Bound to my tales forever, no where to go.

On Sunday I took preliminary photos of Maxim for my research class. We had to do some sort of contrasting opposite. So I was like, I'll do subtle differences. I showed my teacher on Tuesday and she really liked the idea so I hope they all turn out well. Shannon and Constanza came to visit me from New York for Spring break.

On Monday I took pictures of strangers for my large format class, it was a really good exercise for me because I usually don't do street style photography. This week's weather was so lovely, but I was too busy to enjoy it. I had my midterm critique for my contemporary practices class. I had to do a photo transfer and two paintings. Taping my paintings were so annoying. My teacher really liked my photo transfer though, I want to photograph it when there is nice light in my room.
I'm still cleaning up my room before Shannon and Constanza visit me next week for Spring break, I'm so excited.

For my research class, we were supposed to create something by using a material as a different material. As you can see, the project was rather confusing. I decided to create a beard out of dried hydrangeas. I cut out pieces of muslin and then sewed and glued the flowers to the muslin to create multiple chains. I shot my project on my friend Kenny.
On Wednesday, I took photos of Ruowei. We just went down Michigan Avenue and took photos. I had class in the afternoon so I wanted to stay in the area. I accidentally changed my Blogspot interface and I don't think I can change it back. Hopefully I'll get used to it.

This week I had my first large format critique and it went really well, I was really surprised because I was not at all impressed with my work. For that class my professor wants me to create a series of self portraits because he really liked the ones I did for our first critique. On Thursday I photographed Audrey again, it was really fun. We accidentally took the wrong bus and ended up being too north. When we got off of the bus and found a really beautiful beach.
After the beach we went to the nature museum in Lincoln Park, we went there to see the really interesting butterfly house. It was a room with butterflies flying everywhere. There were also so many specimens that were so beautiful.
After the museum, we went to the conservatory. It was beautiful. Unlike the other greenhouse I went to, they let us take pictures.
