Black & White Wednesday ~ My 'Swagger'...

the long road




Lately I've been THINKING...
A Glimpse in BW


I've been thinking that I REALLY love taking photographs...
I really LOVE editing them too ~
I get a kick out of watching each shot come ALIVE in front of my eyes, reminding me vividly of the moment I shot it!

Sweet-Shot


I've been thinking that I could MAYBE earn some pennies from this PASSION of mine (you know in my 'spare' time)...

Tiny-Dude Feet!


I've been thinking that maybe I'm ALMOST good enough...

...that my skill has DEFINITELY improved with time invested (and the new camera has helped a tad too!)...

BUT there is something else I MUST DO first...

I need to FIND my SWAGGER!

My pictures are great (well I think so ~ feel free to disagree!), they are lovingly crafted and display my passion, but somehow they still seem like cleverly edited SNAPSHOTS by a mother.

81/365 ~ Diggin' Dirt


I'm GUESSING people don't want to pay for snapshots they could take themselves ~ in this day and age where everyone has a digital camera and access to some pretty neat editing tools at little, or no cost...

Brief Rest


I'm wondering if 'BLACK & WHITE' might just be my thing? Or a BIG part of it at least...

80/365 ~ Hippy Chick!


I KNOW I am in love with the 'soul' ~ the 'grit' of life that it brings out.

Artist @ work


I know that my BWs are often my FAVOURITES in my collection.

BW's have that ESSENCE that colour simply doesn't have ~ the DRAW that makes you look at them over and over again.

Crime Scene!


Can I make pennies ONLY shooting BW? Or will people always want to see the colour?

How do I find MY style ~ that special something that makes people know a shot is one of mine BEFORE they look at the watermark?

DSC_1869


How can I stand OUT from the crowd?

This has ALWAYS been my CHALLENGE & my GOAL ~ not just in photography, but photography is a magnifying glass!

Lessons in Life


So, any ADVICE anyone?
WHERE do I go from here?


To join in with B&W Wednesday head on over to Lisa's blog ~ see you there!

Well you definitely have a way with your black and whites - who knew that you hadn't found your swagger. Although I'm still looking for mine.
