This week I attended my third shootout, which I will blog about later, but that is where these photos were taken. Those are my rings along with another attendees’… I really like these and they tie into my topic of discussion. Tomorrow will be my first official 2nd shooting experience! Teale is the photographer and I will be her 2nd. The wedding is somewhere in Blaboa Park so it should be beautiful.
Am I nervous?? No, more excited and ready to shoot!! I feel really good about it, it is the first 2nd shooting wedding of 4 I have coming up! Not to mention that I booked my very own wedding!!! Yes, I know I didn’t share it but it will take place in about 4 weeks! Im super excited and am hoping that I am going to learn a lot and gain a ton of experience, I know I am. So much has happened in such a short time, I just got my camera in January, I didn’t think I’d book a wedding 6 months later but I am not going to shy away from it, I welcome the challenge and am going to throw myself in there! Don’t worry I have an excellent 2nd shooter lined up for myself I’ll tell you about him later.
Also in recent news I just bought a 40D… Should be on it’s way to me now…I was going back and fourth with the 5D and since I am sooo indecisive I took the advice of a FB friend which was that it will make a great backup eventually and it is only 1/2 the cost of the 5D, which makes a lot of sense for me right now. It does a lot that my xsi can’t quite do and I won’t feel ridiculous at my upcoming weddings shooting with the same camera as everyone attending Feeling good, getting more interest in portrait sessions and I plan on just doing what I’m doing, This is all fun for me!
