Operation Kindness

Operation Kindness

Recently I had the pleasure of working with Operation Kindness, a no-kill animal shelter located in Carrollton, Texas. They want to get to the word out about adoption! They have a large variety of cats and dogs at the shelter; all sorts of breeds and sizes and even puppies and kittens. Honestly, it was difficult leaving without an animal in my hands. Anywho, below are some stills from the small spot a friend and I…

Instant Lunch

Over the past semester I’ve submitted several photos for projects in my photography class. Now that the year is winding down and there is only one project left, I’ve been looking through everything and thought I’d share some. They’re all really different since I basically compiled an assortment of my favorite shots. Enjoy! One more project to go and the year is over! I can’t believe how fast time flies…I realize that sounds terribly cliché…

Oozeball

My school has this annual mud volleyball tournament they like to call ‘oozeball’. I’ve never participated in the past, but this year my friends put together a team and of course, I tagged along with my camera. Surprisingly, it looked like a lot of fun! I’m not a big fan of getting dirty, but I’m fortunate enough to have some friends that are. They were caked with so much mud by the end of the…

Of Men and Poodles

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot the cutest poodle ever! His family was away on vacation and I was babysitting him, so the most logical thing to do was, well, take photos. He, like most dogs, was very interested in the camera at first and tried desperately to get his nose in my lens. But after a few shots he seemed to get the hang of it and stayed where I…

Behind the Masquerade

Just thought I might include some photos from the aftermath of my ‘Masquerade’ shoot. For the future, I have learned that acrylic paint is not the easiest thing to get off. Not so much to say about these! Hope you enjoyed nonetheless 🙂 Happy trolling!

Black and White Masquerade

Black and White Masquerade

I am officially on a black and white binge. Coincidentally, I’ve also been researching portrait photographers lately for school and find myself running into a lot of dramatic black and white portraiture that has prompted me to go on a complete binge this week. After being flooded with all this inspiration, I walked up to my roommate, asked her to be my model, and proceeded to my portrait studio. Or, well, ok, it was just…

Meet Chloe

Meet Chloe

This is Chloe. She’s the German Shepherd my brother adopted a couple of months ago. While I visited, I thought I would get some shots of her to post up here because I absolutely love dog photos and love them even more in black and white. Also, this is the last California post. Excuse me while I go and cry.              Honestly, I find black and white portraiture absolutely fascinating….

The Light Effect

The Light Effect

This week I decided to try something I’ve always found fascinating: light writing. It’s not exactly a new idea, but I’ve never spent a reasonable amount of time testing it out before and so decided to see where I could push it. Most of the first shots I tried were simple shapes: After having success with several of those, I tried incorporating the lights off-camera: I feel as though these last two could have been…
