Shimelle offered a free class once called "I Confess," and I really enjoyed making the minialbum in the slide show above. One of my confessions is that "I Want to be a Sports Photographer." You can click on the page when it comes by to pause the slide show and read the journaling. I've been rethinking that confession as I've been thinking more about photography and working to improve my photography skills. I have always thought of myself as an art photographer, and I blogged here about how I use my photography in my art (a new example is above), and I posted one of my favorite art photographs here. And now I do think of myself as a sports photographer. I love taking action shots and sports portraits for the reasons I journaled about in my confession, and I do it often. But recently, things have changed. I've been rethinking family photography. I think I want to change my confession. My new confession is that I want to become a family portrait photographer. You see, although I take thousands of pictures of my family and friends to scrapbook, I have never really thought about applying my photography skills to making really beautiful family photographs. My snow pictures, here and here, have proven to me that I can. I'll still do art photography, and I'll still do sports photography, but I really want to add family photography to my resume as well.
What do you think? What sort of a photographer do you see yourself as? Has this changed over time? Any other confessions you want to share?
