This is officially Take #2 on blog time. I have all sorts of fun knick-knacks to share with the world, so get ready, ohmmygolly 2.0 is in effect!
Photos are fun, right? Last August, I would have punched you in the face for saying those words. As a new BFA student, photography sort of took over my life…in a really bad way. My brain was like an over-analyzer on crack. I couldn’t even take a photo of a puppy without internally asking myself “Why? What is this image saying? How can I link this to a global issue?” Oh puh-lease! It’s a cute, fuzzy puppy. Why can’t it just be that?
OH WAIT! It can. : ) Problem solved, tension relieved, brain happier. So, 6 months later, I totally photographed that pooch, and it was great.
Moral of the story, I am trying really hard this year to NOT try really hard, and so far, its been a creative gold mine. Sketch-book full, critiques productive, artist fulfilled. : )
And…fulfilled artists have fun! So yesterday, Desira and I played in the mud and shot off a few hundred frames, just because we could! Check it.
The whole time we were shooting, I felt like I was on the set of Troll Hunter…this crazy Norwegian, Blair Witch style, mockumentary. It was super. 🙂
