Writer's Block: School Ties

What is (or was) your college major? Do you use it for your career?


photography. i don't use anything i learned in school even tho i am still a photographer. first off, the film to digi industry conversion knocked out half of my knowledge. secondly, the skills they teach you in a photography degree range from near useless to fully in an actual production environment. about the only thing i do that is the same as i learned in school is press the shutter button.
I have a BFA in photography too! The best part is that I went to the awesome urban-style Ga State Univ to get it. Not an art school, although they had an accredited graduate program for fine arts, but it was like this one little building in a sea of high rises devoted mainly to MBAs and tech students. I hated it. The whole was terrible. The amount of photo jobs I've done for money is about 5. And those were all while I was in school, trying to make a little money doing business portraits or commercial advertising type stuff. So horrid. Now I use my iphone all the time and I love it. I take pictures of my dog and my manicure. Minipixel is the best!
