and now for more inconsistencies!

I'll allow this photo blog and the photos to illustrate the way my head bounces from idea to idea.

I had to make a photo illustrating "environment", trying to think alternatively.  I had a hard time with this one since I immediately just go to our icky natural environment but this is what I came up with.  I could have probably thought up something more creative but right now this is all I have.  I get a little literal sometimes.  When it comes to the environment I like to do straight photography, not photo illustrations because they're not necessary.  But, in an attempt to expand my way of thinking here is my illustration of environment the way I see it.

If an explanation is needed (which I hate posting something that calls for one), it has to do with that feeling of not being safe from our environmental state indoors or outdoors.  Which is worse?

Exit Music [for a film] or photoshoot

After setting the scene with the most sophisticated rain equipment known to man, and some and a strangely willing Amy produced these images that are EXACTLY what wain my head when I dreamt this up. I can't wait to do this with more people and get a portfolio going. The cold really worked to my advantage, all the skin texture and body heat making steam just....satisfies the creative part of my mind. I feel good. 3 minutes of shooting.


I'm working on a portfolio of my dreams. Here's one from the start. Eeek. It should improve as I keep going. I'm sort of thinking that my conceptual side should not exist. But I will at least give it a try. Insert embarrassment here. Gotta start somewhere right

Remember when we used to relax?

No, but I remember this beautiful place!!

Sometimes I feel like being a photographer is a step closer to becoming a masochist. Taking photos isn't relaxing, it's tense, I'm way too aware, "missing every shot" (even though I'm probably not), and the pleasure comes at the end when it's over and I put the camera down and breathe. Then I feel great about what you did (sometimes) and that's where the "relaxation" and pleasure are. I feel satisfied that I did something I love to do, and then go torture my mind again the next time and "relax" again when its over.

I will unquote the word "relax" once I learn the meaning of it.
