So God Made a Photographer...
And on the 9th day God looked down on his planned Paradise in Magalia and said, "I need someone to capture images of wonderful things and tragic things." So, God made a photographer.
God said I need Digital Dreams Photography to get up before dawn and capture that golden light and work all day in the elements (scorching sun, rain, and even snow), download files, edi...t and then edit again down to the best of the best, tone, deliver, and then archive those images working well into the night. So, God made a photographer.
I need somebody with strong back. Strong enough to carry multiple cameras, lenses, and lighting gear, yet gentle enough to put subjects at ease... everyone from little children to time strapped executives. Somebody to deal with demanding clients, small budgets, and ever increasing costs of new equipment, new computers, and new software... and telling them no problem... and mean it. So, God made a photographer.
God said, "I need Digital Dreams Photography shape light, use a hot shoe or off-camera flash... make a light modifier out of cinefoil, scrap paper and gaffers tape. And... who, at busy season, will finish his forty-hour week by Wednesday evening. Then, pain'n from carrying all of that heavy pro gear, put in another forty hours. So, God made a photographer.
God had to have Digital Dreams Photography ride to the middle of nowhere at a moments notice to photograph and get the assignment in ahead of the deadline and yet somehow have time to blog, answer emails, and continue marketing. So, God made a photographer.
It had to be Digital Dreams Photography, photograph properly-exposed and in-focus pictures with story-telling ability using available light (that is... any light that is available, with some needing to be plugged in)... and not cut corners. Someone to conceptualize and analyze, compose and expose... to bounce and fill and modify and control the light and know how to read a histogram. Somebody to burn a CD and then finish a hard days work with a five-mile drive to the nearest FedEx.
Digital Dreams Photography tries to spend time with her family, who'd laugh and then sigh... and then respond with tired eyes, when she tells her kids to spend there life "doing something other than what everyone else does." So, God made a photographer.
