Week Seventeen: 04/22 - 04/28

I went to the Chicago Botanical Gardens this week with my large format class. It was really pretty but not that good for photographs. I would like to go again and just walk around and take in it's beauty. I entered a contest and the winner get's their work showcased at Times Square in New York City.

Week Sixteen: 04/15 - 04/21

This week I shoot Alyssa on Monday for my large format class and for myself. I went to Lincoln Park and the conservatory again, I am just too lazy to find new locations this late in the school year. Then, I took pictures of Nicole on Wednesday, here is a Polaroid.

Week Fourteen: 04/01 - 04/07

I had an in progress critique for my photography class and it went pretty well. I need to get better at speaking about my work, it's really hard to talk about photographs. I think it's easier to talk other media of art. Anyway, I'm still working on my self portrait project. I didn't have time to scan anything this weekend so you get a random video clip.

Week Thirteen: 03/25 - 03/31

I shot my first figure model on Monday, it was a really great experience. I got a lot done this week. I shot a lot and developed a lot of film (About 20 sheets of 4 x 5 and a roll of 35mm). My hands are probably dead from developing all of that sheet film. I'm too lazy to buy latex gloves. I got a lot of school work done. I had critique in my research class that went decent and I took my midterm for art history. 

On Thursday I shot Aubrey for my large format class. For my project I want to experiment with nature and artificiality. Every time I take pictures of her it's always cold and windy.
