So what's up with the Creativity block? Well I can't seem to find stuff to do with digital media. I think that by doing so much in black and white film I have been sort of numbed to digital pictures. I don't really know what to shoot or why. Usually I have an assignment or concept I that I feel like shooting but nothing has really presented itself as of late.
Next fall, my classes are going to be all digital. Will I be ready? I know that when I get assignments I'm a little more prone to exercising my creative muscles so I hope that when those classes come I'll be able to hit the ground running with ideas and concepts.
Another crazy thing that's going to happen. Spring term I will be taking Nature Photography with John Telford. For those of who know my photographic style, or who just look through this blog, you should know that I don't really take nature or landscape photos. I just don't find them to be my cup of tea. Nevertheless I didn't want to waste the opportunity of learning from John, because he'll be retiring soon. I'm excited to be able to go out and camp and get awesome, or not so awesome, nature photos.
I just want to become a well rounded photographer who can do everything. I don't have to do everything perfectly, but I want to know how to do each style and genre with my own voice and class.

Okay so some highlights and goings on -
- Spiral Jetty on the 24th
- Nature Photography with John Telford in the spring
- Two photos on the wall and surely one more going up next time
- Double Negative Assignment in which I plan to recreate this scene from Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away
|Only mine will be better than this.|
I forgot to mention it, but it's definitely the highlight of the week! I feel so honored and blessed to get a scholarship and I cannot wait to use it to further my education.
Okay, tomorrow I'm going to go take some photos and hopefully I'll get out of my digital funk. Photos will be posted. :D
