HOLY PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS!

So last night during photography class, I received half a semesters worth of work that is due MONDAY! Monday is the same day as the third Ignite SD event, that I’d love to go to. But back to the pictures. I have a portfolio due that features motion, portraits, and aperture settings. I’m not completely done, but I have added the pictures that I do have done. I also have a photographer paper/presentation/picture due. For this assignment I have to pick a famous photographer (Josef Sudek) and do a paper and presentation on him and his works, then to top it all off, I need to submit one picture I took in his style. This is very challenging because he took pictures between 1915-1976. This time period was huge for photography. Camera technology advanced every year. Luckily he was an old man who refused to switch styles (part of the reason he was famous.) He used a camera that was from the 1940’s until he died in ’76. I’ll put a few of Sudek’s photos then mine. See if you think I did a decent job or not. Oh and on top of it all I have to submit a photo book (made by hand) that includes 6 pictures that tell a story. Remember my Racing post? Yeah that’s not good enough for her. She wants things that are more connected. Luckily I have another set of racing pictures that (hopefully) tell a better story.
My life is busy between class and 9 Clouds, but I better get used to it. Next semester i’m taking twenty-one credits. Yeah that’s right 21 credits. Thats 5 over overloading!
Now enjoy the pictures!

JazzFest Sioux Falls

Here is a link to my blog post for 9 Clouds. In it I discuss how social media influenced soccer as a sport during this past World Cup. I also point out that JazzFest will be using social media to help get the word out to the 90,000+ people that are expected to attend. Check it out and give it some likeage on Facebook. http://9cloudsinc.com/2010/07/15/social-media-publicity-from-south-africa-to-south-dakota/
