Happy New Year!

First off, happy new year! This past year has been crazy with the pandemic. However, a positive thing did come out of 2020. My blog! I started my blog due to the isolation associated with the pandemic. It brought me the opportunity to express myself even more by having the ability to explain the photographs that carry great meaning to […]

Recent Youth Competitions

It is finally winter break! I hope everyone had a productive fall semester. I sure did! This past semester, I entered a few youth competitions, national and international. I heard back from two of them last week. In the Drexel University 2020 Photography Contest, my photograph “Propelling” was chosen to be included in the exhibit. Next, I was included in […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is around the corner, so I would like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday! Who are you guys thankful for? One of the many people I am thankful for is my brother. For starters, he is generous enough to model for many of my photography projects! Recently, he modeled for a project using cheesecloth. This photo series symbolizes how […]

Tinfoil

All of these materials from my kitchen, like parchment paper and tinfoil, have seemed to be useful these past few weeks as I experiment more with photography. During the last couple of weeks, I have been working on a project utilizing tinfoil. I ripped up strips and shapes of one of my history essays and intertwined it with strips and […]

More Parchment Paper!

I was assigned a project to use screens in a photograph. Given my prior amazing experiences with parchment paper, I decided it would be fun to incorporate it into this project. I took my phone, as the screen I needed to use, and put up a photo I took a month or two ago. Then, I placed parchment paper over […]

Throwback Thursday: Scholastic Keys 2020!

This week, I am working on some unfinished projects, so I decided I would create a post on my past work that won me my first few regional photography awards! Specifically, I earned a Gold Key, Silver Key, and an Honorable Mention award from the Scholastic Art and Writing competition held earlier this year. This photograph was taken of Emily […]

Pantyhose Project

A couple of weeks ago I described the different fabrics I picked up at JOANN Fabrics and Crafts. When I was taking a few self-portraits with those sheer fabrics, I decided to put a pair of my mom’s old pantyhose over my head. Even though my hair became a mess afterward, it was so worth it! I hung a white […]

Happy Labor Day!

These past couple of weeks have been hectic! A lot of schoolwork and adjusting to new routines and schedules. This weekend I had time to experiment with different photography ideas because of the long weekend (happy Labor Day everyone!). Because of the pandemic, I have still been playing with self-portraits and the self-timer on my camera. Yesterday, I even went […]

Summer Comes to an End

This summer has been incredible. I was able to take photographs that I would not have taken otherwise if I spent the summer at sleep-away camp as planned. Life is full of surprises, and I am grateful I was able to take advantage of the craziness of the pandemic to expand my creativity. I decided to include one of my […]

Secret Garden

These past few weeks I’ve been exploring new places while spending time with family. I, of course, took my camera with me just in case I saw something unique or interesting that catches my eye. As a photographer, I almost always discover a fascinating photograph to capture. A week ago, I was taking a stroll down a beautifully lit path […]
