I sent an email to a publisher/photographer/CEO to see the possibility of an internship or even studying under him to learn more and take my photography to the next level. Though his reply was, to me, unprofessional; I took that as a lesson. One, I still need to learn to take criticism regardless of how harsh it may be. Two, there are some things I can still learn when it comes to photography, light techniques, and composition. Lastly, he fueled a fox that was already hungry for success. Always driven & now even more #motivated!#photography
The gallery showcase I had was a success. I didn’t sell any pieces but I donated one of my pieces for auction in order to assist with funding for Boston Strong in order to help those affected from the Boston marathon incident.
I watched this documentary that someone posted in regards to how we as people never live in the moment anymore with how everyone has to now take a picture. Pictures help savor those memories and in that aspect I understand, but to be able to take a step back and breath in, look, and just experience everything around you is so much more important. Everything evolves with time and it seems that with such access to dslr and other cameras, photography is going to change. Not sure if it will be for the better or worse. Only time will tell what changes await the now saturated field of photography.
I really wanted to do something with the American flag for a photo shoot and I told myself why not get others involved. I want to create something and have others share in my vision. Julian Suarez, local stylist, helped create the look. Natalie Kurpeski helped with makeup for models Diana Z and Christopher Scott. It was all filmed by Cisco Santiago and edited by yours truly. I want my brand not only focused on my work but also the work of others. I am a big supporter of people that have dreams they want to fulfill and if we can all help each other, we have limitless possibilities.
Ah! Today was spent at home even though I wanted to get some shoots in. One individual, Liliana Jimenez, who took part for my no makeup series was filmed back in June and today I got to complete it. However, an issue raised with the sound so we may have to refill because i am too much of a perfectionist.
I also started editing Lillian’s pics from the umbrella series as well as Julian’s pics from the picnic with his girl. All the quenicero pics are all done as well.
Today has been a very productive day! Now I’m going back to sleep as its 130am
I wanted to do a shoot where a model would rock a custom made bike and boom, Lauren Elise Sinclair volunteered to help me out in which I was grateful for. Her energy was superb and the photos were exactly what I was looking for.
Camer used was Nikon D7000 with different lenses as well as a battery pack for my light kit and umbrella.
