Photo 2: Hard at Work

We are working hard to further develop our personal vision projects.  Last week we wrote the first draft of our artists’ statements.  We wrote our statements to help us further understand our work and how our projects connect.  The statements give a verbal description of how our projects are going to look during our final presentations.

“I made two prints today.  I feel successful because Betzy assisted me as I worked on split filtering my print.”

“It was frustrating this week because I had to keep working on the same print over and over.  I am still in the process of working on my final print.”

“I had a hard time with my final print because the framing kept coming out wrong with my easel.  I also struggled with focusing the image in the darkroom.”

“Over the weekend I had a shoot in my house with half of my friends due to the weather.  I decided to switch my idea/concept of the shoot.  I switched from album covers to indirect sisters.  The idea was better to me and I felt more passionate about it.  I know the shots came out well, but I did have a hard time remembering basic photography skills.  Even though I have taken photography for three years, its still fresh and new to me.  I know as a photographer, I need to know my trade and I should by now.  If I did, I believe my shots/photos would have come out better technically.  I saw and realized this after I processed my film and saw the film was underexposed.  I should really know my craft.  I’m going to study for myself and know from now on what I am doing.”
