Finding Courage To Be A Photographer « Photofocus

Are you being held back from your dreams by fear? Your dream doesn’t have to be photography-it could be anything at all.  There’s a million reasons to not try and pursue your dreams, but none of them are  valid.  It’s hard to turn off that negative self talk (especially if you are female), but you must learn to ignore it.

Find encouragement in this short blog post about finding courage to be…….yourself.

Some Girls Just Want to Have Fun

You could never prove so many people’s prejudice against pit bulls by this dog. She was sweet and playful. My friend also has a pit bull that is very sweet and extremely smart.

Too many people write this breed off because of the actions of their OWNERS! No matter the breed, when a dog doesn’t behave or is vicious, look at their owner-that is where the fault usually lies.

So, don’t judge a book by its cover

A Furry Model

We have monthly photography workshops in our town hosted by a former film photographer and teacher.  Several times a year he sets up studio lights and backgrounds and we are all invited to bring a model to shoot.  One lady brings her handsome champion miniature collie to pose.  Dante sure knows how to ham it up, too!  And, he is probably the best behaved model there.

I edited with Topaz Simplify 4 (love it!) and added a texture from the Odds and Ends texture set by Shadowhouse Creations.
