I am certainly drawn to the quiet and the simple.
For a long time I struggled with the fact that I'm not like other photographers. It doesn't come naturally to me to make people laugh unless its done in a totally genuine way. Im not a clown and I'm not an entertainer. It was good when I finally let that go and just tried to me myself, its my greatest "skill" and its all our greatest "skill".... being ourself. No one else out there is the same as us so why not use it to our advantage. If I could give a new photographer any advice it would be to work out who you are...... then let your personality speak through your images. Don't worry about what others are doing, they have their own skill set that is different to yours. If we compare ourself to others we will ALWAY feel insecure, we will ALWAYS feel like we are chasing something but we can't quite attain it. Be yourself, you are your greatest asset.
My 2c worth for today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
This is Autumn, I know how fitting is that for a May shoot!!! I asked her mum if we could try a new location on the other side of the Brisbane River..... I know, who would of thought there was another side? hehe. Its absolutely stunning and I can't wait to share it with more clients in the future. One problem, the beach is tidal so we have to not only think about the sunset but also the tides!!! The perils of shooting on location :)
When you get it right.... well as you can see the results are gorgeous! Introducing "Auty Bear" as her parents and brothers call her.... x
