Such a simple assignment. Sometimes simplicity is key, yes? The assignment was simply to photograph a fruit or vegetable. I chose to shoot a pomegranate for one reason; I LOVE to eat them. And what’s better than a photography assignment you can eat?? However, as I got into the shoot I began to fully appreciate the beauty of the pom. It’s many glossy seeds make great subjects and I did everything in my power to make the focus of this shoot 100% about the pomegranate.
I recently had the opportunity to take a trip to the lovely capitol of Wisconsin; Madison. My photography class spent an entire day at the Chazen Museum of Art and strolling around downtown photographing the whole experience. The first thing that struck me about Madison was that there was so much going on! There was a plethora of colors, sounds, and textures everywhere we turned, and I was happy to capture even some of it! The museum was gorgeous and full of absolutely wonderful pieces. The tour guides very friendly and very accommodating. I highly recommend it if you’re ever in the area!

My latest album was inspired by my family’s move from the city to the country earlier this year. A very welcome and peaceful change, by father went so far as to dub the experience ‘from the ghetto to the meadow’. Driving around our new home I’ve seen some incredible homes, barns, animals, and landscapes, and this album is my chance to share it with the rest of the world.
Hello everyone! Welcome to ShutterBug Gallery; photography by Corrie Riedl. (That’s me!) A photographer by the name of Matt Hardy once said “Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.” This ‘art of seeing’ is what I focus on in all my photographs. Taking something you may see everyday and looking at it in a brand new light or taking the time to appreciate and capture the beauty in life that all too often is overlooked; this is what my photography is about.
