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!
I hear it all the time that "Why do have a flash if it's bright outside?" Especially with really bright days it's very helpful to use your flash and here is why. If you have someone outside you want to photograph and you put them in the direct bright sunlight they will squint and never look "normal". But them in the shade and now you're dealing with a dark subject & bright background. The flash can help you get some light on the person. If you want to cheat, put your camera on "portrait" mode if you have it, it's the icon that is a shape of a person. That tells the camera your needs and then you can get better results from the camera. Treat your camera like you would your child at times...if you don't tell it what you want don't expect to get the best results!
