As a photographer, it’s very difficult for me to hand my camera to someone else. First, there’s the money factor. My camera is not a cheapo thing and I get nervous when other people handle it. Second, there’s the trust factor. I have a hard time trusting that anyone else can capture the shot that I see. Let’s face it – they can’t. Even the best photographer in the world can’t get exactly the image that I want – only I can do that.
However. I needed a head shot so last week when Dale and I were in Rockport and I took that great picture of him, I relented and gave him the camera to take one of me.
And, it’s okay. It’s not exactly what I had in mind but I think it captures the way he sees me and that works since he adores me and maybe that will make other people adore me.
Why did I need a head shot, you may ask? And why do I want other people to adore me, you may also ask? Because I have launched my photography website. Yes, Carole Julius Photography is now a thing.
You may also have noticed this morning that the blog has a new look. It’s pared down and cleaned up and it matches my photography website. I hired the awesome and talented Carrie to design the themes for both and she has done a fabulous job.
How’s that for a Monday morning announcement?
