Happy New Year

January 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

     As a photographer I am constantly studying and learning in an attempt to better communicate the story/feelings of a session through images taken. In the past 3 years of business, improvement has been guided by online workshops, yearly subscriptions to online educational material, textbooks even, and following favorite photographers. Practice and then more practice is probably the most important aspect to gaining confidence and skill in what I've learned in order successfully capture images for clients. Thankfully I have quite a few beautiful subjects in my household to practice on and I practice often (just ask them lol). This year, I invite you follow along in my journey. The goal is to shoot every week, or at least every other week for an educational purpose. Each personal "lesson", guided by a book on weekly improvement sessions, I will post a few images explaining how I captured the images, the goal, technical aspects, etc. Feel free to follow along. I will post a link to my blog on my facebook page so if you don't follow specifically here, you can like my facebook page in order to see the updates. Thanks to those who have allowed me to capture your images. I hope to improve every session and I thank you for being part of the journey. I absolutely love what I do.

     This first series doesn't really have an educational goal in mind other than referencing as a starting point and explanation of format. I will typically shoot and experiment with just one lens at a time. Under each image I will list the setting of the camera. These images were shot using a Canon 7d, Tamron 28-75 2.8 lens at about 10 am on a cloudy/rainy day. The lighting for cloudy/rainy days is termed flat light and there is not a lot of contrast or harsh shadows. The Tamron, or at least this copy of lens, is a slightly softer lens then my Canon L lenses.
