film & fourth year

Dru-1 Horses-1 Me-1a few favorites from a roll of film i’ve had in my camera for a few months now! dru actually just bought a scanner, so now we’ll be able to have all of our negatives uploaded and in a much better quality than the discs we’ve been getting from walmart. much better!

on another note… my fourth year project has been ordered!

(panic totally ensued typing that).

but seriously, that’s it, that’s all, its done, and there’s no making changes now. such a weird feeling! i just need to stop second guessing choices in the mean time. it was hard to narrow down what i’ve been up to and i would never be able to include everything that i would like (i’m a bit nonstalgic for shake face right now) but my teachers and few friends i’ve had to get opinions from have been supportive of what has been put together. so, i think i’m going to be really happy with it! only 29 days until the show, and the days to no more classes count… 16!

hope everyone’s having a good week!

much love,

double exposure: photoshop edition

LR Double Exposure-1i’ve been curious for a while what it would be like to start doing manual double exposures, so on a fairly spur of the moment trip to st. john’s this weekend to see my sister i took advantage of the 8 hours travel time both ways and tried my hand at them.

i’ll admit i’m pretty much photoshop illiterate, so i edited both images in lightroom first and them imported them into photoshop, played with opacities, reimported the final images to lightroom and fixed minor details and clarity. thoughts? it still doesn’t touch film (duh, considering film is the best) but i think it might be interesting all the same.

hope everyone had a good weekend!

much love,

magine

Dave-1 Dave-2 Jess-3 Magine-4 Magine-5so for demo day at marble mountain just a few weekends ago i had the chance to work with one of my favorite people (and photographers!) David Howells again while on a shoot for Magine Snowboards. and although the weather was mildly uncooperative, we all still managed to get a few shots and figured i’d post some outtakes.

a huge thanks again to dave for asking myself and jess along, and to the Magine boys for being so good about it too!

much love,

jessica & adam

Preview-4 Preview-3 Preview-1 Preview-1-2it might have been (absolutely freezing) out but it sure looked pretty! these guys were troopers letting me drag them to a few places around the city, and i couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. hope you like!

bennett family!

Bennett-18 Bennett-27 Bennett-32 Bennett-40 Bennett-44 Bennett-47 Bennett-53 Bennett-69 Bennett-75 Bennett-82 Bennett-84 Bennett-87i was lucky enough to meet this little doll’s parents while on the jamaica wedding trip we photographed back in december, so when tonya contacted me afterwards and asked for a family session i had to say yes! she and lee are absolutely hilarious, so i of course jumped at the chance to meet their little head banger. (tonya has a video of emily doing this, not kidding. its hilarious).

another fun fact: lee has the fastest growing hair of any person i’ve ever met. when i met up with them for this shoot at first glance i didn’t know who he was, considering his much darker head of hair compared to very closely shaved head he was sporting in jamaica. truth.

in all honesty though, they were a wicked family to shoot and i’m really happy with how the photos turned out. hope you like!

much love,

meagan

Meg-1i’ve just started shooting for our year’s grad booklet, and meagan was probably the best we could have started with. we shot for maybe 5 minutes and despite her apparent awkwardness (her own claim, not mine) i have a good few favorites i’m really happy with.

and that’s about the only project i’m happy with as for now… school blues have set in. i feel like exam week has already arrived. the metaphorical exam week of course, because being in art school means no actual exams, just papers and projects and proposals out our ears and noses. but still. its exam week because the end is [relatively] near but there’s too much work standing between now and then to get excited, because if things keep going at this rate it’s going to be a long time until april.

as a do-er, its frustrating to know what i want to do, and not be able to do it because of other make-work assignments that are getting in the way. sometimes, i think my over-efficiency is a downfall. does that even make sense? i’m efficient when it comes to being productive with what i want to do, but if it doesn’t help me or help me complete a goal, i have a hard time maintaining interest.

stresssss city.

(i know it’ll get done. i also know it always works out. but for right now… its still 78 days and counting).

much love,
