    Photography Is (not) Dead

    Week Two Summary


    Looking at the assignments for this week, I felt pretty overwhelmed. Skimming the page, it looked like we had a lot of readings to do and a lot of blog post to write. Mistakenly, I didn’t even really start on anything until Wednesday. If I would have started on Monday …

    Share MY Creativity


    This week’s assignment started out with reading Austin Kleon’s article, Share Your Creativity. Overall, he talks about different ways to share your projects with others, but also observe and learn from other projects. The idea that resonated with me the most is to never quit. This phrase has been …

    Week One Reflection


    Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old.
