Big website update!

Updates:

  • Two new galleries
  • Description in the sidebar for galleries and other links
  • Made slight formatting and text changes
  • Changed several images
  • Fixed faulty Alt-Text in the Experimental Digital and Details galleries
  • Added two items to the publications section of my CV
  • Galleries now rotate instead of stopping at the last and first page
Visit the site and let me know what you think! I’m open to suggestions.
At this point, one thing I’d like to do, that I don’t really know how to do, is get the alt text from the links on the
left hand sidebar to not show up under the mouse as well as in the space made for them in the side bar.
The BR tags look really weird in the alt text, I think, so I’d prefer it not pop up under the mouse at all.
Let me know if you know how to do this!

Here is an image, included (at this point) on my site in the black and white gallery.

This is an older shot of Derek, shot during my hallmark days.

I don’t want my work to be sexy. I feel like every art director out there is looking for sexy.

Here are some rolleicord snapshots from when Beth visited me for a couple days over winter break.

Myspace buddy shots with 50 year old cameras don’t really work.
And man that hair had to go so bad. That’s it at its worst.

Good old Mr. Pizza.

One of my photos is currently being featured
on the Savannah College of Art and Design website.

It’s crunch time now. Two weeks left in the quarter.

I’ve got a pinhole camera to make
(I’m going to do a two 4×5 panoramic camera that can be converted to a sort of 3d illusion camera.
Not sure yet how it’s going to work though, haha)

A cyanotype to make from a digital transparency.
A salted paper print to make from an 8×10 BW negative.
Four lit on location shots with different models for my portrait class.
Two more galleries to add to my website, and some modifications to make to every gallery and my CV.
Two gallery shows and two photo contests to submit work to.
A whole bunch of district work.
A large amount of behind the scenes and event photos to process and throw up on facebook.
Some kind of flash thing for the website class
although I refuse to include any actually on my website).
Shooting a fiber major’s portfolio.

And, oh, important, figuring out what I’m doing over spring break!

Some pictures taken for a class assignment, wedding dress portrait.
I didn’t get to set up my own lighting, but I decided to shoot using the hotlights and go for a more toned image.

This class is so weird.

Damn long day today. I shot around 14 people in studio for a feature in district and a class assignment.

I’ve got to have the shots retouched and printed by tonight.

I almost missed updating (but I’ve got 30 mintues! haha)

Film scan (slide) from test roll last year.

I’ve got two more to retouch and then I have to print them all.
I still might be able to make my pal’s 21st birthday party. I hope.

Zachariah got a new bike a few days ago and brought it over so I could take a look at it.
I took some snapshots of him messing about with it.

Someone asked me recently about the image on my business card.
It’s a picture of an eye and they wanted to know whose eye it was.

Well, here’s your answer.

It’s cropped down from this picture, one of my early studio BWs from a while back.

By Jordan Singer


Here are a couple pictures that Jordan Singer(meninsteinbergschildlitszsky)
took of me for his project on Jews.

Also, I’m having a root beer for the first time in a really long time and I swear the stuff is fucking me up.
I used to drink soda all the time, but I hardly do at all these days, and keep my caffeine intake
almost entirely tea based, if at all.

It’s crazy how much some stuff affects you if you don’t have it in a long time.
I had some milk the other day too and I never drink milk anymore
(don’t worry mom, I still have calcium and vitimin D in my diet)
and it really messed with my digestive system.

sucks cause I was craving cereal.

my life is an adventure, I know
