“The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves it in nothing.”- Eugene Delacroix

They say that practice makes perfect… But can any creative skill be mastered by the simple act of practicing for hours, days, weeks, years? Does practicing over and over guarantee perfection?

The dreaded question: Practically every time I tell people I am graduating from an MFA program I get the question: “What are you going to do with that?” and my answer is usually “um…” While it’s a valid question the undertone is more about why I would choose to go for an advanced degree in the arts. The question implies that an MFA is not only a waste of time and money, but an endeavor that won’t provide anything worthwhile. The question irritates me because of the implications it has, and because I don’t have a good elevator pitch. And I can’t help but wonder if those pursuing an MBA get asked the same thing as often.

Are you a professional? Different people define professional in different ways. For some, being a professional means making money from their art. For others it’s more about the attitude they have towards their work. While I have always considered myself a professional by both of these definitions, I had no idea I was making such a big mistake when it came to how I approach my art.

Food photography can be quite simple if you have a beautiful subject. It took great willpower for me to wait to eat these until I was done with the photos but they were so pretty there was no way I was going to leave them un-photographed. Warning: don’t read this post if you are trying to diet. This is a very delicious blog post.
