Last night I completed the design for my name/logo for Anita’s Focus. There remains work on the gallery page for I think there is just too much stuff but it is much of my work over the past 5 years. So what if much of the road side scenes were taken from my car window. It’s my collection of forgotten moments; images I receive comments that say, “it’s gone now”. Maybe, but I still have the image, something to stir your mind, your heart.
My goal is almost met and I’m running right on schedule. By October 1, 2011, I will be working professionally specializing in product photography but will be scheduling family portrait sessions mostly outdoors. Weddings don’t interest me, but I am getting calls for them. With that, the challenge of the price sheet remains.
It has changed my vision. For several years I lost that connection I had looking at my subject through a lens, any lens. Maybe it is the season, a new camera, software, but that daydreaming through the lens has returned. This time it’s different for I’m much more serious about the quality of the image and need to create something unexpected.
Many times when looking on previous images, I can recall my emotions at that time. Here is something from those days. White Sands. The Snow Cat was with me. It was a hot afternoon and I could not leave her in the car while exploring the dunes. I remember almost everything about time there, who I called, what I had to drink, and the direction of the wind.
