Monster Monster

For my final project for Design 2, I will be making music packing for The Almost’s album, “Monster Monster”. It should be fun considering the concept they went for on the album cover. I have a few ideas in mind..

Portraits of Strangers – Danny Santos II

Portraits of Strangers - Danny Santos II

I saw her sitting on the stairs outside of a mall, talking with her friend. It seemed like a lively discussion. She was the first girl I’ve approached for this project. When I asked “Is it ok if I take your picture?” she comfortably said “Sure.” I was pleasantly surprised, but was still very nervous. As I took this photograph, I was actually struggling.. thinking: “Steadyyy… man, I hope she doesn’t notice my camera shaking.”

Following Photographers, Twitter Style

I like finding photographers that inspire me. If I find one I like, I usual like their page on Facebook or follow them on Twitter. If you like one photographer, it directs you to even more photographers. It’s pretty cool how social media is useful for everything!

One photographer I’m following is Ken Kaminesky. It’s not that his photography is necessarily my style, it’s that I really enjoy his tweets about other photographers doing cool stuff out there. He also goes beyond the photography world and shares about other art and social media related things. Check out his photography as well. He’s a travel and lifestyle photographer. His photos are very intense, he most likely uses HDR and other editing techniques. Check out his blog as well.

Flickr, Facebook & Family Force 5

 

So one of my favorite bands is Family Force 5. I saw them for the first time last year and I’ve seen them two more times in the month of November. At these last two shows, I had the opportunity to get a photo pass (connections pay off). One of my favorite things to do is take photos at concerts and since it was one of my favorite bands, I was thrilled. I always take a while going through my photos, picking favorites, and editing them. By the time I got them up on Flickr, was the end of December, but shortly after that I got a notification on Facebook from my friend that commented on a photo “Michelle Arenz”. I was so confused when I looked to see that he posted that on one of my photos, but then I noticed that hundreds of people liked the photo and were commenting on it. Long story short, Family Force 5 used my photo as their Facebook / Twitter profile pictures. I was so surprised and honored, although they didn’t ask for permission.. Oh well. They gave me credit and linked to my Flickr page that gained in popularity very quickly. Since then, they have used two more of my photos. I guess they like my work almost as much as I like theirs!
