What do you make of digital photography?

I'm so angry about the digital world. I have actually gone the other way now and am taking pictures with an 8x10, like they did in the 19th century.
My love for photography is so deep-seated that when you go up to a photograph and put your eyes a quarter of an inch away from it, I want to see that resolution. I want to see the beauty of the medium. and when you digitize. I don't care who makes that print, even if it's the greatest printer in the world, you will get that fuzzy, pointillist effect. It's like looking at polyester and then looking at silk".

Student Exhibition @ Australian Centre for Photography

Tonight is one of my proudest moments... I had a student exhibition tonight at the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP). It was one of my goals to at least exhibit one photograph this year, and it happened! Yay for me!
I'm on a high at the moment because my photograph is in the main gallery area... I'm so excited!
If your in Sydney check out the exhibition its on till the 4th of October and there are awesome photographs from other students! ACP is located at 257 Oxford Street, Paddington.

Here are some pics from tonight that my sister took...




my name is on the wall :)

I'm Back

So if your wondering why I haven't posted anything for a while it's because I have been in the Philippines for the past 2 weeks, I left 2 days after my birthday.
My grandma was ill, and she passed away while I was over there. I just want to thank everyone for their condolences and please keep my Grandma in your prayers.
