Photography has always been in the back of my mind. Something that has always interested me. I love being in front of the camera and behind the camera. I have modeled before so that i actually know how to do some what. Modeling is not too difficult to learn. It’s all about fCial expressions and knowing what facial expressions and such suit you the best! Then the rest of it is about moving and posing! Pretty easy to me. I went to modeling and acting school when I was younger so maybe that’s why. As for behindthe camera now that takes time and a good eye!
I got a camera, a beginner camera Canon SX40 HS, about a year ago but I never really picked it up. The reasoning was because I didn’t know how to use it. Yes I knew how to turn it on, point, and shoot. There were different settings and etc on it that pretty much scared me because I didn’t know what they were or how to use them. Yes I know I could have just Googled it and gone from there but it’s easier for someone to tell me and show me in these cases. I let that keep me from just jumping on in!
So recently my brother who is a photographer came down to visit for the first time and I had him give me a brief run down. I was super excited when I actually knew more on how to use the camera! We went out to the beach and he was my model for the afternoon!! I also got some super cute photos of one of my monsters playing in the waves. I can not even begin to describe how it felt to have taken pictures and some of them actually turned out decent!
After my brother left there were just a few more questions I had in regards to the camera. A good friend of mine is a photographer and I never thought of asking until now! Yep…. I felt like smacking myself over that. Well at least the questions were answered and I think I got a pretty darn good grasp of how to use the camera I have! Now it’s all about practice. Practice makes perfect!
I am working on the editing side of photography as well. So I’m trying to figure out what my editing groove is. What makes the photos look the best. I have the photoshop and Lightroom apps on my iPad that I am using to edit all of my photos. I’m still trying to get the hang of that as well.
Any photographers in the house that have advice or tips for beginners? Send them my way! Anything that has to deal with taking them or editing them or if there is any online classes that are helpful!
Now as for modeling I am aiming to maybe get photos taken soon! We will see!
Alright babes this mom is off to her last scout meeting of this school year! 2 months break! Yay!
P.S. how did my photography hand lettering turn out? And yes I need to change my logo.
