Trying New Things… A New Featured Article from THE DAILY DRIVER PROJECT

*New Thursday Featured Article from Wes Nielsen of THE DAILY DRIVER PROJECT

The other day, Fireball got a hold of me and asked if I would like to write for this blog. Of course I said yes.

You have to say yes to opportunities, you never know where they are going to lead you.

Now if you have been following Fireball for a while, you know I do a lot of car related stuff with him and I’m stoked to be sharing my thoughts and automotive adventures with you.

In the last few weeks I have been trying new things, venturing outside my comfort zone. What’s my comfort zone you ask? Well that’s shooting cars at car shows and cruisin’ down the highway.

The first thing I tried was moving from behind the camera to in front of it. Yes I’m officially a Vlogger as of last week. With some encouragement from Fireball and some other friends I decided to try it out.

Now I have been on camera before in Fireball’s vlogs (Checkout any of the Wheels & Waves episodes) but it is different when it’s just you. I recorded my first vlog… and well it sucked and I deleted it. Sometimes you just need to start over so I slept on it and tried the next day and it was much better and a little easier.

Add on top of it I kind of enjoy it. I’m not sure where it is going to go, but I’m now headed down that path.

Another thing that I have said yes to is shooting people, specifically Pinups. This is way outside what I normally do, but again you have to try new things to see if it is something you will enjoy.

I’m lucky to have friends that are models and I headed out to one of their shows to grab some pics of them at their show. A really fun time and something I think I will be adding to what I do.

Remember, even if it makes you uncomfortable, try it. You may find out you are really good at it and enjoy whatever you have decided to try.

Here is a link to some of my pinup shoots recently.
