Mr. B, 13yrs old, and Ms. E, 6yrs old, came to visit me today. We had fun....I know I say that after every shoot but I truly mean it. I love meeting wonderful people and I love taking pictures of them. We laughed...look at this pic. Mr. B made his West Coast signage and Ms. E was laughing so hard I could see her tonsils. I'm about 5months into my photo biz journey and I have to say I LOVE what I do! I know that I am still learning so much when it comes to my camera, lighting, posing, and just how to take good images but man if I could continue to grow and do a great job for my clients, I would be tickled pink!
I use a NIkon D40 camera that I bought used off of a Hampton Roads Photography page. I still have not had a ton of money to upgrade or get fancy lenses. I did invest in a 50mm 1.8AF after Christmas and I LOVE it. There is only one major problem....it does not autofocus with my OLD camera. So about half of my pictures are BLlluuurrrrYyyyyyyyyy. I'm selling it and going to get a model that actually autofocuses with my camera . I am considering a 35mm instead so I don't have to get as far away from my subjects. I love the 1.8 aperture...those of you who are learning, this low F stop causes blur in the background, which I just learned is called bokeh. Oh I have so much to learn!
Ok so back to having fun! I love capturing the essence of a person's personality in a picture. I also truly believe that eyes are the window to a person's soul. <3 capturing a strong view of the eyes in my photos. It is so important to connect with your peeps and enjoy your time with them! Pictures that I will post below are me encouraging them to give me all kinds of faces...serious, I just got the best present ever face, I am about to go down a huge roller coaster face....these are the two I have edited so far. So stay tuned for more FUN FACES....
Shoot for 5 Mama
My name is Angie and I am a mama to 5 wonderful children. I "shoot" for five to make extra money for me to stay home with them. I've taken photography classes in college and am self taught on the digital photography. I love capturing people and beautiful images. I look forward to sharing my photo journey with you.
