I decided at the end of 2014 that in 2015 I would get over my shyness and work with other people. With support from some amazing people I was able to make that happen. I went to two cons and took pictures of strangers at each, and I did several collaborative shoots with other photographers. To celebrate 2015, here is a photo collage!
Mostly making up for the sins of episodes one, two, and three, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a tribute to the galaxy far far away that we grew up in. It never once insults your intelligence. I spent every second of the experience either cheering, laughing, or tearing up. Abrams identified what we loved about episodes four, five and six, condensed it into one movie and injected it straight into our hearts, with one mighty light saber thrust.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the movie we deserve. I am in love with Star Wars again.
Sometimes I like to go back and post some old scans. I miss diving and underwater photography. I miss LAN parties, back before the Internet split us all apart. I miss football and hockey. I miss living in Alaska. I miss doing special makeup effects.
