Bald Is Beautiful Photography

Sweet Shot Tuesday. . . Getting Lost In It all!

Posted on Sep 20, 2011 in BIB Blog | 10 comments

Sometimes I just get lost, that’s all I can say!  With the hustle and bustle of working a full time job, a part time job, starting a part time photo business, and trying to be a dad, I just get lost.

Well, that’s what happened over the last 8 weeks, I got lost.  I decided it was time to move on from a Blogger hosted account and decided to jump into the frying pan known as  Wordpress.  Let’s just say this and get it out of the way, “Yes, I’ve said one too many bad words in the last 8 weeks over my site”.   Wow, I feel better.  Release and acknowledgement is really good for the soul!

But I do want to tell you what I enjoy about being lost.  It’s the freedom, growth and creativity that comes during those times of abandonment.  I know that does not make much sense, but hopefully you will understand.  While creating my new site, I had to decide what I wanted.  What links I wanted to include, descriptions of service I wanted to offer, basically the set up from scratch.  I’m happy with what I’ve got, but I will tell you this, this site is going through growing pains and changes will occur.  Puberty has come to the BIB-Photography website, and hopefully we will all survive!

Another thing I get lost in is editing photos.  I love taking a sooc image and seeing what I end up with.  When I first started this process, I received from pretty scathing comments on my photos, and it hurt.  But over the last 2 years of my journey, I’ve come to understand that only one person needs to be happy with my art work. . . ME!!!  Well except for the occasionally paying client, I’m the only one that needs to be happy!

For those that have known me and followed my photographic excursions, you know I love a good sunrise.  Well something fun and wonderful has happened over these last 8 weeks.  I am now leading a group of about 5- 15 different photographers out on the weekend searching for that remarkable life giving orb we call the sun!   What a grand and glorious thing to see my friends eyes light up when they get that perfect shot of blue hour.  Or when they figure out how to slow things down and blur the water.  All this is because of 2 internet friends, without the help, support and encouragement of Darcy (Life with 3 Boybarians) and Kent (Kent Weakley Photography), I would have never had this experience!  THANKS GUYS!!!

So without further ado, let me share with you some of my art/photos from this past weekends sunrise adventure.

So much for getting lost, I think I’ve finally found myself.  Hope all of you have a wonderful day and make sure you check out the other entries in this weeks Sweet Shot Tuesday. Make sure you comment on some of the other entries.  You never know how important your words of engorgement are and what they mean:~)

  1. Found you on Sweet Shot Tuesday … Been thinking of switching to WordPress myself. We shall see! Your shot is magnificent. I can’t imagine anyone would have anything negative to say about it. It’s perfect!

  2. Very Cool! I think it is very easy to get lost in editing…I love editing…it is always fun to see what the original photo is and what you can do to change it to be more unique!

  3. Beautiful work Scott! It was a pleasure to shoot with you and you’ve inspired me to get my site finished. I’ve left it hanging for too long!

  4. Totally love your photo! I could even consider becoming an early riser for just a chance of grabbing a photo like this.
    I am going to add your website to my Google Reader so I can see what you have to post next.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Well done! I love long exposures!

  6. Found you on Sweet Shot Tuesday. Liked your name. I tell my husband bald is beautiful. He doesn’t believe me. I enjoyed browsing through your photos. Great work. And grabbed your button for my website. I’ve got to get one of those buttons of my own sometime. Looking forward to your next entry on SST. You might also like Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.

  8. Those pictures are fantastic!!
    I’m fairly new to photography and just started participating in Sweet Shot Tuesdays where I found your picture. I can only hope to someday capture and edit with this much skill. Experiencing that is definitely worth waking up early on the weekend! I wish I could find a group near me to do that.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your Sweet Shots on Tuesdays.
