A lot of us get caught up in the latest and greatest craze of photo gear. I’ve noticed that a lot of people are forgetting about capturing a great image from the start. How many times have you heard people say..“Oh we will fix that in post” and “Photoshop can fix that”. Stop it. Stop trying to make everything in focus and sharp. Stop dumping money in gear. Stop trying to be perfect.
My favorite camera? My iPhone. Why? Because it’s always on me when i need it. See something interesting? Take a picture of it, throw a filter on it, done. No more hauling a big camera with a million buttons on it. Just point, shoot, and share.
Did a very simple shoot yesterday with a great model. Just a camera and two lenses. No strobes, just artificial light. Wardrobe was picked out by my MUA and I a couple days before. We went for a rebellious girl look. Location was Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. I think the shoot turned out great and met all out expectations. The wardrobe flowed well with its surroundings and the makeup was awesome. Sometimes, less is more!
