Soon to come

I have many things in the works right now!
I’ve been really busy lately, working full-time at an office, shooting on the weekends, editing on weeknights, and adding a social life in there somewhere!

So needless to say, I haven’t had much time to update my website, especially this blog. But fear not, I am creating a plan!

Soon, after shifting my efforts, changing my schedule around, etc., I will be blogging at least twice a week; mixing things up with thoughts, how-to’s, behind the scenes, and photo shoots themselves! I also have a photography Tumblr that I’ll work to update as often as possible.

At the same time I’ll be working to create a cohesive collection of images to showcase in my portfolio…This is something I’ve been struggling with all year. I love all of my photo shoots and want to show photos from every single one on my website! …but I’m realizing that’s maybe not the best way to go about it. I have changed my editing style countless times in the past year and I really want to work on choosing one style to use as my portfolio, and keep one separate style to blog with. From me you’ve seen crisp vibrant colors, somber hazy colors, blurry action, grainy, smooth, etc. And that’s great for my personal development because I’ve been able to test out what I like, try different techniques, and learn along the way. The only problem is that my clients have no clue what they’re going to get…! I am learning that successful photographers will still experiment, but when it comes to their websites they stick to what they want to get more business from. They choose a style and clientele and they showcase that in order to attain the kind of business that they want to attain…I guess that’s not rocket science, but it’s something I still had to learn! If you don’t like taking pictures of babies, why are you posting pictures of babies? If you want jobs shooting headshots in the studio, why are you posting outdoor family photos? Don’t feel bad if this is you. I am currently doing this. My portfolio has more personalities than I can even count! Time for a makeover.
SO long story short, I’m going to blog all of my photo shoots, but be much more selective for my website itself.

And then this summer I’m shooting a couple weddings, I’ll be assisting a great photographer at his studio, and many more themed shoots are in the works!

I’m excited for what’s to come and I hope you are too! Have a happy Friday.

And yeah, no, this picture has nothing to do with this blog post. :)
