I’m pretty lucky as far as the weather is concerned…

I’m pretty lucky, as far as dealing with weather conditions as a photographer.  In all my years as a professional photographer I’d only ever been forced to reschedule a session due to inclement weather twice.  Scratch that.  As of this evening it’s now thrice.

Still, I shouldn’t complain.  Three times during my professional career?  That’s less than once every two years.  I’d say it’s a darn good track record.  Seems Mother Nature is generally on my side.  😉

These winds though, WOW!  While they’d be fabulous for a glamour shoot – a woman wearing a gauzy dress, with flowing hair, and a big wide brimmed hat?  How much fun would that be???  But a couple looking for some relaxed and romantic, quiet and calm captures?  Not so much.  So we rebooked for another time.

I love working in the open air, you simply won’t find a studio environment that can offer even a tenth of the qualities you can find out in nature.  The light, the setting, the amazing effect both can have on your subjects…  Nope.  You’re not going to find that in a studio.  Heck, I used to have one…  and I didn’t use it.

Yep, given me the real world any day.  Real people, enjoying themselves in a real situation.  Loving themselves and the experience.  It just doesn’t get any better!

 

Ugh.  Just realized I’ve got bug guts on my screen.  Ewwwwwww……….  😛

Gotta love Summer!  (and yes, it’s from something getting squashed earlier while I was working outdoors – because even when I’m processing an image, if I can be outside?  I’d rather be.)
