My friend Jen responded to a model call I put out on Facebook. I took what I learned from shooting underwater earlier this week and applied it to shooting today. Still, shooting underwater is kind of a pain. There’s holding your breath, trying not to make bubbles, trying not to float when trying to pose, no viewfinder or LCD screen for the GoPro, waiting for the sun to come out from behind the clouds, the list goes on. Still, we both had a ton of fun, and would love to do it again.
I’m discovering more and more lately that you can never really understand just how far you’ve come until you look back.
I was going through my mountains of old photos while updating my portfolio, and I stumbled upon a cache of my old work. Honestly, I have no idea how I ever thought any of this was anything even close to passable. The difference between the quality of some of these simply astounds me. It’s that feeling of satisfaction that comes from knowing that all the hard work and sacrifice really is paying off.
