Smokey Fall 2008
Dudley, MA

I'm just going through all my images from last semester to chose images for the book I'm going to make about this whole series. It'll be nice to see it all together. I'm at a point where it feels like I've hardly made any photos for this series, I'll be glad when it's in book form. At first I didn't really want to make one, but now it feels like I absolutely have to.

The Thursday before spring break (2/27) we had a special critique with some clark alum. They liked what I did last semester much better than this semester, because it was photographs of things they would possibly see, but overlook. So over break I shot a roll with that in mind, and voila! got great feedback. That critique made me realize I was searching for photos, not taking advantage of what was just happening. Not that I dislike the photos I made earlier this semester, but these are more... something.

In this last one, I'm in the process of taking out a window on the left, so hence black mess. I'm also considering taking out some of the yellow in it, and in the middle one.
Anymore additional feedback is always awesome and appreciated!

Summer 2008

I'm in the process of scanning in everything from last summer, and I found this image. There's something off still to me in the colors. I think it's got a little too much orangeyness in it. But I'm more concentrated on getting everything into digital form right now. More to come!
