09.30.2017: Cloudy with a chance of redemption

Ugh. I meant to go home this weekend to chill with the fam, but guess who has a giant 2 day midterm monday and wednesday? Had to study, and as the first grade of the entire semester, this is kinda important, if you know what I mean.

But, I did have some time to sporadically shoot humans (santi)  while I was working on an outline for my exam and some campus shots when i walked to make tea. I also caught some geese flying over the church on a morning walk (comment if you can see them, its a bit faint, but they are there!), which was probably one of the best timed photos ive taken ever.

Kinda nailed the aesthetic though, and was just proud of the unedited raw photos as I was with the edited photos.

09.28.2018: Starry Night

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.

09.25.2017: The Fence

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.

09-20-2017: Night

I dont know guys — today has kinda been a mental rollercoaster. I took an uncharacteristic 2 hour nap and kinda woke up feeling something was missing — couldnt quite place my finger on it — maybe I was in someone elses headspace for the day, and was translating that in my own way.

Went to a club meeting that ended at 10 and was feeling the same way ive been feeling all day, so i went up to the roof of the parking garage on campus to clear my head and think creatively. I had been writing earlier today about creative limitations I wanted my photography to fall under, with a huge emphasis on shadow play and empty space (to simulate a lot of mental depth and space inside my own mind).

And these are my results:
