I can't wait for school to start...it starts up on Wednesday the 9th, and I'll be a senior, which is surreal and awesome and a little intimidating.
At any rate, it's been a crazy hectic week. I've been working a lot recently at the theatre; everyone else decided to go on vacation, but I got that out of the way the week prior, so now I'm back and available to work...it's a lot of fun, and not even that much hard work. As a photographer, I'm oddly fascinated with the theatrical lights we use and have so so many of up in the catwalk. I'll have to post scraps or something. It's insane. I'd love to be able to make some kind of crazy huge lens out of one. A guy can dream.
All of my recent pictures have been (somewhat chronologically) from my vacation in South Carolina. That was nice and relaxing. I read on the beach, I took pictures, I took videos, I visited some cool tourist destinations. Thanks to everyone who has favorited my works - I'm so glad you like them! And as always, thanks a ton to all my watchers. You're awesome.
For a long time now, I've been trying to get my photography displayed at a local coffee house or something of the sort. There's one I frequent at which photography is displayed; just yesterday I talked for about 45 minutes with the person who co-ordinates all that. He is the head of a local camera club I knew nothing about. While I have no intention of joining (as it would conflict majorly with school), I was thrilled when he informed me that my work is comparable, if not better, than some of the work the professionals there are turning out. I'd never received critique from a professional before - that meant a lot.
I'll definitely keep an update on this exhibit, when, where, how much, etc. I'm gonna be printing my 12x18s at Costco for $3 apiece - I know that much.
The title of this journal reflects my recent boredom with summer. Yeah, it flew by...June was China, July was two weeks of sitting in my room doing nothing (fun ) and visiting colleges and going to OC and the Poconos, and August was a lot of relaxing, being bored, fixing computers, and going to SC. But I'm ready for a routine now. I need something to keep me sane. I'm looking forward to the school year. I recently got my i-ADHD under control and can't wait to find out how my treatment will affect my grades in school. I am more alert, attentive, awake, energetic, personable, friendly even. It's great. I'm happy.
I enjoy these rambles. Haven't updated the journal in awhile, so why not make it personal?
Thanks to all my watchers, visitors, and fellow photographers and photography appreciators. If you like what you see, watch me, fave my stuff, critique it, comment - anything I'm always looking to become better at what I do, and the community here is good at that.
