I Am My Greatest Critic
So I know I said I don't do people shoots, but I was asked to do a wedding, so I said yes!
I am so glad I was given the opportunity to gain some experience! I had a blast and I shot a lot of photos (over 6,000, actually), but I learned something: I need a 35mm. I used a wide angle and a 50mm, but it was a little difficult because either I was too far away or too close, and the 35mm would put me in the best range for good wedding pictures. Someday after I break even with my photography I'll look into getting one.
One unfortunate thing about my personality is I am way too critical of my own work. I know I can't get every picture right, so I've learned to accept that my work is good enough, and I will continue to get better by learning from each mistake.
On a different note, this last week was insane. I juggled a full time job, two very big shoots, editing well over 8,500 photos, packing for the move, and somehow having time to spend with my friends! I managed to get all the wedding photos completely done, I'm a third of the way through the other event's photos, but I was fried. I went five days with a total of 12.5 hours of sleep!
With that said, this weekend was a MUCH needed break from life and a super fun time with my friends! My friend Katie just turned 21, so her parents were amazing and got us all a weekend at Mount Hood in this awesome little cabin! We all went skiing/snowboarding, played games, watched movies, hot tubbed, snowshoed around Trillium Lake, and enjoyed having nothing to do but chill for an entire weekend. It rocked.
I brought all my gear but I didn't really get any pictures. Just these few of the snow.
