The gloomy skies and heavy rain outside my window right now has me thinking of sunnier times. Here in Northwest Ohio, we’ve had some pretty amazing sunsets in recent weeks. I found myself occasionally pulling off the side of the road just to grab an image or two.
So I haven’t been shooting a lot of pictures lately. I’m not entirely sure why that is. Certainly I’ve been busy with other things, but to be honest, I simply haven’t felt that pull to get out and shoot like a usually do. I seem to go through these ‘down periods’ with other things in my life as well. It’s hard to explain. Maybe it’s just a natural rest period before another burst of creativity. Whatever it is, I’m pushing myself to get back out there and start making some images.
Last night capped off the most musically satisfying year of my life.
Let me explain. If you’ve been following the blog at all you know that my two great passions in life are music and photography (family, faith, etc… notwithstanding). As a musician, I’ve had a number of cool opportunities throughout my life, but this year takes the cake. From festivals, to arenas to stadiums, I got to play the kind of shows that I only dreamed of.
Last weekend I shot the 10:45 service at CedarCreek. I love shooting live music. Being a musician myself, I’m drawn to everything about that kind of environment. The lights, the sound. All the enegy and passion the artists put into a performance. It sure makes for great photographic opportunities.
