School is Started and so has the drama

Oh ok I need someplace I can talk about the stuff going on in my life... and this seems a good a place as any... perhaps you can take away something from my life and not make the same mistakes I tend to make HEHE.

So here’s the story,
I’m in two photography classes this semester (and a writing, a math, and an acting class but these aren’t important) in my IMAG112 class we are learning portrait techniques and we get to bring in models (or do the work at home) and develop pictures in the darkroom (yay its not gonna be gone till next semester). I did the photo I will soon be talking about at home in my portrait studio.

Any way there’s this kid Dave who thinks he’s this big artist... yet he’s never sold a single print (I’ve sold lots) and he’s never own any national awards for his work (I’ve won 2 gold and 1 silver metal at national scholastics), and he’s kind of a prick and when I’m faced with that attitude I become a prick right back, its basically a alpha male vs alpha male thing.

Well I was working on a portrait I took of a girl I know (friend of my gf) she was nude (not uncommon ground for me to do) and she was laying down on a black back drop, I used a painters light to make her left side almost pure white, no flaws visible and almost no detail... her right side had shadows, you could see many details including a birth scar.

Any way my instructor loved it... showed it to the whole class and was very impressed with it... and then Dave (the prick) stands up and right out calls me a plagerousit (SP?)! He tried to claim that he was working on a similar picture, and claimed I stole his idea... after much yelling in the class with a few choice words (how dare he insult me in such a fashion!). The instructor decided that because Dave had no evidence that he was planning a similar picture that mine was original, and I was allowed to keep my photo and turn it in for our assignment.

I just don’t get some people... why does he have to do this kind of stuff?
I know I’ve never heard him talk about anything like this... I listen to my Ipod while in class and working in the dark room... there’s no way I could have heard him.

I just hate this kid... there’s no way I’d ever let it grow into a physical argument... But sometimes I just want to hit that kid with my tripod...
Thanks for letting me vent.
You guys have a nice night.

Yeah, there's a couple of kids in some of my classes...not to that extreme, but they take credit for other people's work, and the teachers see them doing their homework for another class.

I just try to ignore them

LOL, no I’m in college, 2nd year... but this stuff never ends for me... Either I just have this kind of luck... or I bring it out in people... might be the ladder.

I have one of those personalities that either you love me or you hate me… also for those that hate me; I just rub the wrong way… I don’t have to say anything to make them hate me. Hmmm who knows.

That sounds like alot like a situation that happened with me in my pottery class. I've had alot of my work entered in art shows and won quite often. Some girl got mad and was saying that I shouldn't be allowed to enter the shows because I've won before and I needed to give other people a chance, blah blah...

I would just ignore him. It's obvious he's jealous of your talent. You shouldn't have to prove yourself to everybody. Your pictures will speak for themselves and everyone will realize he's just being a jerk.

It's really awesome that your into photography. I love photography, I'm not all that great at it, but I can appreciate all the work that goes into it. Do you have a website with some of your work?

TFK - He's probably just pissed cuz:

a) you clearly rock his socks when it comes to photography
b) you're probably getting better marks
c) he can't get any girls to pose nude for him
d) he probably grew up getting what he wanted, and being the teachers bitch...ahem...pet, and isn't enjoying watching someone else being in the spotlight.

IMHO, ignore this ****er. Obviously the teacher knows that you have produced quality work before, and will take your word over his. I mean yeah, I'm sure it's a royal pain in the ass, but sometimes it's better to let shit slide, and this is probably one of those times. He isn't worth the bother.

No offense, but to me it sounds like there's a hidden agenda to show off in this thread as much as there is to tell the story.
