Well, this week has been off to a slow start. I’ve officially started my last semester in school, which is bittersweet. I’m so excited to be done, and even though I’ll only have an Associate degree, I’m happy with that. I’m also really going to miss taking classes, since, let’s be real, someone without a job, and only working with crafty things and a slowly developing photography business (no pun intended….kinda) does not have the money for a 4-year university. So my options are limited, but I’m still looking in to things, hopeful that I’ll be able to continue classes soon!
So I get to work on a mirrored image this week, and I want to do something a little out of the ordinary. Not quite sure what that is yet, but I’m working on it. I keep thinking of doing a reflection of a person, where one image has the opposite expression as the reflection, but I’m pretty sure that ideas like that have been well overdone. Maybe I’ll do something along the lines of the image below, using water or drops in a way to play off of a reflection or catch a reflection. I love how I caught this image; just as it was starting to rain and I was hanging out talking with a friend, I just stuck my hand out the window when I noticed the drops on the mirror, and there you have it. It almost looks like the drops are falling into the palm of my hand — love the result!
Business wise, I have to organize my contacts, and still (sort of) play catch up from previous weeks. Well, I suppose you could count this week’s task as done, since my list of contacts is non-existent, but perhaps I’ll be proactive in searching for vendors and contacts which I would like to use in the future. And, as a progress report, I did reach out to a few vendors last week about showing my work in their shops, as well as for some juried art shows. Wish me luck! I’m hoping to hear something back soon!
