I started Spring semester two days ago and quite frankly I am really enjoying my classes. My schedule is packed with artsy classes that range from art history (with a 70 year old five foot tall potty mouthed professor who has already won my heart) to a poetry class filled with beautiful words and a colorful spectrum of people. My drama classes seem like they are going to be wildly entertaining (I got goosebumps walking into the auditorium and seeing the stage where I will hopefully be performing many times. It sure beats the old and rickety cafeteria stage that I performed in when I was in High School). And lastly, my photography class which is stressing me out because of all the supplies I have to purchase. Just the slightest thought of being inside a darkroom, however, puts me in a doze of blind amnesia so that every click of the "place order" button on different websites feels a lot less painful.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that being in such an artistic environment will not only make me a better writer/photographer/actress, but it will also help aid me to figure out a little more about myself, to give me a stronger feel for what it is I want to do with my knowledge, my thoughts, my dreams, my life.
Things are pretty hectic at the moment considering the semester has just begun. Everywhere I look I see long lines that remind me that I have an overwhelming amount of stuff to do. Once things settle down a bit and I get myself into the swing of things, I will hopefully be starting up a little feature I've had in mind for a while. I'm so excited- especially considering it involves a lot of the things I love the most.

P.S. If you shoot film what brand(s) is/are your favorite and/or where do you purchase your film?

love, these are INCREDIBLE!
the first two and the one of the geese with the orange-pink tone on the side are absolutely amazing. they're all great. you are so talented, sweetie. :)

i am totally blanking on what film i used in the past (which is sad, because that means it's been way too long! i need to start using my film cameras again)... but if i remember i'll let you know :) i always bought my film at this place called prophoto because it was the cheapest i could find.

PS I use Kodak for my colour film... 35mm ISO100 or ISO200...

For Black and white film I use Ilford.

I have a feeling you will be great in all of them:)

aw u started ur semester already :) good luck! i cant wait to start mines. i am kind of starting to get worried and to be unsure i have chosen the wrong career for me :/ & im already in my 3rd year in college. i dont know what to do! :[ hopefully when i return to school i will find the passion for my career again :s because now i am considering to be a meteorologist but then these last 3 years of college would be a waste if i change my mind now..

sorry for the long comment "/

Wow, the pictures are beautiful! You make college seem like so much fun, so thank you for that! :)

Your schedule sounds amazing! My one regret is that I did not follow my heart and major in a fashion/art related field.

These photos are SO insanely gorgeous!

la-vie-de-mademoiselle-e January 22, 2010 at 10:38 AM  

I love those photographs! Could've used them for my inspiration book, no doubt about that!

Love, E

these photos are so beautiful!
just letting you know that I've changed my blog name (no more freckled mystery!) http://pleaseeandthankyouu.blogspot.com/

Amelia January 23, 2010 at 2:48 PM  

I love the light in these pictures--especially the 2nd one. And something really speaks to me about the 2nd to last as well. They're all beautiful. I'm glad your enjoying your classes :)

I just shoot whatever I can get my hands on--so generally whatever is cheapest (usually Kodak). I guess I like not being totally sure if it will look good. I don't know.

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse January 23, 2010 at 9:30 PM  

That prof sounds amazing. Beautiful pictures.

Lizard January 23, 2010 at 10:31 PM  

Ooooh nice classes! I am a science major so I'm mostly bogged down with chemistry, math, and biology right now. I wanted to take a photo class but there was no room!! (I also did not get fiction writing! - sigh the disadvantages of being a freshman heheheh) However, I am taking a seminar analyzing gothic novels and it is LOVE. These photos are great ^__^ I like the rainbow geese picture!

katieleigh January 31, 2010 at 1:14 AM  

this possibly answers my question. these images are stunning

Jack Daniel February 1, 2010 at 2:26 PM  

How can you take such beautiful pictures? They're amazingly beautiful!

The very first time I shot with a vintage filmcamera, I used 'Kodak Portra 160nc'. I love it!! Most of my pictures are taken with Fujicolor Pro 400H. Both are 120 format, but I'm sure you can also get them in normal 35mm. I can get these film in any photostore. :)
