Picture taken at The Vatican, Oct 2009
The title of this post is a line from Brandi Carlile’s new CD. Have you heard it yet? Its effing amazing.
But it is also so true for me. I have had dozens of career choices in my life. When I was a child I wanted to be a choreographer, dancer, singer, songwriter, director, producer, etc….
But would you believe I never changed my major once in college? I changed my career goal plenty of times, but I entered school as a biology major and graduated with a biology degree. I’m pretty damn proud of myself for that one. But am I working in the biology field??? NOOOOOOOO! Of course not. I just wouldn’t be Evan Davis if I stuck to one thing for the rest of my life. I’ve come to accept that I will probably never have just one single, lifelong career.
So what am I doing now? I decorate cakes at a fantastic local bakery. Its so yums. But the wheels in my mind are turning again, and I see a whole other future laid out before me: photography. I know. I know. How crazy can one person be? Ummm….hi. I can be all kinds of crazy. For reals.
So I decided to try my hand at photography this past Sunday and see how I do. Thankfully, two fabulous women allowed me to use them and exploit their pictures just for practice. Wanna see??? I bet you wanna see.
First, we have Noelle. Her pictures were very organic and natural. Even her outfit fit in with the wilderness.
Then we have Emily, a.k.a. Old Lady Hayes. Emily is freakin’ hardcore, and I wanted to capture her in an urban setting. Yes, she’s chain-smoking in these pictures. Told you she was hardcore.
So what do you think? Am I any good at this picture taking thing?
