today i was thinking about the photographs that i have taken. if i could only pick a few, which ones would i chose that makes me not only seem like a better photographer than i really am, but also represents the type of photography i want to do in the future? i couldn't/can't decided at all. then i started thinking about food and my food blog. i haven't looked at that blog in forever. ireallywanttoeatsomeofthatfood and not the food i've been eating. whenever i look at food pictures (there has to be a better word for that...food photography sounds wrong too) i always think of how much i love photographing food and how i want to do it more, but then when i'm actually photographing food it's like oooahhhhhh this is so hardddd i can't do thisssss why am i doing thissss???? but that was awhile ago, so maybe i should give it a shot again?
so right now i am trying not to work because i know i'm not going to get paid for it, but i'm having a really difficult time resisting. so i thought i'd try to write a decent post instead.
yesterday i photographed a family of 25. that is a lot of people.
everyday for lunch at zion ponderosa they serve cookies. most of the time they're way overdone and definitely not soft. but i still eat them. they probably have drugs in them or something, and that's why i still eat them even when they're gross.
and now i've remembered why i never write on this blog. i just am not a writer.
i realized that i start a lot of things out with "so."
so...i need business cards and a website. and money to pay for both. and clients to make both worthwhile. and photo skills to be able to get clients.
so today while i was cleaning cabins i saw about four ipods, and it made my thoughts float in the direction of i-really-want-an-ipod. if i had an ipod i would listen to music and books all the time and the boring parts of life wouldn't be so boring. that seems like a pretty good justification for buying one, right?
or i could just say i have to have one because everyone else has one.
so i figure it's about time that i explain what i'm doing this summer. most people who read this already know, so that's why i haven't posted anything so far about my summer.
right now i'm working at zion ponderosa ranch resort. it's right on the east border of zion national park. i'm working as the photographer, but i'm also doing housekeeping because i don't have enough to keep me busy. or so they say. it's a little complicated, but hopefully things will get sorted out soon.
so anyway, if you happen to be staying at zion ponderosa, you should put me to work! i take group pictures and pictures of people having fun doing activities, and i'm supposed to be running around taking random pictures that just might include you.
last weekend i traveled to southern utah where i am currently residing. on the way, i stopped at alyssa's house and stayed for a few days. prom was not very long ago and her and others wanted some pictures. melody came over and did alyssa's hair and makeup, and then i took some photos!:
