The Salt Flats

I don't mean to brag but I think that these photos are lovely. They turned out just how I envisioned them... Dramatic, dark and yet beautiful! It was a LONG day and we both have the sunburns to prove it! But it was so worth it! I loved working this shoot and I loved that I brought to life an idea that has been stuck with me for months! There are SOOO many photos to choose from! I love them all!

And OMG! Hayley will forever be one of my best friends and my number 1 model! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful friend. We had such a blast shooting this! And afterwards we went to Wendover and played the penny slots! I won 10 cents! Haha

Anyway, after all this, there is still that internal struggle, "Am I good enough?". I think of my friend Jennifer and how perfect and lovely her photos are. And even though I know that we have two totally different styles (we are from different planets!) I can't help but wonder what it would be like to see like she does and shoot like she does. I actually feel this way about all my photographer friends. I have so many talented and amazing friends.

Whatever, that is not the point. The point is that you do what you love with the support of the ones that you love and suddenly EVERYTHING is possible....

I am proud of this shoot no matter what!

I don't ride rides. They make me sick and I just don't enjoy that feeling. I mean, I will go on the wimpy rides like the haunted house or the Ferris wheel. But you can forget about roller coasters! Anyway, since I don't ride the rides I just take photos on Lagoon day.

PS One fun thing about having a digital camera is that I can shoot in color and then switch to black and white whenever I feel like it. I still love film though, that is my true love.
