The thing is, I can already achieve what I need to technically with my current equipment used for my client shoots. I can't get the same quality and accuracy with a point-and-shoot, but what I can get is something a little more warm and fuzzy, so bear with me.
The ability to shoot whatever I want, whenever I want, reminds me of who I am as a photographer and what I'm drawn to. It also lets me explore new compositions angles, etc. This type of play time helps me grow as a photographer and feeds the love I have for this art form, which will then filter into the work with my clients. Win, WIN!
I'll be posting plenty of my point-and-shoot experiments. I also need to come up with a better name than "point-and-shoot experiments". Maybe something scientific like "beaker shots". Hooray!
Immdediately after leaving the store where I bought the camera (a Canon PowerShot G10), we went across the parking lot to get pancakes. It was a good day.
Later that eve, we met up with the lovely Lynn Talley for some adult beverages. She has the BEST smile, which led to this next shot. The G10 definitely has some graininess issues at high ISOs (as you can see), but I'm interested more in compositions with this toy. Lynn was the first victim of a project I'm calling "guerilla portraits". I'll post her pic and a couple more of those soon. If I see a cool spot or lighting or whatever and you are nearby, I might be grabbing you to pose for one!
Hey, no pictures of my feet yet!
