I know now that it isn't easy shooting towards the sun. I couldn't see what I was shooting.
I just sat behind these guys who didn't waste their time clicking away. So there I was observing the crowd and the photoshoot thinking to myself, "I'm such a loser for thinking I'm the lesser one for not having these accessories to play with." I know my 50mm won't let me down. I know I've been able to take decent photos with it before. I know that I'm comfortable taking photos of a live model doing their own styles-my kids are my models. So I got up from my little monologue and started clicking. At first rather blindly...
Then I got into the momentum of things.
I'm not particularly proud of this. As you can obviously see; exposure, exposure. (Sigh)
I took a lot of photos that evening, once the sun got down lower and I wasn't squinting so much. Went home feeling a bit like a serious hobbyist after seeing this shot in my viewfinder.
Just a tiny bit.
Now, if only photoshop was my new 'muse'...
