Dailies: Jan 1st - Jan 7th

 This year I am trying to keep a daily visual journal, where I make one photograph per day. I tried keeping a written journal a couple years ago, which lasted for about eight months before I fell off the wagon (though I do still write in it from time to time). I hope to complete this photographic diary and turn it into a book at the end of 2022.

Drawing: Dr. Noodle Von Lobster


A 6"x6" pen drawing of my brother's dog, Dr. Noodle Von Lobster. I finally got to meet him for the first time over the holiday, and he's quite the gentleman!

Pinhole Fun

 


This week I made a cool little pinhole camera out of an old smartphone box. I hadn't made one of these since undergrad over ten (!) years ago. I'm going to make these with my alternative processes class next semester, so I figured I better practice ahead of time. For the actual pinhole, I used a LaCroix can. The quick paint job gives the camera a little more personality, I think. I'm especially proud of the nose lens cap. :)


Here are a few photographs I made with the cat camera. It works pretty well, aside from a light leak I think I've since rectified.

Print: Chooka

 


A multiple exposure collage of my cat, Chooka. I made all the exposures while she was taking a bath on the bed. The size of the print is 12x12 inches. A Christmas gift for my wife, Katie.
