Music-related

I’m a musician.  I write, perform, and record music, as well as compose for the concert hall.  I’m not really sure I had much to say, I just wanted to put this picture out there, because the new semester is here and I haven’t had much time for writing or scanning pictures (or taking pictures for that matter).  It’s from last semester’s photography class, taken with my trusty Minolta SRT-MCII.

Well, back to the aural world now…

50mm f/4 1/250 Kodak Tri-X 400

This was taken early last semester for a photography course I took at UCCS.  For most of the semester I was using a Minolta SRT MC-II that I picked up at Goodwill.  I used the Minolta 50mm 1.4 lens that my friends had given me with their camera and that combination served me well for the entire semester, though towards the end I started adding other cameras on top of that one.  I’ll gush more about that camera later I’m sure.  $8.00 camera, free lens, $5.00 roll of film.  I’m really proud of this shot.
