On Friday, I visited DUMBO for the first time to check out Pratt’s senior thesis show at the Powerhouse Arena! That area of Brooklyn is so wonderful; I couldn’t help but take a few photos. (The 28mm on my 6D is a dream come true!)
me, all touristy ‘n stuff
Late last summer, a few days before I left for college, I had the opportunity to second shoot Melissa and Tyler’s wedding with my awesome mentor, Andrei Jackamets! He’s graciously letting me share my portion of the shots here on my blog. :)
Hi folks! Things are slow around this blog right now…whoops. But it’s spring, and I have prints upon prints to scan and negatives upon negatives to print and three rolls of color to send out for processing, and more sunlight with which to shoot. Once the semester ends I’ll be blogging like crazy, I’m sure. For now, have a couple of freelensed photos from yesterday :)
So I know it’s been a while since I updated my blog – things are kind of crazy between school and work, and I’m trying to keep up with everything as it is. (I’d rather be in the darkroom printing than sitting in front of a computer blogging anyway.)
This is a series of self portraits I shot over the month of February entitled “bathroom portraits” for now. I’ve always had a weird thing against shooting indoors and wanted to challenge myself to work underneath poor lighting and with a space not traditionally used for portraits, and with the implications of the bathroom – a private place, a traditionally insecure place.
Miscellaneous photographs from November and December, prior to winter break. Minolta SRT-100 + Ilford Delta 100, my favorite film to date (and the ugliest when scanned straight from the negative).
Gillian’s first snowstorm.

I’m off to scan darkroom prints! Excited to finally show everyone what I’ve been working on (but if you want a sneak preview, you can always follow me on Instagram).
Trying to stay up on blogging and scanning and maintaining some semblance of an internet presence, but life (namely – being a college freshman and working in the photo lab) gets in the way. Nonetheless, work was cancelled today due to the impending storm, and I’m wasting an hour before heading into the city to see Passion Pit, so – here are some shoddy 120 scans from winter break.
Norah and I went out in the snow to shoot these – it turned to rain fairly quickly after we got there, but it was exciting enough driving around in the snow with it pelting my windshield and floating up and getting lost in my hair
Some diptychs made with my half frame camera, spanning the beginning of the semester (September 2012) up until the day I left home to come back to school after winter break (January 2013). Canon Demi EE17 + Kodak Portra 400.
While I was at home over break, I shot Mike and Amanda’s maternity portraits! They’re expecting little Pippa in February and I couldn’t be more excited for them :) We even caught the beginning of the snow while we were shooting, while it was still pretty and before it all melted.
