One of the first things I did after returning from my final trip in college was visit Lulu and create a portfolio book - for my personal use - and a coffee table book for my parents. It makes for a great gift and ensures that you will have tangible keepsakes portraying life’s monumental moments that you can treasure forever.
The camera is not only an extension of the eye, but of the brain. It can see sharper, farther, nearer, slower, faster than the eye … Instead of using the camera only to reproduce objects, I want to use it to make what is invisible to the eye, visible.
