About Me

My photo
I'm a Guilford College graduate with a B.S. in Criminal Justice; I minored in Visual Arts Photography. My blog tracks the highs and lows of my experience in a Film Photography course during the Spring of 2013 and up to the present, as I delve into digital photography. I may even include other mediums of art such as acrylic paint, graphite drawings, etc. I'll talk about my experiences snapping photos or simply snapping from frustration as well as my successes and failures, tips and tricks that I've learned, and exploring the photography/art world through the lens of a Black woman.

Artist Spotlight

Gary Mitchell
Mitchell has been doing artistic nude photography since 2005. He chose to concentrate on the contrasts of light and shadow, rough and smooth, as well as traditional and unexpected. He's been published all over the world. I believe that I admire his work, because out of all the artists that I've been researching and looking into, he was the first one that featured nude models. When I first got into photography, part of me wanted to see what it was like to photograph people in the nude. However, I didn't know how to go about getting models for that or figuring out which of my friends and acquaintances would be comfortable enough with doing that. He doesn't compare to other artists that I have spotlighted, but as previously stated, he's the first one I came across that specifically did nude photography. He's pieces can be found in the following link [x].
