Stuff I Gotta Do

A few weeks ago I read a funny post on SAA concerning how little photo-graphy we actually do as compared to the rest of what we do in order to tell people about our work and ourselves. In addition to actually taking a picture for this PAD project, I have to process it — that’s only every two weeks — talk about it here, maybe on Facebook and again on Twitter. I also try to keep my website ( current which means the PAD portfolio is updated every few days. Then there is the prep work. What to shoot? What to shoot? What to shoot? When I figure that out, then I think about how to shoot it. In many cases, it’s like working for a newspaper again. I look for events in Albuquerque. Then I go work the event and hopefully a picture reveals itself. Some days, it might be something much smaller. It’s Springtime now, so a lot of my pictures are about newness, rebirth and — of course — all things green. Sometimes I get very lucky and the picture finds me. Sometimes it’s a real struggle. Mostly, the process is enjoyable and it keeps me thinking even on days when that’s all I’m photographing.
