Well.. nothing kills a productive week of tackling your to-do list like getting the flu, huh? Yeah, I spent all of Wednesday feeling “off” and by Wednesday night it was pretty clear I was getting sick. I woke up Thursday morning after a rough night sweating with a heavy head, to put it lightly. I had a fever, cough, muscle aches and a really bad headache. It was pretty awful.. I haven’t been sick like this in a couple of years so it was disorienting. If you’re waiting to hear from me regarding a design, I hope to be back on my feet soon.
Last week, our photo class spent the coldest day of winter thus far at the Boston Public Library – luckily the library was warm! The field trip was a part of our Photographing Architectural Interiors class. I was actually really excited for this module because I’ve always been interested in becoming an architect. Fun fact: when applying to college, it came down to two schools, a business school and an architecture school. Even though our class really only scratched the surface of what it means to be an architectural photographer, it was really fun and I learned skills I know I will use in the future.
The interesting thing about architectural photography is that once you take the perfect shot, you’re only half done. There is a ton of post-processing that happens. We only processed one photo for our final, so most of the photos you see below are unedited but I thought they’d be cool to share anyways because the Boston Public Library is so beautiful! If you’re ever in Boston it’s definitely worth checking out!
The library is split in two parts: The McKim building and The Johnson building. While the two buildings share similar proportions and built of the same pink granite, they really couldn’t look more different. The McKim building has a Renaissance feel with murals and details. The Johnson building is much more modern, built in the the 1960s.
And my two deliverables:
This is my parent’s kitchen, not the library haha
What are your plans for this weekend? Tell me something fun you’re doing while I’m held up in bed.
