Your Best Advice

 

I figure the hardest thing about being a photographer would be the originality part. Well for me anyways.  I think it stems back to the time when I was told as a child to color inside the lines! Damn teachers! Lol!

I went with Jake this morning to my grandma’s house. She’s got some really rustic stuff out there and I showed him around. With my Grandma’s approval of course. Afterwards he showed me a little around CS5. I’m movin on up! Ya, tried to put a texture on the next pic. No go. Have no idea what I’m doing! Ahhhh….what’s new though?

What a wonderful day of learning what I’m interested in! Yay for fun learning! We talked about the business of going into business for yourself. I’m have a degree in Business, but it has to be so scary to take that plunge! I’m good taking pics of my kiddo’s and friends just for fun. I would LOVE to try my hand at newborn photography though! Just for fun of course. I could never charge anyone for what I’m doing :)!

Later in the day we went over to Honey (my mom) and Grandpa’s house. Last weekend my mom was watering the plants in their courtyard when a bird flew out of one and nearly scared her half to death. I took half of the batch a couple of days ago and picked up the rest today since she never came back. I’m pretty sure they are quail eggs (thanks boss), but not sure they will ever hatch. Poor guys!

I’m really working hard to try to improve but there are so many ways, I’m not sure where to start. Still constantly thinking of composition and light. I had to restrain myself until the end of the day to take photo’s hehe.

I asked Jake today what was the best advice about photography he had ever been given was. Now I want to hear from you. Tell me what turned that lightbulb on for you!

Flying in a Jet Plane

 

Lets start with the devil you see above. I just wanted to show everyone the look I usually get when taking his pictures. Ahhhh….that’s a look that will conquer the hearts of all of those that he comes into contact with. NOT! Bahaha. He definitely has a personality.

You know what Roman got to do this morning? Yep he went flying. I have one of the coolest jobs on base. I get to meet a ton of people.  One of these people owns the tow company for the gliders at the airport and offered to let Roman go on a flight with him.

That’s super cool! For Roman!!! I on the other hand am not a fan of flying. The smaller the plane, the worse I get. So instead Sal got to go with him.  Inyokern is known for its bumpy take-offs and landings. It sits right against the valley’s mountains, and its always frikin windy here!

Pretty cool day if I do say so myself!
