Prints: Selt Portrait and High Key

These are the last prints from my portfolio.. two are self portraits (one for the last assignment and the other for portfolio) and then an image from my high key assignment a while ago. Now I can post other things! Horray!

ChrisPark and Holga

35mm adjustment on my Holga for my time and space assignment.

Double enlarger, using negatives taken at ChrisPark in San Antonio. I'm considering a series of these, using various writings from the park.

Prints: Mobile Home Park

My final portfolio for my black and white class is due today, so I figured I'd scan in a few prints I did before my work disappears for who knows how long. The first one I scanned in at home and the second at school--you can tell the difference. But I forgot to rescan in the first, so this will have to do.

These are from a few days I spend wandering mobile home parks in the area. The first man, I forget his name, but the second one was Cliff. He was a photographer for the navy in WWII and gave me the airplanes he's holding out of tin cans. These tin planes now reside on my porch.

A Day in Vernal

Vernal, UT, just a few miles away from the Wyoming border is one of the few towns that is booming despite the economy failing all over the country. The housing market cannot build enough homes for the workers moving in, resulting in multiple families moving into small spaces, hotels being booked months in advanced, and men worker's camps for all the foreign oil men coming in. I went with an advanced communications class in December to photograph these stories being written, and so I got to go everywhere and show what a day in Vernal is like. I went on tours of oil rigs, into elementary schools, and drove around town with the County Commissioner as she explained the housing situation to me. These are just a few photographs from this agriculture and mining town of 8,163.
