Wow, where do I start? I’ve completed two shoots since my last post. The first shoot was for my son’s soccer team. I did my youngest son’s official team shots. They’re pretty nice. I did myself proud and the parents are happy. I didn’t make any money, but then again, I don’t do this for the money.
Well, if it’s not for the money, why do I do this? Truthfully? Therapy. This is my way of getting over my feelings for my wedding photos. Yes, I’m still sore, because I can’t take back the day to get good pictures at this point. I’m learning photography to help myself figure out exactly what it takes to make bad pictures. So far, I’ve come up with gross neglect. I’ve been learning so much in this process that I truly believe that anyone who takes photos to earn money and has no earthly idea about what they’re doing (other than pressing the shutter) is guilty of gross neglect and is just plain old selfish. There. I said it.
So anyways……… I did an AMAZING shoot on Sunday. I made Pregnancy Portraits for a friend, and I have to say, I’m impressed! Natural light does amazing things for a photo. AMAZING things. I reckon it’s time to connect with my inner strobist.
