Fake Geese reinvent my love of photography!

Really it all started from a boring day at work.  One of the merchandisers gave me some new products to shoot -a bunch of fake geese and birds.  And as a joke to my fellow employees, I took the birds, set them up in the studio, created a card scene with me in it and took the shot.  The response was tremendous.  And now, something that started as a joke, has now become inspiration to a series on fake geese interacting in real  life situations. 

Now, I will stop here and add that I'm not going to hope that this series will spark a media revelation and I'll be thrown forward in the photography world as a new Crewdson but it's a nice thought.  And I am having fun with it.  Sometimes thinking of new images in my head makes me want to go to work, create new images and start a new view point from my eye to the camera as an image.  That's probably why I love photography.  :-)

Almost the end of 2009...and only three posts??!

It seemed a bit fitting to write down some sentiments before the end of the year 2009.  And for me, 2009 was quite a journey.  Getting rejection letters, graduating from college, figuring out a photo job, not freaking out about money, finding said job and of course, graduate school soul searching yet was a full year.  I rarely have any regrets and summing up this year of failures and successes, I would have to say the same.  No regrets.  I really do believe that every action has a deeper meaning and a significant part in our lives regardless of how we feel about them at that time.  "If it weren't for this...then that" and so on and so forth.

So bring on 2010 because I truly believe that it can only get better with deeper wisdom and understanding that 2009 graced me with.
