It has been a funny week. It started off good, that is me photographing my very first client, then I crashed big time as far as self confidence went. I did the whole questioning of whether or not I am really any good at this stuff, am I kidding myself. I know lots of negative self talk that I should know better than to listen too, but still, it was there.
Then yesterday I went out for the day with my photography friend and she told me that I was too negative, that I needed to start thinking positively otherwise nothing good will happen. So, I thought, I need to think positive. I got home to an inquiry about a wedding. Turns out I may get to shoot a wedding, doing my type of photography. They already have a photographer for the usual stuff but she really likes what I do so wants me to take some fine art portraits for her. How exciting.
So a different sort of client than I thought I would get, but I am very happy with it. I wouldn’t mind doing weddings this way. There isn’t a lot of pressure on me, so even better.
I have to get going, but thought I would show you one of the photos that I took at the session on Sunday. Also, not my usual client. She was older than my usual models, and I had to think differently, but I am happy with what I got in the end and I hope she is too.
