I have looked at digital images to much and i dont even browse through digital gallaries or anything. i have talked with alot of digital photographers that are look at doing more film work. also some polaroid photographs i know that are cuting down on that and going to 35mm,slide,and medium format photography which is where im going to fall into once the weather gets better. its easier for me to get slide film,and 35mm developed and cheaper sence i get a discount where i work. i love working with slide film and cross processing it that is why these features are cross processing with slide film. the colors really come out very well, which sence i do more color work then everything it just all draws me in.

So i had my interview today with the chicago art insititue and i hate to report back that i didnt get in for the fall semester.my porfolio and application got in but i had to take their placement test because my sats scores came out bad and sence i have a problem with writing i didnt do good so i was told i should take some summer classes in english then come back in oct to retake the test so i can start in the spring lets just hope it all works out.

In other news Im going to try and get more prints to purchase if anyone happens to be interested in this information haha. basically ill be making lots of the polaroids i have taken prints.

another thing i cant remember if i said anything about it last time but once the weather gets nice ill be back to talking photos again and the way it looks it will not be long tell i get back into the game it was over 30 yesturday which isnt bad for winter in indiana.im be coming together with a good photographer friend of mine to do a project together which will be nice to get to work with another person on something like that. in the meantime while i wait for the weather to get nice ill be doing more deviant things like looking at others works for equitment ideas i want to start working more with film cameras all i have is my holga and 35mm which i dont spend the needed time using my holga. but i i will be able to you more 120 film once the weather is nice so i can ride my bike to the camera store downtown to get it developed.also i will be doing alot of things with features right now each journal feature will have some sort of theme so it will be easier for me to find people around here to feature.

Update

when the weather gets better i will be doing more 35mm and medium format work. im hoping to work with more black and white film then i have been but still doing my daily dose of colored photography just because that is what i reather do. also a good photographer friend of mine has offered to teach me how to develope some stuff using sunlight i cant remember what the processes is called for the life of me but im really excited to try something new and work with processing my own prints  again sence i havent for a year now. it kills more not to be in the dark room creating stuff with hand made texture filters. Also i have my interview with the Chicago Art Insititue friday and i will not by the end of that day if im geting in or not i have my porfolio all done besited figure out which 4 of my polaroids should go in to it so if any of you have any suggestions fill free to to voice them on which 4 you think would be great to put into it there are so many really good ones i have a problem picking one.also i have a hard time hateing my own work haha well thats not such a big problem. In other news i have my website up and running now its half finshed so if you would like to take a look

www.amandaolbrys.com

I have the concept there its taking me alot longer then i thought but its coming together good for designing it all alone. i want to find someone that will do anysort of flash for cheep  so i can show off my photographs cleaner then what i have them now.i dont want the whole site in flash just the photo galleries i tried puting one together myself but i just dont have the time to do it.


I will like more people to know about my work i love sharing it also i dont get that many comments on my work which i would love to. to see what people reactions to my work are and what things i should work on in my photos.so if anyone can help me help with that it would be nice.

so im looking into geting a Hasselblad with my tax return of course i will only beable to afford the body and proply a lens which means that ill have to spend one of my pay checks to get the film back. then later on in the future i might even beable to afford the digital back. I came across this camera from my friend john which im glad i did he also gave me two sites that sell used ones so i will not have to pay a forture for one which is was im looking for. also tryed 35mm with my holga last week it come out nice no light leaks so i think i did good with all the mauifacations.

I have been looking around others gallaries alot most of them i see the same thing. they seem to come off a little corny and unorignal but i have found a few that i have really liked and that are going more towards a diffrent route but i mean this is only my opionion and the style of photography i like to look at.

Also i would like to be come more active on deviant art and feature more artist. i have much time on my hands and the internet is geting quite boring and i dont like tv.

i finely got myself a medium format camera other then my holga that i cant afford right now to get the three rolls of film i have used developed. Now i have a argus 75 yes i do understand it takes 620 film or you can respool the 120 on to the 620's but im just not that skilled to read instrutions on how to do so. i did find a website that does take the 120 spool and drills it to match the 620's design its about 7 bucks a roll. Im quite excited to try something new .I have been waiting for 2 years to try medium format. the argus 75 is nothing big but for just starting out i think it would work wonderful tell i can get more knowledge then ill just buy a better one when i cant get the money around.
i have been listening to alot of sigur ros and clinic recently and i can see it effecting my work quite a bit im not complaning i love what i have been doing this week the ideas are not bad at all. I even have more ideas running in my head sadly i dont have people for these ideas so the ideas are just laying to rest in my head for now but they are really starting to bother me because im really looking forward to puting them in photograph form to see with my own eyes what they look like.

here are some features:

unsaleble.com is selling twin packs of the new polaroid sx-70 blend film this is fantastic news it is simi like that time zero film but with a little bit of diffrence in color i believe the new film is better in color infact.

i find something random and boom im out of my rut for awhile

i need to go out more looking for things or finding people with cool things they dont use
it has come to my attation that i have photos block not suree what its really called but i have it for the first time ever i have it feels sort of weird i uselly stop taking photos durning the winter because that is my hold period where i shelter myself in to get ready for better days.but this is drink is fall i love fall all the colors but i have nothing to make of it all. im over well with things at the moment that is going on in my life from feeling alone, and then feeling fusterated with myself because i have seem to forget what taking a year off what i sould be doing that im not doing i need to start filling out college apps more and figure out how im going to be myself driving. then there are other personal things that i just cant seem to get off my mind at the moment that as created more confustion in my life.

hopefully i get out of this rut so i can start taking the photographs i love to take.
ill be in chicago twice this month
first on the 10 to shot photos of the emptys while they are in the recording studio
monday 11 just to chillin and hang out with anyone i know in chicago ill manlly be by the colleges sence the person im staying with brittnay moffitt is going to school at columbia.

i got accepted to brooks insititue of art 1 one in the U.S but i chose to go to hallmark instead is there something wrong with me really. i dont know here are the reasons i chosed it

1.hallmark is only 10 months long
2.its only 40'000 when brooks would be around 30'000 for each year for 3 to 4 years.
4.i get to start a career faster

why brooks is good
1.number one in the U.S
2.i get a degree



i dont know if i made the right chose but i will find out when i finsh i guess. thats life
