If any of you still read this you'll probably be shocked to see a new post. Sorry I have been neglecting this page for so long. Life got in the way, and I fell into a bit of a creative slump. I'm putting up some new content tonight. I'd like to think it's good, but I've been looking at it for so long I've kind of psyched myself out. I suppose if you don't think your own work is shit you're probably not much of an artist. Or something.

This is a very old picture. I'm not exactly sure, but it's either 9 or 10 years old. Compositionally it's fairly pedestrian. But the important thing is that it was shot on a very old, manual focus, film SLR, with a prime lens. I developed the film, enlarged, and printed it myself. This is a scan from a 6x4 print that I made in either 2002 or 2003. For some reason I did not do very well in the high school photography class that I took this picture in. It's a crying shame really, because I would like to think I was pretty talented, but the popular kids hogged the equpiment pretty bad. Anyway, sometimes you have to look back to look forward. Although I took a long time off Photography, I really do think that learning how to do everything the old fashioned way is one of the things that sets me apart from other photographers who have only ever worked with digital.
EDIT: WATERMARK ADDED IN LIGHTROOM CAUSE I HATE PEOPLE TAKING MY SHIT.
