I’m now 8 weeks into my new job as a high school photography teacher and free time is quite rare.  Things are going very well and I enjoy the job but it comes at the price of 12 hour work days because I have to plan and prepare the curriculum a day at a time.

Along with my classroom I inherited some cool vintage equipment that the previous photography teacher left behind.  I’ve always been fascinated by machinery and mechanical things so naturally I wanted to photograph this piece since I first saw it.  This was taken on one of the student cameras, a Canon Rebel XT in full manual mode.  I used a single light box (which you can see reflected in the lens) as the only light source.  I’m pleased with the result, I hope you enjoy it too!
