Ray Roberts // Night Lights

ARS_RRSP_140321_5258

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!
