I took these awhile back. I haven’t had a chance to post them on the regular blog since I’ve been favoring paid shoot related stuff. I’ve known Rachel since the first grade. It’s weird being back in San Diego, weird photographing friends like this. It’s a good feeling to be able to take a photo that represents how you feel about someone.
Hey it’s my first blog entry here. I’m actually pretty excited about the creation of this new outlet. I had started another blog previous to this that was sort of a project, and had rules attached to it. The rules became a pain in the ass to deal with and I started to get a bit resentful of the thing. Completely defeating the purpose of it of course. It took me awhile to think up an idea for a new blog. Probably because I was over thinking it entirely. Ashley (pictured below), my official project coach had been encouraging me to “do it” for some time. You’d think she works for Nike or something. Anyways much like her new personal blog I wanted something that was simple and easy to maintain. I’m planning on posting pretty much whatever the hell I want to. So there will definitely be lots of personal photos I’ve taken like this one. I also plan on posting other random stuff. Basically whatever I want to talk about. I also owe Melissa for essentially setting up the framework and providing guidance to me. She’s the web wizard, although I did actually design this one mostly myself. Of course it’s not exactly a complex design so I’m not saying I have skills in that department, but I am proud of my minor accomplishments. I’m planning on a Melissa photo shoot pretty soon, so in the meantime I will post one of the last ones I took of my photo coach before we moved.
