In Oklahoma

So I finally was able to make it back home to Oklahoma.  Not sure of how long I will be here, but I hope that I will be able to get some photography in in the process of being here.  I know I have a couple friends here that are wanting me to do some shots and I look forward to doing them.  I was able to get out and take a few on Christmas day of my kids, but mostly of my youngest daughter since she loves to be photographed.  Snow is a tricky one to shoot in after being in nothing but rain and sunshine.  Snow is new to me in the photography sense. Well that is all for now until I'm able to get out more....probably won't be until after the first for me to get some shots in.

Crappy Weather turned great....

Well that photo shoot I was suppose to do on the 13th ended up getting canceled.  Sucks because I was looking forward to it.  But there was suppose to be thunder shower's moving in and hitting about the time I was to take the pictures.  But of course we canceled and the day was beautiful.  Guess we should have just tried anyways and took our chances.  But to late now. 

On a good note, I do have other shoots starting to come into place once I'm in Oklahoma.  So I'm looking forward to the possible experiences there. :) I am thankful that my life has been truly blessed with the skills I have and the once I will obtain with practice and experiences..

Well, that is all there is for now.

Bad Weather for Outdoor Pics

So last weekend I had my neighbor from previous pics do my family pics for me.  I loved them, but it was chilly out.  Now I'm suppose to do some family pictures tomorrow, and here we go again with crappy weather.  It is suppose to rain all day long, so it looks like I'm not going to be able to get that photo shoot done.  I was truly looking forward to it for the experience of doing a family that isn't a major close friend that I see all the time.  So it stings a bit to not get to experience it.  Oh well...hopefully once I'm in Oklahoma I can do some photography and have the ability to experience it.  Ta Ta For Now!

Well, was finally able to make it out and do a photo shoot with my soon to be 12 year old and a friend.  Truly enjoyed doing the shots that I did get.  Found some railroad tracks and just had some fun.  Would have been more fun if I wouldn't have been so cold from the wind and trying to steady the camera and not fall over. It was a bit of work...but well worth it in the end.  I did realize though that my fall back when it comes to doing photo shoots is that I blank out when having the people pose but not looking over posed.  But at least I am learning and growing with each photo shoot I've been able to do.  I want my work to be my own and not look like everyone else's shots...but with so many people in the business now days...that is really a tough one.  Anyways, I did enjoy it and now I have to come up with some ideas for the family that I will be doing on the 13th!!! :) Super excited!

Family Photos

So I've been trying to get into doing more family photos. Which I did do some a few weeks ago and truly enjoyed it. The family I was able to do were friends and thankfully they were patient with me since I'm new at this whole photography thing. But I do have another photo shoot on the 13th of December that I'm kind of nervous about. I've not yet done outside of close friends but I think as long as I let them know how I work and find out what they want I will be OK. :) I do know it would be better if I was able to get out more, but with having a 3 year old home all the time, it isn't easy just to get out and go do photo shoots. But one day I hope that I am much better than I am now.

Just another Day

Well, so far, not off to a daily start on my blogging for photography...but at the same time, there isn't much to write about.

So with that being said, I need to get out and do more photos. I know I have a few friends that are wanting me to do their photos for them, as well as I want my neighbor to do family photos for me with my camera. She does great all ready, and she is just a teen. I can't wait to see what kind of work she has in the future if she sticks with photography.

Anyways, with me knowing I have to get more photos and more experience, I don't really have much to work with at the moment for my writing, so....ta ta for now.

Ok, so here goes nothing...I've decide to start this blog, and hope to keep up with it for my photography.

I had started schooling through Art Institute. I dropped because financially at the moment I can't afford it. Also, I feel in my heart of hearts, that if I am to be a great and inspiring photographer, I should be able to figure it out on my own. And with figuring it out, I think I will feel better and more accomplished with my own success. After all, I have some friends and family that does enjoy my work. But at the same time, I do realize that I need practice and more work before I can feel comfortable charging anyone much for the pictures that I have taken.

In the end though, I still want my photography to be enjoyed, not cringed at for prices that to me have always been over charged. But at the same time, I know I have to be able to afford the equipment in the future. I have learned that lenses and lighting are not cheap by any means.

Over all though I enjoy what I do, and I never want to lose that feeling of pure delight when someone sees the picture through my eyes and loves the art behind it. I want to find a way to make shots 100% mine yet still have others love them like I do. My photography is like my own children. Loved and cared for in each their own ways.
