Egyptians on Capital Hill

Posted by in Uncategorized

         In many ways, the Egyptian Theater and the changes it has experienced over the years tells the story of Seattle, itself. Opened in 1915 as a Masonic temple, the symbols set in stained glass and beautifully maintained Egyptian-style painted ceilings are a testament to the care with which its various owners throughout the years have preserved its unique qualities. Over the years, the theater had been a hub for independent and foreign films, in addition to reviving obscure gems and cult classics in their Midnight Movie…read more

Edward Burtynsky

Posted by in Insperation

Edward Burtynsky is a photographer that I admire, I researched him for a project in class and I really came to respect his work and his cause. He is a Canadian Fine Arts Photographer who creates large format industrial landscapes. He uses his work to create awareness about how our world is changing. I really respect that he is not out there as an activist he is just trying to start the conversations that could lead to change. “I don’t see myself as a card-carrying activist at all, but I…read more

Enlightenment

Posted by in School

We were given an assignment to film a 1-3 min video with the theme of ‘Enlightenment.’ Kasi and I brainstormed many interpretations of the word and came to a common theme of cooking. I know this seems like an odd correlation but for us the ability to eat and to create food is enlightening. Kasi and I both suffer from food allergies and end up more often then not being the ones watching everyone else eat good food and starving until we can get home and cook something safe. Both…read more

6×6

Posted by in School

In Faiths’ module we were assigned the task of making a 6×6 reel to a haiku. This was a fun and somewhat challenge/frustrating assignment. Challenging because haikus for as common as they are, are not an easy thing to find! There are many websites dedicated to explaining what a haiku is, and lesson plans for teaching them, and I remember learning all about them in like 2nd grade; however if you want to find copies of published haikus you are S.O.L.! I also found it challenging to remember that mundane…read more

Premier tutorial

Posted by in School

This week I had to give myself a crash corse in Adobe premier in order to create a clip-o-matic reel for my Narrative class. While I do find Adobe to be user friendly, usually, the “where do I even start,” problem is very real with their products. This is a youtube channel I found that had very straight forward and helpful tips for someone who is just starting with an Adobe program and from there it was easy to apply what I already know from Audition! Here is the link…read more

Opening Scene

Posted by in School

My favorite opening movie scene is from Pride and Prejudice (2005). I might be bias because it is my favorite book, but I particularly enjoy this movie for its musical score and because the directors of photography (Roman Osin) and light, painted an amazing picture that carried the audience right into the pages of Jane Austen’s novel.

In this blog I would like to put the spotlight on Alexx Henry he is the pioneer of the living art movement. This movement was birthed a few years back but it just entered my world. Alexx contends that the future of photography is motion, as we know this is an evolving industry. So, what is the living art movement about? Living art is the idea that whatever media is in the form of print will be published digitally in the future. Consequentially, if something is published digitally it is…read more

Personal Project

Posted by in School

In class we explored the concept of personal projects. As a photographer/creative individual I go through phases of inspiration and of being too busy to be inspired. When I get inspired I have waves of ideas flow through my minds eye; I see concepts, start to stylize, see image captures I want to achieve, and always get overly excited about it. Every inspiration I have ends up in a little journal I keep with my notes, an outline of what I want to achieve, and any other mediums that inspire my…read more
