I was going through some old stuff the other day and came across my “High School Senior Scrapbook”. We had to put these together before we graduated… I graduated in 1999, so not TOO long ago, but feels like forever sometimes. I loved reading what I wrote back then about pursuing my photography dreams. My grammar was so terrible, it is slightly embarrassing to share, although posting to my blog at 1am probably is not much of an improvement.
I schedule my blog posts by the way, so it may show I’m posting at a certain time, but really my assistants and I prepared the post and schedule it in most cases. I always prepare the photos and write the posts, they just help me put the formatting together, etc. Still trying, trying, trying to catch up on my blog… it’s frustrating to not post my most recent work, but I feel like if I do I will never post the work I did prior to it, and I still love so many photos I have done this past year that I am excited to share. Hopefully with the help of my assistants we can get everything current soon.
SO, another thing I really loved about these “vintage” photos (ok, ok – I know they are not vintage), they are actually pretty terrible. Now looking at them is scary as the photography was not even close to good, BUT the interesting thing is you can tell I still tried to capture the candid moments that I do in my photography today. I think if you follow my work, you will know what I mean.
I just took the photos of the scrapbook in bad lighting with my phone because I was lazy. Oh and the “titles” on the photos – I know, so lame… funny.
