Architecture

 This small set is all about architecture; both physical and mental.

The Federal Building in Jackson is the first government building to be named after an African American. Dr. A.H. McCoy was a prominent dentist and business leader.

With a 30 second exposure, I tried to represent da Vinci's Virtruvian Man. The human architecture. I also used a pen light to show my spine.
The Madison County Courthouse and square were prominently featured in the 1996 movie A Time to Kill, adapted from the John Grisham novel.

Experimental Photography

This short series of photographs is all about experimentation.

The Countess
 For this image I did not white balance. I wanted it to be a natural as possible without using a camera from 1910. In photo shop I lowered the vibrancy,  raised the saturation, and gave it an egg shell white (off white/yellow) hue.

 Drip Drop
 Taken at an outdoor water fountain, this photo was an experiment in light and movement. It was captured at my highest shutter speed. In photo shop I raised the saturation, raised the vibrancy, and increased the reds.

Street lights
Taken in the historical Canton MS Square, this photo was originally the iconic roof lights and traffic lights of Canton. It now depicts an ever moving world of fantastic fluorescent creatures. 

Kit Leonard is an experimental photographer in France exploring topics like age, self, and the human form. http://kitleonard.blogspot.com/
