Fishtown Greens with Jill | Shooting for myself again
Shooting for myself again…
Something I think we all share as individuals is the ability to get caught up with work and forget to take those moments to enjoy something you love, just for a moment. For me; as a set assistant, DigiTech, freelance photographer, and barista as well, I got into a pattern of working hard day after day without taking a moment to do something for myself. Which don’t get me wrong, working hard and it paying off is a reward in its own rite, but you can’t forget about yourself at the same time.
So to cut to the point, I finally shot for myself again. Nothing crazy, just a small set with a friend. I had to be in Philly on that day to get some film developed at my lab of choice anyway so I thought I’d reach out and try and set something up. We had a few hours to kill before the color processing was finished so we ran around town and shot some cool portraits, and it was so great to just be out creating for the sake of creation again. Along with this shoot it made me want to get back on here and write about it, something I want to continue doing with shoots and projects I work on, as well as some opinion based posts. I’m looking forward to getting back into all this again, it feels good to be back.
Below are some of my favorites from the day!
