Self Portriat

So, I've been inspired to get my strobes back out and learn how to better use them. I got them in December 2004, but after we moved in May 2005 they just sat in the box until last month. There wasn't really room to get them out in the apartment. I did get more proficient with natural light during that time period, though, so I at least I was still growing in some aspect.

After being in Pearland for close to a year now (wow - has it really been that long?) my photography business is really beginning to pick up again. I'm excited about it, because I really enjoy taking portraits! It's so much fun. It's also a challenging hobby. I read once that playing a musical instrument was good for gifted children because not only is it mathematical, it's something you can always get better at... you never master it & there's always room for growth. I think photography is the same way. Just when I feel like I have something down - a lighting technique, a specific pose, a camera setting - whatever - suddenly something else pops up that I need to work on. The more you know, the more you realize how much you don't know!

Oh well. I'll keep on plugging. =)
