Apologies





Lately I have been neglecting my blog. Sorry my life has been absolutely mayhem lately. I barely get a minute to myself anymore. But recently I did a project in my digital one class involving a "mock band" photoshoot. You had to shoot each artist individually doing what they love to do. I feel like I really did well with this project and had a lot of fun with it. My 2 friends and little brother all helped me out with this project. Here are a few of my images from the shoot. To explain a little, my one friend plays magic cards, my brother was a gamer and my other friend is an artist.
Enjoy.

CD project





About a week ago my one professor had us do a project in which we had to create a CD cover for a band. I picked Forever My Love's song titled Misery (500 days of Summer). I have fun with these concept photo-shoots. I didn't know I could've done more in photoshop so I will admit the pictures are a little boring. I was following the assignment completely so I hope I got a good grade. 
Here they are. 
Enjoy!

Studio Visit

Jim Lennon is a creative advertising photographer. He has been working with many companies for over 30 years now. Some of his clients include: Nikon, Motorola, Pantone Color, Data Color, Peconic Bay Medical Center and many more. His work has been recognized with many awards from Kodak, the association of graphic art, and the Long Island Advertising Club and Graphic Design magazine. Jim is the vice president of the board of directors for Long Island Cares. 
About a week ago in my photography seminar class, we took a trip to Jim Lennon's studio. Being a photographer he touched upon a lot of things I struggle with. One of the biggest things being do not work for free. A lot of people think that photographers should not get paid and personally it's really aggravating. The studio was amazing he has this huge space with everything imaginable. I personally want to go back and really explore it. I love working in studios it's so much fun. He does everything from food photography to models. He has a lot of amazing work with a lot of huge named brands and companies. It was also nice to hear he works with a lot of charities and gives back. I like hearing photographers that are not just in it for the money but also give back to charities. I personally work with a no kill animal shelter and do work for them on the side. 
Jim Lennon Check him out his work is amazing and you will probably recognize some of the shots.
Enjoy.

Time Management

This week my professor asked me to write down everything I did every hour. The week was pretty crazy because I recently got hired to the Microsoft store and we had our grand opening on friday. I realized that my life has been taking over my job and sleep. I spent a lot of time at my job. I would say my time was managed pretty well because I got everything I had to do done. I couldn't really make any adjustments to my schedule. But to be honest I wouldn't change anything about it. I also made a really cool video for our grand opening. It was a little behind the scenes look at what goes on when opening a huge store like this. I'll post it once I finish editing it. We actually had to move our cars at one point on friday so we decided to walk passed one of the photographers and the crowd to hype everyone up. And on a very rare occasion I was in a picture. 
Enjoy.
