The best yet

I know most here probably don't care about the shooting I'm doing at the Columbia Daily Tribune, but it's cool to me, so I'm going to keep posting.

Today I had what was probably my best day of sports shooting yet. Here's the slideshow I made from it:

Inspiration: Sublime, beautiful tree portraits by Myoung Ho Lee

An image from "Your Place and Mine"

A photo from my last senior project was accepted into an online juried exhibition @ PhotoPlace Gallery. Caleb Cole chose 40 images for the gallery in Vermont and 35 for the online gallery. Soon they will publish a book through Blurb of all the selected images. Check out their website to see all the sweet self portraits people are making.

kayla goes high key

Here's some images for my advanced color final. The image quality was not what I initially expected, but to my benefit, the shit quality is want I'm looking for. These were shot with extremely expired slide film which I cross-processed...only to find the whole box is fogged. Yikes. When I pulled the rolls out of the tank they looked as if they hadn't been fixed at I cried, thinking I was screwed. But then I scanned these dense/bullet proof negatives to find magic. 
The images all have slight color casts. Generally a mint flavor or bubblegum sensation. Can't decide if I should keep the casts or nix'em. Project shall be in book form...I may be feelin' the casts. 
The project deals with the recollection of our memories. Exploring what's left behind, if there's anything left at all. What's fading. What's vague. What we desperately desire to hold onto. 
Thoughts are greatly welcome!

photographs from a delightful spring day



A couple weeks ago, on one of our 60 degree days, the Advanced Color class took a field trip to the Gallagator Trail. Here's what I got! Shot with the Mamiya RB67 on some super expired Kodak E6 slide film. Cross-processed with C-41 chemistry. Lovely.
The dog's name is Lola. 
She's cute.
