Some more shots from New York
This is my first camera. The Minolta SRT 101, 35mm film camera. I am very lucky to have inherited this camera from one of my greatest influences, my grandfather, Huba Nagy. This is the first camera I used while learning about metering, aperture, shutter speed, film speed, composition, lenses, and technique. Although I don’t use it nearly as much as I used to, I still have a very special place for it. Every time I shoot photos now, I always refer back to what I have learned over the last 10 years. I hope that one day when I have children, I will hand down this camera, and teach them about photography in the same way I was taught.
Took a class at CSULB last semester titled “3D design.” I had no idea what I was getting myself into, as the course description didn’t give away too much information, but it turned out our first project was to design and build a chair using only a 4′x4′ piece of wood. The hardest part was figuring out how to utilize the piece of wood in the most efficient way, without running out of wood! The chair is actually constructed of 14 pieces of wood, that I measured, cut, sanded, and fit together using wood glue and a nail gun. The hardest part was fitting everything together once all of the pieces were cut, especially the back of the chair as most of the pieces are actually notched together. Anyways, I think I’d like to build more chairs like this, maybe adjusting certain measurements. enjoy!
Posted a video to Vimeo yesterday of my puppy Molly. I used a new technique that I’ve been experimenting with called “lens whacking.” It’s basically where you film using a DSLR with the lens completely detached from the camera body allowing for extra light to filter in (light leaks) and also allows for close-focus, similarly to how an extension tube would work. Definitely gives it more artistic flavor to whatever you’re shooting. Here’s some screenshots of what I came up with. enjoy!

Here’s some selected photos I took from the LACMA this weekend. The museum featured a special exhibit of work from Stanley Kubrick’s filmmaking. They had a lot of really cool stuff from each movie he made; cameras, lenses, props, costumes, storyboards, etc. All photos taken with iPhone 4, edited with Adobe Lightroom 4. Enjoy!
Haven’t posted anything for a while, so I thought I would add some more photos from work I’ve done. Here are some assorted photos from three different photo shoots I was hired to do last year. The first group of shots is from a living space in Hancock Park, Los Angeles. The second group of shots is from a living space in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles. And the third group is from a living space in Venice, Los Angeles. What I really enjoyed about these spaces was the abundance of light that poured into the rooms. I wouldn’t mind living in any three of these spaces! Anyways, enjoy.
