Hey all

Well, today has been another long day that will be followed by other long days and light up till Nov 30th. As a Film Production student, I am up to my eyeballs in projects and assignments. Thank God I recently discovered BitTorrents, because now I don't have to worry about missing my TV shows.

The topper for my day today was having to re-schedule my portrait time with Trixie, my subject matter. Wednesday night was the only time I had to take her portrait for my B&W class. Turns out the studio is booked for that time. The next time she's available is Sunday afternoon. So I go to book studio time for that. Lo and behold, my good buddy Todd has the entire studio booked for the long weekend.

I had been fairly cool the whole day. But it was at that time I actually lost it, ripped up the forms and gave a slight Hulk roar. At this point, I no longer care. I'm just going to bring my Pentax with me to school, and when I see Trixie in the halls or whenever, I'm just going to snap her pics then and there. Fuck artistry. I just want a fuckin mark.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to write the second half of my script for my final project, do my multimedia lab that's due tomorrow, do some long overdue reading responses, and mess around with Photoshop to create 11 experimental shots. Photoshop, BTW, is a system I have no idea how to use, even after a previous semester and a tutorial that went over my head. And all in the comfort of a claustrophobic room on campus affectionately known as "The Fishbowl."

Even as a fervent agnostic, I say to thee: harness the stage which the Lord giveth to his children and let it work for the...for it is light which illuminates our truths;)

Basically...shoot Trixie "naturally"...might actually score ya a high mark. Profs are weird like that;)

Who needs an F'ing studio with a posing subject. Imagine all the things shooters miss when they ask for a pose. Just catch her unaware in the truthful sense.
True light comes from the perspective of the shooter, not the viewer.

Hey you could do some cool arty outdoor shots...or find an empty classroom and do some in there ( great props and lines)..hmm or you could check and see if there's a time when the stage isn't in use. All of those areas would have great shadows and contrast:) Good luck and sorry you're finding such frustration HUGS
