So here I am again, at the start. Except, except, it isn’t I suppose. I have not picked up my camera for months, work, life, money, gets in the way and I have missed it. So much. But unlike the start, I begin again with a few advantages. I know how to use my camera.
Sure, skills need polishing and refinement and yes, my experience of studio lighting has not been what anyone would call advanced, but yet, I find that the minute I hold my camera, none of that matters. I remember, and more importantly I feel the joy and love of taking photos again. I don’t proclaim to have any particular talent or intuitive feeling towards the creative flow others can engage, only that I have missed how I have felt, and feel when I have the opportunity and time to take photos.
I was very lucky to have been asked to do a shoot of the wonderfully accomplished Matthew Greeney, juggler extraordinaire(!) last Sunday and it was wonderful! It reminded me of a significant part of my life I have neglected of late, and what better way to get back on the horse as it were!
