The Women

This is a project I've been working on over the last few weeks. It's actually the piece of work I'm the proudest of that I've made in a long while. I think it's kind of a cool idea, just showing one bit of a face, of all the girls that really matter to me in my life. For those not in the know, from left to right we have, my Mom Jane, my sisters Katie and Maggie, my nieces Abby and Kendra and my girlfriend Rachelle.

Photoshop Class

Technically the class is called Digital Photography, but it is, in essence, Photoshop. It's one of my favourite classes so far, but  I'm not so sure I'm happy with my work in it. The class has really driven home for me that the strength in Digital Manipulations is in the pairing of great concepts and great skills. And I'm not so sure either of these pieces show exemplary concepts, and the skills are still coming to me slowly. This is not to say I am not proud of these pieces, only to say that they especially remind me that a piece could always be better. That's the joy of art.
The pieces are London Normal School for a project called Photomontage, and Maggie's Last Leaf for a project called Illusionism.
