The other day I got the chance to live a little dream of mine. I am sort of embarrassed about it, because it is really making art and putting it out there to be judged. But I secretly want to be a photographer. My dearest love Megan started a little side business in our nursing unit as the units family photographer. She is so amazingly talented and I lived vicariously through her. Her images are stunning. Check them out. When she moved away recently (tear) I missed not only her but her art. She had done all of our mutual friend Shelly’s pictures for her. Shelly’s son Layton was turning one and she was out a photographer. I asked her if I could try it. Here is the result.
I’m not sure how I feel about how it turned out. I think that some of them have potential. None of them are heart stopping like I really wanted, but I did learn a great deal in this shoot. I got to go through them with my Dad who is a hobby photographer and got some good tips. I learned about using my flash even in the sun so that I get less face shadows. But I want to learn more. I need honest advice and insight so I can improve. Throw it out. Be straight.
And Shells - thanks for letting me start somewhere
