About ME! Troy Grudin (troygrudinmediaarts)

Welcome to my Media Arts Blog!  Let me introduce myself.  My name is Troy Grudin and I study Multimedia Design at Lane Community College in Eugene Oregon.  My professional goals in this field are in Photography and Video Production.  My dream career would be to photograph and or video Sports and Music Events, anything with people in action.  I would likely need a “day job” to make ends meet.  Even if it’s not in the media arts.

This might sound weird but even though I don’t really play video/computer games.  I’m kind of fascinated by them.  I see them as a form of story telling by both the producer of the game and its players.

I might be in the minority with this opinion.  However I prefer color over black and white photography.  Particular in capturing events and moments.  I see photography not only as an art form, but also as a form of documentation.  The more accurately you can document an event the better.  I’m not arguing that black and white is bad.  My favorite photo not taken by myself is black and white. tumblr_mbdnawTEX51qm9rypo1_1280  (Hy Peskin Carmen Basilio after beating Tony DeMarco).  I’m interested to see where technology is going to take us.  It seems that things are getting smaller and easier to use.  This means that  more people will be able to express themselves creatively.  I think those of us looking for careers in the media arts.  We should embrace this.  It means we must produce quality and it gives a chance to pass our wisdom down.
