Monday, February 4th and Wednesday, February 6th
So, this week we were at Grant’s studio to shoot some editorial stuff and for e-commerce. Basically, the same stuff we’ve been doing.
Grant and Alex left for Fashion Week on Thursday so we’re not meeting this Friday or next Monday, but I am going in to work with Alan on some inventory stuff on Monday.
I’ve been working more with photography, I’ll post some of the pics from my shutter speed assignment. I’m really learning a lot about my camera. I used to get really frustrated with lighting and would always use my flash, but the flash would just wash everything out. Now that I understand how the shutter and that aspect of the camera works, I can be more educated about my decision to use flash or not.
Something I need to work on: I have this really awful fear of looking stupid so I stay pretty quiet when it comes to creative decisions. I need to stop being so intimidated by the experience and start being more of an input than a help—if that makes sense. I also think that I just need to be more open to photographing things. Since I’m at this novice stage in my photography I feel kind of silly doing it, but that’s how you learn. I need to stop being so scared of what people will think, because I truly believe that Alex will appreciate some more input on my side.
