Todays installment of my photography project!! I shot with Alice today, probably one of the most expressive, real, humans at Clark. We moved around campus, shooting around maywood, and against a white wall of Oliver’s Corner Store [shameless plug? i guess so], talking about everything from Bruno Mars to taking breaks from social media.
Guys, this project is honestly letting me explore a full range of human emotions, and i couldnt be more greatful of the people who are letting me talk to them while photographing them, and to the people like alice who just see me in person and right then and there schedule shoots. I wouldnt be anywhere without you guys, so thank you ❤
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?”
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:
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.
So, yesterday, I went into Boston for the day to do some urban exploring. Little did I know, however, that as soon as night fell, I would take photographs that I would never forget.
It was around 6:00, I ran from Government Center to a floating deck near the Aquarium to eat my dinner (subway — eat fresh!). Literally ran to the other side, to find the entirety of the harbor shrouded in mist and fog — naturally as a person who turns into a complete child when she sees fog and mist, I screamed and walked straight into the unknown.
Sat on the floating deck, looking out into the harbor, which as of then, was completley covered. You couldnt even see 5 feet infront of you without being shrouded in mist. The only things you could see were the hazy lights of the dock and the red/green lights of the boats as they cruised by. Honestly, it was probably one of the most surreal experiences ive ever had, considering I absolutley love the rain.
These are the photos I took during dinner as well as when I walked around the financial district near the aquarium.
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.
