Rare sighting! it's me, in front of a camera. story time ⬇️ two years ago, i met a man on the internet...to buy some photography gear. it wasn't weird. this guy turned out to be really nice, and had a lot of knowledge to share. he invited me to a photography workshop, where i stood in during lighting set-up.
fast forward to today, i decided to randomly check my profile on meetup.com, and discovered loads of unread messages. one was from another photographer who had been at the same workshop who said he had snapped a photo during set-up, and to get in touch if i wanted it.
did i think it was a little weird to respond after two years? a little. but this is the power of the internet, friends. and also good photo organization. @leichtroom
still had the photo, and it didn't take him long to find it and send it over.
i wasn't sure what i would see. usually i feel so awkward and feel like i look awkward too, but when i saw this photo, those fears disappeared. i liked what i saw.
okay, so i'm no model, but i think i look kind of relaxed, and not super awkward. i wanted to share it, because i want to hide less and embrace the wide open world more.
thanks again, kevin (@leichtroom
