Jessica Art Blog
I wrote in an earlier blog that I had decided to take a photography class.
So far, it's been very rewarding.
I'm learning more about seeing, about looking again at seemingly ordinary objects, about thinking of angles, and, most important for me, about camera control.
Probably the most interesting discussion we've had so far has been about the nature and color of light. Yes, I knew, sort of, that indoor light tended to be yellowish, but I hadn't really stopped to consider the varying tones and shades of outdoor light. I could see it, but now I notice it more and, I hope, will learn to see even more clearly. The better I can see, the better I can show.
Of course, I'm also learning about printers and programs, so in addition to a bad case of camera-envy--I'm pretty well resigned to that, by now--I have a good case of printer-lust. The lab just got some really nice new printers, and oh, I love them!
Are these things necessary to my well-being, or to the well-being of my photography? Of course not. But they are nice.
Well, usually they are. Both printers managed to be unavailable Wednesday (Broken? Out of ink? I never did find out), just when everyone was needing them for midterms.
Didn't cure me, though!
