So, as it goes sometimes, life gets busy, time gets away from you, and before you know it YEARS have gone by. Five years to be exact since my last blog post. Wow, five years. That's pretty sad. But, my life and daily routine have settled back down now, so I've decided to jump back in and get rolling again with a little food photography. And what better way to begin than with donuts!
My schedule stays pretty busy with weddings, family sessions, high school senior sessions and newborn sessions, which are all GREAT things to be busy with, and I'm extremely grateful to have really amazing clients, many of whom are also my co-workers and friends. Grandkids are also at the top of my priority list, and I try to devote as much time as I can to them as well. But with my busy schedule I wasn't setting aside time to just play with my cameras, and I found myself missing those times when I just got out my camera and took pictures of random things, just to play with light and composition, whether that be food, flowers, still life objects, motion, you name it. All those things that fascinated me when I began my adventure in photography. So, while at the grocery store recently these donuts caught my eye, and I thought "Yes, let's do donuts."
I had forgotten how much fun it is to just pick up my camera, play around, experiment and create whatever comes to mind. I picked up a few other yummy things at the grocery store that I plan on taking pictures of soon, and with spring coming I'm sure there will be flowers calling my name also, so I'm excited to see what awaits me, and I'm looking forward to creating using "Random things" on a more regular basis again.
