Patty called me from work last week to ask me if I’d be willing to take photos on Saturday for the family of one of her coworkers. This was just the kind of experience I was looking for, so i said, ‘sure’.
Our neighbors across the street had seen the Christmas photos I took of the family next door, and they asked if I would take similar photos of their family. The night of December 22, 2017 presented the opportunity. So, I reassembled much the same equipment configuration out in the street in front of their house, and we took some photos. Afterwards, we went inside a took a few more shots around their Christmas tree. Every such opportunity gives me more chances to improve my technique.
