Exciting things are in the making. After graduating college, I have been on a small hiatus in the art world. This past weekend was an excellent time to get back into gear.
Meet Cody and Taylor. Two amazing people who can make me laugh no matter what. Cody and I have been the closest of friends since elementary school. So naturally, I was his first choice in capturing such an exciting and important moment in his life. Getting to photograph Cody and Taylor was an absolute laugh. Silly moments while capturing their love for each other was super fun. I can wait for the big day!
To those who still keep up with my blog, my apologies on the large gaps between posts. It’s been a crazy ride. So, let’s recap the events since my last post.
I interned at ZuCot Gallery. I started and completed my Senior Exhibition. The best thing that happened last semester was I graduated Cum Laude from the University of North Georgia with my Bachelors of Science degree in Art Marketing.
With school being completed, the next step is to keep moving forward. I will continue to gain more knowledge about my craft. I will continue to create new things, whether it be for personal or commercial use. I will go and find the career that I have dreamed about for four years. Most of all, I will just keep moving forward.
Exciting things are happening this semester. First off, I got an amazing internship at ZuCot Gallery. Unbelievably exciting time working at that gallery. I’m learning more than I could ever believe.
Secondly, this semester is the big semester for me. I am in my Senior Portfolio Production class. In other words, I have aimlessly working away on creating my final show of UNG. Above is a glimpse of the ideas that have been running through my head. More to come!
Apologies for being away for awhile. What a semester. Busy with work and artsy things. I can say that I was able to do something that I love very much, photography. This semester, I decided to take a Digital Photography and Time-based Photography class. In other words, I took a beginning digital class (again). I also took a photography class that entailed something I have not tackled before. This class in particular, I worked with stop-motion photography, time-lapse photography, cinemagraphs and a little bit of astrophotography. Pretty exciting stuff right there. I definitely want to experiment more with astrophotography and painting with light. Until then, here’s a small glimpse of what I spent this spring doing.
Today on this gloomy day, I had the privilege of photographing Casha’s (my sister) friend, Nicole, for her graduation announcement. We planned this shoot a little last minute, which meant we had very little time to prepare. However, we still had a blast with the shoot. I’m quite pleased with the results, even if the weather was not on our side. Tell me what you think!
I have exciting news. Actually, two pieces of exciting news!
Last Friday, I, along with many of my fellow classmates, proposed what we are hoping to be completing for our Senior Shows. Spending the last few years, experimenting with new forms of media and so forth, I finally chose a medium that I decided to propose for my Senior Review and Senior Show. Now, I won’t tell you that here. However, I will tell you that I had my proposal accepted! That means in Fall of 2015, I will be going through Senior Exhibition Production for my Senior Show!
Not only that, I have also entered the Hal B Rhodes Student Exhibition show. I was chosen out of 60 entries to participate in this show! Super excited!! Therefore, if you’re in Dahlonega March 26, join me for the reception!
Although this holiday season has a few bumps on the way, I am excited to celebrate Christmas with my family. A little time away from school and a few days off from work to relax and recuperate for the upcoming school semester is definitely needed. So, as one of my favorite holiday movies says, “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal! And a happy new year too!”
