get out there and shoot

Week before last I tagged along with my photographer friend, Justin.  Check out his stuff, because it’s amazing.  He was going to photograph a paleontologist for an upcoming issue of Texas Monthly and, because I’ve talked about learning more about using lights, he invited me to come.  That same day I went up to the church to hang my Family Dynamics photos.  I came home from all that bubbling over with excitement, and I realized something.  I realized that I need more creative outlets for my photography.  The ratio between sitting behind my computer and getting out there for the pure sake of taking photos is a little off balance.

With nothing but a camera in tow, it allows me some creative freedom, and that is very life giving.  My goal right now is to get out once a week for some period of time (it doesn’t have to be long) just to take photos.  Last week’s photo session was only 20 minutes on account of rain, but it still felt good to be out there.  Along with these photos, here’s some more from my photo day out.  I don’t feel that they’re amazing, but that wasn’t really the point.  The point was to have fun and just shoot, so goal accomplished!
