Shoot something besides people..............
Sometimes I just have to find something interesting to shoot that doesn't involve
photographing people. Don't get me wrong! I love photographing people for so
many reasons. I love interacting with people, getting to know them and taking a
special photographs that make them smile. I know that years from now they will
look at their images and remember their time spent helping me create these memories.
But, once in a while, I am driven to search for something special that catches my eye.
When I was at After Dark Dallas in February, this is the hotel where we stayed,
photographed, ate, slept and tramped around in the dark with video lights, flashlights and
strobes creating our own vision without the sun's help. It was a wonderful experience
and I am anxious to head up to Kansas City, MO in September for another one.
In the meantime, I am going to be searching for something with a personality made up
of lights, colors, brick and mortar to shoot when I need a little non-people inspiration.
Enjoy our week-end!
