What is your most valuable photography resources?


As a photographer I live live live to get advice from a variety of resources like books, magazine, podcast, workshops and of-course wifey. Though these resources are designed to help me become a better photographer I will admit it can be a little overwhelming. To sift through variety of resources I find the most valuable source of feel good knowledge surrounding increasing my photography skills usually comes from my interaction with my clients. 


In fact, the advice can be a source of two way sharing through out the photo session. I try to listen to the client's styles and profiles and create images that will resonate with their inner being.  It challenges my photography skills and pushes me to consider techniques that I may not have considered before.  And of-course, I get almost immediate feedback on the technique, the design and style. 


For my next wedding session, my clients requested to leave the traditional "garden portraits" by the waste-side and instead use a concrete jungle theme to create contrast and depth for their wedding party portraits.  As I'm currently researching some unique spray painted backdrops I'm looking forward to the challenge.  Stay tuned for the results.

You would think having your birthday so close to Christmas limits the celebration of the day you were born.  But you would be wrong.  It allows for thoughtful and creative appreciation from your love ones.  I'm still beaming from my latest gift...my amazing mortar and pestle.  

After some intense research from watching Roger Mooking and Jamie Oliver, I've made over 10 different types of pestos and marinades.  And I can't wait to apply some more techniques to create my signature Jamaican/Grenadian jerk rub before bq season!!!

Next to portraits and weddings, I love images of food.  Look out for my future blogs post on food real soon.  Meanwhile take a look at some of my favourite foodie bloggers photography.

There are too many reasons why I love the holidays. 

  1. Giving thanks to Gods many blessings throughout 2010
  2. The effort our family goes through to give the ideal gift for all (it is so amazing to see our kids look for gifts that would be meaningful to the family)
  3. The reaction to the gifts (we all get to be kids again)
  4. The relaxation of reading and watching TV marathons (I got to catch up with previous Top Chefs episodes)
  5. The promise of a new year (a fresh round of family goals for 2011)
  6. Giving thanks to Gods blessings that he has in store for us 2011

Happy Holidays from One Thousand Words Photography
