The perfect picture is not easy to find

It had been a long day of roaming around campus just hoping to stumble upon an event. I finally found my way into an art exhibit, took some decent pictures, but still was not completely satisfied. I was on a mission, I needed to find the picture. I went onto the music floor of Old Main, and found Kyle Johnson. Johnson is a Wayne State student studying music performance. When I stumbled on Johnson, he was cleaning and preparing his clarinet before his rehearsal. Personally, I found this assignment very challenging. I found it challenging because I had never done anything like this before, I was and still am an amateur. But with this experience, I feel just a little bit better about shooting photography on my own.

I feel very accomplished and proud of the pictures I took for this assignment, mostly because they took me such a long time to get. That is also another lesson I learned with this assignment, the 'perfect picture' does not just happen. You have to be patient and wait for it. You have to make the moment, and make the picture.
