Last week, I mentioned that I had the opportunity to sit in as my photography guru, Peter Cook, continued his work on his “Jazz Set” series. Peter’s not only a photographer, but for a portraiture class I was taking at the Arts Council of Princeton, he filled in as a model during one session.
I still have my own artistic challenges, but I’ve seen classmates from the Arts Council of Princeton experience a lot of success with their own art, being included and featured in exhibitions all over the world. I need to make some effort to submit my work to exhibitions.
The availability of good digital cameras, even those embedded in cell phones, has allowed people everywhere to discover their own artistic eye. I, too, was helped by the digital age. I try not to look at the world of photography as competitive, and it is truly nice to see so much great photography. But it can be discouraging when I see so much great art and also look at my own, slow artistic progress. (I’m really not fishing for compliments!)
Going back July 2012 for that portraiture class, here’s Peter.
