Who IS this girl

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” -Ansel Adams

What’s going on world! My name is Lauren Guzman and I am a sophomore studying Public Relations at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. This is my first attempt at blogging so bear with my mistakes. Actually, feel free to critique them as I aspire to drastically improve along the way. No worries about any hard feelings here. I’ve realized that the wise words of “kill them with kindness” never fails to irritate the irrational. Regardless,ย I appreciate any advice you avid bloggers out there may have! Basically, this sneak peek into the imaginative mind of yours truly will be focused on my journey through the art of photography. From my origins in the Polaroid sticky film days (you 90’s kids know what I’m talking about) to hopefully one day a piece of work that would impress Nigel Barker!

  1. I am lucky enough to actually know Lauren Guzman! She’s such a perky and quirky little girl who I fear will evolve into a fabulous photographer and become my competition! Lauren- you have what it takes and I’m excited to see how you’ll grow!

  2. I’m going to criticize constructively. What camera do you use?

    • Well JoshuaAwesomeManMiller, that depends. If you are asking what kind of camera I used to shoot this video, it was my 13 inch Macbook webcam in lighting that wasn’t ideal but it worked. If you meant what type of camera do I use to take the photos in my previous posts, that was a Kodak EasyShare M341.

  3. I am currently in that same state as you with photography! I have a really nice camera, Canon 50D, however I am lost on the shooting part. I hope to learn a whole bunch from following your blog.. Good Luck

    • Emily, you should seriously just spend an afternoon playing around with your camera! I looked into what a Canon 50D is capable of and missy you are incredibly lucky! Hopefully this weeks’ post can inspire you to get out there and start shooting (with your camera of course!) ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Lauren! Love the video! You were so natural in front of the camera! I don’t have a problem talking to a camera, but I found it very different talking to myself on my computer. I never knew you’re dad was a photographer; makes sense now why you’re interested in doing it. You should definitely bring some of those old cameras laying around in your house to class sometime! Or just show me haha

    • Thanks Derek! Truth be told, this is probably my 500th take! I seriously underestimated how difficult a 1:40 video would be to accomplish. I’ll probably post the bloopers later just for the fun of it. (As hard as this is for me to say, I might have to give you broadcast students a bit more credit…) But if I can find space in my Mary Poppins bag, I’ll definitely bring them in some day ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Lauren this was a fabulous intro video! I haven’t read your blog yet but this video motivates me to follow it and invites me join your journey of learning how to be a good photographer. I am looking forward to your work. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Wow, thank you Nidah! I’m glad this video can bring such encouragement in only one minute and 40 seconds! I only hope I can live up to the expectations I’ve brought to my blogs’ followers ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. This is awesome Lauren! I’ll definitely check up for updates! Love it girl and all that you are doing!
