New (Old) Street Photos

I never got around to posting my first film photos that were taken on the streets of Milwaukee. Something was wrong with my film advance, so a few of the shots were lost/messed up. You can view my other photos in the Street Photography section of my Portfolio. Please feel free to comment!

Evan and Jenny’s Engagement Photos

It’s been awhile since I have had a post! Anyways, I was lucky enough to partake in my second engagement photoshoot a little over a week ago. Evan and Jenny are a great couple and it was so easy to photograph them because they were constantly smiling and laughing with one another. I had a great time and I wish them the best of luck! As always, feel free to comment and thanks for looking!

Getting “creative”

Okay, so I was bored after class today and I took a few pictures of random objects around the apartment, as well as one out my window (the first image). I guess I can say I was attempting to show my “creative” side…Anyways here they are. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think! Thank you!

Chicago Auto Show

This past Saturday I took the day off from any schoolwork and decided to head to downtown Chicago for the Auto Show with a few wonderful friends. I took quite a few pictures; however, very few were from the car show. Instead, I wanted to get more practice with my newly acquired 50mm. I got more experience in Street Photography, both before and after the Auto Show, as well as some portraits and architecture shots. Anyways, here are  a few of the images (11 to be exact). You may find the street photography pictures from my Saturday rendezvous under the Street Photography section of my Portfolio.

Revisiting 2 Old Photos

Something I have learned while taking up photography is that I enjoy to go back to older photos every once in a while and re-edit them since my Photoshop skills have grown since then. Another reason I like to do this is to practice when I am pressed for time and don’t have time to take new photos, or I like to see if other effects will make the pictures more interesting. Anyways, here are 2 photos I have recently revisited. The original edit is on the left and the new edit is on the right. Click on the images for larger file sizes and better resolution. Thanks for looking! Comments are always welcome!
