Sometimes going back to basics is the best thing for a photographer to do I think. I always want to push myself and explore new pieces of the photography puzzle, but it is nice to remember what I have always loved about photography and why I loved it. I started looking through my flickr, like way back in the distance - page 20 even. And I picked out 3 photos that struck me, 3 that I missed. They all included window light on skin, hair moving, and a sense of tension. My hair has gotten much longer than when I took those pictures and was quite a challenge to keep inside the frame. I remembered instantly the no remote days, as I was using my 10 sec timer, and as a result also remembered the "fling-your-head-til-you-want-to-throw-up" feeling that comes from hair flipping and then dashing, and repeating. So all in all, shooting this yesterday felt amazing and I hope you enjoy - a little piece of where I came from.
