Imogen Cunningham, a photographic artist.
Imogen Cunningham, a photographic artist who rose to conspicuousness in the mid twentieth century, was confronted with the test of setting up herself in a generally male-ruled industry. "I used to say that Imogen's blood was three percent acidic corrosive. She appeared to have a corrosive response to so numerous things, and she could be unexpected," Ansel Adams once said about her.

In 2019, I wrote, produced, co-directed, shot some pictures and displayed my first photo-art album at two art exhibitions; one that I organized and another that I got to be a part of with other black artists. The photo album entitled "I AM" explored mental health journey stories. The idea of this project was to create awareness on mental health and also to share my mental health journey through photography. I can not show the processes of some of the images without giving you a background information on the why of the project. One of the things that I was so sure of this project was that in every process whether it being writing this project, or directing or capturing or editing I wanted to include a piece of myself in it. I let myself just be whatever it needed to be to make this happen.
Sadness through the pandemic
As an amateur photographer I’m still learning a lot about my Nikon camera, lighting, and editing. Quite frankly, I feel more comfortable capturing moments in my phone than in my professional camera. Originally, I was going to breakdown the process of a fashion photo I took of a good friend of mine. I used my Nikon D600, had a rustic background and quite frankly my friend looked like a Calvin Klein ad. However, as I was selecting the pictures, I scrolled to one I took a few weeks ago that really made an impact on me. Just like any artist, a photographer needs inspiration to capture moments in time and make them beautiful. Although I try to do this with my camera, sometimes my phone traps moments that are breathtaking.
Bringing Artistry to Photography
As a professional photographer of 35 years, I have spent plenty of time in a darkroom watching the magic of seeing an image come up as I would take a sheet of photo sensitive paper, expose it to light in an enlarger, then move that sheet through various chemical steps in the developing process. As always, things change. Mid-career, thousands of images later, the digital age leapt forward; so I packed up my darkroom equipment for storage. Instead of hours in the darkroom, I spent my time learning some of the premiere photo programs like Photoshop and Lightroom, which I now currently use to produce my final photos. The digital age was necessary for many reasons; including eliminating the toxicity of chemicals in photo processing, making way for faster work turn-around times, and simply giving more people access to learning photography.
Documenting The Dawn: A Photo Journal
It was 6am. I had already been awake for two hours when I looked out the window and saw that the moon was rising just ahead of the sun. I grabbed my coat and headed out the door, still wearing my pajamas.
Real Genuine Fake
I've been a closet photographer for a decade I think, now finally stretching my wings and thinking actually, these are good. I want the world to see.
The Process of Processing
"Ha-HA!" I exclaimed as I slammed the newspaper down on his desk. The ageless man sitting there barely looked up. He was deeply engrossed in pouring over what looked like blueprints for some elaborate maze.
How to Shoot Fashion Content for Instagram
Living in a city such as Manchester, I'm no stranger to shooting with fashion influencers. Shooting with fashion bloggers, influencers and content creators can be a great source of income as a photographer, and, generally speaking, it's a brilliant way of creating a regular and consistent source of income as a freelance photographer.
Lean Into It!
Digital entertainment has redefined the way we view the cycles of our favorite aesthetics and designs. As culture and entertainment accelerates, we’re left in a constant, frantic frenzy of style invention, aesthetic perversion, and entertainment subversion. This is why when I edit a photo, I edit for the surreal.
An Amateur's Experience with the Art of Photography.
My love of photography took off when my husband was in the military. My camera had died on me at my husband’s AIT graduation, so I went a bit without a camera, and that is when I realized how much I missed taking pictures. After we settled in at my husband’s duty station, he surprised me with a new camera! I still have it to this day. Admittedly, about eight years later, I use my iPhone more now than my Canon Rebel. The phone takes great photos, which is one of the reasons I love my iPhone so much. There are also some neat effects, for instance, time-lapse, slo-mo, pano (panorama), portrait (fades out the background and focuses on the selected subject). I like my iPhone for taking pictures because the portrait feature has different lighting effects to choose from, for example, stage light, studio light, and contour light. I have about a thousand pictures on my iPhone and about five thousand more on backup drives.
