One exits and one enters.

Just remarking on the balance in the universe. I wrote a blog about losing a job yesterday. The job was booked to have occurred on or around August 25th. I opened my e-mail this morning and another client was inquiring about booking the 25th. Same depth to the job. Same basic budget but with different usages. Also still life. It's already scheduled.  One in, one out. Balance.

On a totally different tangent: The image above is one of my favorites from my recent "Tommy" shoot at Zach Theatre (the play is still running and still a visual delight).  I caught it with a GH4 and the 35-100mm f2.8 lens at the long end, wide open.

I might have used a higher res camera but if you look very little in the image is tack sharp due to subject movement. But it's the subject movement---the kinetic feel---that allows me to enjoy the image. More or less resolution would have made no real difference. In fact, had I upped the ISO and made a completely sharp image I'm sure we would all find it a bit boring.... Just conjecture.

Much enjoyed the business posts - and the drinks photos.

For me professional photography is mostly a spectator sport - I'm about 99% retired - but it's fun to keep up a little. It's also good to see someone posting realistic accounts of the business, things that might be helpful to those trying to start their careers.

Keep up the good work.

There is nothing like grain and movement to create atmosphere in an image of a performance.

Too clean images, cleans out the atmosphere.
