Okay, maybe “photo boss” is a bit much, but it sure sounds intense, and in the right kind of way… ;P
Anyway, so I did the senior portraits for someone the other week – remember that?
(Maybe not, but let’s continue as though you do.)
Using the money from that, I invested in a new lens I’d wanted for a while (which has a high likelihood of earning me menu for a certain kind of photography rather soon, consistently), and in a second memory card that will be extremely useful as I do more and more photo sessions, and in an external hard drive exclusively for photos (since they take up loads of space, now that I’m doing the RAW files and all).
And – possibly the best part – I still have a bit of the money to spare, even after buying myself a huge tank of gas for the truck (the vehicle a family friend has lent me, so that I can go longer distances reliably, instead of only short distances, and unreliable so).
Isn’t that great?
Of course, the photos turned out totally awesome – I’m super proud!
So, yeah… I’m really happy about these steps I’m taking.
It really makes a difference to declare that I am doing this. 🙂
I made an actual account and page tonight for my photography… someone asked me today, if I had an Instagram account for it, and so I made one…
I haven’t put any photos on it yet, but I did create it… and that’s already a big step for me. 😛
So, we’ll see how this goes, now, shall we?
The next step, I guess, is figuring out what photos to put on the account, and then to put them there already!
Sounds so easy…
Only slightly terrifying, of course…
I took portraits for someone this evening.
I have no certainty as to how they turned out.
They looked quite decent on the camera screen, though, and I also know that I have learned lots about settings for the camera, and that I have a very high likelihood of having good photos in there, if not spectacular ones, anyway.
I am excited to find out… 🙂
Bedtime for now, though… delayed gratification is so much better than delayed disappointment, so let’s hope I have the former, eh? 😛
Today, I cried a decent number of times. I was exhausted, and still am (Therefore, I will keep this short.). However, I only want to reference one of the cryings right now.
A student gave me her small piece of art today, after I complimented it to her. As I was gazing at my newly acquired work of art, looking into the face of the person in it, I noticed that tears were starting to brim, and there was nothing to be done about it. It was beautiful, and I was responding in a way I usually do not respond to beauty, though understand and accept fully.
Now, I want that student to do a portrait of me, color and all.
