looking at the person behind the lens
As for my classes, I'm pretty happy with them. I have a few teachers who I'm not so sure about (read: they cover material as if there will never be another class period/ they ruffle my feathers a bit), but all of the subjects seem awesome. I'm sure that I'll tell you more about them as the school year progresses. Since it's a Friday though I'll mention my "fun" class, which is a photography one--Digital Imaging. For our first assignment we are going to shoot with film. Yikes! First time since all the disposable cameras of my high school years and the polaroid that my family used for taking very important pictures of children in pajamas. In another photography class that I was trying to get into but ultimately decided against this semester--Black and White--I learned about a woman named Vivian Maier. All of the images that I included today were shot by her. She was not a "professional" photographer; she worked as a nanny. And yet, she shot over 100,000 negatives. Her photography intrigues me as does her life. I want to stare at her pictures and understand the person who thought to take them.
P.S. This is our last year as I have mentioned and will mention a hundred times, and so some of our classes are not so we can graduate, but instead to fill space on our schedule and let us enjoy the rest of our college experience. I took photography. Nick wanted to take a VBA class and Statistical Computing class. What is wrong with that boy? Just kidding, he's great. My great big nerd. Luckily he had to take an arts class to finish his GEs so he gets to play with clay in a ceramics class.
