Censorship Final

This was a quick project I just finished up for my college’s (UCONN’s) art activism club (LAVA). hopefully It’ll make it into the magazine. Who knows. I like it. I wish I had gotten slightly better results on the torn edge effect, but I didn’t really try all that hard on it… I only have my self to blame.  Hope you enjoy it.  I was going to add some red splatters to it at the end, but it just didn’t look good.  Image

Papoo

These are some portraits of my papoo i took the other day with flash in his garage. Hes always been really mechanical and he loves building, so i thought taking the shots in his garage with all his tools would be a nice setting.  The great part about flash and black and white is that the color casts of the flash and all the ugly colors get washed out and all that matters is the lighting and the tone.  I like how these came out. Didnt really do too much editing, just banged them both out in like 10 minutes each, which is minimal for me. There kinda dark, but its whatever.  Any ways, I’ve been sooooo  busy lately with my school art show and what not, so i havent been up on da web, but i finally am back so… ya.

Me (DRAWN!!!)

Tiffany Li, the most amazing portrait drawer I know, did this commission of me, based off the self portrait I took last post.  She did such an amazing job.  Every time I see her work, I am speechless, because her work is just that amazing, or at least i feel that way.  I haven’t even seen the real one in person yet, I’ve only seen this scan of it.  I’m so happy with what shes done and I can’t wait to see the original.  I think she should get a word press personally cause all her stuff is at least this good.

Me

One final post for a week.  I’m having a friend from school draw a portrait of me over vacation, and since i dont have photoshop at home, I thought i might as well just upload them here, and just link them to her wall.  So this is me, hopefully I’ll get her drawn portrait of me up in a little.  Not sure which one I’m using yet, so thought I’d just post up both.  Edited in camera raw.  Would have like to spend a little more time on them, but i dont have that stuff.

Best Waves I’ve Ever Seen in Madison

I’m talkin about Huricane irene.  The week before it hit,I had just got my camera, so i was so psyched to take pictures. It was so much fun running around, taking shots everywhere i looked.  It kinda felt like i was a reporter or something.  Irene wasn’t all fun though.  My whole town was out of power for over a week, and things got a bit smelly, if you know what i’m saying. I should of uploaded these a LONG time ago, but i didnt, so i’m putting’em up now.  This’ll also be my last post for a WHOLE WEEK! I’m gonna die.  I’m gonna cry.  So much badness.  I am gonna do a crap load of editing though, so I’ll hopefully get some good stuff up.  SO ya. Have a good week, especially if your on vacation, like i am. WOOT!

A try at minimalism?

I was looking at some minimalist photos online a while ago, and i really love how they look. There so simple and clean, and they just look good.  I guess I’m not being a revolutionary or anything though, cause when I decided to give it a try, I when to the one subject every minimalist seems to shoot: The Ocean.  I gues it makes sense though cause its so vast and empty, but connects everyone together, and a ton of other stuff people always say about it.  Any ways, gave it try.  Liked it in black and white and color, so i did both.

Benched

I love this. Took this on my digital camera a while back and almost deleted it because it looked like crap in color, but its truly stunning in B&W or at least i think so.  It simply a mom and son on a park bench, looking out at the playground, but it has so much more to say.  There body language differs so much, and i love how the boy is suspended and care free, while the mom is grounded and up tight.  Hopefully it looks as nice on your monitor as it does on mine, because contrast, darks and lights being kept the same r really important for this shot.  Edited only in camera raw. Entered it in a contest and didnt even get in! Guess its all in the eye.
