blues, reds, & greens: a photographic exercise

zippers and blue

Today marks my 9th day of class so far, and I’m finally readjusting myself to the school life. After being on co-op and working for a whole semester, I’ve been having difficulty with a few basic schooling concepts:

  • once I’m home from class, I have to do more work?
  • I am steadily losing money, rather than making money?
  • I have to do work on the weekends, too?
  • I’m supposed to remember how to take a derivative? or an integral? or do any other basic calculus?

But rather than bore you with details of my engineering coursework, I’d prefer to share some in-progress shots from my first color digital photography assignment.

It’s the first photography class I’ve taken without a darkroom: I’ve got instant results, and Photoshop to play with.

It’s certainly easier than working in the darkroom, and significantly less time-consuming. But I can’t say I like it better. The darkroom is just such a wonderful place!

For our first assignment, we have to shoot three pictures: one in which the main item is blue, one in which the main item is red, and one in which the main item is green.

I’m not having any difficulty with the blues here at Case. But the greens are another challenge!

Next week I have to turn in one print using each color… can you help me choose between the blues?

purchased: the perfect planner

For me, finding the perfect planner is always my biggest back-to-school challenge! I need it to be decently pretty on the outside, but the inside, especially, must have good pages so that I can write down everything I have to do. But when I found this orange-and-white beauty, I knew I was set.

daily routine: blog reading

blog reading (day 28 of the 30 day photo challenge: daily routine)

Although it pains me to admit it, one of my favorite daily routines is catching up with all my favorite blogs. I like to think that it keeps me inspired and will make me a better blogger… but it’s also procrastination. This is definitely a habit that I must avoid once school starts!

First day of classes is tomorrow and I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve been at school! I’m not looking forward to working so hard… wish me luck!
