Last year at around this time...I posted about how I was going to post more on my blog...well that never happened. There are good reasons for it...my photography business has grown very nicely and I've simply been busy. I barely get the time to do a session, edit it, provide the gallery to the client, get photos retouched, post them to social media and move on to the next client. But I miss blogging and I think it serves an important purpose in the life of an artist.
I don't like writing.....that's the problem with a blog for me. I don't like writing. I like to post my photos on my blog but i don't like writing about them or about me or about what I'm doing. I even thought maybe I would make the blog more informational. Like maybe I'll post photos from a session and then explain how I worked...what did I do...what camera settings did I use....how did I retouch...but that doesn't always appeal to me either. So I think I'm going to play it by ear...I will post photos...sometimes I won't say anything about them....sometimes I will.....if I think there is something to learn from them, then maybe I'll explain it. We'll see but I will post!
Some things have changed in my business this year. I still work for Wagner College Theatre by doing all their publicity and shooting their shows. I also do some other work for them like doing their senior showcase photos, and shooting their Summer Intensive Student's headshots.
I morphed into more of a headshot photographer this year and I really like that. I love doing headshots....I like seeing the person I am working with come up with different outfits, different looks, helping them relax into the session and I love seeing the results and hearing afterward that they are getting more calls from their headshots than they are before. I had been staying away from children and family photography for a while but recently had the opportunity to do some of those sessions and found that I missed it....a lot...and so there's that. I am also working for Sundog Theatre doing an after school program where we produce a newspaper for the school and I teach photojournalism to 4th and 5th graders while they fulfill photography assignments for the newspaper....it's very rewarding and fun! So I'm busy!
Here are some photos from this year....just sort of a retrospective! Enjoy!
