Today in photography class we had a lot of free time, so we went to the studio and Professor Foley let us do whatever we wanted. I suggested we do some transparency shots and we got some really fun results. It’s something I’ve done before, but it was fun to do it with a bunch of people. We also did some light painting which was really fun. It was a good class today and everyone had fun, and even Professor Foley was really enjoying it.
So this is an older photo, but there’s a reason I’m using this. Today when I went to my photography class, Professor Foley wasn’t there. It was odd because he is never late and always early. So we waited and ten minutes went by, then fifteen, then twenty and we got worried. This was completely unlike him, especially since we had a paper due and a test to take. So we tried calling him, no answer. We then contacted the rest of the art department and another professor got the police to check on him. They found and he was very disoriented and unwell. They took him to the hospital where they found he had a high fever and an infection. He is still in the hospital to my knowledge but is getting better. He was still kind of out of it and he has some memory loss but hopefully he will be better and back at it soon. Apparently the infection may have come from when he was bitten by a dog while trying to protect his dog, Sophie. It was very scary but he should be better soon. Keep this great guy in your thoughts and prayers.
Today during photography we went out and shot some photos as a class. I normally don’t like shooting with lots of people, but I’m getting used to it. It does help me to be more comfortable shooting while people watch and focus on you. I got this shot while our professor was talking. He is a huge part of the reason of why I decided to got to Marian. If you haven’t ever heard of him he’s worth looking up. He has done some amazing things, seen some amazing things and shot a lot of amazing photos. And I love that I have the opportunity to learn from someone like him.
