This weekend, I took a brief trip to Denver Colorado! My dad works for a cool company specializing in homes and other structures with a very high energy-saving standard, and the annual conference was held in Denver this year. My dad hired me to be the official event photographer for the conference last year when it was in Silver Springs, Maryland and asked me back for this year! I got to Denver around 2 am on Saturday, took pictures all day Saturday, and was back in Boston on Sunday by 5 pm. I used my camera, a Canon Rebel XSI to take some general shots for the company’s website and promotional materials. Here are a few of the pictures from the weekend:
I really enjoy taking photographs. I took a photography class every year of high school, from Photography I, which included dark room practices and manual cameras, to Photography II, which taught me Photoshop and digital photography basics, to Art Concentration, which gave me the freedom to explore new and favorite photographic techniques. I’ve continued to bring my camera everywhere I go even after high school even though I haven’t been able to take a photography class at New England School of Art and Design. I’m thrilled to report, however, that I will be taking Black and White Photography during the Spring 2013 semester if everything goes according to plan! I am in the process of applying to study abroad in the spring in Florence, Italy at Studio Art Centers International (SACI). I absolutely love to travel and have planned on studying abroad as long as I can remember, so I am very excited about the spring. Along with the photography class, I hope to take an Intermediate Painting class, an Advanced Drawing class, and an On-Site Art History class!
