With the basics down, I hope to continue shooting and developing both formats of film. I would like to successfully complete the Liquid Emulsion project on wood that's been sitting on the counter for a few months. I would like to at least begin to incorporate my own photography into my mixed media pieces. Most importantly, I will shoot and complete my senior year AP Portfolio, especially the concentration section.
Related to photography but outside of class, my goals also include deciding on my plan for college. I was accepted to the College for Creative Studies in Detroit with a $44,000 scholarship. My portfolio review for Kendall College of Art and Design is on February 15th, and KCAD is my first choice by far. However, the amount of money offered by CCS may prove to be the deciding factor unless KCAD gives me an equal or better scholarship. We'll have to see...

These are images from my second roll of self developed film. However, I did cheat and get these scanned at Walgreens instead of scanning them myself. This was the roll that was in the tank when it cracked open, but luckily they weren't ruined (even though the entire lab now smells like fixer).
These are my favorite images from the first roll of film I shot, developed, scanned, and edited by myself. It took me almost an hour to open and spool the film- I don't recommend an industrial can opener to open up a roll, ha. Overall I'm extremely pleased with how these came out.
Since my last post, I've learned how to develop my own film and developed two rolls. I will share some of those images in their own post.
I've also continued to work on anthotypes and photosynthesis prints, but the lack of sunlight has made it very slow work. Considering there is already snow on the ground, it looks like I'll be investing in a UV lamp soon.
In the coming weeks I hope to work on mixed media projects, mostly having to do with creative matting, stacked prints, and distressing.
I also just found out from my photography teacher that I need to start doing drawing exercises to suplement my portfolio and to prepare me for college. Since I know absolutely nothing about drawing, this is a little daunting. I hope that it will positively influence my artist skills, though.

In person, the image is much more prominent.
