See you next week.
I have recently created a website to expose my work – both digital and film photographs. There’s also a section for video that I will be updating soon. The site is running in TEST now. Would really appreciate if you leave some feedback here in the comments or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org .
I did my first ever short self-portrait documentary film for a Documentary Production Class that I’m taking at AUBG.
The documentary is about my passion for photography – film photography to be precise. You can read a post I did a few months ago about the importance of film photography in my life here. And see some pictures that I took on my film camera here.
The film will soon (tomorrow-the day after tomorrow) be available on this website .
