Oh look, another storm post


Thursday there was a random storm at about 8:30 right when I was about to leave the studio and head home. I was so tired and I really wanted to get to bed and try¬†to catch up on some sleep before my performance exam the next day, but the weather had other plans. It started pouring down rain just as I was about to walk out the doors, so I ended up staying for about 45 minutes waiting for the rain to stop. As soon as it let up I threw everything in the car and tried to leave, but as I drove by the big parking lot at the front of the school this caught my eye, and I of course had to stop and shoot. It was so cool watching the mist build up and die down every few seconds and then see the little bit of sunlight die down behind the storm clouds in the background. Finding the time to shoot for myself was really difficult this week because of the numerous assignments that were due, and I of course procrastinated and was stressing over getting them submitted on time and trying to make them look like I didn’t wait until the last minute. I’m glad I took that 20 minutes to shoot for myself because it took a little bit of the stress of this past week away.




Light Assignment

“I declare, have you seen the light?” -Jerry Garcia

I was given an assignment to start a blog for my digital imaging class, and at first I thought this was going to be an easy assignment but I quickly learned that I really don’t know the first thing about blogging. Firstly, I really don’t like talking about myself, I just want to show you what I’m doing in school and leave it at that. As I’ve made my way through my first year at the¬†photography program at Randolph Community College I have quickly learned that getting out of my comfort zone is the best thing I can do for myself and my photography to create better images, so I know that I will soon learn to love blogging whether I like it or not (which I know I eventually will).

The photo above was for a light assignment for my design class, and is one of my favorite photos I took last semester. I have a whole new appreciation for light since starting this program and I only hope to continue to grow and learn not only as a photographer but as person as well throughout this incredible program. I am so excited to continue my education at RCC and share my progress with everyone.
