As I finish my first year of teaching - I find myself having gained a new appreciation for all of the art forms I enjoy most -- Drawing, Painting, and Photography. Moving forward, I have changed my username to AlyssVisuals - detaching my account from the first username it had, which though it wasn't anything unprofessional or cheesy - it just wasn't me, and isn't really related to my interests. I needed something more related to my name and what I do. I'm a visual artist, so AlyssVisuals was a fitting name. In the coming year, I hope to create more traditional artwork away from just photography (though I'll still take plenty of photograph
I now teach Photography (primarily film process - so using a darkroom) at a high school, as well as drawing.
I purchased a Nikon D5100, 2 lenses: 18-55 & 55-300. LOVE the 55-300.
Will be scanning in and posting film shots ASAP and hopefully posting more digital as well.
*Uploaded some film shots from my early undergrad (from around 2008-2009)
