When I FIRST thought that Allison was coming down the weekend after my birthday, I immediately texted my friend Amy Ortiz to see if she could come and do a photoshoot of us. For a while I’ve wanted to do a paint fight with Allison, since she’s an artist (and I’m an amateur artist XD), but of course, it’d been 10 months since we had pictures done! And I needed a new phone home screen!

Hey, guys! Today I have something special for you all. Recently, I’ve received a good amount of business questions from aspiring photographers. Questions about not only camera settings and such, but my website, pricing, and legal matters. Today, I’m allowing you all to ask me any business-related question you wish, and next week, I’ll answer them! So leave them all in comments. I can’t wait to answer!
Hey, you guys! I was browsing back in Lightroom and discovered that I actually have a good amount of pictures that I never posted, all the way up to nearly a year ago. So I thought I’d do an archive photo dump! Some of these are from a photography challenge I nearly finished and others are just random.
Allison and I have an unusual friendship. We’re best friends, and yet we live over three hundred miles apart. “What’s so unusual about that?” you might ask. That in and of itself is not out of the ordinary; many best friends have had to move away from each other and keep up their friendship long-distance. What makes our friendship unique is that neither of us had to move away: in fact, we became best friends before we had even met each other in real life.
Whether you’re shooting people, pets, or petunias (how’s my alliteration?), taking pictures indoors can be confusing and annoying. Some days the pictures may turn out great, and other days…not so much. I used to hate my pictures that I took inside, but I discovered in time that there as an art to it, like everything else. I’ve now done an entire photoshoot inside, not to mention lots of stock photography for my blog. Without further ado, my 3 tips.
Like many photographers, I’m afraid I’m a bit of a gear-hoarder. It’s known as G.A.S. – Gear Aquisition Syndrome. I believe I have around 5-6 lenses, which is pretty small compared to some of my colleagues! Nonetheless, in my experience hoarding gear, I’ve found some really epic lenses and today I’m going to delve into my favorite three lenses – the ones I always pick up and the first to include when I go on vacation or out on a shoot!
