Gary Sinise and the Lt Dan Band

Gary Sinise and the Lt Dan Band 
Phoenix, AZ September 1, 2012

All of my Gary Sinise and Lt Dan Band Photographs are copyrighted. Do not use without my permission. Contact me via my photography website for any questions pertaining to purchases or publishing rights of these photographs.

I got such a rush every time Gary looked at me. It meant nothing to him but to me it meant everything in the world. It made me feel like I mattered. Sometimes all you have to do is give someone your attention to make them feel special. Thank you Gary. 

A terrible photo. It was so dark and I had not set the right exposure fast enough. But I still love the photo for personal reasons because he was looking right at me when I snapped the shot. How could Gary or the band members see any of the audience at all?

Melody Farmer Photography 2012

As I continue to refine myself as a professional photographer and slowly build my new business I am constantly daunted by the difficult challenges before me. It is true that the photography market is flooded with new photographers thanks to the digital age and how cameras can take amazing photos without a whole lot of technical know-how leaving real, very hard working photographers with extensive knowledge and experience way too much competition. This may seem unfair but I am not discouraged. Despite these difficulties a good camera can't necessarily take a great photo. Only a skilled, well trained photographer can do that. And where the digital age and a really well made camera has made photography much more refined and beautiful creatively it can't replace superb technical skill. That I do not think will ever go away. I am, I'm sorry to say (and know), one of those many "amatuer" photographers trying to go pro. Yet, unlike many amatuers out there I am dedicated to becoming a sincere and very well trained and skilled photographer. Granted this will take many years and require constant study and improvement, I have faith that I will one day achieve my goal. In the meantime, I will have to build my business and my reputation slowly.

This blog, which I am also endlessly improving, will now become solely focused on photography. I would like to make it also as instructional as possible so that it can be of some use to people who want to learn more about photography.

Have an ethereal Valentine's Day!

I was inspired this Valentine's Day to make a photo just for the occasion. It is available for sale it's just not processed or prices yet. The words are written by me and the entire photo was created from scratch with the subject being one of the roses my husband gave to me.

The words say:

"I will love you forever. My beloved. My life. You are part of my soul and all that I desire. Without you I would be lost. Without you I would be incomplete. You are my most precious treasure. A touch of the divine. The most beautiful creature that has ever graced this earth. You are everything to me. And I will love you forever."
I would like to dedicate it to my husband Michael. I love you baby!
