Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and taking a peak.  Now I never claim to know everything, or be perfect, or even being able to spell!  I work really hard to not only be a good photographer, but have a personal connection to my clients and understanding what they want (especially when they might not know).  In addition I love to help others improve their own pictures.  Let's face one can afford a personal photographer to follow them around 24/7 (but if you do know someone give them my name!). 

My blog has a collection of advise, current photo experiences and the personal updates.  My new 2012 series (TT- Tipsy Thursday) is a combo of all kinds of questions I've received, things I've seen & even those mistakes I've made in my years of shooting.  I'm ALWAYS in need to know what other people want to hear about, so please email me with ANY suggestions.  Again thanks for stoping by and hopefully you enjoy!

Tipsy Thursday #4

Chances are you never really thought about how to hold and shoot your camera.  Grab a hold of you camera & look at where your hands & fingers they block parts of the lens, cover any sensors or important areas?  Now pay attention if the camera is being supported by your fingers.  If any of this is so it's time to change that!

If the camera is large enough, grasp the camera firmly in both hands, the right one on the camera body with your first finger poised on the shutter button; and your left hand either under and around the lens, or on the bottom of the camera body.  With point and shoot cameras, the fingers of your left hand will probably go over those of your right.  You want to support your camera and if at all possible lean on a wall/support arms on a table or something else that helps maintain so you are moving as little as possible.

As I have learned on "Top Shot", when shooting a gun you need to relax your breathing and squeeze the trigger to hit the target.  This is the same with shooting a picture...if you're moving at all the picture will be moving!

But if at all possible...use a tripod!  Tests have shown over and over that almost all pictures taken at normal shutter speeds are not as sharp as the same shot with a tripod.
