I have not posted in a while! So here are some updates:
I have added a "Personal" section to my website with a project I am currently working on. I feel as though I see differently when shooting with my polaroid camera, so over the summer I started shooting with it a lot more. In past blog posts I have talked about this project, but in a nutshell, I feel more free and loose when shooting film. I am not over-analyzing every step of the way, which is what I do when I shoot with a DSLR.
I am currently taking a retouching class and I LOVE it. I am learning so many neat tips and tricks about Photoshop I never knew existed.
I am experimenting more in my Light Control class with light, which is something that has been intimidating for a long time, but I feel like I am getting better at it.
My editorial class is super busy. The class is surrounded by making Positive Negative, an editorial magazine where the class is half photographers, half graphic designers. We shoot it, they design the layouts. I am one of three production editors. We are in charge of making sure everyone submits their files, names them correctly, and uploads them in the right format. We also help pull together the actual making of the magazine, such as figuring out the cost of different papers and everything that goes into printing it. It is a lot of work, but I am typically an organized person, so I like making sure everyone else is on top of their things as well.
My business class is meant for photographers, and I am amazed at some of the information I am learning in it. I knew nothing about pursuing a business as a photographer. Now I know a lot more about copyright, licensing, and so much more.
I am starting a new personal project of mine this weekend. I want to do a lot more fashion work for my portfolio, and I do not want to feel constrained by assignments, so I am making time to go shoot for myself. It's hard to find time, and I have had this in mind for a while. But I am excited to start it this weekend.
I am going to try and post more blog posts, so keep checking back as I will be uploading more work soon!
