A few weeks back, I shot this adorable restaurant in the Gramercy area. As a photographer every shoot is something new and different. I take away new knowledge every time. When I shoot restaurants they rarely have the funds to pay stylists. So I have to be both. I would say it's not my strongest skill, but I do think I am getting better and better with practice. Designing my home and having an eye for details have been beneficial in this area. But styling for photos is entirely different and new territory for me. Creating different levels, composition and focal points. The best way to learn I have found is looking at other peoples work and gaining inspiration, and through tons of practice.
Everyone starts out somewhere and it's the road along the way that is important. I can be pretty hard on myself about my work. But sometimes you need to step back and look at your accomplishments. I realize that I have come a pretty long way in a short period of time. I have to give myself a little pat on the back. Instead of only thinking about the future and where I want to be and how I will get there. Trying to find my particular style and where I want to take my work is the next step. I am on that road and learning as I go, being as passionate as I can be and hopefully it will lead me to good places.
