Photography of Roy Thoman

On the hunt for new photographs

I needed to go to Melbourne Fl. the other day, so I took the opportunity to hunt for some cool architectural abstracts to add to my portfolio. I found several that I like a lot. I’m not sure if they will be right for my portfolio though. I will need to get the opinion of the class. I was not there at quite the right time of day. I didn’t have the light and shadows that I have been looking for. The sun kept going behind a cloud. I need a cloudless sky to get the crisp dark shadows that I’m looking for. So here are the photos that I created on my trip to Melbourne. What do you think?

    • Thank you Elizabeth! I was pretty sure that most if any of those were going to fit into my portfolio. They were just the photos that I had taken that week. I have one or two that I have taken since that I hope will fit into my portfolio, also a few that won’t again. Oh well it’s still early. We will see how they fit next week. Your plants are really nice! I’ve always wanted to shoot some fiddle ferns Just as they are opening up they make this really cool curl. I think they would fit in nicely with what you’re doing.
