Negative comments about my useless fine art photography degree come reeling in.
Why would you be interested in learning about film photography when it's on the brink of extinction? Just another dreaded question I hear and contemplate day in and day out.
Here I am, 16 years later, still photographing film and still loving it.
It didn't go extinct. In fact, it seems like a trend many photographers are picking up on. In this digital age, the photography market is BEYOND saturated. Which makes it more important to stay true to my vision. I'm grateful for my fine art photography degree.
A piece of advice, stay true to your OWN vision.
Trust me, I know it isn't easy. I've been there! Oftentimes, I feel like I'm still there. Stuck in comparison and wondering if, yet again, I traveled down the wrong path. After nearly two decades, I'm finally showing my work.
It isn't easy, but I'm doing the work anyway. My BFA degree isn't a waste. To this day, it continues to serve my vision. Who knows, maybe sometime soon I'll go for my MFA.
