My next assignment was "portraits". I wasn't super excited about this assignment, mostly because I was intimidated by the idea of having to tell people what to do. Turns out, it wasn't all that much of a problem and I did a great job, even with working with models. I had great fun, I had vivid and strong ideas of what I wanted my pictures to look like and my teacher was very happy with the pictures. He told me that I definitely have potential in this field and, possibly, a future. Obviously I was basically giggling like a buffoon while he told me these things. If there's something that gives me a great, fuzzy feeling inside it's when people "feel" something when they look at my pictures. It's a feeling I can't describe. And I always get a bit of a kick out of seeing my pictures displayed on a big screen. I had to take one picture in class with a model I didn't know, two pictures of people I knew at home and one self-portrait.
The model (a friend of a fellow student):
So proud of myself. I'M AN ARTIST MOFO'S. :-D Hope you like the pictures!
