This year has been different for me than last year as far as my photography is concerned.
Last year was about starting the business and taking pictures of anything and everything. Now, it is more about finding myself as a photographer and deciding what really excites me and what direction to take my business. Along with that, I decided I needed to meet other photographers in my area.
While my friends like that I started my business, none of them care about an aperture or shutter speed and I don’t blame them for that at all. I do want to get out there though and find some new friends that share in my passion for photography. Earlier this year, I started looking for local photography groups. I found a few really cool ones that meet regularly and attended my first one last month. Aside from meeting a bunch of really cool and talented people, I got to shoot in a fabulous studio, Photoplex Studios in Alpharetta. Now, I can’t take credit for the awesome lighting setup (thanks to Trent, Evan, and the rest of the team) or the posing. The models rocked it big time! I did come away with some new friends and some awesome shots. Aimee, Claudia, Kayla – hope to see you at the next one!
