Jump! Picture A Day Restart - Oct 17, 2010

I've been doing so good lately with my blog posting, trying to do at least one photo-related post a day....I figured that I would take this opportunity to try and get back on track with my Picture A Day project I started months ago that I kept up for about a week (not surprising at all)....

With that said, below is another photo of my little one, taken back in March 2010....I was working on my action photography....not so great then, but as of about 2 weeks ago I actually finally mastered it I think....OK, "mastered" is really not the right word to use, but I think I got the hang of it now.

Since I've started doing my photography full-time (left my day-job a little over a month ago), I've had so much more time to actually learn things!!  I finally figured out how to REALLY use my flash the other day...still much more to learn, but I got the jist of it outside of the Auto mode.  I'm learning a lot more about post-processing my images, I finally updated my website portfolio which I haven't done in about a year!  (See here: Avery James Photography Portfolio), I've had a little more time to put some thought into my marketing and design materials (although I haven't actually done anything yet), and most importantly - I've had much more time to spend with my son....which was ALWAYS the end goal in this whole career choice from Day 1.  I've got a long ways to go in my journey, but I can say with confidence that I'm on the right path.  :)

Happy Thursday everyone :)
