last week, knew what I did wrong, and was able to work toward my objective steadily.
It is hard to redo something but chances are when you do, you will do it better. I'm not saying this image is perfect either, as with the limited space we were working in really made me unhappy with the background, and on second thought I would've liked another flash, but I am still very satisfied.
However, realistically, in the professional world there usually aren't second chances at a shoot, so you have to be better prepared, but this helps me do so.
Lastly I'd like to thank Yeyeon for modeling with thin clothing in the cold, and Keren for giving me a much needed assist I couldn't have done this without.

I don't always like the photos I post here but I try to keep the posting regular anyway, and I've exhausted everything from Guatemala. I was a little anxious yesterday about a homework due today I still had no idea what to do about, and anxiety can really hinder your creativity. It also happens if I'm ever in a bad mood about something, even if I manage to take a decent photo I will certainly have nothing to say. Your mindset is a delicate thing with art, and I'm sure some people can harness negative emotions into their workflow, but stress, anxiety and a general bad mood don't work for me. It makes me wonder how artists who work 9-5 jobs manage to pump things out on gray days, or perhaps they don't? Which is why almost all artists wish they could be independent...

And although we cannot achieve perfection, we can certainly do better than this.

I don't know why I like photography. It seems from very young I was always drawn toward cool images, like most kids, but I always thought I wanted to be one of those who created them. Everybody has something that gives them drive, gets their motors started, brings in excitement, but it is strange how for every one it is different, and how some could feel no interest in what to you is the world.
For example: I'm just not a sport person. I don't care for sport news or watching big games or even just knowing the results. Yet to many, very many people, sports are their greatest passion and their lives almost revolve around them. All the same, lots of people out there do not care for photography. It's like nature vs. nurture. Are our interests product of our experiences or could they be a part of our genetic makeup? (Like those who say they were born to do something.)

Now I sure can talk for my own lack of experience but between working with someone experienced (Yvonne, my girlfriend) and inexperienced (above) I find the biggest challenge while shooting is knowing what I want and expressing it clearly and efficiently so that the model can perform optimally.
