For my Aesthetic Eduction I am going to explore the beauty world of photography. I have always wanted to try it out and was rather disappointed to find out that there was no room in my program to take a photography class, but heres my chance! For the month of February i plan to take at least one picture a day. By doing this I hope to really understand photography, rather then simply snapping a picture at something i think looks cool. I want to be able to play with exposure, and color tones, and angles, and figure out what really works for me. It's so easy to just take a good picture, but i want to know what makes a photo good. Whats the different between taking a picture and taking an artisitc photograph?! Who decides when a picture is artistic and beautiful? I want to be artistic but what that even mean?! Is it a state of mind or is it the result of my effort?
My dad is an artist and an amazing photography. He is where i get most of my inspiration from. He takes amazing pictures and then creates beautiful paintings from them. I WISH!!! I am hoping that this little photography binge will challenge me to live up to my incredible father!
I want to be able to capture light like this. Photo from my sister's wedding taken by my Dad.(right)
This is life as an artists daughter. After a little photo shoot, this is the start of a painting my dad did of me.(below)
