Keeping busy / by Helen Arase

I helped (mostly hung out and sometimes held a reflector) a husband-wife wedding photography team on Wednesday. It was really nice and they were very welcoming. I appreciated the advice and honesty they gave me about my life and how to plan it, or not.

It's endlessly entertaining to hear stories about how photographers got to where they are and their anecdotes from a "different time." I am always happily amused and then immediately saddened that many photographers started out as photojournalists and are now happy doing some other photography... I hope I too can find a way to stay true to my passions if I don't end up in news. 


Tomorrow I'm going to try to do some food photography. My sister is going to play chef and food stylist so we'll see if we get to the photo stage.
