So for 2014 I decided to really try and get this bloggedy Blog thing going.. Just to try and throw up some quick insight and information on what's going on with the old photography efforts and life in the Illinois Valley in general..
So, last year I revamped the site and changed the name to James Vincent Photography. This was done in essence to try and portray a more professional appearance. I also started to do some portraiture work, and will continue the effort to grow this side of the business through 2014. Maybe I should start advertising more….
As for 2014, some great plans for this year. Several Photo ideas that I am working on or planning for this year, one of which I already completed.
Last weekend I took a little trip out of the valley to Owen County Indiana near Spencer. There was a bridge there that I wanted to shoot.. Now the original plan was to head there in the fall, with the autumn leaves. Unfortunately the time needed for the trip just wasn’t there last year. Perhaps I might be able to make it down there this year, but we will see. With the autumn shoot a bust, I then made plans to shoot the bridge in winter. Had been watching the weather, and again the first time that conditions were right.. time just did not allow for the trip. A couple of weeks later and viola - conditions were right and time was available. So this last Sunday, out I went… The conditions in the area were perfect for what I wanted, the snow had just ended a few hours earlier, so it was still fresh and untouched, except for a few animal tracks.. Wandered around a touch to find the right spot from which to shoot and came away with this image…

Although I got the image I was seeking, the day was not without its downfalls. Unfortunately on the drive back the winds picked up making the roads bad, and some vehicle damage ensued. Oh well, at least no one was hurt and the damage is cosmetic so the vehicle is drive able. Well that is all for now, we'll see what I decide to talk about next.. Gonna try and post something each week. Till then hope to see you out in the field...
