In addition to working in a familiar medium, I have been doing some work in some (ok, one) unfamiliar medium as well. My especially fantastic mother and her business partner are event planners and authors, and for their most recent article for M Magazine I was asked to take pictures. I've got to say, being billed as a contributing photographer for a magazine is pretty cool.
Yes, I took this picture. Yes, it appeared in a magazine. Yes, I am gloating.
In addition to this, my brother (an amazing photographer even though he's only had his own camera for like 8 days...jerk) and I did another photo shoot for my mom today for the October issue of M Magazine. Yeah, it was a little weird to be doing a Halloween themed dinner party in July, but the pictures were really cool. I mean, who doesn't like things that are neon green?
Anyway, the point of this post, besides the gloating? (Again, sorry for being so gloaty) To tell you, my friends, nay, to ENCOURAGE you to find ways to exercise the creative part of your brain, even if the ways you do it are out of the ordinary (or out of your ordinary behavior). Mental deep knee bends (or lunges, if that's the way you roll) may be painful (brain sweat is, well, creepy...and awesome) or exhausting, but in the end you absolutely won't regret it.
P.S. EDTHR friends have been on my mind a lot lately. Miss you all times a thousand. Big love from California.
