Certainly! Thank you for looking up to me, that makes me smile. Some advice could be to be patient, shoot as many photos as you can. Make it all about light, open a window for natural light if it’s during the day, or bring in some sort of lamp and shoot black and white if it’s night. Set a color tone or feel for your images of them. Don’t be afraid to shoot close or capture what you think looks best, they obviously want cool shots so be comfortable in their space - you’re invited. Act as a friend, don’t be nervous, live in your mind and keep a smile on your face. Thats what I usually do! Let me know if that helps. Good luck
It’s my own handwriting!
well I wish you the best! It will all come together, just create as much as you can and don’t let others make you anxious about your future, you have time. I’m happy to inspire, I’m thankful.
Time just had it’s way, along with a lot of prayers. I built a few online portfolios, updated as much as I could and I did meet some good people along the way but more so making my name known in the online world. I never encourage anyone to drop out of college, but I personally feel art can’t be taught or forced. I understand the main goal from college is connections but I know just as many graduates as self taught artists who made the same amount of great connections and accomplishments. It all depends on how hard you try. If you feel you can get where you want to on your own then start making decisions about your future as far as school goes but if you don’t feel comfort yet then take your time, there’s nothing wrong with school if you’re learning and making connections. I just always was much better at teaching myself things. I’m sure it will all work out, keep creating all you can and gain faith in yourself :)
I have not and will not because I never went to college for photography! ;) I’ve taught/teach myself everything. I did a semester of college in high school for free and took 2 photography classes and didn’t learn much of anything. I’m better at learning things myself and I started early enough to where I thankfully made a decent portfolio really young. I just don’t feel driven to ever go to school for it.
