Photography Obsession

I haven’t posted in a long time because I’ve become totally obsessed with photography. Its pretty much all I think about lately. OK, I still go to work and deal well with my family and church, but I’m thinking a lot about what kind of pictures I can take.

What started it was a friend asking me if I would shoot some glamour pictures of her and her friends to give to their husbands for Valentines. This idea turned into a calendar, where we would have two pictures of each women. A portfolio bonanza for me.

But alas glamour doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone and to these women my ideas were too risqué. So the multiple shoots fell through. But my friend was still game and I shot some of her. The picture to the right is my favorite. Click on it to see a bigger version.

This also caused me to fix my portfolio to use Gallery, so you can check it in its updated glory at photo.reactuate.com.

I also contacted a local photographer I’d seen on Garage Glamour named Bob Warren and we met for lunch. It was fun to see his studio and talk to him. We’re probably going to shoot together in the future.

And I got a portfolio on One Model Place. I mostly did this so I’d be able to search for models by zip code to look for someone to do TFP with. I went through the 600 results for a 25 mile radius of 77339 and found 34 I was interested in.

Hopefully this means there will be more pictures in the near future. I scouted a location last night I think will be cool and I contacted a local model who wanted to shoot with me earlier. I’ll let you know how that ends up.
