I began the week by making a film "to-do list" to keep me focused and on track. But, by Tuesday evening, I realized I was quickly losing pace and hadn't picked the camera in two days. I was feeling a bit defeated, but then I noticed the gorgeous late summer evening light falling softly into my office. I knew right away - this was something I had to shoot. I took Adeline to the guest bed for a few goodnight stories and snuck one frame of her. For comparison, I took one digital shot. She quickly grew tired and restless and after putting her to bed, Audrey came wandering in and posed for two more frames!
Once the scans come back, I'll be able to compare the images to the digital files and see how differently the cameras perform with natural window light. It wasn't major progress, but it sure felt great to be shooting again.
How about you? How do you manage to stay on track, amidst the sea of daily distractions?
