Final Portfolio

Yesterday I handed in my final portfolio which is one of the last steps in the completion of the Photography Program at Algonquin College. The past week has consisted of 12hr+ days at school, average 5hr or less of sleep at night, coffee, coffee, coffee followed by the occasional cup of coffee, poor diet, over heating computer, printing frustration and topped off with some of the funniest most memorable moments that I have had with the people in my program. 

When I handed in my portfolio I though I would have the "thank God that's over with" moment. But to my surprise I had mix feelings about the whole thing. I am proud of myself for my accomplishment but in a way I am also going to miss the mayhem along with the teachers who have provided help and encouragement over the past two years.

For friends (outside of the program) and family who have not seen or heard from me in the past few weeks. This is what I have been up to. And to fellow classmates who have endured the stress, craziness and all things wonderful in the past few years congratulations to you! Be proud of your work and what you have accomplished. 

My theme is Religion and Culture. The blog doesn't do the images justice. Come check out the real deal on May 2nd at the Exhibition at Algonquin College (details will follow soon).

Mistakes Can Be Lovely

This weekend will be my first time booking models from an agency for shoots. I thought it was good for to challenge myself new people and new lighting schematics and out of my comfort zone. 

This evening I photographed Rose, a stunning individual with a fantastic sense of humour. I had a lot of fun with her and got some great images for my portfolio. 

Here is a shot that happened purely by mistake, one of the lights didn't go off and even though it is not technically correct there is just something about it that I like.

We all have those days where we just want to stay at home in the good old p.j's (my personal favourite are my plaid RGB set) but instead we have to get up and get ourselves together. Today was a slightly 'blah' day. But when I came home I saw this little gem from a person who knows me all to well. I thought I would share it and hopefully pass a smile along to you too... 

Enjoy and remember to take time out of your stressful day to laugh at something. 

I wish I knew who to give credit to for creating this. Thank you whoever you are!
