I’m kicking off this Friday with part one of my Marfa Texas experience. I was actually super happy to know that Clayton Austin didn’t have any styled/editorial shoots up his sleeve. And instead, that we were going to have photo challenges and more lifestyle photography.
I think I had way too much fun and paid the price for it the following day after my arrival. I was not good company and wish I had been myself so I could truly explore Marfa like I wanted. I felt as if I lost a full day, still took some really good notes despite feeling like I was going to die, however, I did miss out on many photo ops. But the photos that I did get–are priceless. They mean so much to me because I walked away from the workshop feeling like I understood what I wanted out of life. And I don’t mean, what I want out of the business or how to balance work and life. Not even how to book the right clients–this was different. Every image now reminds me of the decision I’m making moving forward. The decisions I make at home. The decisions I make when I connect with people because this life is so so short.
For today though…I’m blogging on this sweet lady who allowed me to snap some photos of her while we were out at Stargazer’s Field. Also, I realized I took the 1 minute challenge. Not intentionally but it just worked out that way. What I got out of it was creating a series of unique photos within a short amount of time.
I’d say, I did quite well. You guys…there is so much I really want to share about my experience in Marfa Texas and so much insight that I took away from the workshop experience. I’m going to save it for another post. So you’ll have to tune back in and follow!
