I scanned a bunch of negatives today and edited eight of them tonight. I'm so scared that I've regressed in my capabilities as a photographer. I really hope my peak wasn't in high school, cause I'm screwed if it was. I think I'm getting too caught up in the technical aspect right now. I use to just shoot what I saw and hope I had the settings right. Granted that's not the best way to approach it, but looking at these photos... I'm scared that I've missed a lot of good chances this semester to really show what I'm capable of. These photos below are some of my absolute favorites and possibly my best work. They are a little grainy because they are originally film and scanning just isn't as good as the real thing. Nevertheless, hope you enjoy.

Above: this photo was purchased my senior year by my high school as part of an annual award ceremony. Every year (starting three years ago) they purchase four pieces of art from their students and hang them in the halls of the school. It meant a lot to me because I took the shot and printed it myself. A lot went into this photo.
