Shoot Something….Anything!

January 29, 2009

logan_tvBeing a wedding photographer is awesome!  I get to meet a lot of great people and share the joys of their special day.  I love to watch a bride and groom smile as they view their wedding photos that I shot for them.  I find it very self gratifying.

I became a wedding photographer just a few short years ago.  What started as a hobby is slowly becoming a new career.  I started by working for a well known local studio to “learn the tricks of the trade”.  I quickly found that there is MUCH more to wedding photography than anticipated.  I already knew how to shoot well, or so I thought, but had never actually shot a wedding.  Before going into business for myself, I thought it would probably be a good idea to get some actual weddings under my belt first.  I mean, who the hell is going to hire a photographer to shoot their wedding when they have never actually shot a wedding?

After spending a few years with the studio and getting those weddings under my belt, I have decided that now is the time to go into business for myself.  All the planning has commenced and I am slowly getting things going.  Planning packages, designing a web site, advertising and everything else involved with starting your own business.

With all of this planning and designing going on, I have noticed that I haven’t been shooting anything.  LOL  I haven’t picked up my camera since Christmas!  I’m going to use this post as a friendly reminder to shoot something….anything every day or at LEAST every other day.  Nothing in particular, just SOMETHING.  I started this morning actually.  I got my camera, strapped on my trusty 50mm lens and started looking around the house for SOMETHING to shoot.  Preferably something of interest but not mandatory.  I walked into the living room and found my four year old son watching Spongebob most comfortably so I shot him.  Errrr….took a photo of him.  🙂

    I really like the angle of this and the way his feet are totally in focus and as you pan up, it goes out.

    Well now you know. LOL As time goes on, I’m sure I will divulge more about myself probably on my “About” page that I STILL haven’t updated. 🙂

    Stay tuned Luisa….more photos to come.

    The depth of field is great. I love photographing children – they make the best subjects.

    Children do make the best subjects!
