I’ve been quiet for a while, but that does not mean nothing’s up. It’s exactly the opposite! Sadly, most of the things that are up are day job related, so I can’t talk much about it here. Not that it’s that interesting anyway, to be honest. But I’ve haven’t had much time for anything else.
I’ve started so many posts lately and realized they’ve all been about the weather, the winter or how tired I am. I even bored myself, writing them, so I just didn’t post anything. Maybe it’s not so strange that those subjects are on my mind so much; it’s been a long winter and everyone seems to be on their last stretch, conserving the last ounces of energy before spring.
But we’ve come to a point when sunrise doesn’t happen AFTER I go to work and sunset before I leave. It’s March! March IS a spring month, even if it doesn’t know it.
Spring means more natural light, which is good for any aspiring photograph, and I am itching to dig in to some of the portrait ideas I have planned. Some of my friends have already been courteous enough to agree to let me use them as guinea pigs (thanks guys!). Generally I just want to get out and practice, and I’m thinking I should just make a list and focus on one thing a time (like: use only this specific lens one day, or try reflecting light for a couple of shots, or panning and motion, etc). Some day down the road I hope I will actually have more confidence, and specifically more control, when I take photos.
