There are times when people can see my photos and say "Wow, I really like that one!" but then they don't get why I took it! So I think that's something that I need to look out for while turning in my portfolio.
I have many ideas, but I need to be able to put my own character into them without it being extremely weird.
It's not that I'm hurt by the comments of others, I know that I need to accept criticism and not only that. I need to disconnect from my work. Because once it's finished and edited, it should stand alone. But today I turned in my lighting assignment.
Truthfully, I don't think I did my best work on this shoot. I feel like I just did the assignment and didn't really apply it to myself and apply too much of my creativity. But then one of the three photos I turned in was this one...
For all of you who know me on Facebook, which is everyone who would read this blog, I have this set as my profile picture. I think it looks pretty cool. Sure, it's not exactly the image that I wanted from the get go with this shoot but it still looks visually interesting.
However, it was sort of strange for the kids in class. No one said anything mean, no one said anything derogatory, however it was joked that I should put this into the ward directory to introduce myself.
I'm such a weirdy. But I have a lot of other weird photos from the mind where this one came from! So I guess that sometimes I have weird ideas and stuff, but if creativity is what I need to get into the photography program, you can't argue that I don't have it.
