Getting Through The Fog
A few weeks ago we had a day where the fog never cleared. My photography plan for the day was ruined, but that didn’t mean that I still couldn’t make something out of the day. I went for a drive in the country. These were roads that I used to drive years ago when this was still a photo a day blog. I used to drive around and look for something interesting to make photos of. Here I had a photo story idea in mind. I wanted some photos to show what the day looked like out there. I knew the preset that I would use, and the look that I was going for. This idea might not be for everyone, but it was a fun way to get out there and be creative for a couple of hours.
Down The Road
As I was making this photo I was thinking about how it kind of fits in with what I am feeling about photography right now. I am just driving down the road with no real idea what is ahead. As of the first of the year the business will be no more. I had goals that I had to meet to keep it going this year, and I didn’t even come close to them. Covid pretty much gave the business the mortal wound, but it has taken a while to bleed out. This is not the end of my photography though. I will still be out there making photos, but it will just be in a different capacity. This is not a sad thing at all. I have done things on the sports side of photography that I would never have thought possible. It was a heck of a ride, but all rides must come to an end. My goal for 2022 is to make photos like this story, and just get out there as I did when this blog first started. I have found that I used my sports photography as a crutch to make content for this blog. Even if I wasn’t working an event I would show up just to get some photos in. That is a lazy way to do things, and I like the idea of having to get out there to look for photo ideas again. I am excited for this year, and where it could lead me. 2022 will be the year where I get out there and create a little more.
