Best Of


1.  WHY YOU SHOULD SHOOT IN MANUAL MODE.  How could I not share?  This is like my life mantra!!  Sometimes I think my Photo Basics class could potentially be scary to people because from day 1 the students shoot in manual instead of automatic. I don’t dance around easy priority modes as an option when I am 100% convinced manual mode will always give you a better image if you know how to work the settings.  The best part though, is that it really isn’t that scary :)

2.  THE TRUTH ABOUT FASCINATING NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY.  Many of you probably already know this, but I didn’t for several years.  This article fabulously explains “how” those too good to be true use of props and poses actually occur.  If you’re not a pro in photoshop, never put a newborn in harms way in order to achieve something that isn’t really possible in real life anyway. The best part, is that now I don’t feel so bad for not being able to make the newborns I’ve shot actually keep those cute poses.

3.  THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOTIVATION AND INSPIRATION

4. ARE YOU GETTING THE BEST OF YOU? I loved this post. And came to the conclusion this morning that I need very little to be happy, but I need the little things, VERY OFTEN! There really is a daily maintenance involved with taking care of ourselves so we can care for others.

5. I WON’T LET YOU DOWN. I’m about as far behind on pop culture as they come, so I’m probably the last one in the world to see this, BUT… I love how Danielle took this inspiring phrase and made it a moral for us all to strive by.
