A COLLABORATIVE EXPERIENCE ::

I AM NO QUEEN OR GOD. I DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING. BUT I DO KNOW ONE THING. I LOVE NATURAL LIGHT. IT’S AT THE CORE OF WHO I AM AS AN ARTIST. IT INSPIRES ME IN ALL WAYS AND IN ALL THAT I DO. I’M ALWAYS ON THE SEARCH FOR THAT LIGHT. NATURAL LIGHT GIVES US FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS AND CAN CREATE A GOOD BUT UNEXPECTED SITUATION FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER. EVER SINCE I WAS LITTLE I WOULD GAZE UPON THE SUNSETS. I WOULD WATCH AS THE GOLDEN HOUR WOULD UNFOLD AND CHANGE THE COLORS ON THE SKIN MINUTE BY MINUTE. AND I WAS ALWAYS SO AMAZED AT WHAT LIGHT COULD DO. IT’S SO FLATTERING AND ENHANCES EVERYTHING. SO, I WANT TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU MY EXPERIENCES WITH LIGHT, BUT ALSO INSPIRE YOU AND TEACH YOU ALL ABOUT THAT GOD GIVEN GORGEOUS FLIPPING NATURAL LIGHT! BUT THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE. THIS ISN’T ME STANDING UP FRONT TELLING YOU ALL ABOUT MY BUSINESS, THIS IS ME JUST PASSING ALONG KNOWLEDGE I HAVE LEARNED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS!

AND WHAT IS THE ROUNDABOUT IDEA OF THE KNOWLEDGE I’LL BE PASSING ALONG, YOU MAY ASK?

// WE’LL BEGIN WITH A FUN GAME, COCKTAIL HOUR AND SOME SNACKIES (COURTESY OF HUBS.) I’LL BE HONEST, I DO NOT WANT THIS TO BE A THING WHERE WE PUT PEOPLE ON LEVELS. WE’RE ALL EQUAL HERE. MY HOME WILL BE A PLACE OF JOYOUS OPEN ARMS AND I WILL NOT TOLERATE CLIQUES. NONE OF US SHOULD BE PUT IN A CATEGORY OF LEVELS. WE ARE ALL HERE TO LEARN. AND QUITE HONESTLY, I HOPE TO LEARN FROM MYSELF AND FROM EACH OF YOU. AS IN MY TITLE, THIS IS A COLLABORATIVE EXPERIENCE. WHAT THIS MEANS IS WE ALL ARE BOUNCING POSITIVE VIBES OFF OF BUILDING FRIENDSHIPS AND SUPPORT SYSTEMS. AND I AM KEEPING THIS SMALL. 6 PEOPLE. SO YOUR BOUND TO HAVE TO TALK TO EVERYONE! ON A SIDE NOTE: I AM SURE I’LL HAVE SOME 90’S PLAYLIST JAMMING, SO A MINI DANCE SESH MAY POSSIBLY HAPPEN? WHO KNOWS. WE’LL SEE! DANCING IS A FINE WAY TO SHAKE THE NERVOUS JITTERS.

// NEXT. SECTION ONE: THE BORING PART OF LIGHT. SO, TO BEGIN TACKLING THAT LIGHT, YOU MUST KNOW YOUR CAMERA AND MANUAL SETTINGS. HE/SHE IS YOUR FRIEND! AND TO DEVELOP A STRONG PERSONAL STYLE, KNOWING HOW TO MANEUVER AND MANIPULATE CERTAIN SITUATIONS, WILL HELP YOU GET JUST THAT! SO WE’RE GOING TO DELVE INTO MANUAL AND ALL THAT GOES INTO IT! WE’LL THEN MOVE ON TO KELVIN (TEMPERATURE/WHITE BALANCE) AND HOW TO USE THAT. LEARNING ABOUT KELVIN TEMPS MAY BLOW YOUR MIND! WE’RE GOING TO DISCUSS EQUIPMENT AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO LIGHT! THE DIFFERENCES IN LENSES AND CAMERA BODIES CAN DIFFER GREATLY, AND CAN TRULY HELP YOU SCULPT YOUR STYLE EVEN MORE. THEN OF COURSE AT THE END OF THIS BORING PART IS QUESTION TIME! ASK AWAY AND DON’T BE SHY! THIS IS YOUR TIME TO LEARN!

// POTTY BREAK / WATER BREAK / BREATHER

 

// NOW, THIS IS THE PART I’M MOST EXCITED FOR. SECTION TWO: THE ART OF LIGHT. GUYS, YOU KNOW HOW BIG OF A DEAL NATURAL IGHT IS TO US PHOTOGRAPHERS. AND WE ALL HAVE STORIES UPON STORIES WHERE WE’RE PUT IN OUR NOT IDEAL LIGHTING SITUATION AND WE STRAIGHT UP PANIC. AM I RIGHT? WELL, THIS SECTION WILL HOPEFULLY HELP YOU TO BECOME MORE COMFORTABLE IN THOSE AWFUL SITUATIONS! WE’RE GOING TO WALK THROUGH ALL KINDS OF LIGHT. YOU KNOW, THE HARSH LIGHT, TWILIGHT, GOLDEN HOUR, MID DAY LIGHT AND MORE!!  LEARNING HOW TO USE ALL OF THESE LIGHTS TO MY ADVANTAGE IS WHAT REALLY BEGAN SHAPING ME TO A POINT WHERE I FELT CONTENT IN MY STYLE. AND I SLOWLY BEGAN LEARNING THAT LIGHT GIVES US ART. YOU CAN MAKE PURE ART WITH YOUR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS JUST BY USING THE LIGHT JUUUUST RIGHT. AND ONCE YOU’VE REACHED A PLACE WHERE YOU’VE FOUND YOUR KIND OF LIGHT, YOU’LL NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO ACHIEVE THAT LIGHT DURING A WEDDING OR SESSION. SO I WILL BE GIVING SOME TIPS ON WHAT TO DO IN THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE YOU SEE YOUR LIGHT AND YOU WANT TO USE IT BUT SOME THINGS ARE STANDING IN YOUR WAY. AFTER THIS PORTION, I WOULD LOVE, AGAIN, IF YOU ASKED QUESTIONS! I AM ALSO OPENING UP THE FLOOR FOR A FEW NON LIGHT RELATED QUESTIONS, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO STRAY TOO FAR. AND YOU WON’T WANT TO EITHER, BECAUSE YOU’LL BE ANXIOUS TO GET TO THE NEXT PART.

// A STYLED SHOOT! DUH! THIS WON’T BE YOUR ORDINARY STYLED SHOOT. FOR ONE, I WILL BE RENTING LENSES AND CAMERAS FOR YOU ALL TO USE! THIS WAY YOU’LL GET TO EXPERIENCE WHAT COLORS AND LIGHT EACH LENS AND CAMERA BRING. YOU’LL GET TO EXPLORE THEM ALL! SECONDLY, I WON’T REALLY BE TAKING PICTURES. I WANT YOU TO ASK QUESTIONS WHILE YOU’RE SHOOTING. I WANT TO WALK YOU THROUGH EVERYTHING AND BE ABLE TO ENCOURAGE YOU OR HELP YOU TRY SOMETHING NEW! AND I WON’T BE ABLE TO DO THAT WITH A CAMERA IN MY FACE. WILL I? I’VE BEEN TO THESE THINGS WHERE WE FOLLOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER AROUND WHILE THEY TAKE PHOTOS OF THE STYLED TABLE, BUT PERSONALLY I WOULD LEARN NOTHING FROM THAT. SO I WANT TO DO THE OPPOSITE. PLUS, I’LL BE HAVING SOME PRETTY KILLER VENDORS CONTRIBUTING TO THIS DAY, SO NO DOUBT IT’S GOING TO BE A SHOOT YOU’LL WANT IN YOUR PORTFOLIO.

// THEN AFTER ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK AND YOUR BRAINS JUST CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE, IT’LL BE TIME FOR DIN DIN. IF YOU DON’T KNOW, MY HUSBAND IS AN INSANELY GOOD COOK. SO JUST SIT BACK AND RELAX WHILE HE FEEDS US A SCRUMPTIOUS MEAL. I’LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME AS WELL, SO PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK! I AM AN OPEN BOOK.

GAHHHH, I AM SO SO EXCITED FOR THIS! I AM JUST SO SIKED TO BE ABLE TO GIVE TO OTHERS WHAT I WAS NEVER GIVEN WHEN FIRST STARTING OUT. SHARING MY LOVE OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND LIGHT WITH YOU ALL IS SO PRECIOUS AND I DO NOT TAKE IT LIGHTLY. I TRULY HOPE TO BUILD NEW FRIENDSHIPS WITH YOU ALL. AND I WOULD HOPE FOR YOU THAT YOU WOULD WALK AWAY STANDING JUST A TAD BIT TALLER AND JUST A TINY BIT MORE CONFIDENT. AND TO, OF COURSE, FIND YOURSELF UNDERSTANDING LIGHT JUST A BIT MORE.
