I've been taking a digital photography class at the Denver Darkroom for the last month. Tuesday was the last class, which included a photo shoot with a professional model. Naturally I got a lot of photos, some of which are not too bad for a first time out. Especially considering the lighting was limited and there were five other people trying to shoot at the same time.
All the photos are up here, including the goofy outtakes.

Every summer Denver has a chalk art festival. It's always amazing to see what those artists can do with chalk -- it's a far cry from what kids draw on the sidewalk!
As I was crouching down to take a shot of the art, I noticed this composition and snapped it almost immediately. I didn't even realize that the guy standing there happens to be a friend of mine! We hadn't planned to meet up or even talked recently, he just happened to walk into my frame and I took the picture thinking it was a complete stranger. It's a small city...

Last Saturday there was a mini-festival over at City Park, including a burlesque show (I think it was called the "Black & Blue Burlesque Show", but I can't find a link except one to MySpace, and I refuse to link there). Anyway, it was.. umm.. well worth watching :)
This isn't necessarily one of my favorite shots from that, but it did make it through post processing first, so I could use it for a class.

If you can't read the sign, it says "Designated Smoking Area."
This is intended as a commentary on the status of smokers recently. Particularly how they're increasingly pushed off into the dingy corners of society where they won't be in the way. Regardless of whether that's good or bad, that's the way it is. In keeping with that I went for a hyper-gritty urban feel with shot.
For the Denverites out there, this little corner is sandwiched between a couple buildings off of 17th & California.
