The Seven Deadly Sins
August 2014

This is my version of the seven deadly sins: Gula, Acedia, Luxuria, Avaritia, Invidia, Ira, and Superbia. Although the theme is nothing new, I’ve never really seen the sins depicted in black and white before; the ones I’ve seen always seem to have a color associated to help distinguish the sin. So I thought it’d be more challenging and fun to go black and white, and rely more on my friend’s ability to express emotions as a model and my ability to capture them as a photographer.

I made a box! Or I should say, I painted/drew on a box, and now it’s a fox box! :3

This box is 4.25” across in diameter and 3” tall in height. It has a hinge and small inconspicuous magnet to keep it closed. I used acrylic paint, colored pencils, markers, pens, and graphite. The piece is hand-signed on the inner rim.

It’s currently for sale in my Etsy store. ^__^

Moments of Hyperopia
June 2014

© Sophia Adalaine Zhou

Hyperopia, otherwise known as farsightedness, is a vision condition where distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close ones do not come into proper focus. It occurs when the eyeball is too short or the cornea is not curved enough, causing light entering the eye to not focus properly. A common sign of hyperopia includes difficulty in concentrating and maintaining a clear focus on near objects.

Occasionally, I find myself so focused on seeing the broad perspective of things, searching for meaning and “the truth” in life that lies somewhere in an unknown distanced future, that I forget to remember what’s near and now, losing sight of the present and the presence of living.

I got to photograph my first wedding! It was last month on June 28th for my beautiful friend Claire and her new awesome husband Steve! It unfortunately rained that day just as the ceremony was about to begin and I was scared I wouldn’t get good shots because of it, but it was happily still a lovely wedding and I feel good about the photos I made, especially since the bride told me that she, the groom, and all their families are so happy with my work! I’m so glad to be part of their happy day; I had so much fun! :D
