10.11.2017: Flash!

I never thought shooting Quinn would lead to such a great friendship between us. I love her guys, shes just the best. We just sat there, on the grass infront of maywood, and then laying down just looking at the stars [its as amazing as it sounds, trust me].

But i messaged her yesterday, with literally one question: hey! wanna shoot tonight?”

Here are our results:

Tonight, the stars came out to greet me.

And I finally figured out how to say hi.

My first ever photographs of the night sky, taken by just messing around with my camera settings.

Dont worry, I plan on getting better.

Honestly, I can confidently say Quinn Mitchell (@quinnmitchell1 on insta) makes for one of the best friends ive had in a super long time. She is an incredible human being who has one of the best ranges of facial expressions that I have ever caught on camera.

I wanted to show who I think Quinn really is, and here she is:

Guys, today has been an absolutley amazing day filled with a giant mental rollercoaster from mediocre to simply absolutley phenomenal.

Took some photographs from my vantage point in Goddard Library in the afternoon, and edited them to make them look real filmy, and honestly, just now I caught one of the most stunning sunsets on top of the parking garage. I saw it from goddard asked a friend to watch my stuff and sprinted to catch an absolutley surreal moment.

I couldnt even believe myself (and am currently destroying my keyboard as I am typing this post), and was screaming internally out of joy the entire time the sun looked like an impressionist painting, with the clouds being like broad brush strokes, making the world glow in reds and blues.

I dont know, it just feels good to be alive.

Saturday, September 16 : Hadwen

So, you could say that Im a bit all over the place when it comes to photography. I tend to photograph almost anything, from people to landscapes to street.

And you are not wrong.

However, I do consider myself to be is a documentary as well as portrait photographer, considering photography for me is a way to document everyday moments in full detail and context.

In terms of technique however, because I am self taught, Ive come to not like flash photography due to the way it makes the subject look washed out. But, I have been getting over my unjustified hate and been experimenting on people using flash. Yesterday, I walked to the Hadwen Arboretum to test out flash on natural subjects, and here are my results:

Sunday, September 17

Whoo, been a long time since I posted last — its been nuts — back in college, and officially doing studio art (concentrated in photography) as a minor. Its been rough, with everything speeding through so quickly it seems like a blur.

But definetly going to get into a habit of posting more often, and posting of my progress in my artwork as well as how I do it.

Getting back to today, it  was such a good day. Caught the fog at 7am on top of the parking garage and then later in the day,  did some experiments with light exposures outside while sitting on my blanket, which im super happy with.
