A blog to show the ups and downs of Sam Gause's journey through college and photography.
I know that it may not surprise anyone, but I never attended prom. Back in the day, I called it an act of rebellion and I thought down on all those that spent so much time and effort on one night of their lives. Of course, that was just an excuse not to go out of my comfort zone, but that’s beside the point. This was my first prom and it opened my eyes. Don’t get me wrong, grinding looks as dumb as ever, but I had a good time.
I believe it was Capa that said, “If your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” That is something I need to work on. In my mind, this is done through getting to know your subjects as well as possible, while also letting them get to know you. In the meantime, here are some recent photos.
