Despite everything that had happened, after two weeks of resting around the house, I couldn't help but go through photography withdrawal. (You just can't keep your passion at bay for long!) But what kind of project could be fresh and appealing from the confines of my home? I called for some inspiration from some of my favorite photog lady friends - the SOAR Sisters - and they didn't disappoint. Ajira suggested I snap some photos from where I lay, all of different things. This was the perfect idea! I usually am such a technically obsessed photographer, but decided to throw it all out the window. Bye, bye decisions regarding focus, white balance, ISO, and other relatively important considerations. The result? It was freeing and produced images unlike anything I've ever shot.
Kelli suggested I attempt a self portrait....... I gave that much consideration and decided to give it an honest try. That was definitely the scariest moment of the day, but I am happy that I took her up on the challenge. I think it helped to remind to myself that yes, ma'am, I am a kickass chick.
So what is next? I've got people and events to photograph, images to edit, portfolios to freshen, and lots of life to live. I've got myself a huge list of things to do and a promise that I will take them slow. Oh! And a wedding to finish planning and attend in a little more than a month. (My own!) There is so much to be excited about! I am a very lucky girl.
