September was the last month of summer, but many of my friends had already left for college. I met many new people that month, mainly in Berkeley, and I reconnected with friends who were still in high school or beginning their first year of college. September was a surprisingly good month despite my fear of returning to community college and losing my best friends.
September was also a month in which I had ample time to myself. At the time I had less people around me, which changed the subject of my photography and led to experimentation with light. Sunset and dusk were my favorite times of the day to shoot because the lighting best fit the mood I wanted to capture on film.
