I also had to select at least eight photos for my final contact sheet which was to be printed out at a 12x18 C-Type print (slightly larger than A3).  The first thing I … Continue reading Final Photos

Collective Objects

For some … Continue reading Further edited

I'm really proud of the photos I got as few as they may be. They're probably the … Continue reading Lighting Studio
