This summer I tagged along with USF’s Formula SAE team. My role there was to document the trip, from beginning to end. I really had a blast - I had forgotten how much I enjoyed photojournalism. I once planned to have a career in that field, but then I got a hankering for commercial and fashion photography. But right now I’m finding myself inching closer and closer to photojournalism again. Documenting events, catching the emotion and being able to show others an event from a spectacular view. I do miss it.
This particular photo - which is slowly becoming my favorite of the whole trip - was actually a reject. Underexposed, there was nothing I seemed to be able to do to save it. Tonight I found it and worked on it again - it looks atrocious in color (I had to up the exposure and brightness so much it started to distort the photo), but switching it over to black and white erased all of that.

From Friday’s photoshoot at the USF lighting studio. I wish I started working in it sooner! It’s now closed until next semester (possibly until fall). :(
Different take on the party girl persona I had in mind (was going to be a club scene). My boyfriend said I looked dead, though, so I’m hoping people will get what it’s supposed to be of. Maybe I should have added a bottle in there or something.

Persona - Cereal Box kid
Story behind this: When I was little, Life used to hold “be the cereal box kid” contests. I really wanted to enter, and one year my mom took photos for the contest. A few years ago, I suddenly found them and learned that she forgot to send them in! Oh well, at least I can pretend I was a cereal box kid, right?
