Today’s Obsession: Canon

I’ve been obsessssedddd with trying to get into this class for summer 2 called Photo Basics for Non-majors and I’ve done everything that my conniving little mind can think of to make it happen… I’ve emailed professors and the art administrative assistants (and probably pissed a few people off along the way. But I have a habit of getting what I want. And not because I’m spoiled (I’m not.), but because my mom taught me exactly how to kick and fight and scream–metaphorically, of course. For more info on how to get what you want, check out this post.
When I was in Boston, I was hanging some of the most incredible people I know, misses Jordan Charlton and Laura Nelson. We were just relaxing and eating Jordan’s wonderful creations and laughing at Sweethearts’ new sayings (umm “Tweet me?” No thanks). Laura was playing with this awesome new camera that she bought for herself after taking a photojournalism class. And I got so envious. I’m not technosavvy by any means and I think a diaphragm is a muscle used for singing, but nonetheless I love photography.
I want to build a skill set before I head to Paris next fall so I can take some super awesome and memorable photos. Hence my obsession with the class and today’s obsession with this camera. I know the $1000 price tag is (eek!) a little–how do you say?–unappealing? But a girl can dream. And I always do. It’s so pretty!!! Obsessed.
