Come on. You didn’t think the photo shoot was going to go smooth did you?
Nothing about me or my life is smooth.
My dance moves are anything but smooth. My comebacks are smoothless and lately, life has been quite bumpy, but that’s ok, smooth is not my style.
My life wouldn’t be mine if everything went smoothly.
Plain and simple, the photo-shoot was a bust. It just wasn’t as good as I dreamed it would be in my mind.
I got some good shots, but nothing that I was looking for.
Here are 5 things that could of gone a little smoother for us.
1. The sun. As an amateur photographer I prefer to do most of my photography outdoors using natural light. It’s just easier that way for me. I don’t like messing with light bulbs, backdrops and umbrellas. I want to learn these things eventually, but first I want to learn about natural light. A bright sunny day right now is not my friend. I kept looking up at the sky trying to read the light. If you stand here the sun will be here and bounce off of this and then bounce here and there and everywhere. Obviously, I just need more practice, or clouds, and lots of ‘um.
2. Bad location for dress-wear. The location of the shoot was a park I use to go to when I was a kid. It’s a park with water and rocks and slippery surfaces, which meant I had to give the kids strict instructions to be careful and to not move much.
Three seconds after I said that Gracie slipped on the rocks and fell into a puddle of water.
Yeah, she’s smooth just like her mother.
