I've finally set up an official flash based website which is where most of my new "Showable" work will be presented as newer, better photographs replace the old obsolete Images.

Please visit and let me know what you think.
Thank you!

My Day

I happen to really enjoy this picture. It's three exposures on one negative and they are:
-My dining room
-a student standing in the senior hallway
-two kids that sat next to me in my Anatomy and Physiology Honors class

This took a lot of planning to capture cause there was a lot of time between exposures and I had to make sure that I allowed the proper amount of space in the layout of the image. It probably would have been easier if I had made at least a rough sketch.
:-/
Oy, well I love a challenge.

Fascination

This is a really messy negative that I scanned in, Two kids that go to my high school were working in the art room on some sort of project and I just decided to...click... be a creeper as I am so apt at being and this was tthe result. I wish the girls face was more in focus rather than her shirt though the detail captured in the shirt is kinda cool.

Coughin(g)


This is a medium format shot I took with an extremely old Voigtlander Brilliant. The camera dates back to circa the early 1932
To be honest I'm surprised anything came out at all.
I also used a very very old type of developer and no scheduling whatsoever for the film processing.
All was done in my basement and kitchen.
The skeletons were projects for my senior year Anatomy and Physiology class. Three groups created human skeletons mostly out of model magic. Me and my two parters decided to take on the challenge of piecing together an old sheep skeleton.
Not so easy...
hahaha I had a lot of fun with it anyway and with how degraded the film appears they look relatively realistic.

The white scratches occurred when I had difficulty advancing the film. I personally like the effect though I'm sure there are plenty out there who believe that the image is technically ruined. To each his own.

This was shot during a music club meeting discussing the details (or rather joking around) for Emancipation Rocklamation, a non-profit benefit concert that raises money to help end slavery, unfair work wages, etc.
