Welcome to Capture an Impression!

Photography is a modern tool that is used to embrace moments in time as well evoke conversation!
Individuals should be given the opportunity to share their own work in addition to sharing the work of their inspirations!
Please feel free to follow this blog and submit captions and photographs to my email. I would love for fellow photographers
to share how they capture an impression. Enjoy!

Brooklyn Bridge

There is nothing better than conquering a fear by distracting yourself with beauty. For the first time, ever, I walked over a bridge; and not just any bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge. Mind you, I am the girl who buries her head between her legs when she crosses any bridge in a car, as the thought of being suspended more than 500 ft over water trumps all other thought. With that said, camera in hand and head up, I embraced the orange sunrise on an architectural marvel historically represents 'my hood.'

Combination Techniques

As my senior year comes to a close I take what is my final- for this phase of education in my life- photography course. Throughout this class our professor has taken it upon herself to really force us to forgo any "usual" photo practices and really look beyond the photographical horizon. From cyanotypes and Van Dyke Browns to enlarging negatives and solvent photo transfers, I have finally come to an idea for my final project. Combining my knowledge in photography, fashion, and these new photo techniques I have decided to create a "Vintage Designer Journal." It will have a 1940's-50's look supported by different fabrics, small images, fashion runway drawings, and magazine tear outs. I am presenting my idea to my professor today and photographing a friend around 11:30! Wish me luck!!

Wedding Photography

My sister was married this past weekend- Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. David Jason Newell. I bring this up to shed a little light on the unique meridians of photography that we often overlook because of their overwhelming presence in the commercial world of "time capturing." We all like to categorize ourselves as young photographers. We catch ourselves trying to pin point the areas in which our strengths lie and the areas in which we hope to someday fit into. For me, it is most recently fashion. With that said however, most of my life I have overlooked the avenue of wedding photography because it is simply not "artsy" enough- I was ignorantly mistaking. Brian, the artist at my sister's wedding, was an incredible photographer. He chose unique angles, innovative locations, and creative organizations of the subject to ensure he was giving more to the bride and groom than just the average wedding portrait. Long story made short, he was incredible and he uses LIGHTROOM! What a smart man! His information is below and if anyone finds themselves looking for such a photographer that goes above and beyond, I highly recommend his work.
