Statement: My current project, “Doodle Portraits,” is twist on social media filters. While I typically find myself capturing portraits and posed images, I wanted to elevate them. I was originally inspired by long exposure light painting but struggled to truly capture the doodle-like images I was seeking. Hence, through utilizing transparency papers, I was able to doodle onto the sheets with dry-erase markers. I then layered my transparency doodle onto the photo paper while flashing the lights, and then the magic happened – my doodles transformed my photographs. From a snorkeler to an astronaut dog, I enjoyed creatively changing the lives of my subjects, one doodle at a time.
