While I am not sure of the exact date, it was around this time last year that my camera broke. I was out shooting at an abandoned schoolhouse with Brandy one day when it happened. We were walking around the property, which was creepy, taking photos when we saw this car and the garage. As we walked towards it, everything was very still and we felt a really cold spot. It was very eerie and weird. I took this photo and then my camera just shut down, mid shot. I thought it was the battery that had died. I was mad because there were other things I wanted to get photos of. And the battery was not close to being dead. I put my other battery in and it still didn’t work. Come to find out the camera just died. Completely broken. This was the last photo I ever took with it. I’m not sure what exactly made it break, but maybe it was something there at that schoolhouse. Anyway, I was certainly not happy with the situation and eventually I got the camera that I have now.
Another day of photography class and today we got to use the studio. We set up the seamless and got some tota lights out. And we started shooting portraits. Sometimes it can be hard to shoot in class, because there are ten other people all trying to get a shot. Today was a little hard but I was able to slip in every now and then and snag a couple of shots. Emily was our model today and I was able to grab this shot.
My photography professor told us to shoot twenty photos this week (not hard task for me) and told us we should shoot every day. I most definitely agree with him. He talked about how he shot every day and he’s been shooting since the 70’s. There are some days where I fail to make time for photos but I try my best to shoot as much as I can. One because it improves my skill and two because there are amazing photos waiting to be taken everywhere. So this morning I headed to class, camera in bag as always and I saw this guy. He was using this concrete saw to cut tiles and was creating a huge cloud of dust. And because I always have my camera I was able to get this shot.
Proof that I don’t use lens caps.
Turning my lens over to Canon was hard. Like leaving your child with strangers. Awaiting my new lens is like a 5 year old waiting for Christmas. I’ve been so anxious!! Hopefully within the next couple of days I’ll be feeling back to normal.
Home is where your camera and tripod are.
