6. Research of personal interest: Vogue Photography

In 1892 Arthur Baldwin Turnure founded Vogue as a weekly publication in the United States.When he died in 1909, Condé Montrose Nast picked up the magazine and slowly began growing its publication. He changed it to a bi-weekly magazine and also started Vogue overseas starting in the 1910s. He first went to Britain in 1916, and started a Vogue there, then to Spain, and then to France in 1920, where it was a huge success. The magazine's number of publications and profit increased dramatically under his management.
Vogue Photography is basically the category of vintage photography that i want to be in.
I would love to take pictures for magazines or commercial advertisements, etc. So it is a very special interest to me. Especially taking pictures of gorgeous models out in the world like they did with Marilyn Monroe.

2. Response to an artist: Frank Ocean

Christopher Francis Ocean.
Also known by: Frank Ocean.
He is one of my top artist that really gets my attention. His music is the best thing that has ever been inside my ears. His album: "Nostalgia" is my favorite! He has written songs for Justin Beiber <3, John Legend, and even Beyonce.
He is as well apart of "OFWGKTA" which is also one of my top. One of my favorite songs from him are: "She" and "Songs for Women"
He also does photography, which is something im interested in.
So, basically, he's the best.
