I am not the worlds best writer nor am I too keen on getting grammar or spelling correct…truthfully, I could care less; however, mom would definitely show me the mean face if I did not at least make an effort. (thank you spell check) None the less, over time you will notice that how I type is actually how I speak. I often use ”...” in place of a comma, a sentence break, or to simulate a continuation of something…I am sure that I use it for other things as well, but we will get to that later.
Somedays, I get burned out on shooting yet have a burning desire to shoot. Has that ever happened to you? To me that is a sure sign that I am in a rut of some sorts and that I need a change of pace. Maybe I have been shooting too many models. Maybe my work is getting cookie cutter from repetition of doing the same old shoots over and over. Well when I get that feeling of restless abandon I tend to go and shoot something completely unexpected and often unexpected to myself as well. If I have been shooting a lot of people, then I will go shoot landscapes or architecture or something out of the ordinary. But what if that doesn’t satisfy the burning desire? What if that doesn’t calm the restlessness? I have seen it quite a few times over the past 10 years of me shooting as a full time photographer. That is when I have to take a step back and settle myself. I need to find out what exactly it is that is bugging me. More often than not, I rind that it is frustration that is driving me nuts. Frustration with not having access to the proper tools that I need to create a certain project. Be that access to models, make up and hair stylists, and most often that is access to proper wardrobe styling and locations.
