The Painter   By: Eric Michalski

This is a portrait of my friend and classmate Cassidy that I took for an assignment at OSU-IT in Okmulgee, Oklahoma.
One day we were cleaning out the old lockers in the photography department and I found this awesome face mask used for developing film back in the day (these lockers hadn’t been opened for at least eight years lol.) Once I saw this mask I knew I had to use it in a photo somehow. Then I got the idea to try and find an automotive paint gun and use it with the mask. So, my friend Seth let me borrow his paint gun.
I wanted to give the illusion that Cassidy was actually laying down some paint in a paint booth. So I got a ton of those little packets of powdered creamer for coffee and had my buddy Michael blow the creamer behind Cassidy, and it turned out better than I could of imagined. I am really happy with the photo I got just out of finding an old air filtering mask. I’d love to hear what you think of it.

Here is another Panorama that I took, it is the view from my new dorm room at OSU-IT in Okmulgee, OK. One day I noticed that the clouds were looking amazingly awesome so I knew it would be a good sunset to do a panorama of. I couldn’t of imagined how beautiful it actually looked untill it was time. I love all the colors in the sky, and I really like how those colors are reflected in the wet pavement, the windows, and other places in the photo.
I hope you all like it, and I’d love to hear what you think of it.

This is a Portrait Panorama of my friend Lendzee that I shot for an assignment at OSU-IT. The assignment was to take a panorama photo with a portrait in it. So I came up with the Idea to use lights in a line in the background and I really like the effect it gave to the photo. One of the requirements for this assignment was to put it together by hand and I decided to not blend it together because I really liked the look it gave to the photo.
I hope you all like it, Let me know what you think!

Hey Everybody, This is one of my recent Product shots that I did at OSU-IT. Our assignment was just an open ended still-life for Studio class so I decided to try another alcohol advertisment shot. I thought of the idea of sticking a screwdriver into an orange to illustrate the drink named a ‘Screwdriver.’ Since I knew I wanted to use oranges, I figured I would go for complimentary colors and do blue and orange. So I got the bottle of Skyy because it was a nice shade of blue, and I searched through my tool boxes looking for my blue handled screwdriver.
I hope you all enjoy the photo! I certinely enjoyed taking it. I’d love to hear all your comments!

This is a Portrait of my friend Cassidy at OSU-IT. We had an assignment to take a portrait of a fellow classmate that shows part of their personality. Cassidy is really passionate about music so I wanted to display him rockin out. I really like the contrast of the lighting.
Let me Know what you guys think!

Here is a Portrait of my friend Summer that I took for my portrait photography class at OSU-IT.
We were learning more about lighting patterns and combining different accent lights. I really like the lighting in this and I got a very nice and natural smile from Summer.

Here is a Photo i took recently for my Studio II class.
I really enjoy this lemonade so I thought i would use it in this still-life. I wanted to exaggerate the fact that its blue raspberry lemonade by painting some blue food coloring on the lemons that I cut up. This was a fun photo to experiment with, not to mention that the tear-down of the setup for the shot was very refreshing since i finally got to drink the lemonade.

Hey Everybody! Here is my latest assingment photo for my Studio 1 Class at Osu-it. We had to do a splash shot, so i decieded to throw on of my Nissan emblems in a large bowl of water and it turned out better than I imagined. I love how the splash makes the shape of the emblem.
This Photo is basically a Self-Portrait without me actually in it. My favorite color is green, and my race car is a ‘93 Nissan 240sx. I hope you guys enjoy this photo. Let me know what you think!
