December 24th

One could say this project has fallen by the wayside, seeing as there has not been a post in two weeks. I can't really say why. Finals came about and I was very busy, and I stopped making time for it. I have'nt taken a picture in a while.

Around september, october when this started. I was feeling very unstimulated in my everday life. This blog was an effort to change that. The year will soon be out, things have changed.

And I know very few people look at this, which does'nt bother me. Having two people, and trying to keep an individual name away from it was supposed to keep it from being egotistical. So is posting regardless of viewership.

Perhaps now I am realizing what my collaborator realized some time ago.

I'm not stopping though.

Here'll be some creativitee.

Days 76-79

In the last few days Several friends and I have done some studio-style photo shoots, For the first we hung a blanket up in my room and set up around eight desk lights. We did'nt have any proper hot-lights, so that's what we did. The pictures, I thought were lovely, of Morgan especially, There were a lot of greats though. The problem with this kind of setup is that you develop a very strong sense of context for each picture, the setup becoming more evident with each shot. Does that really detract? I take countless pictures of Jessi & Morgan, does that make each one less impressive? Used to take a lot of pictures of my sister Grace. What do I really care anyway? They were fun to take, and always learning.

I like these two especially

The second shoot was in Mali's bathroom, I was worried about the lights falling in the bath, and painfully ending the lives of very dear friends, thankfully, this was not the case. Nice pictures

My Favorite

A night shot, someone once told me that digital noise was in no way an equivalent to film grain. I disagee, I quite like it. The rest were just taken over the past few days

Day 75

Everything is half fast as I can't stand it as everything I try to do I'm outdone by my expectations

Day 71-74

I took these pictures on Friday night, I edited them on Monday, This is them

This one was in Denver on Sunday, was'nt easy

I was talking to a professional and don't want to be one. At least not in the same degree. I anticipate that at some point I'd hit a block and end up shooting senior pictures in Lafayette for the rest of my life, fuck that

Day 71

The otherness of the other reveals a dimension of "height" (hauteur): he/she comes "from on high."
