Sorry about not updating for a few days. Usually the first week of school is hectic and I just didn’t have the time. Anyway, classes seem like they’ll be fine. Personal Vision II and Fashion seem like they’re going to be A LOT of work, especially PV2. My “personal vision” if you will, this semester is to heavily digitally manipulate some fashion-ish pictures. I know that doesn’t really sound like a “vision” but you’d have to see it in my head to understand. Right now there’s a big “anti-fashion” movement that’s rebelling against the while 80’s revival. I hated the 80’s so I’m more of less with the other camp. My basic plan is to shoot fashion and anti-fashion at the same time, digitally alter both and turn the more fashion-like images in for Fashion class assignments and the others for Personal Vision. This segways nicely into my History of Media class since we’re going to be talking about digitally manipulated prints as an art form. This is going to be a very weird class. It’s basically all about web art (those weird flash websites that no one understands) and video installations (don’t even get me started). What’s kind of interesting is that at some point we’re supposed to talk about “hacker culture” and the use of programming as art. Basically its computer art for geeks, I’m kind of excited.
I already have my first assignment and I’m actually leaving to go shoot now, I’m shooting Lauren’s friend Nichole in front of Burgen. I’ve also been trying my best to eat better and run on a daily basis. I know that college isn’t exactly the typical place to get off the “pizza and soda” diet but I think it’s important. I’m also going to get a haircut and finish the damn webpage I started. There’s also the small matter of finding a job, sending off portfolios, securing a future, all that great stuff. The two photo classes I mentioned before will keep me busy on a pretty constant basis and when I’m not thinking about class I’ll be thinking about the rest of my life. This is going to be one stressful semester I can tell you that much.
Well, I’m off. Oh, and sorry about the lack of updates, it might be a reoccurring theme until I get some sort of schedule worked out for myself. Later.
