So a while back, when I was still in photo school, I was lucky enough to do a practicum with a photographer in New York. I was studying photojournalism at the time with a photographer who worked for the NY Times, Reuters, and many other well known outlets- it was amazing! Although I can’t post anything from any of our assignments, I can post some photos I took of New York itself while I was visiting. I was there during NYE and it was quite the experience. I can’t say I lasted the whole evening in Time Square, I think I shuffled through people for a few hours and left by 10pm, but it was cool to say I was there! So I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who is claustrophobic 😉
I am one of the few photographers who actually attended photo school. I think it helped me a lot and was an amazing experience, I wouldn’t be where I am now without it!
For one of my projects I had to create a portrait with writing on the subject in a creative manor. I had a pregnant friend who was wanting some different style maternity photos, so I combined what she wanted with what I needed for my school project, and voila! I managed to project an image on my friend’s body of a typed up journal entry about her pregnancy. Then, I added in some extra lighting to make the photo more interesting, and I was pretty happy about the result 🙂
It’s coming into wedding season! I’m hoping to have some time for more conceptual projects like this one was, but with all the weddings I have coming up it might have to wait until winter. Looking forward to it, whenever it happens 🙂
