So, I've re-evaluated, and found that life is too short to not be completely happy with who you are, and with your surroundings.
In two weeks, I will be available full time as a photographer... I'm also going to broaden my horizons. Since being a photographer, I've been asked to shoot weddings, reunions, children, grandparents, newlyweds, business endeavors, even funerals. ... But I'm going back to the basics.
A friend from school posted this blog yesterday... And it hit home with me. I shoot images of families and only post them if they are crystal clear, have bright eyes and are technically "correct". I'm not sure when I got stuck in this rut, but I'm getting out of it NOW. I want to go back to shooting weird things like cigarette butts and rocks and have some people think, "why in the world did she take a picture of that? But that's pretty cool...." That's the kind of photography I like.
And that's the kind of photography I'm going to start doing again.
