I am always about simplifying everything I can about my business. I have been looking into smaller cameras with great image quality, just so it is a less intrusive process when I am photographing someone. I have also been slowing down my sessions, I don’t rush through them like I used to. So it takes me an extra 15 minutes sometimes, so what, I have been getting better images from each shoot.
As I simplify I notice my creativity grows. I have more ideas, I start to think more outside of the box. Since I tend to thrive off of creative ideas, even if they are just mildly creative, I tend to get a little obsessed and push myself even harder to simplify the process even more!
What does this mean? It means I am going to keep experimenting, keep shooting editorials for fashion magazines and still push my boudoir business. Everything else seems to be secondary at the moment. If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it is to trust your gut and to follow your heart. No matter where it leads you, apparently that is where you wanted to be.
