Monday Through Thursday From 3-6 p.m.

When I am not roaming the streets of Florence sampling Italian cuisine, writing, looking through a camera lens or sitting at a cafe sipping a latte, I am in class. At my university I am enrolled in two classes: Advanced Magazine Editing and Media Photography. Both classes are challenging and enjoyable in their own ways. The objective of the advanced magazine editing class is to create a complete magazine about the Florence study abroad experience for future study abroad students. At first I thought it would be boring for the first few weeks as we settled into class, but it has been fascinating. Currently, we are working with another student who wants to make a documentary about the Madonnari or street artists of Florence. So far, we have compiled a list of questions for an interview we will be setting up with one of the most well known street artists of Florence. In my media photography class we are moving a little bit slower, learning concepts class by class and not jumping into everything head first. We go to class, critique our photos and the photos of others, cover a new photography concept and then are given an assignment to work on before the next class. My current assignment is to photograph a silhouette, something colorful against a stark background (no flowers allowed), something that frames its subject, and leading lines/ interesting patterns. My next post should be filled with creative photos. Tomorrow I will be heading to the Tuscan countryside for a wine tour with my professors and some of my classmates. I am looking forward to photographing the small renaissance towns and the beautiful countryside.
