Photography Blogging

I’ve been working on my photography business lately. It’s going well, or maybe I should say better than before. The problem, is that I need a place to blog about the photography business and whatnot.

So, that’s the issue¬†that I’m facing.

Do I start a brand new blog, just for photography, or do I just start blogging about my photography here… that, is the question.

I’m still developing my style, but if there was a photography style that I want to grow towards, it’s shooting like this photo here:

I took that during a photo shoot yesterday. I like how the clouds look, I like how he’s lit too. If I’m honest, I’d want a little more back light and a little bit more light on his face. Whence the whole thing about developing my style a bit more.

Overall, I like this photo, and so did the client. Ultimately, what matters is making the client happy, right?

A Short Post

As I wrote out my article for tonight’s game, I was reminded of the quip:

“I didn’t have time to write you a short letter, so I wrote you a long one instead.”

I’m paraphrasing a little, but the point is that writing something short and concise takes more time than writing something that is neither. You never quite appreciate that until you have to tell the story of what happened during a baseball game in 300 words or less.

I’m Not The Only Avgeek In Town

When I was out at the observation park at ABIA, I looked over and saw this guy’s setup. Me? I stand on a mound and hand hold my camera.

This guy, has the right idea. He setup his tripod in the bed of this truck and was setup for the long haul. He has a place to sit, he’s up over the fence, and best of all, he’s right in front of where the planes turn onto the runway.

I should have gone over and introduced myself to a fellow avgeek, but apparently, I’m much less friendly in person than I am online. Maybe not less friendly, but less outgoing.

It looks like he’s shooting with a Tamron, maybe a 150-500 or something like that. It telescopes out, so it was not the pro grade but perhaps the prosumer grade lens. I didn’t get a good look at the camera, but I’m still impressed with his setup.
