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.
So far the must have items would include:
Different kinds of flashlights and toy strobe lights. I use them for light painting mainly, and sometimes when I need to see in the dark.
Foam poster board in multiple colors like black and white. I have some cut to make a base and back. I use some to block light.
Those are my main items.
So what are your must have items?
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.
Pinterest is an amazing site to get some information and inspiration from. It is a great think board as long as one keeps everything super organized. When I started out on Pinterest, I just threw things here and there and everywhere. It was super chaotic, I could not find anything. It took me literally a week to get everything set up and organized. I cannot believe that it took that long. With Pinterest I have found many info graphics that have become great glance over cheat sheets. I have found on Pinterest many and great ideas on diy props, backdrops, and creative photo shoot ideas. I would recommend this platform for any new and professional photographer. If you do not have a pinterest account I suggest making one. You will not regret it at all……. Unless you get sucked into its awesomeness and spend insane amounts of time on it, like I do.

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/
