Mixed Media Photography

For our next project, I must incorporate some form of analog art with my digital photography. I began researching and found this artist who puts photos of her family and friends onto metal pot lids. I obviously won't use her ideas because I want to be original and more importantly, I don't have lids lying around, but it got my creative juices flowing. Check back in a couple weeks to see my solution to this problem.

The artist's name is Sally Mankus.

This is a 6 second exposure at about 10:30 pm in the Graveyard by my dorm. I had friends with me earlier but then they went home and I stayed for a few more minutes and got this shot. Then I ran Home! :)

Bikes on Campus

I love riding my bike, and I discovered today that there are tons of people around campus(some of them very interesting people) who enjoy it as well. I spent about an hour today photographing Bikes in Newark using the panning technique I recently learned in class.

Panning with Cars

Panning works well when your subject is moving quickly. Because I was shooting at a crosswalk and the cars sometimes must slow down for pedestrians, I unfortunately missed some oportunites with some cool cars. But I am pleased with the shots that I did get and I feel very comfortable with the panning technique now.

I took advantage of the position of the sun near Old College at 5:00 to capture these fun shadow shots.


My first major project in my Into To Digital Media class was to take at least 100 self-portraits. Here are some of my best shots.

First Blog Entry

This is one of the photos I took On our first day shooting in class.  I like it because it has pretty good whites and it also shows a good change in values as the light wraps around the base of the collumn.  This was taken on the steps of Recitation Hall on September 9th.  It was raining on and off, but there was constantly cloud cover and thus very little sunlight.  I would have liked more sun because I think The lightest parts of the Collumn would have been brighter and enhanced the image.
