So a few months ago, I was in a slump. I was debating whether or not to hang up photography in 2018 after finishing any outstanding photo shoots scheduled for the reminder of 2017.
At the time when I started feeling the slump, I told myself I wasn’t going to take on any more projects or work in 2017 other than what I have previously scheduled, unless it’s paid and I really needed the money. Well, lo’ and behold, I really needed the money, so I took on MORE paid work!
My paid work came from various sources. I’ve done a few photo shoots for tourists from Mexico through a travel photography website that connects tourists with local photographers worldwide. I’ve also done a couple portrait sessions and weddings as the second shooter.
I have also done a couple unpaid projects. I did a couple shoots to test out my Nikon D300, in which I re-acquired. I previously had one a couple years ago and I regret selling it. This particular D300 was from Offer Up and it’s not in the greatest shape, but at least it’s working and I have a backup. I did a few head shots to test it out.
Yes! One of the pictures in the gallery is a person standing in front of the milky way. It’s was a very tough shot and the night was very COLD to boot!
