>I heard a great statement the other day that pretty much summed me up to a T at the moment. It was the basic fact that you can’t wait around for the perfect brief, the dream shoot or location. What you have, is what is around you. For me-this is the people in my midst. The locations that I am near and the equipment that I have. As the year is coming to and end, and the new one is approaching I am looking back at the humble few months that have passed. I have completed a few personal challenges and made new friends in the industry.
With the remaining days left of the year, I intend to take more pictures. Hone in on my skills. And learn more from my mistakes. It’s a beautiful time of the year, and I intend to remember it. My way. With Love.
>Last night I was able to help my friend Steve with a photo shoot that he was doing for a Leather Shop – NextOne. Even though I wasn’t actually taking the shots, the experience was invaluable. Learning how to set up shop, set the lights, work with the light meter and see how the pros doo! Sets don’t have to be stuffy and boring and full of direction, they can be fun, relaxed, spontaneous and completely enjoyable! I was getting the insight on how to make the most of your setting and capturing the personality of your models on camera, not an easy task.
But it was fun, and didn’t seem like work and the few hours that we were there went fast. I adjusted a collar or two here, corrected a stance somewhere else and threw snow for effect at the end. All in all, I think I had the hardest job.
