When I first bought all of my photography equipment and lighting I was anxious to use it. I had my friend Carissa come over to test it out since she was somewhat into modeling at the time. I was pretty proud of my very first shot, (no pun) at using all of my new equipment and my new camera and my new Photoshop program. Now, my program is outdated and I would ever remember how to use it…but at the time it was pretty difficult to jump right in and figure out how to do the things I wanted to do. Hopefully I can get an updated version and get all of my equipment set up somewhere and get back into my photography. I would love to take a class and learn the ins and outs of the programs and my new camera.
I love that this photo is so natural and peaceful as well as just plain simple. I didn’t want to do anything really crazy for my first time so I wouldn’t be overwhelmed. I literally had power cords EVERYWHERE and animals running under foot and clothes pins holding the backdrop to a bookshelf. Not my best, but it was all I had at the time. Now that I may have a nice big room to devote to my art and photography I may be able to set up something more permanent and learn a little more. I need a little more experience, but I’ll get there. Thanks for helping Carissa!
