Portraits : Life Connections

It is amazing to think that life is all about connecting with people. Often times they lead to friendships. Friends are life lines. Friends are cheerleaders! And they are also bearers of truth even when you don't want to hear it. They are, in my opinion, a necessity in life.

My friend Mikey is the very first person that I did an "official" photo shoot for. He is a model and wanted some new photos for his portfolio. This was last summer, when I was shooting in shutter priority because I didn't quite understand manual and I am sure glad I finally got the hang of it!

Anyway, my point is that if it wasn't for my good friend being patient with me while I constantly changed settings and took like a million hours to take one picture, I wouldn't have come home with these photos. Thank goodness he's a good model. :o)





So thanks to life's great connections that lead to wonderful friendships.
