Print Scans

I previously mentioned I'm taking a darkroom class and next Monday we are having our first critique. I'm a little nervous but I feel confident with what I've developed so far. For the critique we need to have 5 prints and 5 contact sheets, I managed to get 6 prints! Going into this past Monday (a week before the critique), I was particularly nervous because I had only had 2 prints and one contact sheet. But boy was I determined because in 2 class periods I managed to get 4 prints and 4 contact sheets. Here are my prints in that I developed them so you can see the progress I've made in 7 weeks of class.


^^This print took three tries and an hour and a half of hard work to get, but I'm thankful I spent that much time on it because I really learned how printing works. ^^



Fingers crossed that my critique turns out good! - Jessica

My Life Lately According to My iPhone

Hello internet! This is my attempt to try and catch up with my blogging by sharing a few photos lying around on my phone. Lately I've been primarily taking pictures with my film camera and within the next week or so I will hopefully have a few prints to share. But for now here some snapshots!



Also I visited the bay area three weeks ago! I'll post some more photos from my trip soon. Till then you can see more of my instagram pictures @7remedies -Jessica

Snowy Days

Texas weather is really weird, somedays it can be 20 degrees outside and then the next day the high is the sixties. Texas weather has been so weird this year that school has already been canceled three days, once due to snow and the others were for icy conditions. Usually in Austin we are lucky if it snows once a year, but this was the first time it had "snowed" in two years. Typically we get about an inch of snow making it basically sleet but snow is always fun.


McCoy really liked the snow! As soon as I let him off his leash he was running and sliding everywhere (actual footage of this here).
