All my photos

I studied photography for three to four years in college. Did some portraits as you can see by my class assignments uploaded here. But mostly I fell into infrared. Specifically, Kodak HIE. Something about the B&W, grain and halation just really excites me. Of course to contradict myself I find I have been doing more standard B&W. HIE is such a hassle sometimes. I'm not really into color photography with the exception of some street events.

I've been on a sort of hiatus for the past several years but suddenly have gotten the fire back. I was asked to show some work here in San Francisco this coming December. So that's most likely what started it all up again.

I personally prefer to take the pictures and print them without any digital manipulation. Though I find I'm very good at that particular thing I just don't feel right about it. I find that I just can't take as much pride in it as if I did it the conventional way.
