A sister’s dedication

For anyone who knows me knows I use my younger sister as my model for a lot of my projects. Shes been doing this for me for years and has become pretty darn good at it. She is almost always willing to help me with a project. While we were down town in Winston Salem…

Portfolio struggles…

No surprise here…but I have REALLY been struggling to nail down one idea and direction for my portfolio this semester. And guess what? ITS DUE FRIDAY. Its alright, I’ll manage. I just envy the individuals who stay on one path the entire way and know EXACTLY what they want to shoot and precisely what vibe…

GQ

I have been really struggling to nail down what exactly my commercial portfolio is supposed to be this semester. Now we’re down to the final two weeks and I still feel lost as ever. I enjoy more fashion based work, and is originally what I wanted my ten image portfolio to consist of. I chose…

Side gigs

Although I am a commercial student and enjoy doing the majority of my work in studio, I do manage to squeeze in a side gig or two here and there that are out of my school concentration. It is definitely not my specialty but it can be fun. Here are a couple of my favorite…

Pretty in pink

So in commercial Dhanraj really pushes us to find our style and commonality in the work we do. Im STILL struggling with this.

The Pen Tool

This week in class we learned how to use the pen tool in Photoshop. To say the least, I had fun using it. Here are a couple of images I used the pen tool on. It will come in handy while working on my portfolio pieces because I am shooting moving fabric and can cut…

Ice cream solves all problems

In the commercial concentration, we have client assignments every week. This past week our assignment was dairy. Dhanraj has us really trying to find our style in photography. We did an exercise of finding photos we wish we had taken, and as a class reviewed and found the similarities in each photo. One of mine…

Monday assignments

Like most people, I’m not a fan of Mondays, but this semester Mondays haven’t been too bad since we all are together for our PHO 241 class. We had an assignment to take photos of one of our fellow classmates for them to edit later on. It allowed for me to hang out with the…

The importance of personal projects

I cannot stress it enough how important it is for myself as a photographer to make time for projects I want to work on. Being photography students we are constantly being given assignment after assignment, most aren’t what we’d like to shoot or even enjoy. I don’t know about you guys, but I get burnt…
