Some time ago, I left the 9 to 5 working world in order to try my hand at being entirely freelance. Somehow I haven't starved yet, and I keep paying the rent, and so long as these things happen I can't really complain because it means I can go to the beach on a Tuesday and take photos of jewelry on top of 12 foot rocks by the surf.
And I discovered that ACE hardware carries 3/4" thick rope, which makes a lovely sailing ship style ocean side prop. I got to toy with different sorts of light as the sun set, and I had been wanting to do some fish and octopus photos with a more ocean-appropriate set then my usual 'old things on tiles'.
Granted I ended up taking mostly photos I could probably have figured out how to take at home (if I could find a nice big flattish rock...) but I was at the BEACH which made it more fun.
And left me today at home to take photos of myself in the alley by my house, wearing jewelry, and pretending I have some sort of modeling skill.
I promise, the very next blog post will have something about process and making things and information you might actually be interested in reading. Really.
