Sorry it’s been a while, but I’ve been very busy. So here are some updates:
This is my last week interning with Clear Channel Asheville. I learned a lot, made great connections, and even managed to leave with an audition reel. I’ve also freshened up my skills in XHTML and CSS coding within Adobe Dreamweaver.
My photography skills have increased dramatically this semester, photos to appear soon! My lighting techniques still need work, but I am ten times better than I was in January.
My acting final seems to be going well, despite a battle with two GI viruses back to back. Present preliminary to professor tomorrow, he sees it again the day of finals. Which are next week! I can’t believe this semester has literally flown by!
Monday, I take the GRE, which I only started studying for yesterday! Many thanks to Olivia Bellamy for giving me her prep book!
My other two classes are going well, and Wind Song will finish strong with a final episode of season one on Sunday, May 6. Hopefully this fall, it will return for season two with Stefani at it’s head and a new co-host by her side.
I am taking a digital photography class. Up till now, I’ve always done black and white film photography with a Minolta XG-1. So this was my fourth digital photo shoot. This semester, I decided to focus on portrait/studio photography. These are the most recent. I am using a Canon T3i in my university’s studio. I finally have the hang of the softboxes and backdrops, and I know what I’m doing with the camera (mostly). I’m looking for something specific, but I don’t know how to get at it just yet.
So Monday, February 13th a friend of mine let me take studio portraits of her for my digital photography class. We basically talked about Dr. Who and other sci-fi pop culture references. As we spoke, she moved in a relatively still space, and I took my shots. A lot of technical difficulties on my part, but here are a few that turned out well. Rae is a good friend to me. She is a source of information and creativity for me. You can learn more about her in a feature story I wrote for the Western Carolinian.
My professor liked some more than others. Can you guess which were successful, or not, and why?
