Photography - a 30 day challenge

Working with photographers on the set of our scripted drama series SPIRAL was such an amazing experience, I decided that it was time that I learned a few skills myself, so I started a 30-day challenge.    

It's been a worthy if difficult process working with all the apertures, f-stops & iso's. The trick that I've discovered through the 30 day challenge is to slow down, be thoughtful and deliberate.  Learning all about photography has been good training and helps drive my storytelling skills as well.  I've always been about the words and less so about the pictures, so it feels good to try other skills and learn from them. After all, we live in so much natural beauty in Vancouver, most of the work is already done, I just need to capture it.
