It's like a Swiss Army knife of mad skill

So you all know by now (hopefully) that I'm an artist, and I love pencil drawing in particular. Admittedly they're all rather one-track-minded, but that's fine because I think they're awesome anyway. :P

At any rate, I also really enjoy photography, but I've never had enough money to devote to buying a particularly high quality camera. So what's happened up until recently is I've had to resort to using my cell phone camera (it's pretty useless, but that's not much of a surprise.)

Here are a few of the "good" ones I managed to capture with that 1.3 megapixel camera:

They're all right, but it would still be much cooler to be able to take pictures of PEOPLE with an ACTUAL CAMERA.

Well, it seems that good fortune was on my side a few days ago, because I got a text from Katie Duncan (see an earlier post for what she looks like) saying "Come be our photographer!"

Some of the freshman swimmers had decided they wanted to do a photoshoot, just for fun. It was a pretty cool idea, but I couldn't really take part because I don't own blue jeans (more on that later, possibly) That was fine by me- I was happy to be the picture guy.

So I got to use Hillary's camera! Admittedly it's not as good as the REALLY expensive ones I had gotten to use with the NHS art department, but it was leaps and bounds better than the one I had.

Here are a couple of my favorite shots that I took:

Oh, also bear in mind that since this was Hillary's camera, she didn't upload everything. So a couple of the really good ones never made it online. Boo.

Anyway, the pictures, for real this time:

By the way, introductions, from left to right: Taryn, Katie (you already know her), Daniel, Hillary, and Cali (you already know her too).
I had to basically steal him for this one. But I'm a huge fan of how it turned out.
This last one is my favorite by far, for obvious reasons. It's just so freaking great. Thanks to the people in it for setting up such an awesome composition!

I need a camera. I also need to do my homework. Oops.


  1. The NHS art department has crappy cameras. Just saying/just being a stuck up brat about my awesome camera. You should definitely save up for a good one! I promise it's worth it.


  2. I didn't own jeans either until... 9th grade? 10th grade?

    and those steps look a lot like NHS. Just saying.
