Three more weeks…

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving.  I went back to school on Monday but only have, after today, two more weeks.  I must admit I am very ready for a three-week break.  Photography may seem easy but is very exhausting.  I always get comments from people like “Photography seems so fun” and “I wish I could have had a college major as fun as photography.”  True, photography can be fun, but most people do not realize the hard work involved to make a truly successful photograph.  A snapshot will not make money in reality.  But, all the hard work pays off when people react positively to your work.  Okay, enough of me talking.  I will end this post with two images and a quote.  I just finished a presentation on Uta Barth and Pete Turner for my Color for Digital Media class.  So, I would like to share an image from each of those photographers with you.

The first Image is by Uta Barth.  Her abstract photography offers a unique point-of-view on scenes that aren’t so out of the ordinary.  The second image is by Pete Turner.  He uses color as a subject.  His photos portray a world of bold color that makes one feel so energized.  How could we ever complain about a boring life when we live in such a colorful world? (Granted he does use digital manipulation to achieve such a colorful look on most of his images.)

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.  – Walt Disney
