Outside the Studio
I didn’t know if I should title this post Outside the Studio, Getting Out of the Studio, Get My Butt Out of the Studio or what to name it. I had just completed bids on photography projects. I hope I get the projects. All of them sounded fun. Some were going to be a little challenging. Difficult photo assignments are good. They make me think so I don’t become complacent in my photography. Some involve travel out of the State, which adds to the excitement of landing the photography project. Seeing different scenery and photographing different landscapes makes my job a blast. Sometimes I don’t think I can call what I do a job. The business never becomes mundane. Did I mention I hope I get the projects I’ve been bidding on?
Typing up bids and emailing clients, talking on the phone and tidying up the studio I realized I needed to look through a camera. I wanted to be outside. Sure, it’s 98˚, but I wanted to be outside. This winter I know as a typical Midwesterner, I’ll complain with the rest of the Upper Central Plains population, “Why does it have to be so cold? Why is there a 20 mile per hour wind blowing and it’s -10˚ with 6 inches of snow?” But, I’ll post some photos of the snow and think about what a horrible summer this was… and wish it were summer again.
The following images were taken around the studio and the house. Flowers intrigue me. Their shape, color and texture are alluring to us all. The other items, the faucet, garbage can lid and the gas meter just caught my attention. Simple goofy photos. I feel so much better getting out and taking photos!
It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden, and it pleases my garden to make my photographs look professional. ~Robert Brault,
Hope you enjoyed the images!
