Elle and I were itching to sleep out beneath the stars, so we made a last minute trip up to Lake Ray Roberts State Park to do some weekend car camping. Not a bad spot at all. Beautiful lakefront campsites, nice neighbors, and all the stars we could handle.
I even played around a bit, experimental painting with cell phone lights, headlamps, and flashlights.
Sometimes I forget how important it is for me as a photographer to still get out there and “play”. I get used to the dog and pony show of being a professional where I feel like I have to act as though I know absolutely everything there is to know about light and photographic processes. The truth is; I am always learning and growing. And the minute I reach a point where I know everything… well, I imagine I can just pack it in and lie down to die… because it certainly won’t be challenging and fun anymore.
I sure hope that day doesn’t come anytime soon. I’m looking forward to “playing” and learning more this year. Join me!
