Manilla Surprise

For my senior portfolio class, we all were given a manilla envelope with either an object or written directions for use to follow in order to create an image. Mine was to photograph myself with every pair of shoes I own!
The reception for the show is tonight from 6-8pm at Camera Arts in Sacramento, 57th and H. The show will be up until February 4, 2008!
Here's my final image!

There is a photography convention next March in Las Vegas that I really want to go to! Its the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention. It costs about $600 plus the cost of the plane ticket, the hotel and all my food. But I think it would be really beneficial, so we shall see. There is a scholarship that's available that pays for the convention, the plane ticket and the hotel plus a years membership to WPPI. I have until the end of the month to send in my stuff, but I think I can get it submitted in time. We shall see though. It would be nice to win it, but then there's always the next one!

Nevada City Photography Trip

Well, last Saturday we went to Nevada City for our photography field trip. I along with fellow classmates felt that the subject matter was lacking, dull and boring. However, these are the shots that I found interesting enough to turn in for class.

Last night

My friend Morgan is almost 9 months pregnant and I went to visit her last night. I hadn't been to her new apartment before and it was very nice, classy and cozy, very Morgan, if I must say! We had a really good visit and it was fun to spend time with her. She also let me do some pregnancy photographs of her and her baby belly. I think they turned out really nice!
We'll see if I decide to offer those types of photographs when I have my studio...

Some recent work

A place for my work

I have created this blog esspecially for my photographic work. Probably because at the moment, I cannot afford a real website. I've decided that not only will I use this blog as a place to show work, but I will also write about my work and things that inspire me such as other artists as well as musicians, dancers and writers. I think its important to remember that photography is an art form, and there is so much that can fit inside the definition of "art." As my high school art teacher used to say, "Art is whatever the artist says it is."

I can only hope that my readers and viewers will be inspired when they view this blog. Thanks for looking!
