Learning the trade (texas wedding photographer)

January 09, 2012
We have been ordering new example albums!  We decided I needed to learn how to build albums as well as Tim, and we have been considering a change in vendors, so some new examples were a perfect way to kill 2 birds with one stone.  However, those proverbial birds would not go quietly.

In the past week I have built the same album somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 or 6 times and have used 4 different programs to do so.  Now I think I know why Tim wants me to learn so bad, and why the album design services are so expensive.  Albums are some serious hard work!  I think the finished product will be extremely rewarding but... we don't have it yet. :( The new books should be here at the end of the week and I can not wait. It's driving me nuts! Maybe I can show them off next Monday.

In the mean time a funny story (well, funny to my family). I also decorate cakes occasionally, it is my family's trade. My mom taught me everything I know but she and I see things differently.  I used to drive her crazy with what we affectionately called "vine-y thing-y's." In my opinion any cake with flowers needed vines! Sort of like this:


Needless to say that was not my mothers opinion (nor is it mine anymore). I felt she was squashing my creativity. Mom felt I was ruining her business. You know it was the standard mother-daughter teaching-of-the-trade argument.  Back then it was not so funny, now it is a standard family joke.  So what does this have to do with photography?  As Tim was critiquing my designs I was arguing my creativity and he responded with "There's just too many 'vine-y thing-y's, OK!"

I guess it's just me! ;)
