This last week has been a busy week of taking photographs. It has been a lot of fun though.
Tuesday, I photographed a couple of teenagers. They were pretty mellow and cooperative, so that was good. I got some really good portraits of them.
Thursday, I photographed a 4 month old baby. She wasn't as cooperative as the teenagers, and she liked to really wiggle around. We had to take a couple of breaks with her so she could eat and get used to all the props. She didn't like laying on her tummy much, mostly her back. She was pretty interested in her hands, so they kept getting in the way. I did end up with quite a lot of good photos of her. She is a little cutie and she gave me some nice expressions.
After the photo shoot on Thursday, we grilled out steaks and had a nice dinner with the baby's parents. It was pretty yummy. I love a good steak any day of the week.
Friday night, I did a photo shoot for a charity event. It was the Eagan Relay For Life Walk Benefit for Cancer. It was a pretty moving event. I was amazed by all the people there. They had luminaries around the track that represented a person who had either survived or passed away from cancer. That was pretty incredible. They had names on them and were decorated really nice by the families and friends. I was at the event from 5 pm to a little after 10 pm. I was beat when I got home.
Today, I went to the Kickball Tournament in St. Paul and took some photographs of that event as well.
Tomorrow I am headed off to the Canterbury Downs for the horse races with my girlfriends that I went to Mexico with. That should be a pretty good time. I'm of course taking my camera with me, but not sure what kind of seats I'll have to get close up photos. I'm not going to worry too much about it, as this is just for fun and hanging out with the girls.
I have 2 possibly 3 photo shoots next week and them I'm done with photos for my portfolio. I'll have a pretty nice portfolio built to get started out. I really do enjoy photography, so it'll be fun to have it as a second job now. It'll help fund my girls trips.
