These posts are from Linnea Lenkus
Well, there’s a first for everything. This is my very first blog.
I have been hesitant to join this trend, to be honest. My thought has been that “Who would be interested in what a photographer has to say?” Just tell this photographer to shut up and shoot, really.
As anyone who has met me will tell you, I cannot be concise. I jabber on and on. It’s a family trait, and yet I am considered the quiet one in my family. My thoughts overtake me. Some people call it cerebral. Some call it verbal vomiting. My friends call it “Oh Linnea!” My husband’s friend calls me Frank. All I know is that I have a rapid fire brain that goes off on its own tangents.
These traits of mine have finally been effective. For years they were just annoying. Okay, they can still be. But now they work for me as a photographer. I can talk about one thing and think of another at the same time, which enables me to think about my equipment and talk with my portrait subjects simultaneously. It also enables me to photograph children and talk to parents without missing a beat.
But these traits make me jump from one subject to another too rapidly. I usually leave most of my employees, friends and family in the dust, confused and not sure what just happened. Did I roll over them? Did I say something? What? I didn’t catch that.
So, please read this blog with the warning that I am whipping through this. My life is fast, my brain faster and my typing fingers can’t keep up with my thoughts.
I hope to give you many of the snippets of how my very odd brain thinks. It’s the odd brain that sees things through a small viewfinder and relishes the things that I see. I have a plan for this blog to share information and vision. I may get sidetracked. That happens with me.
Please note that I can be very critical. I don’t mean to offend, but eventually I can’t help but blurt my thoughts out. It can sound harsh, but it’s just Frank. You can call me that.
