anyways, i thought it would be cool to share my photography projects from this class on the blog. i'm starting with my final project, so i'm not really going in order, but i'll probably end up sharing all of them eventually.
for this project i strayed quite a bit away from what i usually enjoy/focus on in photography. i usually really like capturing color and light in scenes that create aesthetically pleasing images. i don't usually have a deeper concept or idea behind them. for this project, however, i did the exact opposite. i'm not sure how well it turned out, but to be honest i'm just proud of myself for trying something that i normally would never have done in my usual work.
the concept behind this typology is how people in this decade interact with technology. it has become so easy for each of us to become our own photographer of ourselves and the world around us. we all have phones in our hands that take quality images, and we've all kind of inderectly learned some of the basics of photography accidently as we take numerous shots to find the perfect one. so, this serious tries to focus on that and highlights its existence in our world today.
to be compleltey honest, this wasn't one of my favorite shoots i've done. to me it was just a project for a class that i had to get done and i kind of felt like i wasn't "allowed" to do the kind of photography i liked. i just want to get comfortable with shairng my work, so here it is. anyways, i hope you at least found it interesting! xo shawndiz
