So it just so happens that I have an independent streak about a mile wide followed by a waterfall of stubbornness paired with touch of feminism and pride. Lets just say it's a bad combination. Before you think I'm a disaster to be around realize that I also have a some self control and most people don't even know those sides exist unless you spend a lot of time with me. Dancing however is where complete strangers get to see those sides in full force and where I get to learn to conquer them also in full force.
Dancing requires two people to move in sync to the music which means one person has to kinda lead. I'll give you a hint it's not the girl. Not that I am headstrong beast cause I do follow however when I give up completely control and really let the guy lead it takes it from a piano solo to a symphony. It makes me feel like I am some regal beauty in one of those flowing dresses with the feather trim gliding over the floor like it wasn't even there. Of course then the music stops and I come crashing down to earth and the floating is over. But for those few second I have wings.
The moral of the story is find someone you trust, give them control and let the magic happen. You maybe wondering how this applies to photography. For me as a photographer it's about trusting myself. Sometimes you feel like you are just trying things and hoping they work yes you've got experience, class and a fine trained artistic mind but you are still just winging it sometimes. And when I relax and trust myself they often come out the best.
How it applies to you is trust your photographer. I'll use this example because it's of my dear sweet mother who I love dearly but when I shoot with her she is full of ideas. Try it over here do it from this angle etc. And sometimes they are great. Other times the lighting is going to be awful there's going to be things that will be hard to fix in photoshop. And sometimes she hates the poses and locations that I'm choosing until she see what I've done in camera. Instead of a parking lot I could be angled upwards and getting the mountains. So trust us let go and maybe together we can glide around the dance floor and make you feel like a regal beauty.
And lastly I usually don't bring up religion but I kinda have to in this blog post because that is why I noticed the whole dancing thing to begin with. I can sometimes question that God has my life workout and focus so much on the little steps that I forget to sit back and let him lead. And my life goes so much better if I relax and trust him. But right now I am super blessed with some friends that well I'm not exactly sure how we meet completely it kinda just happened and they are such a blessing to me and exactly what I need and not what I was looking for but I have learned so much from them. But that's kinda been how most of my life has been so Thank you to a great God who helps us dance through life one step at a time.
