Panama City Florida: Photo Phriday: The Beach

Photo Phriday’s haven’t been a main focus on my blog for the past few months, primarily because everyone needs a break and this whole trying to have a kid but failing thing kind of derailed me for a while. Vacations however are terribly amazing for re-energizing my creative juices and this trip, being with Mr. Rogue and sharing our love for photography together, has given me a new burst of energy.

My own love of Photo Phridays and the ability they have to help me grow as a photographer aside I am also reviving Photo Phriday because my niece Ms. Pixie is interested in photography. Last year, the Fruits and Mr. Rogue and I, flew her out to LALA land and gave her a fancy camera for her high school graduation gift. Since then she has decided she will be attending Photography school. HURAH another artist in the family.

MS. PIXIE WORKING ON HER FIRST ASSIGNMENT – THE BEACH

Ms. Pixie and I are going to do weekly assignments to help both of us build a better stronger portfolio. Speaking of a portfolio I have finally completed a portfolio site on tumblr, see here ROGUEWOMANPHOTOGRAPHY, where I can send all those people interested in my photography. In the past I have sent them to my blog, but let’s be honest not everyone I mean while taking photos and interested in photography is interested in my wacky crazy world. This new site is only for the best of my photography. No writing, no talking, no sob stories and no random photos taken with my tiny point and shoot, which is totally not my best work. I’m excited with the quality of photos I have up there and I cannot wait to add to it in the future.

With four photographers in the house, Ms. Pixie, her fiancée Mr. Magic, Mr. Rogue and I there was always a buddy to go out and take photos with which was totally cool.

ME WORKING ON A PHOTOSHOOT WITH MR. DRAGON, MY NEPHEW

A hobby shared is a better hobby in my opinion. Conversations of theory, light, technique flew around all week. I was in heaven.

I had to laugh when Ms. Pixie started complaining a few days into the trip of leg pains. Often the best photos are low to the ground or high up and we had spent a good amount of time the previous day swatting, taking photos, standing to review the shots then squatting again to take some more. All that work results in a pretty good workout but I caught myself remarking that if I could do it at 32 then she certainly could at 19. In that moment I felt old... yup!

MS. PIXIE, WORKING OUT HER LEGS GETTING DOWN LOW FOR A SHOT

This week for our first Photography assignment, where eight photos are due, I picked the beach. It is not an easy assignment, there is the obvious water shot, there is sand stuff but then it starts getting really hard. You have to really push to be creative and I am excited with what both of us managed to get. Go ahead and try it sometime. Hope you enjoy.
