Already 11 Days In…

…and I must admit that I am off to a shaky start at best…

I picked up a 26-inch Westcott Rapid Box for my birthday, and I have yet to assemble it and shoot…

I bought a used Nikon D300 (…yes, I did decide to stay with Nikon) and a used Nikon 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens and have taken 1 shot with it (of a house plant to see how it felt… no, not the plant… I wanted to see how the camera felt). I think there are issues with it, because the lens doesn’t seem to focus the way I think it should. I am going to switch lenses and see if it’s the lens or the camera…

I intended to attend Magfest 2017, but a super-light snowfall came, and I caught a MAJOR case of the lazies! Then family obligations started to pile up and I never got out of the house. Bummer. I did go on Sunday for a few hours, but never pulled my camera out once. I just hung out in the dealer’s room with a buddy of mine. I’m such a loser…

I have not shot a single soul since last year. I did sign up for another Scott Church Shootout. Really excited to be going back up to PA to shoot there. I would like to talk to Scott about shooting erotic. He’s kinda boss in that realm. I may also consider shooting film for the first time in decades…

I have a list of concepts and my phone is full of people who are NOT models… I need to get out more often. Thus far, I have been a bit anti-social. Getting over a sinus infection is adding to the misery, but I do need to get out. I’m not getting any better in Street Fighter 5… May as well spend that time acquiring social skills.

On th epositive side, I will be bringing a couple of models to the DC area for shoots later this month. I am hoping I can crank out a video piece as well as some nice shots!

I am charting my course for cracking into videography in 2017. I already finished my Adobe Premiere Intro course at Fairfax Public Access and I am looking forward to taking the advanced course as well as getting an intro to motion graphics with an Adobe After Effects course.

My day job has me seriously bummed. I know what this did to me before as far as zapping any motivation I had to move forward with anything. but I need to muster all I have to crack through the surface this year. I need to be better at all aspects in my life and become the powerhouse I wanna be! Thank you in advance for all of you involved!
