For those of you who have been around here for a while know I was a "budding" amateur photographer. I dragged that camera and gear almost everywhere I went.
Then last year happened and honestly the camera got stored away. OH I took it out for family celebrations and used it as a point and shoot. But to actually go out looking for interesting shots.. going for the arty farty - it just dried up. It wasn't in me anymore.
There is a friend in the community who is an amazing photographer - and I mean AMAZING!! For the first few months after the break up he kept pestering me to go out with him for photo shoots...... But I kept saying it's not in me - not yet .... until he finally stopped asking.
At Easter I took the camera down to Montreal and pointed and shot pictures of the kids and the table and the decorations - cause ya know I'm the family photographer. At one point I turned and reached for my glass of wine - and there was something - sun glinting off the stem and I picked up my camera and took a shot of it........... and just like that the urge was back........
So last week I approached this chap and asked if he would take me out shooting. I told him after nearly a year I had forgotten most of the stuff I had learned....... and desperately needed a refresher course. He accepted.........
So this Sunday we are going out shooting - are you ready for this - at 6 AM!! gotta get that first light ya know (grinning) THAT I do remember.
and here's the inspiration for this photo shoot
