Another late night at work,. But I did get to come home and have a Skype date with my boyfriend.
I’m hoping to get to some self-portrait ideas this weekend, so exciting things are to come luckily.
Today was absolutely awful. Pretty much everything that could go wrong, in terms of getting things set for my senior show, went wrong. First, I had to pay $300 to get my photo printed. After dishing out more money than I currently have to my name, we realized that my print was too big to fit in my car or Elliot’s truck (yes, it is huge.) and so we had to figure out how to get the stupid thing to the gallery. Luckily Elliot’s boss was kind enough to let us use his car to transport it. Once getting it t the gallery we notice that it was very very bowed (it was printed on foam core board), which prevented me from being able to hang it how I originally planned (with it just resting on push pins). Then, 3 more attempts to hang it failed, after numerous trips to and from the gallery. So I am completely clueless as to how I can get this thing to hang from the wall and not look ridiculous, which was supposed to be done by 5:00pm since our show opens tomorrow. I am exhausted, stressed, frustrated, and annoyed, and I still have to deal with it in the morning.
Needless to say I did not want to take a picture. Elliot is working late tonight because they are way backed up, and I knew that if I stayed at home I would just sit in my bed and watch a movie, and not get work done. So he let me come in to work with him so that I actually would get stuff done.
I hope you all had a better Sunday than I did.
This was a weekend full of firsts for me: first product shoot, first time in Bowling Green, KY, first engagement shoot, first time staying in a hotel alone, and first time sleeping in a king sized bed. It was crazy.
On Friday I shot some silk scarves and a shirt that are made by a woman here in KY. I wont be able to post the pictures from the product shoot because they were on Andrew Kung’s (the photographer I have done the Churchill shoots with, and am interning with this fall) camera. However, it was such a great learning experience, and I was pretty happy with the pictures I took (we will see how she liked them soon).
On Saturday I drove to Bowling Green with Drew, and shot my first engagement shoot with him. I will be posting those pictures soon. Drew got me a hotel room there, and I had a king sized bed all to my self. It was both awesome and crazy. I still slept curled up in a tiny little ball despite all the room in the bed, I was entertained by it, and felt kind of silly. When I was getting ready for bed I noticed how wonderful my white computer looked on the white sheets with the yellow cast from the only light on, and so I took this picture.
I have some more extremely big news tomorrow, but I want to post the picture with the news, and I need to get a few things worked out before then.
I went to visit Elliot at work today. He works at a place called Laptop Exchange, that buys, sells, trades, and repairs laptops. They have cups of all sorts of screws sitting around and I have always thought that they look cool, so today I decided to use it for my 365.
I changed my camera to JPG instead of Raw to take pictures of studio projects and forgot to change it back, so although you all may not be able to notice it, it is driving me crazy.
My computer is basically part of my body. I couldn’t even go a day without it I don’t think. I had it sitting on my kitchen counter as I made dinner, and the light was hitting it just right, and I knew it had to be my shot for the day. Plus with school starting tomorrow, it will be getting even more use (if that is possible).
