How to Create Abstract Photos Using Minimal Objects!

Hi everyone! Sorry for not posting a lot recently! I was wrapping up the school year with exams and finals. In a few days, I am off to summer break! Anyways, amidst all that studying and cramming, I was able to capture abstract photographs. This is not my typical genre of photographs, but I had an assignment in my photography […]

More Parchment Paper?!

Yes, you read the title. I recently experimented with MORE parchment paper in a recent project.

However, I am able to carry on their memory with my name. I like to integrate my heritage into my modern life by incorporating roses whether that be through […]

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 […]

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 […]
