PHOTOGRAPHY!


























One of my first art loves was photography and when I was at University we were still using dark rooms, developing our own film and printing our own photographs. Learning digital stuff has been hard for me! Lately, I have been wanting to get back to my photograhs though. They were all about creating a story of somekind and I loved searching thrift stores for vintage clothes and props. Here are some of my photographs all taken with a manual 1969 Pentax camera my dad gave me and printed the old fashioned way(most by me). I realize that I don't really miss the chemicals so much, but I want to take new photos! All of my old "models"(willing friends) are too grown up now for this so I have to do self portraits which is ok but not as much fun. I am wondering why I didn't grow up too though. More next time!

GREAT PICS!!! As you know i dont go ANYWHERE without my camera and my video flip. I have been dying to get some really good cemetary shots (old statues etc) I especially like your layered shot in the cemetary..did you layer photoshop it??

thanks! hope you are doing ok today. yes, for years i didn't go anywhere without my camera and was always dressing up friends(and myself) for these photo stories. when i took these i didn't have any digital stuff so i did it all in the dark room-i did a double exposure for the cemetary shot of me as a ghost coming out of a grave. i also developed all my own film and printed my own photos. i took my photos with a manual 1969 camera my dad gave me. now i guess i need to figure out photoshop but it is so foreign to me! hope you can get out and take more photos soon. wish me luck entering the digital age!
