The Dark Knight Will RISE

Today is a sad day for sure with the horrible shooting in Colorado. One that will certainly go in the history books. I for one am deeply saddened by the events and my heart goes out to the people in Colorado. But just as the title of the movie that this case evolves around says, we will RISE above and do our best to bond together and carry on. Today I made this custom movie poster to honor both the people who were affected and the movie trilogy that teaches us how to pick ourselves up after we fall. The poster was made from a collage of comic book pages and a fan made poster that combines all three movies that I found on the internet and modified. Then I airbrushed over the collage with black and white ink. I hope you enjoy this poster and be sure to see The Dark Knight Rises when you can. I already have my ticket to see it in IMAX next weekend. And be sure to send your thoughts and prayers to the good people in Colorado. They need them more than ever.

Photo Publications

I wanted to take a second to give a quick up-date on my photography exploits so far this year. It has been a very exciting year for sure seeing as how I was fortunate enough to make it into 3 photo publications. From left to right they are Photographer's Forum 32nd Annual Best of College & High School Photography 2012, SCAD Silver & Ink 2012, and Ellipsis - SCAD Photogroup's 1st Annual Publication. The photos that were published are Urban Theater - Venice Italy - Triangulation - Miami, FL - and - Empire - New York. So, thank you dear readers for your continued support and I promise more work will be coming soon. Keep it REAL!

National Geographic Photo Contest

It seems like I just can't enter enough photo contests. Here is another one themed around travel photography, which is what I mainly shoot so I just had to jump on it. Plus it is hosted by National Geographic so that already made me look twice. I decided to enter a photo I took on my latest trip to New York. I know National Geo is known for their impressive sweeping landscapes, but personally I like looking at architecture more and this photo of the Empire State Building shining out in the gloom on an overcast night will always stick with me. You can see my entry page on the National Geographic website here. Until next time - keep it REAL!
