Seeds into Fruit

Today I have a lot to celebrate. At the beginning of this year I decided to take up photography as a hobby and today I worked my first official photo shoot. The most wonderful thing about this is that something that began as a whim, a “maybe I would like taking photos” is now not only something that I LOVE doing but now I can get paid for it too.

Because I was shooting indoors and floors in particular Mr. Rogue and I decided to purchase a new lens, a wide angle lens that is specifically geared towards taking architectural, interior rooms, and landscapes. Basically it can get more of the sides in a photo and it was perfect for this shoot. So not only am I taking professional photos I got another lens crossed off my list as well.

Now with that said this was not a huge photo shoot. It was just a minor project. Something for a small wood floor business owner. I did get to go to a mansion, sigh, gasp it was stunning. A home in the Pacific Palisades on over 10 acres of wooded land and the house is the home of a well to do architect. And just when I thought the house could not be any more beautiful I saw the wood floors. The photo is going to appear in some local advertising and if they are pleased enough with the outcome of my photos he wants to take me to a few other homes that he has done.

Yea for new adventures and for potentially being able to bring in some extra money with my hobby.

That's terrific to get paid for something you love to do. Everyone should be so lucky as to have a job they absolutely love as a hobby like that.
