Women in Construction Week | Construction & Industrial Media: Photography, Video & Time Lapse – Time Lapse Photography Article

Women in Construction Week | Construction & Industrial Media: Photography, Video & Time Lapse After all my years in business, it’s still thrilling to get an email inquiring about availability. And when that email request involves environmental portraiture on a construction site, I’m as happy as one can get. Well, maybe a perfect 300 score in bowling is better but not by much. (my best is 284) Sunlight Direct and sunny or diffused and soft, this ambient light is the…

Manifesting our dreams takes a lot of thought and work and vision.   I distinctly remember the first time I connected the dots, when manifesting my vision really happened to me.  My dream was to rent a little cottage on Moody Beach, Maine for a week with a girlfriend and our total of four daughters.  I verbalized this dream to a counselor I was seeing.  It didn’t end up happening exactly as…

Solo Women Van Dweller – Do you feel safe? – iPhone Photography Article
