Unexpected Treasures - Annapolis Sunrise

This morning I lead a group of photographers to the docks in Annapolis to catch the morning sunrise.  Getting up at 2am to be at the Herndon Park & Ride by 3:30.  Leaving promptly at 4am, the drive to Annapolis was peaceful.  We arrived in Annapolis at about 5:10 and had a little bit of time before the first rays of the morning started to show their face at 5:30am.  Since I have done this 2 times previously I really wasn't too interested in taking pictures but more for being a mentor/resource for other photographers.  I did manage to take a few though.

I think the meetup was a success.  Only 2 people were no-shows which is much better than previous meetups where half would be no-shows.  I am really hoping that I can jumpstart the Unexpected Treasures meetup group and get members to be more active.

Happy New Year - 2013

Ok so I am a little over a month off, but my real job, the one that pays for my expensive camera hobby has been keeping me busy.  Plus it's been cold outside and haven't had the motivation to get out and shoot.  It doesn't mean I haven't been thinking of my next projects though...

I have been evaluating the direction I would like to go from a professional level.  I really love working in the studio, so I will always leave that option available.  However I think I am going to focus my attention on trying to become a pet photographer.  So if you want some pictures of your pet, I'm doing free photo shoots while I build my portfolio.  Your cost is only for prints.
