I'm really starting to fall in love with duotones and tritones. I think I posted this picture in color from when I went on vacation, but I really, really, really love this as a tritone.

Fashion Photography Project

I guess I should explain...

Every Wednesday, I have 2 printing classes, and they are basically the same thing.. so that's 8 hours and 40 minutes of..almost..the same class......

And I also have the same teacher..

In the same room...

for almost 9 hours.

WELL, my teacher wasn't expecting that to happen, so he decided that the kids who have him for both classes can do one giant project instead of two separate projects... So I am doing fashion photography... And my amazing friend Hannah is helping me out every week :) THANK YOU.


2am, and I am getting up at 6am (normally, 5:30, BUUUUT..yeeeeeeahno).. . AH. but quick update. Here is a photo from the fashion shoot I was doing with Hannah.

i wrote stuff here

I go back to school on Monday, which means I will not have a life outside of school and work for the next 10 weeks (summer quarter is only 10 weeks instead of 11). The last 3 weeks, I've been sleeping until noon almost every day. I feel like such a bum... but I guess I'm trying to make up for all that sleep that I didn't get last quarter.. Normally for school I get around 4-5 hours a night... well.. I try to.

I guess I haven't updated this in a few days.... Last week, I was going to do an amazing photoshoot with my friend Hannah... Sadly, it was postponed .... because my wireless trigger just all of a sudden decided to not work.. We had all the lights set up, Hannah looked fantastic.. and we found the BEST spot to take the photos...then.. I pressed the shutter button and my strobes wouldn't go off! It was the oddest thing, because the test button work, but it didn't work when I took the picture... I can't tell you how bummed I was.. So then, I packed everything back up.. and we went to Sonic and I got a delicious cherry slushy.  Yum! I did get my new triggers in the mail today, and they work perfectly... So we are doing this photoshoot SOON. I can't wait.

Remember this?

Well, I submitted it for a chance to be in AIP's student show, which I guess also enters me for a chance to win money or something. I dunno.. BUT, the judges picked it and it's going to be displayed in the gallery at the school. YAY! That up there is the old one though, cause I am far too lazy to get my external hard drive and get the one that's actually fixed and not cut so sloppily around the edges :P

Yep, but also... I am a DUMMY and submitted it as an odd size... 14x9... and because of my dumbness, I now have to go pay for a custom frame. I don't know why I didn't make it a 13x9 or something close to that so I could mat it to 11x14... AGH. Oh well... I also might be rush ordering the photograph & have it mounted.. I'm really not sure what I'm doing with this yet, but it's due at the school by July 18, & that doesn't leave me much time to think because if I'm ordering, I have to order NOW. I might just print it & mount it myself... I would like to sell it at some point.

I have one of the same teachers that I had last quarter for both of my classes on Wednesdays. I am curious if he is going to have us do the same thing again and pick whatever project we want to work on for the whole quarter. I am debating whether or not (if I'm allowed) if I should do a project full of composites... That would be extremely time consuming though, and would require me thinking of at least 2 new ideas for composites every week... and that would be really hard on top of my other classes plus work.... because not only would I be taking photographs for that project, but I'd be making completely new images out of different photos merged into one. I'm not sure if I'd be able to keep up with it all, but it's tempting cause I know that would make an amazing project, & I'd be spending a lot of time in Photoshop. I really have decided what I'm doing yet, and I don't even know if we're going to be able to pick what exactly we are doing.. I guess I'll know Wednesday.

I actually wrote this time instead of uploading photographs... Hahah, oh well. I am just too tired tonight, and haven't worked on much recently.
