I was approached by a photographer named Ana Medina. Canon 5d that really caught my interest with a big plastic thing on the top flash (Gary Fong Lightsphere).
"What is that?" I asked.
"Its a flash diffuser" Ana replied.
"Who do you shoot for?"
I then whipped out my phone and showed her my photos of flowers, bugs and lizards. I was thrilled, she liked my work!
She said "Come shoot with me next week."
"What?! No, no, I don't shoot people, I'm way too shy for that." I hesitantly replied.
"Just bring your camera next week, I'll show you how."
So I did. She tricked me, well... maybe not... but I didn't JUST bring my camera, I ended up shooting, and I liked it and made new friends.
