Waiting...

Image
Waiting is the hardest part. Waiting for the damn phone to ring with a phone number I don't recognize, hoping to hear a voice I don't know offering me an interview. Better yet, here's hoping they call and just flat out offer me a job! No run around, three interviews process, just give me a job. I hate this! I hate having half a dozen applications in at places that are openly hiring, waiting for the phone to ring. I hate even more that when I see ads for job fairs, I go a check things out online to find that sure- I could go there. But what's the use? I haven't a single job skill that they require? I just save the printer ink and paper by not printing my resume and staying home, saving gas. No sense going if I haven't anything they are looking for. Ugh... This sucks!!!

So, in efforts to get myself out there, maybe even make some money to help pay household bills, I published a professional website. Not a self proclaimed Facebook website- but a genuine website wi…

Adventures in Interviewland

I have been going through a process- the one in which ones goes thru to gain employment.

Am I bitter? Yes. Am I pissed? Yes. Do I hate when my time and fuel is wasted on a wile goose chase? Hells Yes!!

I will break it down for ya'll... One hour long application online. One 45 minute long computer based skills test, done after a 20 minute drive on shitty roads with a follow up introductory 15 minute interview, twenty minute drive home on still shitty roads. 2nd interview- half an hour, thirty minute drive time total. 3rd interview- 20 minute drive on SUPER SHITTY ROADS, 15 minute interview. Handshakes, smile "can't wait to work with you", 20 minute drive back home on SUPER SHITTY ROADS. Phone call this morning- "We went with someone that just had a tad more experience than you. But I'd hire you if there was another open position. We'll hang onto your application." Oh- you just effing do that, jerks!

Days wasted. Fuel wasted at $4.00 a gallon equals …

Shootfest Galore!!!

Image
Sunday before last I had the honor of photographing Miss Lauren. While we had only two ideas, it ended up being a wonderful six hour plus shootfest where she would toss out an idea and we would shoot it. I would toss out an idea, she liked it, we shot it.



One wild idea I had was one I have been seeing done by numerous other photographers and I wanted to try it badly. Hubby fashioned an awesome lighting set up in our tiny bathroom and away we went!! It is amazing what a little heavy whipping cream and fresh cut flowers will do in a bathtub! Add a beautiful model and well... The following pictures speak to how awesome it turned out:)




One idea she came to shoot was in the snow. She'd never done a snow shoot, and I having done one with another lovely model wanted to do more. The stark contrast of the snow against her pale skin with the bright pop of red was just mindblowing!! I would post more if I hadn't made the rule of little to select nekkid pictures here on the my blog.
