Currently I'm an education major and I mean I love learning and I love teaching but at the same time, I've had this plan set for me to become a teacher for so long I don't know if it's really what I want to do anymore. I love photography but I don't know if I'd be able to make it doing that. People always tell me just to minor in it and I'll be able to keep it as a hobby but part of me doesn't want it just to be a hobby...I don't know what I want. I feel lost.
Ok here's the thing, I love photography. I mean like, when I hold a camera and look at life through my pictures I feel complete. I know that I shouldn't be concerned with whether or not they're "good" by society's standards because they're my photos or whatever but sometimes I feel incredibly amateur and like it's not even worth it for me to keep trying to pursue it. My question is, how did you completely commit to choosing photography as your career. You're amazing, I'm not....
As long as you have the passion for it and the drive, GO FOR IT! I still feel amateur sometimes when I see certain people’s work. There is ALWAYS room for learning and improvement. As long as you enjoy doing it, keep at it!! I feel like photography chose me. Back in my junior year of high school with my first photo class. I didn’t know I would have “the eye” for it but I kept at it and I started to get better. I strongly encourage taking some classes and/or workshops to learn from others. I was never into making a career out of something I did not love. Photography is what I love. There’s no other career path for me. :]
Like oh, lets just put a bunch of girls up on the screen who haven’t eaten in days and make it look glamorous to the whole fucking world. I saw in People magazine a few months ago an interview with a model. This is what she said “Two weeks before the runway show, I stop eating solids, and 24 hours before I stop eating/ drinking anything…even water. But it is so worth it!!” Seriously? How nice. Not. News Flash: There is more than just one body type, and each body type is beautiful. So, no, Victoria’s Secret, there is not just one body type. I don’t need double D’s to be beautiful. Fuck you
OHMYGOD thisthisthisthisthis. i cannot stand victoria’s secret in pretty much any form. these shows are the worst. degrading and hurtful and naive and misogynistic in a way. i’m so glad i’m not the only one who feels this way. every time i see the commercial for it i get super peeved. and i saw that interview too, that woman sounded like a twat.
so glad i didn’t see the runway show. i probably would have thrown something at my tv.
i know you've answered this before, but i'm not very good at finding old posts, but what was your first SLR and what do you currently use? and what would you recommend to a first-time D-SLR buying/user, who is fairly confident in her skills and ability to learn a new camera pretty quickly? i've been wanting a D-SLR for sooo long, and the new Canon Rebels looks awesome, and i'd like some advice from a great photographer :)
Hey kelly! My first DSLR camera was Canon Rebel XT. I like the Rebel series and would definitely recommend it to a beginner. :] I currently use Canon 5D Mark ii.
So I joined a group of two girls, one girl who i guess I’m friends with. we have another class together which we are also in a group for. anyways in this class, we have a presentation due a week from tomorrow. I have no idea what my role is in the group so I haven’t done anything for it. I don’t really like this class and I have a C right now. I have an exam tomorrow that I need a B or better. I can’t focus on this class at all…sigh. At this point I am looking for another class to take next semester to fulfill my biological science requirement for me to transfer just in case I don’t pass this class :(
Now I am off to work and I am going to have to request a lot of days off next week so I can study and do work for my classes which sucks cuz then I won’t be making money but whatever. priorities right?
I appreciate any prayers. I don’t wanna be stressed..
