The amount of bargaining that goes on at the end of the semester makes me wonder if some students should switch to pre-law.

Cool beans. I have not played with film since the 90s. Next semester may be a blast for you.... I hope so! :-) It sounds wonderful.

I hope you may teach an honors course sometime, and I hope you touch some lives next semester! :-)

I've had the whole shabang since they started CC. Love it. Of course, I get an educational discount.

I get home after a long day of teaching and staying late to help students, finish editing video for a client, finish processing photos for another client, and think I'm ready to fall into bed. Then I take a look at what Netflix sent me. The Hobbit. Are you kidding me? There will be no sleep tonight.

If I ever win the lottery, I will have a Richter on my wall. I could sit in front of his paintings for hours. In fact, I did once. In Chicago. Pictures don't do them justice. The paint is amazing.

#PLUSpost week3 Lighting With Intent with +Eric Raeber #LightWIT

After shooting for 12 years, I'm finally learning flash. I've been participating in +Eric Raeber's Lighting with Intent Mentorship here on G+. It's been frustrating to say the least, but probably because I keep thinking how much easier it would be to pull out the continuous lighting and be done with it. I must plow through!

This week we had to practice isolating our subject. Black backgrounds are kinda my thing, so I decided to ditch my beloved black velvet and challenge myself. I almost nailed it, but you could still see a tiny bit of the shutters in my living room in the background. We post our images SOOC in the community to better learn, but here I've made just a few tweaks. I cleaned up the little bit of shutter in the background and added a touch of creamy yellow polaroid from Exposure 7. 

I'm starting to get comfortable with the flash. And I'm definitely glad to be shooting again. =D

I think I finally figured out what happened to me.
I stopped telling my story.

Thank you +Zack Arias for the best kick in the arse I could ask for.

I saw this post a couple of days ago but wasn't ready to watch the video. Now that I have, it's a great message and I'm trying to figure out how I can best tell my story and build my community. Thanks for sharing!

I am just a teensy weensy bit excited that I was chosen to be a mentee in +Eric Raeber's Lighting With Intent mentorship. I'm already nervous. 

You know when you learned masking and you thought omg this has changed my life? (Well I did, anyway.) I have a feeling I'm going to say the same thing about finally learning to use my freaking flash.

This. Is. So. On!  Squeeeeeeeeeeee!

Story
Tagline
Artist. I tried to contain myself, but I escaped.
Introduction
  • I'm an artist working mostly with digital (photography, video, etc), but I'm known to paint on occasion (when I want to throw the computer out the window).
  • More formally...  Christi Nielsen is a multimedia artist who works with photography, video, and new media. Her work using mobile devices was shown at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Contemporary, and at the George Pompidou Centre in Paris. Nielsen directed inter.sect Art Collective, a group of artists exploring new media and digital exhibition spaces. 
  • I teach photography at the University of Texas at Dallas.
  • I shoot fine art that deals with social commentary, but I also shoot interiors/real estate and travel.
  • And then there's sass. Gotta have that. I decided there is only so much crazy I can take before I have to start blogging about it. Delusions of Grandeur
Bragging rights
I am my own heroine. According to my mother, I was cool from Day 1.
