So I was hoping to have something done before midday, but it was not to be and now I’m here writing. In a lot of pain; it’s from being on my feet for most of yesterday, but it’s a good pain, I think. It reminds me that I need to start really working toward spending less time sitting down and more time being active, but active where I can; I don’t want to overexert myself.
So a lot of moving about and standing and there was little sitting, but it was good. It was good exercise and it was good learning and all that stuff, and it makes me desire getting into regular and hopefully consistent photography work. Obviously there is the enjoyment of doing photography, but there also is the desire to get out of an office job and into something I’m much better at doing.
Of course there now is the process of going through all the photos I took, which I feel may have been far too many, and processing the ones that work and sending them off but it’s still a vital part of the process of learning and so it is something that I welcome. I might not later, but right now I’m completely down for it and so it soon will be something I dive into. There still are, as always, other things I need to deal with.
I was hoping that most of this would be bitter complaining regarding being sore, but I don’t have anything to go on with that. I’m sore, I’m in pain but it’s alright. Perhaps that speaks volumes about how much I enjoyed the experience; I don’t know. Maybe it means that I’m just not in the right frame of mind to complain about something that is rather minor. It’s certainly quite prominent, but ultimately it’s a minor thing and I’ll be alright in a day or so.
I guess I just don’t have much to say right now, and maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe it’s better that I stop and work on other things so as to be able to get on with the getting on and all that. I don’t think I can write much about my enjoyment of yesterday’s events as… well, I feel like I’ve covered it well enough.
Ultimately with yesterday I’m hoping I’ve done well enough to be able to get more work. Just need to keep working at it and chipping away and maybe, hopefully I’ll get to where I want to be and then I’ll be set. It’s hard work but it’s good work and it’s something that I’m quite capable of doing. To be honest I’m more tired from the lack of sleep last night than I am from working on the shoot. Maybe over time that will change, but at least right now it’s something I’m quite keen to keep on doing and so… yeah.
Should’ve taken far less photos though. That is gonna be a slog.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:02:46
Slow again and I think that is in part the combination of being sore and tired.
I think that’s also why this just kind of stays really flat the whole way through.
