I’ve spotted these little purple flowers growing in a variety of places across the countryside. They’re usually blossoming humbly beneath the shade of leafy trees, or adorning the nooks and crannies of stone walls. I love them, but I’ve no idea what they’re called – do any of you know?
Lately the future is on my mind. I’m considering going back to college again. I want to learn more about photography and am beginning to feel like there’s only a certain amount I can learn myself. I’d love a broader knowledge about the whole subject, like history, theory and context. I’d also like to learn a lot more about the technical stuff.
I do fine figuring things out on the camera and Photoshop myself, but I want to be better, you know? Take more considered images, begin to use my camera with greater intent. I’d like to learn what it means to be a professional. And if I ever consider turning professional myself, I’d like to know that I’m creating really good quality work first. I want it to be work that I’d pay for myself, and I’m picky!
Studying again will be time consuming, and expensive. It’s a big decision to make, and I’m really just beginning to consider it. If any of you have studied photography in college I’d appreciate a comment with your thoughts below, or get in touch through email. It’d be helpful to hear from photographers who went down that route. I’m asking as many people as I can, every opinion helps in the decision making process!
Tomorrow I’m heading to the country to be with my family for a couple of days. I have a dawn photowalk planned, so I hope to have some new images to share on here very soon. Have a great weekend!
