PHOTOGRAPHY TAKEN BY M’LISS BUSH PHOTOGRAPHY
My Dearest Jody
You are about to board
A really long flight
So put your seat belt on
Clutch the armrest tight
The flight will take you to
A beautiful destination
It’s called Retirement
Life’s longest vacation.
Since I graduated from college in June with my AAS in photography I took a little break and just relaxed…… WELL I’M BACK. Deva Bailey-Logan, a fellow photography gave me the inspiration to shoot these images and I can’t thank her enough for lighting my creative flame again.
Its been some time since I posted in my blog however when there is something special you want to share with people this would be that moment for me.
The military is a very special organization to be a part of and I was so blessed to have privilege in photographying the Retirement Ceremony of Chief O’Connor. His 30 years of dedicated service in the United States Air Force as well as his dedicated service to the men and women of the Air Force has been an amazing journey and we can’t thank him enough for his service. Best wishes Chief on your next journey you will be missed.
It’s been some time since I’ve blogged the month prior to graduation was crazy busy. Between preparing for the Grad Show, Professional Portfolio Review and Graduation I barely knew who I was or were I was going…… so I took some time to regroup and relax and took a well needed short vacation to Seattle.
Graduating with my AAS in Photography is something I am so very proud of and it still feels like I am dreaming at times………. BUT I DID ITQ
I have the true pleasure of introducing you to Jennifer and Carter, it was a true honor to have this opportunity to photography them today. Jennifer and Carter are currently on vacation here in Spokane and I believe it’s been almost 3 years since we’ve seen each other, so I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to put them in front of my camera.
I met Jennifer while we both worked for the military, I’m telling you the military will truly BLESS you with very special people in your life and Jennifer is one of them. She is an amazingly strong women, a dedicated military member and ONE HECK OF A MOTHER to her little guy.
Spring is my favorite time of year I get so excited to photograph all the beautiful flowers that are in bloom. I love the colors, shapes and textures and I have so much fun with editing the images to see what I can create.
My Grad Show is June 8th, I put together a video of my work for the last two years…. it’s been an amazing journey… NEXT IS GRADUATION ON JUNE 15TH.
I hope you enjoy the amazing journey I’ve taken…… sit back and see how much I’ve grown as a photograher…………………. Sorry for the lenght of the video
Gordon (my camera) and myself took a stroll together through the neighborhood and captured wild flowers, I loved the poppies that were growing randomly in a yard that we passed by so I could help but capture their beauty.
As a photographer, I am really trying to explore my editing skills in multiple programs and just letting my artistic skills grow. There are times that one image can take on so many forms that I find I struggle with what image I like the most. I guess that is the hardest thing for an artist to deal with and I beginning to think your first instinct is actually the best…. DON’T OVER THINK YOUR ART
Starting your morning with your creative juices flowing is so relaxing and a great start to your day. The joy of taking a simple photograph of an apple and playing around with it and seeing what you can create I find exciting.
