moving this blog

I am moving this blog so it will be connected to my personal blog. I plan on posting more of my photographic adventure for my own learning and growth- check in if you wish to see what I am up to in the photography world! I'd love any input, critiques or just a nice compliment here and there! If you are interested you can find me here:

catching up...

I have not posted here in a while. Things have been busy, I am still trying to work on developing photography, it's just a slow process! I got a new lens recently, and am having a great deal of fun figuring it out! I'll try to be better at posting here to track my progress. Here is a great deal of sweetness- incredibly cute kids I've had the privilege of photographing in the past couple months!

senior portrait practice

I had a blast practicing with this beautiful girl! She dances at my parents studio- so I asked if she wouldn't mind letting me practice a senior photo shoot with her- and it was so much fun! I had a hard time narrowing it down, so here are quite a few pictures we took today.

practice series 1-aperture

Settings: ss 1/20 fstop 13 iso 1600Settings: ss 1/160 fstop 4 iso 1600

Ok, so I am working on improving my understanding of exposure- so I decided to work my way through a book I bought about six months ago called Understanding Exposure, and for my own record keeping, and hopefully some progress tracking I will post some results from each assignment. I hope to gain a more clear understanding of how all the settings work together, and how to achieve properly exposed images on a regular basis, instead of getting lucky here and there!
This was the first assignment- working with aperture settings. I set the ring next to the stapler to see if I would notice an object that close going out of focus, and sure enough it did.
