Thank you to everyone who entered into the mentorship giveaway.  I received some fantastic essays.  It was a tough decision, but I have chosen the five finalists: Jen Mefford, Sage Dubois, Amy Smith, Julie Whaley, and Rachelle Black.  I will be contacting each of you to set up a phone interview that will take place between March 8-22.  I will have a list of questions I will ask each of you and will choose the winner based on your essay, your portfolio, and your interview.  I am so excited to work with one of you wonderful ladies to Amp up your business and take it to the next level.  For those that entered that were not chosen, thank you for taking the time to enter.  If you’re interested in a paid one-on-one mentorship with me, I’m offering all those that entered a special discount, just contact me for details.  I’d love to meet and help each and every one of you!

It is so rewarding work with new clients and to get to know them, and it’s even more rewarding when those clients are exceptionally kind, talented, and amazing to work with. I was honored to photograph this little one, and not only did we get to create some gorgeous heirloom images, but we incorporated little pieces of the talents of baby Ethan’s Mommy and Daddy, too. Mommy is an artist, and brought in two huge and incredible oil paintings to use as backgrounds for some of the images (the trees and the blue/green/yellow swirls were both hers). Daddy plays guitar, so we paired guitar with painting, added Baby E, and tadahhhh! Thank you, Nick and Stacy, I am thrilled with your portraits and so look forward to working with you again. Enjoy some favorites from your session.

Thought I’d start sharing some photography educational tips for all you beginners out there.  Let’s start with the basics!

Exposure is how much light reaches your camera’s sensor (or film if you are old school!).  An image that is overexposed means too much light reached the sensor, and if an image is underexposed there was too little light.  You can control the amount of light by using the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, which are the three factors that affect exposure, or the Exposure Triangle.

Here’s a graphic to show you the basics of each of these three factors.  I’ll expand on each, one at a time, in future posts.  Any questions so far?
