A presentation I gave for the Southeastern Photographic Society on September 8, 2023.
Photography is one of the more technical art forms, but as a designer, I’ve been trained to break things down to their very essence, and I’ve carried this mindset into my photo journey. From making my own pinhole cameras and exploring the art form at its most basic to wielding my digital SLR to capture the extraordinary in the mundane overlooked landscapes of our daily lives, please join me as I share my passions and processes for both pinhole and abstract photography.
