Now that I'm officially a Portland photographer (woohoo!) I've been trying to get out and 1) enjoy where we live while 2) shooting more personal work. You'd think this would be the first thing on my list, but it's one of the hardest things for me to do. Shoot more digital? Sit in front the computer more to edit them? I'd rather grab my film camera and send them off. But in an effort to challenge myself creatively, I'll be trying to get out and shoot an area at least once a month. To start it off we went out to a local spot on a rainy day with a lens I don't like... and I actually like the results. I know it's been quiet around here, but hopefully I'll be inspired as we settle in more and more into our new home. For now, you can see a piece our rainy Sunday below.
