The last several months have been very distracting for me. A combination of too much on my plate and being served an unexpected side dish has thrown me for a loop. I have been bemoaning the fact that I haven’t been sharing enough of my photography. It makes me thing that those few “fans” I have are asking what I have been doing lately.
I was going to share some favorite images taken over the last year. I started to flip through my catalog and realized that would be a lot of material. To be honest, it was rather startling how much material I’ve created that I haven’t taken the opportunity to share. You may have seen them shared by others, but I have been lax.
What Have I Been Shooting Lately?
My usual, chaotic fare: Models, products, fashion, and wildlife. For this post, I’ll focus on the work I’ve done with models. As image competition time rolls around, I wanted to focus on portraits. Several wonderful people obliged. When I first started shooting, I was sure I never wanted to do portraits. Now, it is my bread and butter. I love the wide array of individuals I get to meet!
Why Haven’t I Been Sharing More?
Time is the great enemy. More importantly, it is that nagging feeling I always have that no one really cares what I am creating. It is the eternal lament of the artist, I suppose. Well, at least it is for me.
I keep telling myself that I just need to make time. But, even as I write these words, I have a laundry list of things to do before my next shoot. And the shoot after that. Then there are the dozens of things I want to do for which I can’t find the time.
Care To Help A Time-Starved Artist?
If you enjoy my work, take a moment to let me know. A simple comment. Share a post on social media. Introduce a friend to my work. Every little bit helps motivate me to continue pushing. More importantly, it reminds me to share what I’ve been shooting lately.
What would you like to see next? If you are a model and you’d like me to share a set we created, let me know! If you know a model you’d like to see me work with, point me in the right direction. Again, every tiny bit of motivation goes a long way.
