“Again” because my first attempt at blogging failed miserably. Perhaps I was too ambitious with it… working mother of two, training for a marathon, learning to play guitar, and successfully blogging about all of it. I am not saying it’s impossible; I am sure there are millions of successful blogging women out there who tackle it all. I, obviously, am not one of them.
Until now. Hopefully. Maybe.
I guess we will find out. I think the main issue was I lacked focus…too many things going on at once. This blog shall be kept simple and dedicated to one thing…photography. OK, with a few “motherly” things thrown in here and there.
Urban Moda is the brain child of my husband and myself. It started out as me, Shannon, needing some head shots for a theater resume & kindly asking my husband, Tony (the man behind the lens), to help me out. He has been saying for a few years, off and on, that he would like to take up photography. Typically, I am very supportive of my husband and I know he’s a very talented and creative individual; however, I felt like everyone around me was coming to the same conclusion…that they wanted to become a photographer. He agreed to take some head shots and, after seeing them, I was actually impressed & we started receiving really positive feedback from friends, family, acquaintances.
I’m not sure why I doubted his abilities…I’ve seen his handiwork with a video camera. Still shots should be a cake walk for him! It hasn’t been. He knows his camera, he knows his lenses, he knows lighting, composition, Photoshop, posing, etc. The difficult part is that he is a perfectionist. I guess that’s not necessarily a bad thing, mind you, because it’s driving him to become better and better with every click.
