”Mitt fotografiska år” @fotografiska museet, Stockholm, Sweden, started yesterday. Teacher is TOPS! Very knowledgable and I already learned things I did not know prior to this – even though I have done plenty of research on my own and am finishing NYIP’s certificate course on-line. American courses are, like they usually are, very BLABBY and wordy. But I am happy to have pretty much read all I need to read, because I did not know all of the basics prior to NYIP.
Thing that scared the living daylights out of me, is the amount of pictures I have to take now. One a day – and one FORM per day. This was yesterday’s form: passportstyle or documentary/functional. Object in the middle, no changes of color (as-is), sharp and revealing light. Do you think this qualifies?
Else I did one of my last exercises for NYIP with a city scape at dusk:
Was kind of funny. If you look closely you see a small bendy light curve on the left (in the water) – that was a boat going fast. Exposure was 15 seconds, so the boat was kind of fast.
… and ps – I really do not understand Swedes. You know the original kind. The ones who wait until the very, very last moment to voice their opinion, and hence sound like they are passive-aggressive or just plain weird. That was the case yesterday. We were at Fotografiska from 10-16 and 10 minutes before the end, two ladies complained. I am wondering – don’t they realize they are setting a bad mood, just before the end? Weird shit.
