Shooting For Fun…Again
May 14, 2012 § Leave a comment
Yesterday was beautiful…temperature in the 70’s and “wall-to-wall” sunshine. I was about to spend the day cleaning my studio, but when my son announced he was going to one of the local parks, I grabbed my camera and went with him. Hard decision…cleaning a winter’s worth of junk, or shooting stuff for the fun of it…what to do, what to do? If you’ve been following this blog lately you know I’ve been doing a lot of studio stuff here lately…light painting, soft light, still life, etc. All of it geared toward my commercial work. Anyhow, I went with my son and had a blast. I was watching some kids trying to catch stuff…fish, frogs, snakes, and a lot of seaweed…o.k. they weren’t really trying to catch the seaweed, but that’s what they kept coming up with! These kids presented so many great images. I could have stood there all day shooting them…until I turned around and saw a family of geese. It seemed like these geese were professional models. Every time I thought I had a great shot, they did something even better. Not only was I able to relax and have fun with my camera, but I spent some real quality time with my son. I was starting to get really burned out lately dealing with the business aspects of photography, but a day like this really is the perfect medicine…now back to estimates, licensing, copyrights and all the other things we have to deal with…my batteries are fully charged!
I do have a couple of light painting images to show…maybe next time.
