I have done a lot of preparatory work for another banner year of photography. I took some classes between Christmas and New Years Day, ordered some new props and backdrops for the studio and built a platform for photographing larger dogs.
This year I have a number of goals on my agenda, which I will cover at some point during the blog cycles. Suffice it to say, it's going to be a great year, if I can stick to my guns and get it all under my belt.
One of the reasons I love photography, is that if you study and practice your art form, you can tell a good story, and save an image that might not otherwise look saveable. The post processing (edit) tricks used by individual photographers are often a matter of taste.
To illustrate, I've used a somewhat lack-luster image of our dog Lilah, intently watching birds and squirrels at our bird feeders after our one and only snow event so far this winter.
I am so happy to have caught her in this very Lilah look, and in one of our everyday life happenings.
I enjoy taking my time with every client photo to seek out the real story, and make beautiful afters of all the befores!
For more BEFORE and AFTER, a blog circle of photographers is waiting for you to just click on the links at the bottom of each page and travel around to see their take on this week's theme. We have some new additions this year and I am looking forward to reading their blogs and welcoming them to the circle. To begin, start with Kim of BARKography, photographing dogs in Charlotte NC and other cities across the US and Canada.
I hope AFTER your weekend is over, you will be able to say you accomplished everything you wanted to do BEFORE it began!
