considering how my blog is only about a year and a half old, and considering how its only been facebook public for about a month or two the fact that it’s just hit ten thousand views is crazy to me!
there’s been such an explosion of support, subscriptions, comments, and views (and even a fair amount of people who have mentioned to me in person how they’ve had a look around) that i have to say a HUGE thanks! it can definitely be discouraging sometimes with trying to keep constantly producing new work and being pleased with it, but it’s all a learning process and at the end of the day i’m definitely happy with where I am with everything right now.
so that being said, I hope you keep checking back and by all means have at the comment box too! getting feedback here is the best!
first of all, sorry for the lack of updates! getting back to school and out of work mode is going a bit slow. i really got used to keeping up a good photo momentum this summer along with work and such, so its hard to have other projects on the go plus wedding editing plus classes PLUS needing some free time to just breathe. don’t get me wrong though, i definitely enjoy school and it’s all good so no worries. i just wouldn’t turn down a few more weeks of summer!
anyhow, my first photo project of the year was due yesterday and due to the quality of the prints i had printed (it looked like i’ve never learned the definition of focus and or quality) i figured i’d upload them here instead. the assignment requirements were pretty open and just required that we worked with color. i’m actually really happy with how a lot of the photos turned out, even though I usually prefer black and white!
most of the photos are from around corner brook, some are on top of marble mountain, some down the bay or up the coast, and some are completely random I know.
as much as i love photo, i’ve definitely been missing the more hands on/arts of my degree lately and tried out spraypainting recently just to give it a go. this was the first side i did and it’s defiiiiinitely rough (i kinda had to suppress the urge to spraypaint black all over it a good few times) but i’m half happy with it now, for a first attempt at least!
so i got to spend the day with bri and treat her to some ice cream just a few days ago, and after we were finished she let me take some photos of her (i’m still editing away at wedding photos and haven’t gotten much time to use my new camera) so i figured i’d share! she’s such a beauty.
hope you like! i’m really looking forward to getting more and more into portraits once the rest of my summer editing is finished.
