The funny thing was, I felt much more relaxed during this 30 mins of shooting than I have the past two days doing it in my own studio. Was it the light breeze, the sounds of the river flowing and the birds chirping, seeing geese fly overhead, or watching a deer eat off of an apple tree? Hmmm, I think I just answered my question right there…but seriously, even though there were people walking along the pathway right by where my sideshow was going on, I didn't really mind. I didn't even need to listen to music to help relax me; the sounds of the park were enough.
The feeling of relaxation definitely comes thru in today's photographs as well. I took less photographs total than the two previous sessions, probably due to the distractions of serenity that were all around me, and my only thought that I wrote down in my notebook was "the sounds of the park." Today I wore makeup, did not style my hair, was wearing jewelry and was able to wear my sunglasses due to being outdoors. My mood was calm and relaxed. Day 3.
