my photography professors have always been my favorites. except for two. they were the worst. but this semester my teacher is the best best best. he jumps across the classroom, uses a slew of $5 dollar words, and makes us contemplate why. all the time. why we're doing something, why we framed it that way, why this is what it is and what it means. so i often find myself writing down small bits of his lectures all over my notes (next to my doodles of bunnies and clouds).
in our last class, he was talking about a images, and how images reveal certain things, and they have to reveal something about something. whether it reveals something about us (the photographer) or about the content in the image. but most importantly, he said that the thing contains the experience. and that the preceding is just as important. that sometimes you might be in too close to a situation, and not be able to see it. and that everything that happened prior to the photo, or the situation, is just as important as what is currently happening. i apologize for my abstractness. but it's been weighing on my mind since, that maybe i'm too close, and taking a step back, and remembering everything that has happened before that lead to where i am, and what i'm doing, is just as important.
outfit talk: this is one of my favorite dresses, in sheer appearance. i don't think it's the perfect dress for me, it doesn't fit me quite the way i want to, the elastic waist moves up and down too much, so i belt it down. and i probably should've worn pants this day, but i liked it regardless.
dress: forever 21
belt: stolen from my mom
