more on "a day in the life"

The more I work on this project, the more I appreciate the intricacy of B&W photos.  I will present about 10 of these tomorrow in class and make sure I get lots of feedback from our instructor Lisa on how I can do this better!

a day in the life

Next week, I will be sharing "a day in life" photos with my AAC classmates.  This is a pretty open-ended subject and it certainly allows us to present a series of cohesive photos with narratives.

I've determined to use this project to practice my B&Ws so I can get more feedback from my instructor Lisa.  So here it is, a day in my life - just an ordinary day.

We're all inspired to be extraordinary.  But sometimes, you wake up in the morning wishing you can just be ordinary.  There are no expectations to accomplish anything, no anticipations to achieve anything, we can just live through the day as is.

This may sound uninspiring but really, being ordinary has its beauty.  A day like this means you don't have unnecessary dramas and chaos.  I think we all deserve to have a day like this every once in a while.  This is certainly the cheapest form of therapy.  After an ordinary day, we can have more energy to charge forth and face many unknowns in life.

We've just relocated to Cincinnati Ohio in the new year!

Moving away from New York City is a very sad thing.  I felt really connected to the city.  It really is a photographer's paradise with endless inspirations.  Having said that, the move to Cincinnati is a great opportunity for me to shoot a very different environment.  It definitely allows me to gain new perspectives.

After arriving here shortly, I eagerly registered for a photography project course at Art Academy of Cincinnati.  Here is my first project - hands. Three very different approaches yet similar in some ways.  I'm glad that I got creative with this.  Hopefully I can continue to push the boundaries and test my capability.
