This week I got together with these two lovely gals, Katie and Jenny Rogers, to shoot my Hurrell Portrait assignment. For those of you not familiar with George Hurrell, he was best known for his glamorous hollywood portraits and dramatic light.
Anyhow, this was the first time I had met both Katie and Jenny in person, let alone photographed them in a crammed studio space, but they did great and everything ended up working out really well. I am very happy with how these came out!
A big thanks to their friend and hair stylist Julianna Cordy who gave them these dos! And of course to Katie and Jenny Rogers for being so excited and easy to work with! I can’t wait to do more shoots, especially once the weather gets nice.
Keep your eyes peeled for the next shoot in a couple weeks. Bigger set, more props and a more elaborate image. I’ll be watching Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” and taking mental photographs tonight :)
Here’s one of my favorite shots from my last roll with the Mamiya 645! They’re these little sesame and chocolate snacks made to look like hamburgers, which is perfect because who wouldn’t want little sesame and chocolate snacks hamburgers that fit in the palm of your hand?
I bought this beaut at Pike Place for less than $5 bucks. It’s a Pincushion flower and apparently its herb is supposed to cure itching. Well, I used it for my “floral” assignment where we were supposed to shoot a flower using strobes. So I did. And I made it look like this flower was on stage singing its little heart out. Who knew flowers could have so much stage presence and soul?
P.S. Gotta love the Baby’s Breath
Mamiya 645 Roll #2! Fuji 400 film! The forest shots are from my “Wonderment” shoot, which I will post photos from pretty soon here! Pretty happy with the way things are going with this camera let alone the pictures coming out of it. In fact I am dedicating a post to my favorite picture from this roll and its gonna have a punny title muahahaha
No, but really. Ten dollars for these two opera glasses? I can already see the photos I want to take with these bad boys, thanks Value Village!
Larabee State Park and the people I love, I can’t wait to see you this weekend! I’m packing the Mamiya 645, some color film and going to photograph you, all of you.
Here’s my shot for “Flat Clothing”. I spent 3.5 hours, especially getting everything to hang with fishing line….bahhh! It feels super mediocre and I wish it wasnt sooooo cutesy looking and I wish I had more time to do what would have been a second image in a diptych for this….maybe I will do that other image just to prove that pink isnt the only color I embrace in my life….

Hey! Look Ma! It’s my first ever roll shot with a Mamiya 645! Film was Ilford HP5, 400 speed. The negatives turned out really good but thanks to poor scanning due to being too impatient, I had to do some minor editing. Either way I am super excited to keep playing with this hunky chunky dream of a camera and to see how my color roll from this weekend turned out! Click “Read More” to see the rest of ‘em!
I think this will have been the best meal I have made as a 20-year-old. I dont know though, I still have until May! Thank god I have a boyfriend who likes cooking and eating as much as I do!
Anywaaaaays….time to get ready for my big photoshoot at Discovery Park today, rain or shine! You hear me Seattle? RAIN or SHINE! So excited:)
I usually don’t do style posts, but sometimes I have moments of personal style victories that I want archived in some way other than Photo Booth pictures on my laptop! Plus, my friend Ivan was like “Girrrrrl you betta wear that fur coat right!”…so here’s the proof! haha
Big thanks to Jed for the photos and my school for having such beautifully, naturally lit stairwells!
It’s that time of month again! Hey, speaking of ART, Blind Art Date is having their first official meeting this Saturday at noon at the Caffe Vitta on Capitol Hill! Come on over, come on over baby!
So after learning how to use our own strobes, we got taught how to use the fancier, big kid strobes that we have in our studios and then asked to shoot food! Here’s my first try at it! Seriously though, with all the good looking, fresh food thats up on the walls I have to seriously reevaluate my mac n cheese diet….maybe:-P
Last week, my conceptual class gave out an assignment titled “The Eggness” in which we were asked to create an image that is our interpretation of the essence of egg (woah, that was a mouthful!). Anyways! Here is the image I used, the rest are just some of my favorites from the shoot. The first thing that came to mind was the color pallete and textures of an egg and how eggs are almost like small compartments of existence within our bigger world. So what did I do? I painted her face white, made her spit orange juice, gave her a homemade pipe cleaner crown and shot the image through seran wrap and vaseline! A big thanks to Lauren Colton for spitting so much orange juice in public and to Jd for assisting!
Also, keep your eyes peeled. Our next assignment is to photograph a word, and let’s just say I got the word “wonderment”…so so so excited!
January 30th marked my juan year anniversary with my boy! Photobooth pictures and a really good fancy dinner date at The Pink Door made for the occasion, amongst other things tee hee! I could not ask for a better person to share a year with. I am quite the lucky lady and so grateful for it! I love you Bradley:)
