That was the assignment, right Ron… or was it to make me the photographer weep in frustration? As life presented for me, I was tasked by my first client to compose a shot with one of my trinity rocks, an image to help her build a personal brand around… a brand offering angelic messages. My client is an author and pens much about children, their life lessons that can help us all, and asked if my daughter’s hand could do the offering. Thus became my very own ‘trinity’… on auto, a rock in hand, and my own 5-year old learning/teaching life lessons on what it means to be ‘helpful’ and how to ‘relax’.
The photos that trinity produced are a great start and I look forward to sharing them with my client… yet it was the interactions between my daughter and I that were the true gift. After several attempts at holding the rock, trying to genuinely portray the feeling of ‘giving’ with just her hands, she finally GOT IT… got that the ‘harder she tried, the harder it was’, to ‘NOT think about it, just relax’, and that being helpful isn’t about doing it ‘her way’.
“Be relaxed. Don’t try hard, because it is through relaxation that you can become aware, not by trying hard. Be calm, quiet, silent.”
