*before the actual post, I do want to say that im going to be off social media for a couple of months (I havent finalized a date yet) just like last semester to focus and push myself academically as well as to narrow down my photography style (even more so than last semester).
But as usual, this blog will be in full effect, so feel free to tune in 😉
Finally got on the adobe train and subscribed to the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite on new years eve. And I have to say, this is a move that I think is going to enhance my photography, and is an extremely valuable learning experience for me as an artist and creative person.
So, as usual, I shot a couple of photographs of my family as well as my friends who came over for New Years and edited these photographs on lightroom using the VSCO film presets that I purchased.
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:
More portrait photography, this time featuring Bao Kim (@baozergram on insta), a sophomore and good friend of mine. Ive been working on a self organized project titled Oscuro, where I do mini photoshoots of people combined with natural shadows that occur during Golden Hour (equates to roughly 2pm to 5pm, when the suns rays are at its harshest, and right before sundown) in and around campus.
Ive been shooting people since the beginning of the semester (im going to post those in the next post), and so far, so good.
Todays shoot was near a fence, messing with the diamond shaped shadows.
This year, Ive been making a point to photograph more people around campus. I started asking people whether they would be willing to model for me, while I shoot them in various locations around campus.
However, there are some people who message me on their own accord to organize impromptu photoshoots, knowing that I have my camera on me literally all the time now. Santiago is one of those people. Probably one of the most artistic humans ive ever met, hes a super sweet human being. Hes a senior at Clark and we have become good friends since last year, and have done one other photoshoot together at his house.
But he got new glasses on saturday and we did a mini, of the moment photoshoot on the 4th and 5th floors of Goddard Library yesterday, messing with the bookshelves as well as the phenomenal natural light you get.
Man, its been a while since ive posted on here. I’m sorry. Its been a crazy few weeks for photography: I got the incredible opportunity to photograph one of the biggest events at Clark: GALA. Its basically a dance performance put on by ISA, the international student association, and it had 31 different teams representing diverse countries from all over the world. In short, it was incredible.
But, honestly, even though photographing GALA was a total blast, I really missed taking photos for fun. It seemed like something ive been doing less and less and I missed it. So, after sitting in Acoustic this morning after my only class was done, i took some shots, messing with the filters on my camera.
