Nearly anything in life can be beautiful, depending on how you see things. Taking little bits of life, feeling passionate about things, connecting with our emotions, and then being able to find the beauty in the smallest of things, we should all strive towards. Becoming enlightened and connecting with the world around us, feeling at peace, relaxed, comfortable, and zen are also things that we should all desire to feel and embrace. Remember that, life is short, but it can be more beautiful and much more full of love and peace if we stop everything once in awhile, take a deep breath, hold it in for a few seconds, slowly exhale, embrace some of the beauty that this world has to offer, and learn to find the beauty in everything, and everyone.
Today, I went to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, in Los Angeles. It was so breathtakingly beautiful, and the weather was so lovely that it only made the view over-looking Los Angeles even more enjoyable. Today’s photoshoot was really fun, even though I was once again behind and in front of the camera. Crazy, right? Hey, in a good way.
I actually really enjoy taking pictures, but also posing for shots. And I just love being able to have all of the control behind the camera to capture what I want to share with others. Having a photographer can be completely awesome as well. But there’s something to be said about being able to run the whole show so to speak, and make decisions at the last second as to what time and date to shoot, where to shoot, and as far as location. As well, attire, makeup, hair, and all of the poses are all things that I can think up as I go along or perhaps if I’d planned ahead and thought things through.
I hope you enjoy my latest shoot.
