Some days I’ve got so many photo shoot ideas, I can’t keep track of them all. Other days (like today) I struggle to come up with something interesting and start to get nervous as the clock ticks down toward midnight.
I did what I frequently do when I’m stuck for ideas and I went searching for help, first in Ron’s office. As I was asking him what I should shoot for today, I saw one of my custom scrapbook albums from the very first book signing I did at a scrapbook store in Santa Rosa, California. It was perfect and another chance for me to use my new portable lighting studio.
This album was a custom project we created for the people who came out to my book signing for Real Women Scrap. What a moment of pure joy. I’m sure I was grinning ear to ear the entire time.
Seeing this album and these images makes me a bit nostalgic for the days when I spent more time hands on with my scrapbook paper and supplies. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love everything I’m learning with photography and the hands on aspects of improving my craft. I just think it’d be good for me to find more time to bring the two together. I’m thinking it’s probably time for another Real Women Scrap TV episode too! What do you think?

Images: David Beckstead, an amazing photographer in his own right, decided that he is going to start doing more intentional study of photographers from the past. He posted his first review of Avedon’s work on his Facebook page today. I can’t wait to hear about his journey and discovery of “old” photographers!
