I am a sixth year senior at Texas A&M studying visualization in the college of architecture. Well, since I am a 6th year (ya i know, tell me about it) I get to take some pretty lenient project based classes. This semester I am taking B&W photography as an independent study... which pretty much means I get to do what I want for a semester and I get to put on an exhibit in the college's gallery at the end of the this Fall semester. I'll need about 20-30 really good B&W photographs. My focus, as of now, is studio abstract photography; lighting; contrast; non-identifiable. I may not stick with this focus considering how the first couple weeks will go. ANYWAY!!!! My prof has been a professional photographer for some years... probably over 20, he is allowing me to use his library of cameras... 8 x 10's... 120 mm cameras, twin reflex cameras. he has some super awesome telephotos for nikon cameras. 300 mm 1.8 f/stop! WHOA! and then ones even larger (but I probsbly wont use) that are even longer zooms and same speed (or close). IM JUST EXCITED AND I THOUGHT ID SHARE! I will be posting photographs of my work this semester to get critiques and feedback... please help out if you notice and can.
