I notice the same thing jenni. By the way, my sister is a Jenni - although now that she's a grown up (40), she goes by Jennifer... But I still get to call her Jenni. I like Jenni.
I am trying to become a different type of shooter; moving on from portraiture and on to more PJ stuff and arty conceptual things. I cannot shoot anything without an emotional attachment, though. Most women are like that, I think.
Nice to meet you Katie (the name of my second daughter should I be blessed with one). I too have been wanting to branch out. I've been shooting portraiture for the last 22 years and I feel it's time to try doing some things that are still feminine but still life. You know the flowers and the fruit type of thing.
If you want to branch out and do something different, can I recommend looking at the work of Marianne Priest? She's an APUG subscriber since the beginning of time (almost), and does some really interesting things. She goes by Mayfair710 here; you should be able to find her gallery contributions pretty quickly by visiting her profile.
I had so much fun testing my film that I tested ALL of it!!! The results are great, now I know what I need to do to each type of film to get proper negatives. I'm shooting Thursday--- a couple of models and I'll try printing next week. wish me luck!
