Dirty Diana

I went to a burlesque show at the Peacock Room this past Thursday. I was anxious to use my Diana with the ring flash again. I took some photos (which I have yet to upload) at the BoldHype gallery last weekend. I was disappointed that the photos came out kind of dark. As always, I was anxious to experiment and figure out how to fix the dark photos. I picked up some higher speed film and shot a couple of rolls at the burlesque show (which was so much fun). I played around with multiple exposures, holding the shutter open, and whatever else I could think of. I enjoy the mixture of motion and color. Here are the first of the photos.

35mm Test

A few months back, I made a foam adapter to hold 35mm film in my Holga 120N. Wow, I just looked and I got the Holga back in mid July. I didn't realize it's been just over a half a year. Anyway, I made a foam adapter thing (I have some photos of the creation of it... I still ned to post it). I also got another camera yesterday. I'll post a couple pix of it and some info as well. So, after this roll of film sat in my camera (in my car) for about 8 weeks, I decided to finish off the roll and get it developed.

St. Valentine's Day Massacre

Here are some photos from the Black Valentine's Party (my 31st birthday). The parties keep growing. I can't wait until next time!

This is my favorite song right now. I just heard it the other day, but I am already obsessed.

Birthday Weekend

These three drawings are from figure drawing this morning. I have had such a great birthday weekend. There will be photos of the Black Valentine's party soon.

I got to go out for my birthday last night and dance to some of my favorite 80's music. I didn't get to hear OMD, but I thought this song was fitting for today.

Gotta Be Back In Time

I love how saturated these photos are. I am not sure if its the film or the Dianna that does it. There are some more photos to post from last weekend. Tonight is the Black Valentine's party (and my birthday party). Today is my last day of being 30. Hopefully I'll manage to get some pictures while I am running around.

Never a Dull Moment

After breakfast Saturday morning, I remembered my camera was in my car. I had considered trying to get some photos Friday night when I saw the Duke Ellington Orchestra at the Plaza Theatre. I didn't bring my camera in, and so it was sitting in my backseat. I wanted to shoot the last few frames so I could finish the roll and get it developed. I decided to drive downtown to take some pics of the new fire department. As I passed the Historical Center (where I saw the Jim Henson exhibition last year), I saw a truck and SUV with Ghostbusters markings on them. I walked back over to see what was going on and found the museum was opening a new exhibit. Of course I had to go see Ecto I (Ghostbusters is one of my favorite movies) and get some photos.

This was one of my favorite numbers from the Duke Ellington concert.

Fade Out Again...

I saw my sketchbook lying on the desk in the other room. I forgot about this sketch I drew, waiting around in the airport on Christmas Eve (whilst listening to Radiohead). I am building a collection of airport drawings apparently. I like to kill time waiting for flights or in the waiting room at the doctor's.

I've been looking at applying to Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) recently. I am anxious/nervous to get a Master's degree. I have been wanting to go back to school ever since I graduated from UCF. Well, this degree would be earned entirely online. I started thinking about the limitations of attending a school based merely on proximity. I need to beat my portfolio into shape. I haven't really worked on any solid projects outside of work since I graduated.

I just felt like watching Street Spirit (Fade Out).
