Till next time!
Hey guys! So I have finally sat down and gathered my thoughts on everything that has been happening in these past couple of months leading up to my first solo show, Collodion Obscura!
The one of the most important things for me to have incorporated into my show is to be able to display originals. In my show I only have 4 showing, and they are all ambrotypes. My dad and I built the little displays for the glass.
Some BTS on the day of the show with hanging. A BIG GIANT THANK YOU to Chrome Digital for all the printing and helping with handing the bigger pictures, and of course, letting me use the space for my first show!
All of these prints are for sale off the wall! Email me if interested or have any questions on size and material.
Till next time!
Hey Blog, Its been awhile.
I don't know where to start. so Ill just say, I hope to post more.
Earlier this year I got offered by Sergio Gutierrez (who collects all sorts of oddities, including tintypes and daggs) if I wanted to particpate showing my tintypes along with some amazing artists at Norco College Gallery . Obviously, I had to say yes. I have never really shown any of my stuff out of the San Diego County and thought it would be good exposure and experience. So after long long long weeks of figuring out what to frame, then actually framing it, Its was the day of the show.
So on Septemebr 10th my parents and my boyfriend drove up all the way to Corona to see the show.
The artists I was along side of :
A BIG GIANT THANK YOU to :
If you live in San Diego, you know that summer really starts when the fair is open and everyone is out of school. I started going o the fair about two years back with friends and to of course see all the arts and crafts that are at the fair. Especially the photography part of the fair. I never had the guts until this year to enter something into the fair for the Student Showcase. I always thought that my photography wasn't good enough for a competition. I wanted to wait till I was a bit better at it to enter. So I always went there looking at the photographs and congradulationg my friends and other students at the college .
So this year, I thought I was much better at the craft of Wet Plate Photography and decided to enter in a tintype I did this year. I orginally wanted to enter in the professional part for alternative process but missed the deadline by a few days, so I was left with doing the Student Showcase.
Even though it was second place, I felt a little proud of second place. And congradulations to all my classmates that entered and won a place! So after I saw my photo I went to enjoy the rest of the day and took only a couple of photos from the day!
