I love photography.
I also love teaching.
I really really love combining both! Shooting and teaching at the same time!
Mentor sessions are great for targeting personal questions and needs which we can address in the office setting, or in the field. I’m trying to stress even more the importance of “field experience” for private lessons. We can “talk” for a long time about photography technicalities, OR… we can just get out and shoot and talk and experience it together.
When the lovely, Sandy determined her questions, I prescribed a “field experience” section of our session with a follow up afterwards in the office. She brought along her fabulous sister/BIL team for our models.
We had a great time learning all about backlighting
How to properly expose for backlight…
How to take silouette shots…
How to make the sun flare with sharp rays, and how to capture it artistically right where you want it.
Hooray for learning! Hooray for shooting together!
Brooke Snow is a Lifestyle photographer in Cache Valley, Utah. She is a proud new mother to a humorous baby boy with hair that sticks straight up in the back. They enjoy walking and biking a lot… it helps stimulate creative brain power, challenge the extra pounds, and they discover the ultimate secret photo locations on their daily jaunts.
Brooke teaches private photography lessons as well as monthly photography classes in Logan, Utah.
I usually dial my aperture to 22 or so to get the sharp rays… is that how you do it? I figured it out by accident on a particularly sunny day. Of course using it correctly and artistically is the real trick (which I have yet to master).
ah how i loved our long talk on all things photography. I want to come down some day and do a shoot together with more mentoring!!!!! GREAT shots with Sandy!
We all had so much fun! Thanks again! I can’t wait to get back out there and do more experimenting with light.
