Today I made a conscious effort to turn the internet off (after a blogged my bollywood outfit of course) with the target of finishing one assignment and making more headway with the others. I did just that and it was nice to feel focused and all of a sudden competent sentences flew onto my page. I felt smarter. All the knowledge is tucked up in there, silently waiting for me to put it into practice. Ahhh it felt good.
So one assignment down and two to go. One is simple portraits using different lighting techniques and the other is a photojournalism piece for a magazine or paper. The portrait piece would be perfect to do this afternoon as the weather is fantastic but alas I have to go to work tonight. I’m not happy my mojo is interrupted.
For my photojournalism piece I’m writing a small article about local produce and consumers. Tomorrow I’m going down to my local grocer, butcher and baker to take some photos for it. I might even submit it to one of the local papers. Can’t hurt… right?
