Have you ever felt like you are doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing in life? I have been reflecting on my experience second shooting throughout the past week. Collectively, I worked for about 20 hours. I am thinking that I shot for […]
Don’t you just love it when you feel empowered? You feel carefree, focused, energized and productive? You feel like your creativity is flowing, is making waves and all you can do is try to get what is in your mind out fast enough so that you don’t forget it! Welcome to the adrenaline that is inspiration. Years ago I wrote down in an old journal/planner something that has stuck with me and come back to me everytime I am in creating mode. I wrote down in the process of writing a song or something that inspiration comes in waves, so you better learn how to surf.
Inspiration comes in waves, so you better learn how to surf
Have you ever had a brilliant thought as you lay in bed about to go to sleep? You think to yourself, oh I should write this down but you’re half asleep and you don’t want to turn on the light and jot down whatever you’re thinking about because then you’ll be awake and you’re trying to sleep! You wake up in the morning thinking what was that great idea that I had last night? I can’t remember, oh well, I should’ve written it down. Well, that my friends, is inspiration. Sometimes it comes sporadically, sometimes it comes frequently. You have periods when it is constantly present or it makes a rare appearance. It comes in waves. Sometimes the waters are calm, sometimes there’s a hurricane and you better take cover ( and by take cover, I mean write down everything you think of!). Inspiration comes in waves, maybe small or maybe large but if you want to capitalize on your moment of inspiration, learn to surf.
Surfing is FIERCE,
Have you ever been in love? Head over heels, can’t stop thinking about them, can’t find any reason to not spend all of your free time and then some more time with that one special person type of feeling? Because if you would like to experience that I suggest getting a Canon 60D. I love this camera and I don’t even know or understand how to fully work it yet! I mean like totally in my most hipster voice. It’s beautiful. I am so happy that this is the camera I am using to get started. It’s…dare I say, perfect?
Tyler and I were in Dallas a few weekends ago and that was the weekend following when I got my camera. Of course I had shot a few things here and there (tree branches from my balcony) but I hadn’t gotten a chance to really shoot with my new love (camera). We were at a conference type thing at a hotel and behind the hotel was an office park and winding between the office park was a pond with a bridge and fountain and ducks were swimming in it! And because it is an office park they obviously pay for sprinklers because everything was so green! I was loving it! I think my love loved it too…
Peek a boo! It’s Izze!
The pond where I was shooting was very picturesque! I have noticed that I look at places in term of whether or not it would be a good place to shoot.
Fiercely shooting everything,
My adventures with my Canon A-1 have finally hit a good note! The first roll of film that I took to get developed was blank, the developer said. The second roll of film was half blank with only 4 or 5 photos able to be developed and they were baaad. Far too dark type of bad. Finally! I was able to get a roll developed as in 12 prints! Ha! Where the other 12 shots went I am not sure but I am so happy that I finally have some shots worthy of sharing!
Without further ado…
Baby love! My sweet little gal is a great model! Besides the first 3 photos with the gorgeous lighting that I shared above, the rest are way too dark but I’m learning and hopefully tomorrow or whenever I am shooting next I will remember what I was doing for those shots and can replicate it! Part of me thinks I was just shooting when it was too dark outside and I didn’t have a flash. Ahh well, learnings.
Fiercely counting down the days until I can purchase my digital camera,
