Trying something New - Long Island Photographer | Hello Olivia Photography
I'm trying something new!!! There are so many amazingly talented photographers out there that have ventured into video in the last few years and I have put it off long enough. I'm making a collective effort to really learn how to make films!!!!
Shooting still photos give you a visual idea of whats going on, but films give you so much more. I have a LOT to learn, but I'm loving the experience so far :)
Check out my January video. I made mistakes. I have massive issues with keeping things steady, but I've learned SO MUCH already. I have no idea why on earth I waited so long to take the plunge.
To really learn the basics and get a good foundation, I'm starting a class this month with the wonderfully talented Xanthe Berkeley and can't wait to learning more about shooting film. I set a personal goal of one completed film project a month to share. Considering how much I like these, I may shoot more. I love having these visual time capsules!!
Now on with the 365...
We had snow this week on Long Island, and I had my camera at the ready to capture our everyday moments:
Thinking more about goal setting - It's really been so important to me to document and shoot images everyday - that sometimes I get so focused on just getting that photo, or editing that photo or updating facebook or my blog, that it is taking time away from ACTUALLY DOING THINGS. I've made a personal commitment to my family and myself to be less connected to social media in general so fingers crossed that I keep up with it :)
