Silver Print; 6″ x 9″

For this piece, I wanted to take a formal photograph of something clean, structured and “real simple”, which it is at first glance. I hoped to keep the viewer looking around the image–multiple glances–to find details that are a bit off-putting…not quite what you’d expect or want to find at your table.

Homosexuality and Religion - Web Ready

Digital Still; 7.5″ x 11″

This piece is based around the idea of Homosexuality and its relationship with religion. The couple photographed is an actual lesbian couple, both of whom study this topic quite extensively. This is also the first time that this couple has been photographed together outside of “selfies and snapchat”. This photograph has encouraged a new series to be submitted to the new Women’s and Gender Studies department’s contest on campus, illustrating the lyrics of “Same Love” by Macklemore.

An experiment I did with blurred motion. I created the streaks of light using a slow shutter speed and moving around with battery powered lightbulbs. Initially, I was going for an effect that resembles lightning coming out of the ground, with added emphasis on the random and equally linear streaks of light.

Description: This image was for a motion project. We had to shoot blurred motion and frozen motion. I thought shooting my teammates on the equestrian team jumping would be a good way to show frozen motion. I like how horses look when they’re jumping, so freezing that motion with my camera was really fun and interesting to see.
