Once again I’ve gone a little bit without showing something related to my photography. Not kidding you since the Alice Shoot I’ve been very busy with other work. If you didn’t already know, I work 6 days a week, two jobs, and sometimes work more than 8 hours at a time depending on what I’m doing.
Here’s what I’ve been up to: I’m sure these guys won’t mind, since I don’t think they read my blog anyways.
This was an accidental picture. I don’t even remember taking it. I don’t know why I took it. While at work, after filming a series of video’s for Easter for our Children’s Pastor, I discovered it on my camera card. So this is a flash back from that morning. Pretending to be a news cast, and a device recording the audio which somehow made it into the shot. Again I don’t remember actually doing this. It took me two days to do my part in the video editing process. Lots of hours in front of the computer on Final Cut. This is just part of my job.
Video’d some more this past week at BAM ( Boys Among Men ) ministry at my church. I was told it was going to be a wild time. It was no joke. God is a funny God, because He made boys and girls total opposites. I’m still working on the editing of the video of this event, but for what I’ve seen so far 80% of the footage I recored was of this picture: boys wresting with each other like crazy!
Girls love to be photographed. Well, almost all. On this day the instant I made my appearance many boys gave me a funny look. Skeptical and insecure, 4 different boys came up to me and asked, “What are you doing? Why are you here? Why are you taking our picture?” Funny after it was all over 2 hours later is when many of the boys began to open up and “want” their picture taken.
An off the wall thing: my Gerbera Daisies are blooming!
One more Theme Shoot is in the works! I’m excited to have this time a dress that is currently being custom made. My style is usually dark and moody. However I wanted to have something more elegant and Springy. I haven’t decided if this shoot will be linked to a fairy take yet or not. I’m considering turning it into more of a Fashion Shoot.
I’ll make up my mind later.
