High School – Roll 7


Blog, Photography

These photos are all bad. Really, I had to pull up the negatives to make sure I didn’t make a mistake while scanning these and sure enough, they are all bad. It looks like I had some weird light leak or development issue because every single photo has some sort of rippling along the strip. […]

High School – Roll 6


Blog, Photography

Another roll, another group of photos that I am not thrilled with 18 years after I took them. What I am finding out is that I wasn’t great about keeping my negatives in order in high school. I wish I could jump back in time to give a brief PowerPoint presentation to my younger self […]

High School – Roll 5


Blog, Photography

There are two groupings of photos in this roll of film. One grouping was the official assignment from my class and one grouping was a side project. The school assignment was “long exposures” and I’m happy with exactly one of the photos. And by happy, I mean I’m ignoring the muddiness of the photos so […]

High School – Roll 4


Blog, Photography

This roll of film is far from my favorite, nearly every photo is under exposed. What’s more than that is that I didn’t like the assignments we had to complete with these photos. I see two in particular, the self portrait and the still life. I struggled with both for some different reasons and some […]

High School – Roll 3


Blog, Photography

This next roll from my high school photo archives was very under exposed. Nearly all of the photos needed to have their exposure bumped up a bit so they’d be viewable. I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that they were largely taken indoors, but also I wasn’t really using […]

High School – Roll 2


Blog, Photography

In continuing to share the photos I’ve taken with my film cameras over the years, this next roll is the second one I shot in high school. I cannot, for the life of me, remember what the exact theme or assignment was here. If I had to guess, it was one of two things. Either […]

High School – Roll 1


Blog, Photography

The photos below are the first roll of film I shot in high school photography class. If I remember correctly, the assignment was just to take a roll and figure out how to use the camera. Speaking of the camera, I believe this was the only roll I shot on it. We had a week […]

Squandered Potential


Blog

I had a bit of a quarter life crisis last night. I stumbled around the online profiles of people who I knew in high school but I have since lost track of them. I assumed they got to the same place everyone else did, like I did. They should all be off working dull jobs […]

Prom 2013


Blog

Remember back to high school. Now forget the good parts because we’re remembering prom and the bits leading up to it. Well, maybe they weren’t really good for me. The more I think about it, I had a great time at prom but terrible choices in prom dates. Sorry for those prom dates, if you’re […]

The Next Spielberg


Blog

I was recently flipping through my high school year book from senior year. I’ve come a long way. I also completely forgotten that I was voted “Most Artistic” and “Most Likely to be the next Steven Spielberg.” Yeah. Those are related actually. This caused me to dig through my closet and all the digital files […]
