My 100 & Me [Week 22]

It’s been unseasonably warm these past couple of days and it will extend into next week. Days and weeks blur together like an out of focus lens that sometimes it’s hard to tell if this has happened in November before, or if it’s just another curveball 2020 has thrown us.

Rembrandt Lighting

It’s easy to get complacent with photography. You find something that works, or inspires you, or you take a job that requires you to specialize in one area of photography and you don’t continue to better your skills in others. I have been shooting so many live event and marketing images…
