Why yes, that was the title of my post yesterday, and yes again! It was a photo that is strikingly similar to this one. Go see for yourself; it’s just one post back. It’s even got the same title, except for one little word.
love that photo I posted yesterday; it was from a session here in the studio last week with Summer and the Nerd Herd (aka Kahuna, Eugene and Shark, pictured here). But as much as I loved it, there was something missing. Something was off. So I asked Summer to drop by again today. I had the picture in my mind; I could see in my head what it should look like, but I just needed another few minutes alone with Summer and her crew.
And I got it. This! This is the photo I wanted and I’m so happy to be able to show it off. So here am I, showing it off:
Ok, this isn’t bragging. This is me being excited over shooting. Excited like I haven’t been in awhile, and that’s even more excited. I’m excited that I’m excited! And that’s more exciting. I guess you could say that I’m exponentially excited. (Oh, being a word nerd, that sentence just excited me too.)
It’s not often that we photographers can look at a photo and truly feel satisfied. We’re pixel-peepers, you know. The whole lot of us are known to zoom to 400% to see if that eye is as sharp as it could be. Of course, we don’t admit it. But we all do it. There should be a support group for it, really. It saps your creativity and it squashes you motivation. And if there’s one thing that full-time photographers need, it’s creativity and motivation.
So here’s mine. Hell, this’ll keep me going for the next half of next year. I mean, come on; the world didn’t end. I’ve got jobs to book and ideas to get.
In the meantime, I’m just going to love on this photo and thank Summer and Shark for giving me what I really believe is the best portrait I’ve taken thus far in my career.
WOW! That feels really good to say.
Thanks for listening.
