It is finalized, I am going to be a wedding photographer My new website is under construction and I can’t tell you how excited I am for this new adventure!!
You might ask how I know, that it is the right thing for me to do?
Well, yesterday I was surfing the web about all different aspects of photography and found some great advice, that goes perfectly with my poem by Mark Twain. Setting goals, living the dream, exploring, saying good bye to the shores of shelter..
The one article that talked about setting goals also talked about getting to know your gear. That kinda hit me hard. Of course I know my camera, I don’t use auto-anything and my pictures come out nice and people like them. Think again Miss!
Somehow this gave me the energy to take out my camera and I ventured out into manual mode and some menu settings. I played around for a while, exploring my sweet black baby and was amazed how much more I can get out of my camera!!! Seriously, have you ever used manual mode? I never did and I can’t believe how much control I have over my pictures now!!
Here a few samples, no Photoshop involved (other than resizing for web use of course..) and remember, these are my very first pics, using manual mode..
Nope, not even adjusted the colors, this is all straight from the camera, even the black and white!
I learned two new things and I have found my old passion for photography once again! That is why I know that I am good enough to go out there, make myself vulnerable and get started! Sure, I might crash hard, but I know it is the right thing to do at the right time. Sometimes you just know.
Now we only need a way to solve the financial part of the project… Camera gear adds up quickly, especially if you have certain standards
PS: I promise to post something scrappy tomorrow
