Well, I do consider myself a photographer, in the artistic sense of the word. Now a professional photographer, I am most definitely not. I don't think I'm good (or patient) enough to photograph headshots, weddings, and other things/events that professional photographers are hired for. But I will take photos of you if you're a relative or friend, and you ask nicely.
Tomorrow evening I'm accepting the challenge of "Maternity Photography" and it should be fun. I'm quite confident in my skills, and sister-in-law (due any day now!) will be very pleasant to photograph. This evening Maz and I practiced shooting on Aperture Priority mode in the backyard during the pretty, early evening light.
Tomorrow should go well, that is, if the sister-in-law doesn't go into labor overnight!
