The Flight Back.
Still, despite my progress, there are still more things that I want to see and do. I want to vastly increase my knowledge of studio lighting, especially when dealing with Profoto lights. I want to be able to set up a shoot by myself with legitimate equipment, learn light metering, understand f-stops/apertures better, and most importantly walk away with a stronger knowledge of fashion.
I am about as fashionable as a blind hillside goat that's missing one of its legs. It's no longer cute, nor acceptable for me to be ignorant to important aspects of an industry I claim I want to be a part of. If I am able to walk away with at least half of these goals checked on my list, then the money I invested into my income-less stay in this city was more than worth it. As I stated in a prior blog post, I am really happy that I have other interns with me that I get to learn these things with as we all tackle this angry, exclusive, pompous, fashion-photography monster together. I also trust that we'll be able to hold each other accountable to our goals and continue to encourage each other throughout this season of our lives.
On August 18th, 2010 I believe I'll head home with a smile on my face and a small, (but existent) sense of accomplishment. Later everyone, and that includes you too, future Hasselblad sponsors ;-).
