It`s been a year, I see since I`ve last posted. After I closed my business in Kamloops after a short and frustrating go at it, I felt very free and unconstrained by not having to please clients. I went out and shot all the time. I also had the beautiful landscape of BC, and lots of people who let me photograph them.
Fast forward ahead more than a year, I`ve since moved back to cold Alberta, where there isn`t as many warm days, shooting outdoors is limited and more of a challenge, and we have since had a baby girl so my free time is greatly decreased.
Our little lady is approaching 6 months, so I am trying to reclaim a bit of time for myself now that she`s a bit less dependent on me than she was in earlier months.
My recent photos are not living up to what I envision them to be. I`m rusty, and out of practice. My eye isn`t as good as it should be when it comes to composition. I sorta suck.
Two recent photography sessions, the fist, indoor images of my daughter, still using natural light were a success for me. I was fairly happy with them.
And then I went out and tried to shoot where I normally do better, outdoors. I am happy with this picture of Dylan, but it is not sharp enough for my liking, and I did not achieve the sort of image I had in my head. The photo of Danica is mediocre at best. Photos of the two of them…. are not fit for sharing unfortunately.
Moral of the story. I need to shoot more, I need to shoot others more, I need to continue my education. I always appreciate constructive criticism from fellow photographers and friends alike.
Thanks for reading.
