Connected with a really experienced photographer. He’s shot for Vogue, GQ, Rolling Stone, etc. Problem: he wants to date me. He’s 50.

Just went through my first screening for high-end retouching work. I had an interview then had to take a test to prove my proficiency in Photoshop. It’s supposed to test people at the “expert” level. And shit. That test was freaking hard. Didn’t think I’d stress over an exam ever again, post-college and all. There were so many things I didn’t recognize but I still got an 8/10. According to the recruiter even some really good retouchers do terribly at the test.

Self-taught photoshop for 2 years? Not bad, Winn.

I usually hate photos like this with full on flash but considering how much the model looks like a Ken doll it’s pretty neat. Photo by Greg Vaughn.

I’ve been doing a bit of research into editorials and various fashion photographers in NYC. I’m realizing I probably need to alter my style slightly to fit the editorial look more. I’ll need to start doing a lot more portrait style photos (as opposed to landscape) solely to produce images better for a magazine layout.

This makes me a bit sad. I started out as a DP in training so the landscape viewpoint was always a throw to my cinematic training.

I’d like to continue to use landscape for the more embedded, location-centric editorial photography. But for shots of models in the studio - it’s gonna be almost all portrait from here.

If I had the guts to say I love you, 
I’d tell you as quickly as I could. 
Honestly don’t be so upset about this, 
I’d turn the car around if I could. 
We all look the same under these bright lights 
But you’re shining brighter every day. 
You illuminate more than I ever could 
You make me want to change my ways.

She said it’s not hard to fall in love, 
The hardest part is proving that love is what you wanted 
And what you’ll need for the rest of your life.

Weekend of Circumstance

This has been such a strange weekend.

I met a celebrity. First time meeting a public figure who wasn’t from a band.

I met a boy who’s the most sincere person I’ve met since coming here. He’s 18 but seems older than me. I’m surprised how easy it is to talk to him.

Ran into a friend from UNC at Washington Square Park. It was almost as if we were in lower quad, but it was NYC.

Went on three dates. That makes five this week, and it’s more than I’ve dated my entire life.

Found out a lot about myself through two unwanted truths.

Recognized a girl from an online profile on the train back home. Turns out we live all of maybe 10 minutes away from each other. Going to her show next week.

Circumstance sure has made its presence known in my life.

Welcome to New York, Lauren.
