i am the infamous vainsmith or maybe i should just say vain. either way this is who i am. an awkward individual that loves to take self portraits because being in front of the lens and controlling it from behind makes me feel compelled to be creative at all times. i basically just want full credit of what i do at all times.
there was once upon a time when i had no idea how amazing black and white films were. i was very ignorant to the fact that they are actually really amazing but i am happy to have watched a few of them in my time. i intend to really get into them when i find some time. lauren bacall is absolutely everything. i’d travel back in time for her. i’m not sure what i love more her smile, that voice, her beauty or her presence. they all make her unique in my book so i’ll just say she’s amazing & to know that she’s alive in this universe makes me want to find her and let her know how much i appreciate her existence.
these photos of my brother were taken during the summer of ‘13. we had took a stroll through a vacant parking lot near a church and began to shoot.
these are just a few photos of my family from left to right - sister, brother & mother. these are also a few edits that i recently had a chance to work on as the original / edited versions needed a few revisions. time to put my camera to use again.
