One of my goals for 2020 is to be a better blog poster! Let’s see if I can keep it up. Lol! This sweet little one was my first session for 2020. She was so cute and the session couldn’t have been more perfect. For this time of year inside sessions are best. If you have little ones and a room with lots of light, don’t forget that I have a portable studio that can be set up in your home. Great option for this time of year when the weather is less than pleasant!
Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine. It would be really great if it decided to stick around for awhile. I’m not ready for the rain! Just finished editing this fun session. There’s almost nothing cuter than a boy and his dog. These sure make me smile! 🙂

Are you undecided? This review and photo below from Katie Tidwell who attended the workshop and who now has her own photography business might be helpful for you! Katie is taking some fantastic pictures!!!
Thank you so much for letting me be apart of your class! Just walking into it I felt comfortable! You have the cutest set up and handouts that I still turn back too. Note pads for note taking, lunch, you thought of it all! You did a great job of breaking down how to use my camera for Nikon and Canon users, then provided us with super cute models we could practice on. All in all the day was really fun and I took a lot of knowledge and excitement to take photos away from your class! Looking forward to taking another, maybe an advanced one In the future! ~Katie
Hey guys! I LOVE a good Black and White photo! Love, love, love them! They just draw me in! I have a super easy, super quick photoshop edit for you to help you get those great Black and Whites. And when I say easy, I mean EASY! Check out the video below to see just what I mean!
Hello friends!! I am excited to get back to our Workshop Wednesdays! So far we have gone over ISO, SHUTTER SPEED and F-STOP.
Now it’s time to put all these elements together! Doing this properly is what will give you that PERFECT PICTURE. When I get to a photo shoot this is what I do.
I analyze the setting. What does my light look like?
What is my subject? Lots of people? 1 person? Old or young? This will determine my f-stop and depth of field.
Once I have chosen my f-stop then I use my in camera meter to help me get the right shutter speed for that situation. I also will take a few test shots, look at my screen to see what I need to adjust. Am I too bright? Is my photo to dark? For me I always like to shoot wide open, meaning I am choosing an F-stop with a low number. This allows me to get the most light in as possible. Of course you don’t have to do this! That’s the beauty of any art form! Do whatever you like best! 🙂
The ISO and Shutter Speeds balance each other out. This is what you need to remember!! If I have a LOW ISO then I need to have a HIGH SHUTTER SPEED number. If I have a HIGH ISO then I will need a LOW SHUTTER SPEED number. They need to be opposite to get that PERFECT PICTURE!
Okay so let’s put this to the test! Are you photographing in a bright space with lots of light? If so go for the low ISO and high SHUTTER SPEED. Is the spot you’re photographing a low light situation? If that is the case then go for a high ISO and a low SHUTTER SPEED. Easy as that! 😉 Good luck! Any questions leave them in the comment section!
If any of you know The Madill family you know HOW SPECIAL these photos are!! They have prayed for this little miracle! I am so honored to be able to photograph this moment for them. Love them big time!!!
