Today I came across this wonderful Wall Street Journal article of women who have empowered themselves. (WSJ article tinyurl.com/y2kjrkzf) It’s an encouraging article and we need more of them. Women spend so much of their life-supporting others around them and they need to realize that there comes a time for her. Furthermore, no apologies or justifications are required. Due to the slow summer season in the area, I found myself with free time I had not anticipated. As you all know I came to Germany in order to make money to cover my living expenses. I am using this found time wisely and am working on my thesis project. The photographic work I am created consists of extreme macro images. I ventured into this area after one of my SACI professors challenged me to apply the street photography I had created in his class to food. A media he knew I worked extensively with before I started my MFA program. Out of this challenge came a series of wonderful garlic skin compositions. I like to build on this series using a stacking rail. www.mjkzz.de/collections/focus-stacking-rails/products/qool-250-rail-incl-mjkzz-ir-controller.variant=18553808355443 A tool used to help with the shallow depth of field of the macro lens I am using. I hope the program might provide one for me as due to a cracked tooth new tools are not in the budget. The tooth will need to be dealt with before I can even consider a new tool. I am getting restless and am very excited to start the second leg of my MFA journey.
