Hi all! My name is Kara, and I'm currently a Lighting TD on The Bad Guys. Two years ago, I graduated college from computer science and visual arts departments, having focused on computer graphics theory and graphic design. Before college, I spent creative time focused on photography and oil paint. During quarantine, I've been learning about color theory and optics.
On this page I've included work most closely linked with elements of cinematography. To see a wider range of portfolio work including technical computer graphics work, visit my general portfolio.

digital b&w, long-exposure photo series
site-specific murals documenting ephemeral sunlight patterns
digital studio and natural light portraits of friends
documenting natural environments, often while hiking or backpacking
continual observation and photographic documentation of interesting light encounters including caustics patterns, light shards, and blocking geometry
physical studies learning about color palettes and mixing
algorithmic letterform detection and typeface creation from arbitrary satellite imagery; really little to do with cinematography, but fun to talk about!
