ANTI-social Anxiety

I’ve been very reluctant to post any new work lately. I’ve been so disillusioned with all of “social media” Seriously wondering if it’s really worth it anymore? But whatever…😕

Spring Fling April 2015

Spring Fling April 2015 has come and gone yet again. This time it lasted for 2 long weeks. My goal was to attend as many times as I could during both day and night so I could shoot multiple times to get many different looks. Since I didn’t find out until the last minute that the event was going to last that long, I wasn’t able to go back as often as I wanted to. These photos represent my first day there which happened to be my most successful day.

My family and I arrived early on day one before all of the crowds poured in. I thought long and hard about whether or not I wanted to come back with all the people that usually attend but, I decided that at some point I would. Unfortunately at some point never came! I was very disappointed because there were plenty of photographic opportunities for me this year but I blew it. I am however very grateful for the shots that I was able to get this time. Editing these shots is an entirely different story… Working on the edits was very difficult this time. I wanted to try something different, a specific look I had in mind. It’s something that I’ve been longing to do for a while but never willing to actually sit down and do. I wanted each shot to have bold, bright colors so I edited every single shot in this gallery individually. This was not a batch edit. I NEVER edit this many photos individually! Whenever I post lots of pictures in a gallery I usually post them straight out of the camera with no adjustments. The reason why is because it’s far too time consuming and I feel like batch edits can’t possibly give each shot the special attention it deserves. This time each shot has it’s own signature color profile. It was very tiring but I’m happy I did it. Now I know I have the patience to actually sit down and do it and I feel that it will only help me later on during my post processing sessions.

You know, as photographers we all shoot for many different reasons. Most of us shoot for the love of it. We also shoot for ourselves first and foremost but, we hope that when we do release photos to our viewing audience they understand all the hard work we put into it. Sometimes our satisfaction comes from just knowing others “get it”. This was a hard one y’all! I hope someone out there “gets it”. As always I’d like to thank each and every person that stops by my blog and enjoys my work. Your views, messages, and support are greatly appreciated!!!
