Trying new things, in the middle of real life

This week I started talking about my new workshop An Unconventional Photography Workshop: for seekers of new ways to see, and part of kicking that off was to make a video about what the workshop will touch on.

Now, making a video of myself talking to the dot on my screen is awkward at the best of times, but this particular week I also got one of those stuffy noses that makes your voice sound all nasely, plus recording a video in the quiet of my home can be challenging, because, well, I have kids here most of the time.

I found an hour where the kids wouldn’t be here, put on a dab of mascara and just went for it. But wait, my recording app wasn’t working, so that took about 45 minutes. 15 minutes to go I had plenty of time to record a ten-minute continuous video. But wait, my dad FaceTimed me in the middle of it, so no dice.

Off to get the kids, surely I could record ten minutes while they had quiet time later in the day? Send them off to their room with lots of books and try again. Five minutes in, the fire alarm goes off, which would normally be a small bump in the road, but because I have a 4-year-old who is terrified of fire alarms, there was no more quiet time to be had.

In the end, I got it done. In the afternoon, three kids present but they agreed to read books for twenty minutes in their room in exchange for one episode of Paw Patrol.

Please check it out here, I have a new workshop coming that I am over the moon about. It will be for photographers needing to change things up a bit in their photographic life. Kind of like couples counselling but the camera is your partner.
