I finally got some decent photos taken of the recent chair that I made. I thought that I would post a couple of shots here. The photos where taken by one of my instructors who I am trying to talk into teaching a photo class to us.

WOW. I love first two photos.. great contrast between your chair and the background. And the grain is just stunning. Keep up great work, Kaleo!

Is the back scalloped? That’s a beautiful piece! I like the third picture, too! LOL

thank you all, not yes that back is scalloped and the seat was shaped as well. That was the most fun part about this project was the shaping.

the chair is beautiful and, yes, the photo really adds to the beauty—the lighting is wonderful and then the contrast with the background in the first pix (that’s what caught my attention right off).

Magnificent chair.

cool chair. It looks like a shorter version of the bar chair you showed awhile back. Is that correct?

How much more time do you have in school?

Learning photographer will be a big help to you.

They ought to have that as part of their curriculum, as well as marketing, accounting, tax laws, industrial management, resource acquisition, employee law, and….......but then what would you have to worry about learning when you get of school??

always a fan,

Thanks Marc and everyone for the nice comments. I have about 6 months left here in school, after that I haven’t figured out yet, I might have an opprotunity to teach here at tht school for a year. But most likely it will be back home in the states somewhere.

The university offers some photography course just nothing that I wanted to take. SO this semster I took a web design class, so that I could make my own site. The address that it is at the moment is a friends server. So when I buy a domain name I’ll switch it over.

Take a look and let me know what you all think. I’ll post it also in the blog section.
