Again, it’s been almost a month since I last posted. But that is because I was away traveling! I’ve been in Alaska for the last two and a half weeks and it was gorgeous. The weather there in the summer is usually how winters are in Los Angeles. It never got super cold but it was usually overcast and raining. These are some shots I got of the Alaskan Railway in different parts of the state.
I haven’t posted in a month holy cow! These are some graduation portraits I got to shoot for some friends over the past few weeks.
I’ve been super occupied recently with finishing up my semester, moving, and getting ready to go on a three-week vacation to Alaska! A lot is going to change when I get back and start my third year of college but I’m excited and ready for it; change is usually a good thing.
Finally got to do another shoot today.
This one specifically I’d been planning with my client for over a month, so I was definitely relieved to get it done today. Definitely one of the most creative/artistic shoots I’ve done, and I got to use my new fisheye lens! These turned out great and I’m super happy with them.
I went home this weekend for some much-needed home-cooked meals, real sleep, and time spent with my pup. Here, I’m experimenting with my glass prism and kaleidoscope-orb thing. I really like the last photo but it makes me sad because I don’t see my dog as often since I’m not living at home anymore, and because he’s getting old. (He’s 14!!) So you can imagine the unintentional symbolism as half of his body has ‘disappeared’ into the dying lawn.
i accompanied keila to their first visit to lacma. my favorite japanese exhibit is still there as well as an exhibit with giant glass prisms, similar to my much smaller one that i’ve been using a lot for some crazy light shots lately.
keila and I went on a walk yesterday and it was really nice. I ended up buying 2 sweaters even though it’s spring now. I’ve been having such a crumby spring break but yesterday was just so nice. s/o to keila, you’re great 🙂
Portraits of one of my best friends!!!!
I’m so happy with how these turned out. (((The thing she’s holding is a bassoon, if you didn’t know.))) The other shoot I was gonna do this week got postponed bc reasons, but I’m glad I was able to work on these and get them posted.
My week has been kind of crazy, between getting in a car accident and getting food poisoning, among other things. And it’s only Wednesday! I’m on my spring break though, so I definitely have some much needed time to relax.
I will forever be amazed by the power of editing.
I took these today and just finished editing them. Head shots are so simple, yet so much can be done to make them come alive.
(I’ve also been listening to Wavves almost nonstop this week. Kind of disappointed thought that they put out a political image on Twitter that is rather transphobic (and nsfw)).
I think with each post, I’ll also give some kind of update about what music I’ve been listening to lately, whether it’s a band or a symphony or whatever.
