Initial Thoughts About Internship in Dubai
Ok, so this internship is NO JOKE! Today was my first day here and I learned about the physics of photography-light, optics, theories, Indian history of light, Greek history of light, shadows, non-point shadows, fog shadows, and the list goes on. We had to analyze several pictures and objects as well as create our own layout of a calendar month representing Dubai. Tons of reading and writing. I feel like I am back at school. I am still very tired/jet lagged from the 8 hour change in time and the weather here is about 110-120 degrees. We are also in the middle of a sand storm, so it looks really sandy and the cars, buildings and sidewalk all have sand on them. In Boston we worry about the snow, here they worry about the sand and the little lizards. I will write more later, for now just know that I am seriously in photography heaven or hell, however you want to look at it!!!
