crimson photography

"The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred" -Soichiro Honda, 1906-1991

i am a photography student that works with both digital and film photography, though i greatly prefer film. all of the film and prints are hand processed in the darkroom by me using archival paper and materials, though most images shown here are negative scans due to lack of a high quality scanner. most of the work shown here can also be purchased from me, but expect them to be priced accordingly to the work put into them.

i'm always open to requests and if you live within the midwest area i'm always available for commission work if it's within my possibilities. i hope you enjoy my work : )

update

sorry everyone! i’m really sorry for my prolonged absence, my family and i have been going through some very rough times and so i have not had the chance to get online much within the past month or so, and usually just to check facebook and my e-mail (which is why i’ve managed to answer some of my ask box messages). i entered into a pretty big photo competition called hey hot shot and listed this photography tumblr as a website (since i don’t have a flickr account) so i will probably try to get on again sometime soon and update that, but i can’t promise when i will be able to really update this tumblr with all the photos i have in store. i promise i have at least 100 pictures for you guys, i hope you’ll enjoy them! i will try to be back in the swing of things by the end of july, but i’m sorry if i’m not :/ i had been conversing with a couple people on here before i disappeared; i’m really sorry, but there’s no way i’ll be able to see the reply’s, message responses, etc that you sent. i really would like to keep in contact, and if you can message me on facebook or even into my ask box i will try to respond as quickly as possible. also, my e-mail is for.everfree@yahoo.com, if that is more convenient, just lemme know who you are on here when you write : ) sorry again everyone, i hope to be back with you all again soon!

sorry everyone that i haven’t posted much recently, things have been a little hecktic on my side of the screen. on the plus side, i passed motorcycle class, and was able to finish my final portfolio for photo III in time : )

speaking of that, i will upload those images probably some time next week, this week is incredibly busy for me. unfortunately, they will again just be neg scans, i wasn’t able to gain access to a large scanner, but if i ever do, i will be sure to scan the 11 x 14 fiber prints, they’re of a much higher quality, since i fine-tuned (lots of dodging, burning, and cropping) the images in the darkroom for much more satisfying results. 

more bad news. since my class is now over, after the aforementioned uploads i won’t be posting anymore film prints for awhile, until i can either build my own darkroom or (hopefully) get accepted into Columbia, where they have a wonderful darkroom. hopefully my digital work will still keep you all interested : )

also, this coming weekend is a very large convention in Chicago called ACen. i’ll be attending thur-sun (which is why this week is so busy) and taking pictures of everyone and their cosplay. any that i particularly like i’ll post here, though i apologize in advance as they will be completely different from anything i’ve presented here thus far, so hopefully they won’t scare anyone away. ordered a great timer for my T2i, so hopefully sometime within a month or so i’ll have some star trails and dynamic cityscapes up here, please look forward to it! 

again, thank you to everyone old and new for your feedback and support of my work, it’s very uplifting and i will continue to do my best to improve my craft for all to see : )
