One is sewing. I haven't ever used it in a process to apply to my own work, but after spending time with Kay I can totally get a sense of how it can be a cathartic but productive process. Kay has a very soft sense that comes both literally through in her trapunto-pillow process and in the atmosphere of a very homey, nostalgic sense of her work.
The other is screen printing. A process I had never before been familiar with, I had only dreamed about being comfortable with the process. But after working with Kay I have discovered many things about the process that I both had anticipated, and some things that were surprising to me indeed. One surprise was just the simple fact of how much of a process it really is! I quickly came to realize the expense and need for a specific space to do effective screen printing at all.

I usually sit with Nicolette as she works within one of the studios. I think I may finally be getting used to the constant firing of strobe lights going on. This day there was a stills shoot for Calvin Klein going on. Every so often one of the stylists would approach Nicolette with a question like how a certain belt needs to be shot, and Nicolette either answers their question, or contacts her contact at CK since they obviously know their own products much better. I got to sit with Nicolette and watch as she completed various lines off her to-do list. I've found listing is a very useful tool for her, as it is for me as well. I've found through watching it's a really great tool for professionals who have a lot on their plates to stay very organized.
Nicolette completed various tasks like sending out call sheets and invoices, and I watched her as she booked cast and studio space for upcoming shoots. It was all very interesting to watch, this whole production aspect of a photo shoot. She really is the brains behind gathering and organizing the whole production so it runs smoothly.
After lunch it was time for me to complete a task I worked on last week, updating the Target model binders. Through brief lessons and working on excel so much the past 3 times I've been in, i'm finally growing comfortable with excel, a program I have never used before. But I think knowing this program will prove to be very helpful in the professional world. It was finally time to print the worksheets I had worked on and put together a new binder.
After much confusion on how to print from excel, I felt accomplished when I finally figured it out- slightly harder than you'd imagine. Once I finished up I even had some time to watch what the IT was doing on set. For a still life shoot there's a photographer and a tech. I found myself very curious as to what the tech did, and was excited to look on and learn a bit. Can't wait to see what next week has in store!
