With only two weeks left (within typing up this blog), I feel I have so much to do still. In my photography class, we have a list of concepts we are supposed to have by the end of the semester. Although I have a total of 10 photos, 4 of them are still lives, 4 are portraits, and 2 are architecture. I still need to complete landscapes and industrial, plus I would like to do at least 2 more architecture photos.
As many of you know, if you have been following my journey, film photography is a very timely process. So I fear I will not be able to get everything accomplished by our final class. I wanted to get stuff done during Thanksgiving break, but then we got hit with our first snow storm, so I am hoping the weather will be nice to me between now and the end of the semester.
I did get time on Tuesday afternoon to try to get some more photos done. I took a landscape shot of my aunt’s swamp in her backyard. I also returned to campus around 6pm to get a photo of the arch lit up,. However there are still many classes at 6pm, so I am not sure if the photo came out well due to cars passing by.
On a brighter note, on Tuesday I took a photo using an 8×10 piece of film. I am so excited to see the results. The experience was the same as my other view cameras, but the size was a change and definitely exciting to me. I took a photo of my classmate Brianna again, but this time I tried focusing on a more dramatic lighting than my past photos. (Of course my phone’s camera did not due much justice to what I was photographing.)
