To preface this; for the two classes I’m planning on majoring and minoring in (Fine-art Color, and Documentary), I have to produce a 20-image body of work to present at portfolio review for each of them.
My predicament? Somewhere around 50% of the solid project ideas that I come up with can’t be accomplished here, and would be San Francisco-based. Awful, right? I was recently talking to a girl that shot her entire final project (which turned out beautifully, I might add) in Florida. Obviously it was hard for her to do, but she would fly down there on the weekends in order to shoot. The idea is so tempting to me, but I also have to be saving money to actually MOVE out there once I’m done with school. I’m so confused as to what to do. I should be getting started on projects right now, and I’m still attempting to decide what I want to do.
I know if I were to pursue the ideas that I have in San Francisco that I could produce two KILLER bodies of work for final portfolio. Is all the traveling and money spent in the meantime worth that though?
