So far there has been no update on this whole back problem. I am doing physical therapy multiple times a week. I have an upcoming nerve induction, which I am not looking forward to. Hopefully we will find out what is going on with the nerves back there. All of this is rather frustrating, I really want to be able to shoot and not have insane pain or be laid up in bed the entire next day. Other than that there has been no new updates for my back and not being able to go out and shoot.
I recommend that anyone in photography keep this in mind. Sometimes it is easy to forget some of the simple things. Sometimes upcoming photogs need a little info. Sometimes we just need an awesome come back to the ill informed clients that think it is just the camera that makes the image. The image was found here. I give all credit to Shoot FLY Shoot.
Even though this blog is in a different language the images are inspiring and I want to do some images like them. http://photorat.pblogs.gr/2012/01/levitation-photography-aiwroymenh-fwtografia.html
Levitation is something that is awe amazing when it comes to photographey. It is something that I have always wanted to do with my work. I think that it would be amazing to achieve for me.
There is this wonderful site that I do recommend for every photographer and designer that is out there. The subscription every month is 5 bucks with a coupon that can be found online. Squijoo is super amazing, I have found many things that can be totally useful for everything that I use and need for my photography business. I check the site every few days to see if they have anything new and if they do I download it so that I have it for a later time when I need it.
If anyone feels uncomfortable signing up off the bat, they do have some freebies that anyone can get. From what I have seen the freebies do change up randomly. Which is amazing you can get different ones. My favorite when it comes to this site, is the overlays and the word art. The overlays range from animals all the way to super hero stuff. I have used the reindeer and Santa over Christmas.
So check the site out. It can be found here: http://squijoo.com/
Q. When you go in one of your travels, what all you take with you? Why?
Traveling, oh this is a good one. I have been dying to cover this question in a blog. When it comes to my bag, the things that are always in it would be my camera body, three lenses, two hoods, and two batteries. Depending on what I go to shoot would help me define the extras. Another thing that I do not leave with is my smartphone.
I have learned that in the winter to make sure I have gloves in my bag, in the summer a bottle of water and bug spray.
Q. Whose work has influenced you most?
People that have influenced me would be:
- Philippe Halsman
- Abeldro Morell
- Sue Bryce
- Steve Bronstein
- Meg Bittion
All of these photographers have strived for more and have achieved it, when it comes to their work it is so different from each other, but they have each mastered their craft. Different aspects of their work have influenced me in mine, down from ideas to post production.
Q. Among your works, which one is your favorite? Why?
I have learned that it is hard to choose a favorite image when it comes to my work. If I have them printed or shared or blogged, the images are my favorite. If I have to choose my absolute favorite comes down to a light painting with headphones and an iPod that I have done. In doing this image, I learned how to light paint, create art with light painting, and my undying passion for light painting. This work has opened a whole new world for me.
