But I had a cup of Chai today. Blame it on my sore throat from Monday – I’m still in the mode of trying to soothe it. And I gotta say, the Chai wasn’t half bad. Will it become a regular thing? Not likely – but maybe I’ll have a cup now and again, and pretend while I’m sipping it, that I’m a little more refined than I really am :D
I had great time doing this portrait session with Kat & Chris, along with another couple [next blog post!]. Such a cute and fun couple. The light wasn’t the greatest for shooting, but we made it work, finding nice shade where we could. We walked through forested paths, across bridges and across rocks. I even climbed a tree, to get the perfect angle – and it was well worth it :D To see more of Kat & Chris’s Couples Portrait […]
Whoo hoo! I’ve got myself organized. I realized that room in the basement I was using, was just getting to be, too much. Too dark. My eyes aren’t liking it. Too many long hours in artificial light. And then I realised that this other room would work. It’s still in the basement, but at least there’s a small window.
Almost too scared to write ’em out. To voice them. If I do – then I have to accomplish them, right? Or at least try. But then what if I try and I fail? that scares me. But then again, I could try and end up succeeding. Maybe that scares me too.
Portraits are very difficult when it comes to ‘regular’ people. People like me, who don’t necessarily like having their picture taken or who feel uncomfortable in front of the camera. You have to know how to direct people, yet still be able to have them feel natural and relaxed so you can capture a genuine image. Here’s a peek from a shoot I did recently.
