BW Light

Hey guys long time no chat! Well I've been a busy girl with work and researching some new photography paths.
I love my fine art photography and will Never give that up. But someone has actually asked me (*thru looking at my flickr and knowing my friend*) to possibly shoot their wedding in 2010. At first I thought whatttt? Me??
But then I started thinking. I love the photojournalism style of many of todays wedding photogs. And if I were to do weddings it would be My preferred style. So my heart has led me in that direction. I am reading like mad about portrait photography and wedding work and looking for a professional wedding photo to take me under her wing. I've had one lovely person already email me back wanting to meet me and possible "second shoot" with her. So I'm pleased as punch hehe. Sorry but I guess I should say I'm over the moon. Or I'm just tickled pink. Well you get the idea =)

So stayed tuned.

For now; here is a photo that I took that I am especially proud of. I converted it to BW after thinking the tones and variations would really suit it. You tell me!

Very nice! Keep it up!

You may like to look at the website of a family member of mine: - I think she is sooooo awesome.

P.S. Did you write about a sucky Mother's Day and then delete it? If so, and if it makes you feel any better, I can commiserate (sp?). I was at the dirtbike races, no one remembered until the OTHER families said something about it to THEIR wives/mothers, then dh said "Happy Mother's Day"(& plus my MIL was THERE with us from out of state)! *I* gave her a necklace and earrings (that were really an overdue xmas present that I never sent). I did get a clear-and-green homemade beaded necklace from my 1st grader on Friday that I wore all day Sunday. ;)

hooray for you. your photography is lovely and you will do a lovely job. sometimes a challenge is thrown at us for a reason.

Jody said...

Oh yeah Mitch's mom I did leave a post and delete lol. I decided Not to whine. =) But thanks. Nice to know I'm not the only one!

And thanks Margie. I have a mindset and I will keep on my path =)

Hey there, stumbled on your site via Darren's DPS. I am just getting into photography, and I have a lot of trouble getting portraits to focus right... it's really frustrating because they look fine on the camera but when I view them on the computer screen I see the blurriness =(. Doing wedding photography is also a dream job of mine, best of luck to you!
