Quick update

Hello all! Thanks for all of your support and comments throughout this short blog lifetime. It’s been a crazy few months, and this month is no exception. Being at student here at Brooks means constantly having to time manage and give up a few things (like sleep and a normal eating schedule) to gain a few things (experience, time, shooting). After almost three years here, I am very proud to say that this is my last session here and I am expected to graduate on August 29th, 2010!

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve started working out in the field (versus interning, as I was doing before) with some great wedding cinematographers. I recently attended a StillMotion workshop out in Las Vegas! We (my boyfriend and I) ended up going to help StillMotion with a commercial shoot the day after the workshop… out in the middle of the desert in Palm Springs, which was a blast, despite being about 110 degrees.

I still have a deep love for photography, but I’m definitely excited about the field of cinematography as well. It’s great having such a good base of photography knowledge because I find it definitely helps me when I’m out there shooting. Not to mention the fact that the Canon 7D (my main camera) and the Canon 5DMKII have both photo and video capabilities.

On that note, for my final portfolio for this school, I decided to base it around weddings (whereas other recent portfolios have centered around food or product photography). I also decided to look into customizing a logo as well as changing up a few colors (yay for research!). I’m definitely happy to see where my work has progressed, and can only work harder to make sure that it keeps heading in the direction that I want it to go!

And for those of you who are wondering, the thought of graduation both scares and excites me.
