I've always known that what you learn in class and what actually happens when you are photographic are sometimes two entirely different experiences. The way things have been going lately, I've been learning more during my class periods than ever before, but I've also been experiencing more out of class than I ever have before. It's a nice balance, but these experiences out of school are showing me that photographing is such a personal experience. Some people care most about making the photographs and others care more about the experiences themselves and the friendships made through those experiences. I'm happy to feel like I am falling into the later. My mindset is that any photographer can make a photo, but it takes a lot more to make a friend.
