Photoclub, in which i am the student rep for, had the privileged of learning how to print color photographs at Udevelop in Portland, OR on saturday. Can i just say right off the bat i fell in love with it! honestly deeply i would live there forever love. I spent two and a half hours in heaven with Dan and Willy on Photoclubs dime, I wish they had been open for just a couple more hours. Although I gave my one gorgeous print to Margo I will get it back from her to scan in and share. In the meantime heres some prints from my learning process.
this is the value motel, I took these shost with my canon film camera, it was a bright day but i love how washed out this looks. The building is full of symmetry and old 19something charm. i always wanted to photograph it and when i finally worked up the nerve to ask the manager if i could do so, he was very lovely and had no problem with me on the premises.
On saturday photoclub has the lovely privledge to go to Udevelop in portland, or. I am looking forward to developing these prints in the dark room and watching them magically come alive.
Sanithna Phansavanh, the fabulous Atlanta based artist, sent me this while in Holland. I only own the post card addressed to myself, Eric Carros, my ex, owns the other. Although i would like to get it from him so they can live together again.
Its framed above my bed, i kind of am in love with it. You guys should check out his site, www.sircle.net
When i bought one if my Polaroid Land Cameras from a garage sale it had a handful of these mounts with them. I love the typography on the bottom picture. They unfortunately are not the right size for my 669 film, just a hair off. Im planning on doing something with them.
Polaroids taken from with my land camera around my house. I love documenting the house i grew up in, i feel like when I have children it will be a good look into the past.
i get bored at work, in the computer lab. when worst comes to worst i make patterns. im not in love with this one, it needs more work, but i like the grid it made. the top pattern was made from an original fawn drawing and the bottom pattern is from an original giraffe drawing.
i drew this out of an acorn with my foot at the bus stop after my cinema class on wednesday. i was hoping it made someone smile after i left, because that bus stop is so depressing.
secretly i wish i could design textiles. i could sit at the computer all day and design patterns. i was just doodling in illustrator and came a tear drop shape, then several of them, then several more. i originally had the image of rain in my head, 'cause of the pnw's currently weather, but it turned into this. i like this. i am content with this.
