I am straight up EXHAUSTED from this weekend, but it was good nonetheless. No matter how much I tried, however, I could not form a cohesive blog post over the past couple days, so here are a bunch thoughts that developed this weekend:
-I'm dumping my Nikon lenses and going all in on Sigma Art Lenses. Wow. I shot a wedding on Saturday and the difference between my 85mm Nikon lens and my Sigma Art Lens is astounding. Everything about it is better and sharper. It's crazy that a third party lens company has come out ahead of a company like Nikon at half the price. If you're considering buying a new lens, the Sigma Art is your only option as far as I'm concerned.
-I'm going to be doing more "Photo Runs" Hopefully I'll upload the video soon, but on Sunday I went on a "photo run". I had to take photos for work and decided to run from location to location as opposed to simply driving to where I needed to go. It was a great work out, and a fun experience to be able to pull out my camera on a run which is something I always have the urge to do anyway. I see it as a fun meet-up opportunity to get to know some people as well. More on this later this week.
-SPRING IS HERE AND I'M READY (even though winter wasn't that cold) I keep seeing people who I know have graduated are still going on "Spring Break" and I want to know how this is possible and how can I also have a Spring Break once again.
-A day like yesterday is why The 365 had to end. I sat in the dark editing wedding photos all day yesterday, and the only thing I felt like doing afterwards was eating tacos. If I were doing a daily photo/video project, yesterday would have been one of those "crappy days" because I had zero free time. It's nice to go offline every once in a while, even if it's for a day.
-Speaking of disconnecting, I've been bailing on my Apple Watch the past couple days. Nothing against the watch, but I've been wearing it for over a year and I've been in notification hell without realizing it. It's been really nice to not be constantly prodded by a device on my wrist. This feels like the beginning of one of those "input breaks" where I no longer have energy for binge-watching or spending time on the internet and all I want to do is sit in silence and read a book.
That's about it. I'll post something bigger later this week, but I need to get my thoughts back together again. Everything has been so hectic for the past week and I feel like I need to catch my breath.
