Yes, it has been a while since my last update, but I am back to a calmer and regular schedule now that my spring semester is done. I severely underestimated how busy I would be. I would like to spend the next few updates unpacking much of the work I did in school for all of you, my dear friends and readers, over the last year.
Here are some highlights from my college work:
- I produced and directed 8 short films during the spring semester.
- I took over 2500 photographs for a basic digital photography class in the fall.
- I learned how to develop film and process photos in a dark room for a black and white photography class in the spring semester.
- I was part of the inaugural group of students who worked as Student Ambassadors for the Honors College.
- I finished and defended my Honors Creative Thesis project that was a year in the making.
- My documentary Embracing the Ephemeral and a short testimonial for the Miriam’s Promise adoption agency that I produced/directed for a class were both featured in the annual First Look showcase for student films at Nashville’s gorgeous Belcourt Theater.
This week, I want to share some of the photos that came out of the digital photography class I took last fall. I enjoyed that class a lot, but my professor made everyone work extremely hard. I took at least 200 to 300 photos for every assignment. It was worth it because I learned so much from the experience.
One of the assignments was portraiture. I found a bunch of different people, and they were all gracious enough to let me take their photos for this class. Here are some of the highlights:
I have more to share over the summer including at least a couple of the films I directed.
Also, my blog will be back in full swing next week.
See you every Wednesday for the newest update from me.
