In the last few weeks I haven’t posted much on here because I just haven’t been very happy with my work. Someone once told me that you can only judge someone’s work after they have spent over a month there. After that the newness of the place wears off. I feel like I’ve definitely fallen victim to that idea. I’ve struggled with assignments that were just not visual as hard as you tried to be creative. 

These five images are, what I feel, my best stand alone daily images from these four weeks. And honestly that is sad. However, last night I was able to put my heart into a video shoot and I feel like I did a good job. Sometimes all it takes is one good assignment to change the momentum. 

Thanks for stopping by. 

Love,

Nikki
