This post was all in an effort of brain storming. Blogging sucks to do… but when you’re actually writing about something you want to write about the rest will come. I decided to sit down and just write about myself. (Ignore that sentence, sounded way selfish – lol) I’ve been trying to come up with some stuff to put on my blog to let a little bit more insight about the real me.
In turn as I was writing about the real me, turned into what I like, what I love and ultimately what I want to accomplish. Very interesting how the mind works, when I think of a subject to write about, I normally come up with a great idea. That in turn I can’t come up with a great blog post, then I GET really irritated. But from now on, I’m just going to start writing whatever I want to write about and see what happens. You might get something really great out of it.
Things you might not know, and some things you do.
(Now, after I wrote this, I started in on the next paragraph. i literally have no idea where this came from... but I just went with it.. apparently this image was on my brain and so was Pedro....)
I love Pedro. We got a divorce last year and were not together for about a year. I thought everything was done, there was no hope for repair of that relationship than this year, January 2011, everything changed. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.
We deal with weddings day in and day out, we get to see the stoked couple & everything is great, perfect, but what about when it’s not. My goal as photographer isn’t just to document happiness and weddings, as a photographer I made the decision to document life, as it happens, the good, the bad & the ugly.
You ever see a photo and it’s so real, and candid and in the moment, you fall completely In love with it, even though it’s not even anything to be in love with. Pedro took this photo at a wedding last week and there’s something about it. It screams, silence. It makes me feel a certain way. I feel the nervousness of the day, like the calm before the storm.
What if all your images could be like this? What if all your images could be a true representation of reality, now that would be something. Every day that I hold the camera, I want to make it a goal to take photos like this. I’m not sure how he does it, but I’m sure what day, if I keep at it, I’ll figure it out. Maybe that’s the problem, there’s nothing to figure out to capture reality, you just shoot, you don’t worry about what’s going, what they’re doing, how they are sitting, what they look like, you just shoot.
Sometimes you just have to flow. If you're in a blogging rut. Take 15 mins. Just start typing whatever comes to that cute little head of yours & just go with it. Ride it out. Make sure you have no distractions, turn off DOG the bounty hunter (my new tv addiction), turn off the radio, and just type.
I love to blog, but I'm blogging bi-polar. I go through sperts (sp?) where I'm like hey, this is great, I'm getting some great posts, sometimes 1-5 times a day. Like this week.... I'm on one of those really good, creative weeks, where I can't stop writing & then I get complaints of STOP POSTING ON YOUR FB FAN PAGE ALREADY... ahhh.. people are responding well and then BAM, my blog sits lifeless for 2 months and I keep updating it with posts that say, "Oh, I know I haven't blogged in awhile but I'm trying to get caught up..." No, not really.. i'm actually trying to figure out something else to do, ANYTHING else to do besides the blog.
I'm starting a new blogging journey with my business. If you would like to be apart of this blogging accountability group & stop having bipolar blog moments, sign up for the blogging challenge. I'm going to send out updates & ideas, and hopefully we can help each other out of this dark, rut & get the creative juices flowin'.
