Wedding season is in full swing for me right now. Between prepping for Nate to take Ghost to dog shows (he got his first major last week!!) since I work every weekend now until November, photo editing, weekends spent shooting weddings and engagements (because for some reason everyone wants photos the last week of September through October) and then traveling down to Atlanta for a week for an engagement shoot and hanging out with Nate while he’s at a conference my school workload is definitely piling up. The next couple of weeks before midterms and our pre-midterm meeting I’m going to be playing some major catch up.
So anyway, I thought I would talk about what I have planned to work on this semester. Pretty much I want to keep working on what I’ve been doing the last few semesters with composite photos of the dogs. I still have a couple that I want to complete; including tree trimmers and lawnscapers and I need to do that asap before the season really changes.
I also want to reshoot the swimming pool one when I can get people in the pool and be able to control the camera. At the moment our pool is green and we are in the process of getting it cleared up so we shall see if that will be doable still.
So some images I have in mind to do this semester are:
- A rainy day scene where Nate or I is walking all four dogs. I like the idea of having rain boots on and carrying an umbrella and all the dogs doing something different. Like Louis walking really far behind, Luna way out front, Ghost drinking out of a puddle and maybe Jack jumping on Nate or I (whoever I decide to shoot as the character.)
- I really want to do a picnic scene out in a field. I think it would be cool to shoot it from above. Maybe it will be a two part one. Maybe Nate reading a book with Louis on his lap and leaning against one of the dogs while Ghost steals food from the picnic basket and Jack rolling around on his back on the picnic blanket. I also like the idea of doing one scene with lots of sky in the field and maybe Nate playing fetch with one or two of the dogs in the background and Louis sitting guard near the food and I don’t know what the others will be doing.
- I want to do a smaller interior scene where Nate is eating apples on a plate on the couch and all four dogs are surrounding him with several sitting on the ottoman, begging for food. I have it in my mind to shoot it from above.
So as of now those are the specific images I have in mind. I’m still brainstorming some. Doing a Halloween themed shoot or a couple of Halloween themed ones would be kind of fun. I also want to do some where both Nate and I are in the scene.
Hopefully I will have some actual work very soon!
