For those of you who may or may not know, I’m Shanna (rhymes with banana), from the ShanCait road trip duo! 🙂
I’ve always been that person who’s attached at the hip with their camera – if I’m not working with a client for my freelance photography business, I’m spending my time shooting and creating conceptual artwork.
I’ve used and owned countless cameras, but within the past year I upgraded camera body, and I swear, it’s like this 6D is my baby. I could practically pull out my ‘billfold’ and a collection of pictures I’ve taken with it would come unfolding out, just like a proud parent.
“Have I shown you this one? It’s from it’s very first shoot, fresh out of the box!”
*oooh, ahhhh* someone might coo.
Hah, as if it were my child’s first steps.
But alas, through the Art + Technology program at UF with Cait, I’ve grown quite fond of video too.
I think after a) getting down and dirty with a Hardee’s Thickburger
b) falling in love with video compositing of Google Street View…twice
and c) finally conquering my nerves of doing a glam video shoot with a model, video won me over.
After all, there’s enough room for two “babies,” one on each hip, right?
Okay, okay, moving on.
So where does this road trip come in for me?
Well, I am a ridiculously avid traveler. Any and all opportunities that come up, especially fun spur of the moment ones, I seize wholeheartedly (of course camera in-tow). And guess who’s become my partner in crime in recent ones? You guessed it! The one and only, Cait, roadwarrior extraordinaire.
Alas, what happens when…
‘ain’t nobody got $$ for a Eurotrip,’ but ‘we definitely want to travel,’ and ‘neither of us have been out to Cali,’ and oh yeah, ‘we really want to check out Austin too,’ and wait, ‘there are really cool natural wonders throughout the west’…
And guess what? Everyone’s asking, what do I want to do on this road trip? Take lots and lots of pictures and shoot lots and lots of video and create exciting and engaging work!
And don’t worry, you all will be the first to see 🙂
In the meantime, curious about the work I’ve already done?
