Not only do they speak to every facet of my organizational being, they are quite useful when trying to hone in to a client’s style visually.

Have you heard of the AIGA? It’s the Associated Institute of Graphic Arts. I joined the Reno/Tahoe chapter in 2011 and have tried my best to attend as many of the meetings as my schedule allows.

One of the very first things we did in my black and white film photography course was make photograms. We would place an object on a piece of photo paper, expose and develop. Here are my photograms…

*this post started February 7th…  Just wanted to stop in for a minute to share my preliminary work for my business card design. I need to get used to my new school schedule. I’m juggling it, but I feel very disorganized and I am severely lacking sleep. This first design is a style I’m a […]

Black and White Photography

March 21, 2012

Another class I am taking this semester is a black and white film photography class. I have always wanted to learn how to develop my own film and work in a darkroom. I think this fascination may stem from a southern California afternoon when my step mom pulled some boxes out from under her bed […]
