In a funk
So this weekend I had a photo shoot booked on Fri for a family of 5, I mentioned that one in an earlier post and expressed my concern since I've never done a photo shoot with that many subjects before. Unfortunately the rain came Friday afternoon and didn't leave till this morning. I tried to shoot the three girls (9 months, 2, and 4 year old) in their bed rooms but the lack of light and lack of interest they had in me proved to be too much for this inexperienced photographer to overcome. I got a few cute pictures but overall I was just not happy with the outcome so thankfully we've agreed to re shoot on a day with some sun. Then Saturday evening my dear friends mother was getting married in a lovely Japanese tea garden and had asked me to be the photographer. Again the rain didn't let up for one moment and I have no protection for my camera for such an issue. I tried, I truly did, but I don't have the tools or knowledge to shoot great pictures indoors. I feel horrible, like a total failure. Perhaps it's the time of the month and the hormones that come with it thats causing me to be so down about both of these shoots but it's really got me in a funk and I can't seem to shake it.
