First of all I want to say
Thank you for stopping by my little blog, reading, and leaving comments.
I read every one.
And thank you to those of you who email me or leave comments of Facebook.
My little blog is growing and you all make me feel like a total rockstar.
I've had a few questions recently about photography.
I thought I'd answer them here.
Q: What camera do you use?
A: I use two. Professionally, I use a Canon 7D. The three pictures below are all with my 7D. I love it.
I'm still learning (always will be!) but I learn best by teaching so if anyone has any questions specific to
the 7D I'd be happy to answer best I can. The other camera I use is a Canon Rebel xsi.
That was the first DSLR I purchased when I knew I wanted to be a photographer and I'm quite proud
at how far I'm able to push it. I still use that camera. I mainly use it for the "everyday" pictures of life here. It pretty much goes everywhere with me.
Q: What lens do you use?
A: Just one, actually. I have a 50mm 1.8. It's a low-end lens on the professional front but again, I'm
pretty proud at what it's been able to do for me. Currently, I'm saving up for a new lens. I do rent several lenses. The work horse for me for, say, shooting a wedding, is the Canon 24-70. Renting is a great way for you to try out new lenses and figure out what will work best for you! If you are local to the St. Louis area, Schillers is a great resource. But I'm pretty partial to fixed lenses.
Q: What editing software do you use?
A: Great question! I use both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. (Although I've been
Actions are an amazing tool for both professional and non-professional photographers.
They really speed up my workflow, which ultimately allows me more time with my family.
I am in love love love with Florabella.
I just adore sun-drenched images and the Florabella actions just accentuate my images.
The three pictures below are all hand edited and then run with Florabella actions.
