This is a pretty moody one but I still really like it! I think it’s really good to have some diversity in the editing and styles you shoot. I’m not always the best about that but I definitely try to be. I used to throw some of my own presets on a photo but now I feel like some of my favorite photos are worthy of getting a edit specific to them. I think presets can be a great way to start yourself off and get your editing style nailed down, but I definitely don’t think they should be the go to for every photo? How do you guys feel about presets?
Sometimes there’s these moments that come through that are just absolutely amazing even when they seem so small. Seeing this buck was one of them. He was super curious in my shutter clicking and kept coming closer until he just stopped and stood like this for a while. I took like 3 photos and then I just stopped and watched. Sometimes there’s moments I enjoying living and this one was definitely one of them. What an incredible moment to live!
Portraits are one of those things that I don’t do a lot of but I absolutely love to do. It’s always a great time working with other people! Shoutout to @memories_in_a_snap for having me shoot some portraits of her. . . . . . . . . #portraiture#portraitmood#portraitphotography#artofvisuals#portraitphotographer#adventureportraits#posing#clothingstyle#styleshot#portraits#visualportraits#modelphotographer#outdoorportraits#outdoorportrait#moodyports#moodyphotos#portraitpeople#portraitinspiration#fashionportraits#adventurephotos#gs10k#nikonnofilter#portraitunit#portraithood#portraitsquad#classifiedmind#atdiff_shots#folk_life_mood#thecampfolk
Every now and then it’s fun to change things up from how you normally go about things. Yesterday I took just my 50mm and went hiking. Reminded me of how I used to shoot and it was nice to kind of bring it back to basics. I think it’s something we all need every now and then to go and bring things back to basics to remind ourselves of where we are now and where we were.
I haven’t posted in a while. Not because I haven’t been out on a shoot or anything. I just haven’t done shots I truly enjoyed for a while. This platform is absolutely incredible and it’s an incredible way to share your work with other people. Sometimes though, I get the feeling that I’m shooting just for Instagram and I really hate that. I do photography because I love photography not because of social media. Sometimes it creates a negative outlook on what you do because it instantly relates to what social media is not what photography is. Does social media and instagram specifically ever sometimes become your focus and you have to take a step back and reevaluate why you’re doing what you’re doing? I’d love to here your guys thoughts.
