Two days...

For some reason I thought it was a good idea to delete all my posts a few nights ago..turns out it wasn't.

I'm graduating in two days and I'm so excited. It's been really amazing seeing my friends' and my own work progress over the last four years. We hung our senior show two weeks ago and it looks better than I could have imagined. This graduating class really put out some of the best work I've seen.

My professional website is up and running: I need to get some of my work posted as fast as possible since I'll be handing out my business cards at the Preview Party tomorrow night and I want people to actually be able to see my work if they visit the site.

In other news, it's been almost a month since Grandpa passed away. I started shooting double exposures at the farm with my Holga right before he passed and I haven't been able to put it down since. I took this photo three weeks before he passed and it's the last picture ever taken of him.

I thought I was completely burnt out photographically, but since I've been shooting film I've been so inspired. I guess it's the digital component that I've been straying from. Film slows me down and I concentrate so much more on my composition and lighting than I have been with my DSLR. I know I'll get back into the swing of it soon, but I definitely needed a break.
