So today is Photography Friday and it's usually where I share tips and tricks and any recent photoshoots but since the past two weekends have been either too busy or too rainy to take any photo's, today is another slightly random post, although it is still photography related and there are a couple of my beachy photos thrown in the mix too, I can't totally let you down! ;)
I'm actually just about dying for it will stop raining long enough for me to take some more shots! I have a cool idea for a photoshoot at a local park amongst all the Autumn colour and I've been asked by my boss (eek!) if I would take some shots of her and her young daughter...better not mess those up! Luckily my boss is more of friend and mentor than a scary BOSS so I'd love to create some great memories for her family, but the pressure is still on, because I'm pretty hard on myself!
It's been really quite amazing what happens when people hear that you're into photography or somehow come across your photo's on facebook or through a link someone's sent them and I have to say it's been really cool! I've even been offered payment for a couple of shoots and it just seems so crazy since I'm still so new to photography!
|That little strip of land in the distance is Rangitoto Island, it's a volcano that erupted quite violently a very long time ago, I don't think it's due for another eruption anytime soon, but I always think about it when I see it!|
I do feel nervous about accepting paid jobs right now because if people are paying me I feel like they have certain expectations that I may or may not be able to meet. I certainly don't expect payment from family and friends and until I am more experienced I don't know if getting paid by anyone is the right thing to do and if it is I have no idea how much people would want to pay and they're asking me what I charge!
Has anyone else been in this situation or even something remotely similar? If you have a view on this at all, I'd love to hear it! Email me if you'd rather not write a comment, my address is on my About Me page.
Ugh, I'm just so happy it's Friday so I can quit thinking and just relax! I'm being whisked off to a romantic dinner on Saturday night, hubby and I are going to one of our favourite local restaurants and I also really want to go and watch 'The Hunger Games' at the cinema at some point this weekend too, has anyone seen it yet? Any good??
Okay, I'm signing off, have a great weekend girls! I'll be back next week hopefully after having taken some kind of photos, I'm getting withdrawal from my camera and Photoshop haha, don't forget to enter my digital scrapbooking and photo album Giveaway, entries are open to all countries until next Tuesday when the lucky winner will be drawn!
|Saturday night will be dinner here at Windross House right next |
