Strolling through downtown Long Beach looking for good food and ice cream. 
Here I captured a thoughtful moment when I asked him to turn back. He said to me, “You better hurry up before we get jumped.” I find comfort in these places although they are grimy, I look for personality and history in a location. Further up the street I thought about our scouting assignment, hoping I can bring someone back to shoot for then.

By Kathryna HancockThis is brave! I wonder how she got him to look up. Was she jay-walking in front of this patrol car and signaled him for a photo? Is that someone in the back? What had this officer gone through before this shot? His face explains the photo was the brighter part of whatever that had been.
She gave him humanity, a trait not often associated with authorities and I love that. Her photography’s style is nostalgic and she does it again here with the filmy look.

While looking into white backdrop inspiration. I love it when there is good use of shadows.

All three of us are getting used to the new place. But she and I just hang out and roll around together in the peaceful silence of the new space on the street that sometimes whispers.

Assignment 3 - Environmental Portrait

Quintana Davis

At night pool, behind the scenes photographer of a music video for an artist. It was an experience to talk to this model and the fellow models there that night. We talked about what they do, where they are from, dancing in rap music videos often, stopping for a candid from time to time.
