New Beginnings – Monthly Photo Challenge Blog Hop – Menlo Park Photographer
This year I am working on some exciting projects and this month’s photo challenge theme is totally fitting for the things that 2012 has in store.
1. I am working on my senior capstone project which is required for graduation at ASU (finally getting my degree in GIT!) I will be documenting part of its progress on this blog as it relates to photography but the “big picture” project is to help carry on inter-generational life stories of native Americans through InterGen Legacy Project.
2. I will be making a bigger effort to focus more on commercial photography. My goal is for it to be at least 75% of my work with family portraiture taking up the remainder.
3. Work and practice more on my studio lighting. I have owned a set of studio lights for about three-four years now and have not really put them to use as they should be. Honestly, I typically only break them out for location work when fulfilling the needs of my longtime client in Phoenix. So, in tune with this month’s challenge, I will be using my studio lights to put into practice things I’ve learned in workshops and during my internship and courses at ASU like more advanced studio lighting.
So, I present my theme, “New Beginnings” using my 9 month old daughter as my model (who is an excellent case study for working with difficult models who do not like to take direction! lol).
