Entry number 68 for the 2022 365 Black & White Challenge is a photograph from a quick walk I took to get some photos for this blog.
I took a quick walk today to grab some more photographs for the blog. I should have known that I shoot better when not shooting to a deadline. I did like this one though. I knew what I wanted and waited for the moment to happen. Three quick images were taken and this was the one closest to my vision.

I think daily about throwing in the towel on the 365 day black and white challenge. I’ve just got too much going on at the moment.
But then I shift my thinking around to try and understand that this is the grounding moment of my day. I turn off any music, podcast or video that might be playing and just type. Sometimes I know what’s going to come out and sometimes I don’t. Today is a “don’t” day.
Last weekend was tough with my daughter being a little sickie, both the wife and I losing a lot of sleep due to this and both of us having shoots we needed to rock regardless of the lack of said sleep. I’ve long since given up mentioning how I actually feel on client shoots when asked as they don’t need to know I’m drawing on years of experience just to survive the shoot. Especially when it’s something as mundane (to me) has headshots. Seriously, hats off to professional headshot photographs. They do INCREDIBLE work and it beats me as to how they can bring it day after day. Mind you having said that, most of the headshot photographers I know would never shoot a wedding, whereas I LOVE shooting weddings.
Still learning the new software, but I’m enjoying how the photos are coming out of it. I’m torn between my old and new software at the moment and may actually rely on the old software for bulk/big shoots and the new software for one-off/small shoots. I’m still yet to decide. Adobe, the big mega-conglomerate software company sent back my repaired wedding and ASD catalogues last night … but I’m like a scorned cat. I don’t trust again that easily. At least it looks like I don’t have to restart the wedding.
Another day looms ahead of me and I’m contemplating how I’m going to get through it. Had a rough time falling asleep last night so my required hours of sleep was not achieved. I fell short by about two hours and I’m feeling it!
But that’s enough negativity. I’ve woken up for another day on the planet, and that’s a good thing.
