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 it...no 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!
When you're shooting outside (especially shooting people) in the sun can be a pain! When there is no clouds you DO NOT want to shoot with your subject looking into the sun. That not only creates a washed out flat look but chances are your subject will not be able to fully open their eyes. But you DO NOT want to shoot with the subjects back to the sun. Then the camera is shooting into the sun and that will give you a lens glare plus it can make it hard on auto focusing. Now sometimes you want that look but we're not talking about that effect. The key to a balanced picture is placing the sun over the shoulder of your subject (and if you have a lens hood that will help keep the sun off your lens). Shooting over the shoulder will keep you both out of direct view of the sun.
