*Friday, February 1
Friday I went to meet up with a fellow photographer and friend of a friend, Michael Strickland (be sure to check out his work, it is extraordinary), to explore around Lawrence a bit. I had never been there before, so he was kind enough to show me around a bit, and we did some location scouting for a self-portrait of mine. The sunset ended up being amazing, though we had to kind of rush to find a somewhat decent spot to shoot from.
More to come from our adventure in the next few days probably.
And I may edit this some more still, but I just wanted to get it posted.
I ordered a Holga lens for my Nikon last week, and got it in the mail yesterday. I went out shooting with it for the first time for my grad work this afternoon and decided to try out a double exposure with it. This is pretty much SOOC, just a bit of a contrast boost.
For those of you who may not know, a Holga is a cheap, plastic film camera. They have a plastic lens, and are known for their soft focus and heavy vignette. They now make lenses like this that can attach to DSLR cameras. Since my grad work is about Alzheimer’s I thought it would make more sense to be shooting with a lens that distorts and disturbs the images like this instead of getting “perfect” photographs.
My boyfriend is finally here visiting. After being apart for 4 months (and the last time I saw him I was dealing with dry sockets) it is so incredibly wonderful to be together again.
My 366 may be a bit lame this week since I will be spending it with him, so apologies in advance.
This is where I spent my night, and will be spending most of my weekend. Between printing stuff for critique and getting thing mats ready I will be in studio almost constantly over the weekend, and pictures for this project may suffer because of it.
I went walking around downtown with a good friend/fellow photographer this evening for something different. We stumbled on this house or office right downtown that was pretty overgrown and I knew right away what I wanted for my 365 and what I would title it.
Just like yesterday I was taking one set of photographs and happened on another. I liked my other ones, but was thinking my 365 needed a macro and abstract shot since it had been a while. I plan on re-shooting the other idea at some point, once I get some more materials.
As for this shot, does any one have any guesses as to what it is?
