So, for the past few weeks I’ve been taking an Intro to Photography class and really enjoying some of the photographs that I’ve taken so far.
When the class started, what I didn’t want to do was take photos of things that were obviously interesting and call it art. I thought that was too easy and too boring. I wanted to test my capabilities as a photographer, not snapshot the beauty already in the world. Instead, I wanted to limit myself to the familiar and make it interesting, find the beauty in the boring. So, I chose the most mundane subject I could: UCSD
If I succeed in making UCSD look interesting, I thought to myself: I could make anything interesting. And so, I’ve been taking photos on the campus and trying, sometimes in vain, to create something interesting; to capture seductive moments. Photos coming up!
