An Issue of Pride

First and foremost, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the best mentor I could ever ask for! I hope you had a wonderful day, Sandra!

Now, today's photos. Yaaay... *sarcasm sign*

You know, with the exception of the smoke stream photos, I haven't been proud of my work in almost 2 weeks. This is a problem I hope to fix over the weekend with my Nikon FM. Things are going great for me, but it's all with older digital photos, not recent work.

I need to step up my game, anyway. I just found out some terrifying news today: My film photography portfolio is due NEXT WEEK instead of finals week now! AAAARGH! I'm nowhere near ready. The professor chose a few of my prints that he wants in the portfolio, but otherwise, I still need like 9 more. I've decided that my portfolio theme will be Lines. He wants us to have a specific theme, and it seems that all my film prints heavily emphasize lines, so there we go. I'm spending pretty much the whole day Tuesday doing what I can. Wish me skill!

P.S. Photographer's Forum has finally posted the winners of the contest I was a finalist in. You can find them all here.

Well, how did I miss this? Thank you very much! You are a wonderful student - I think I'll be learning from you soon enough.
Great shots, You are being too hard on yourself. Your images are amazing. Take a breahter and just enjoy the process, it's impossible to create a masterpiece every single day. It takes some people a lifetime and you've done that already!
Congrats and good luck on the photography forum contest.

C: Thank you so much for being a wonderful mentor and friend. I definitely enjoy the process, but I'm not enjoying the subjects, possibly just because they're not what I want to shoot. I'm bored by them-- I see them every day. Hopefully, I'll get over this plateau soon. :)
And thanks! I have high hopes for this year's contest. xD
