Our whirlwind road trip across Texas is now over. Somewhere in the middle to late part of the trip I got a little exhausted thinking in photos. Thinking about what to shoot, angles, techniques and trying to go above and beyond. It was just a bit too much, I think. When we got to the beach on Mustang Island I just wanted to sit and be, to relax and love the water and salty air.
So, as for the photographs I will be separating them into blog worthy and into those I am saving to post on our, hopefully soon to be, photography website. I think a few saved ones may end up here, too, but I want to save them. Right now I am also trying to come up with a work flow plan. I want to keep track of where my photos are, also write down what edits I do with them in Photoshop just in case I lose the copy and need to go back to the original.
I’m also trying to find my niche. I want to do landscapes but I also feel that sometimes Chris and I shoot very similar things, especially in similar places. At some points I preferred to go down a different trail than him so that we had different things. I was very excited about one shot I took at Palo Duro Canyon and then I flipped through some of his stuff and saw he had something very similar. Drat. I suppose we’ll just see who has the better one? Chris is also into panoramas and stitching photos and I’m not, but I did try one that I want to put together. I also took a lot of reverse lens macros and am thinking of doing a diptych series of some of them. Does anyone know of any macro photographers that I should be studying from? I kinda Googled a bit the other night but I didn’t see any one particular website that jumped out at me, it was mostly websites that talked about macro or about the top macro photos.
A few list type things:
-I am planning on doing more Nature in the City posts.
-In the same vein I am going to start a Local Coffee series. I had some local coffee in Port Aransas at a place called Coastal Waves and it was really, really good. The place had photos for sale on the wall, oversized comfortable chairs…a nice place to go.
-A free Messy Canvas ebook is now out! I downloaded it but haven’t had a chance to read it yet.
–Grace Potter and the Nocturnals has a new album out and I really want it. Badly. I need a job, too, so I can buy it. Or maybe someone to buy a photo! heh!
-I updated my “About” page. I plan on updating my header and sidebars soon, too. That takes more time, though.
Now to tackle my to-do list.
