Never stop learning. There is always something new to learn and there is always something old to relearn. With in the last 2 weeks I have been on a mini shopping spree of camera gear. I have invested in some PocketWizards, light meter, expodiscs and other photo tools. Well, I am not about to use this equipment at a wedding or bridal shoot without practicing and getting some experience under my belt.
What better way to practice than to photograph some wine bottles?! If I can photograph drunk I can photograph anything. And I am joking!! Although the chianti was awesome. However, I will be working with the new gear for quite some time because it is true – practice makes perfect. And I do like to practice.
No one wants a wedding photographer who doesn’t know what they are doing and just as important – no one wants a photographer who doesn’t know their gear inside and out. I think as the winter is just so cold and depressing I will be working on some mini photography projects to keep my skills at the top performance. I don’t want to get rusty.
I think for the next week I will use the light meter for every single photograph. (unless I am using my iPhone) And then after that I will use the expodiscs for a whole two weeks. Woo hoo!
Now I should go watch some football while I edit a wedding album.
