Darkroom


Well Hi....
Favorite genre of photography.
I stand pretty firmly behind portraiture and fashion editorials. Anything with extreme expression or originality. I love the energy and result of a black and white portrait just developed in the darkroom, hence film would be my favorite technique/format. I also have found myself recently leaning towards more candid, street, documentary style work. Good, good stuff.

So school, what do I want to learn? I think my main focus aside from becoming more familiar with everything and gaining some effortlessness, would be to learn more digital technique. Gaining perspective on the commercial aspect of things and how to actually make a living would also be up there. But the whole experience should lead me somewhere good....I hope?

Favorites, doing what I do?
Man, I love the unexpected. All my most fabulous moments have come out of total randomness. But more importantly, I think using my best friends as primary subjects over extended periods of time as really thrown our relationships into different realms and has opened us to getting to know each other better artistically. I give lots of credit to photography for getting me better comfortable around people. Yay
