I just dropped of one roll of film from yesterday. I just want to take a moment and thank all of my friends. Yesterday was one of my most favorite days ever, and it would have been nothing without these guys. I really doubt my photos will be anything fantastic or great, but while I’m waiting for them to be processed I wanted to take the time to thank all of them for being so great.

So, shout out to Jake and Jake. You two are my best friends and even if I tried, I don’t think I could dream up better people to be friends with. Last night’s classy bar experience was my favorite thing in the work, and I love you guys. Shout out to Emma for being the coolest member of Pride, and for always being down for an adventure. Shout out to Chynna and Emily, but mostly Chynna. It was great to spend the day with you guys, even if Emily can be really mean when she’s day-drunk. Lastly, shout out to iiriidescent for being super cool. We didn’t get to hang out for very long, but I hope we can again sometime. I hope you had a great first night at your job yo.

I’ll have to finish the other roll of film I shot from yesterday before I can get it processed. It has all the amazing photos from the classy-as-shit-speakeasy we went to last night and it was 100% my most favorite night I’ve had in a long time.

I love you guys. You’re all fantastic. I mean it.

Anonymous asked:

Do you think you could post a higher quality version of the picture of the tree branches so I could have it as a background? The picture was posted directly below the pictures of Emily in her hat.. Please and thank you!

Sure thing, here you go!
Below is a like to a 3200 x 2133px high rez export of that image. That should be good for most monitors, unless you’re already rocking a 4K display, in which case, well, I’m incredibly jealous.

Guys

I’m going to Knoxville to spend like the whole day there tomorrow.

Should I shoot mostly film or should I shoot with the 10D?

I think this was the best day I ever had at Norris Dam

I recommend watching old Bond movies while drunk and writing into the small hours of the morning on Lunar Eclipse nights.

Nabbed this shot of olfinnigan today

Karen, shot by me.

Huemanity was a passion project, a project I started without knowing if anyone would ever see it. I was content with knowing that I had the chance to make some great images, and that I had taken those chances.

But while I was editing two years of shooting for a project down to ten images, I realized that this project, by nature, was much bigger than I. It’s about humanity, and how ambiguous or sad or happy or caring or loving people can be, but how they are always beautiful. And the reaction I recieved, and the attention this project got backs up those facts. You all are great. Anyone who saw my project, well, you mean the world to me. Those of you who left a note in some way on my blog, a giant huge thanks to you. And a huge thanks to all my followers who didn’t get mad at me for reblogging several times. <3’s

I would, like to thank a few people publically, though.

First of all Jennifer (youshouldsmilesometime) for giving me a great amount of encouragement over the past week or so. She’s an art student, so when she takes interest in my projects, I get really, really excited. And a second huge thanks to Jen for helping me with getting it into galleries. THERE WILL BE CHEESE CUBES.

I’d like to thank Andrew. Andrew and I are friends and colleagues, and have worked together on a number of projects, but we recently created the site Preset Love. He gave me some amazing constructive criticism and presentation ideas that really made Huemanity what it is today. He’s my best friend, and I couldn’t have done this project without his help along the way.

I’d like to thank everyone who reblogged this project. The idea that you saw this, and wanted others to see it means so much to me, and I thank you so much for that. Words can’t tell you how much this has all meant to me.

Finally, I’d like to thank anyone who has sent me a message leading up to this, who said they were interested or excited. You really helped push me to publish this project. The two I’d like to personally thank are my friend eppyanne and x-filesposter. Your warm messages mean a ton to me, so thank you, thank you.

So shouts outs to everyone. It’s your efforts that have made my humble project what it is. As the next few months go on, I may have news about Huemanity, as I try to get it up in some galleries, be on the lookout for that.

I’ll be adding this project to my navigation bar, and I probably wont be reblogging it any more. Again, thanks to everyone who had a part in it, even if you think your part in it was small it was a HUGE help to me <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s <3’s
