Hi everyone welcome to my Photography by Me website. Photography has always been a passion of mine ever since I was 12 years old and over the years I have purchase numerous products in the Photography world to try to improve my skill set.
Being a foster kid from Texas with limited opportunity in terms of gear, I was oftentimes looking for alternatives to help me get better at Photography. This usually came in the form of me taking pictures of everything and everyone for hours on end.
Now I want to give back.
Over the years I’ve learned a lot about photography, a lot about lighting, a lot of editing exercises that help you improve your photos and getting a better quality photos… and I want to offer other some insight into may of these as well as provide you with updated tips and techniques that the real pros are using these days.
A little story about my photography life.
Growing up I was always a creative girl. In fact, I was enrolled into a College photography class at age 15. I was the only 15-year old
in the college class at the time. I always felt I had to work a little harder and do whatever it took to gain that extra edge on the competition.
As you all know we’re all in competition with one another truing to gain more Clientele and to impress the customer enough for a continuous clientele.
So how you perform and how your skill set of all this is critical to this?
I literally used to spend hours out doors taking pictures of the flowers and the scenery practicing my technique that I learned from and videos, and emulating some of my heroes in the photography world, these include Kelli Elizabeth, Brooke Schwab, and weddings by Alefiya Akbarally.
I would Also spend hours working on ways to improve my editing skills. I bought just about every product and every manual made out of time to improve.
The Game Has Changed.
Different Positions require different skill sets and different body types but ultimately the core and the fundamentals of all success in photography these days is hinged on the knowledge if lighting, shape, form and color. In essence, I think it has gone back to the roots.
Much of the content that in going to be discussing here is going t to ne centered around improving your skill set, with an underlying focus always being on shooting skills, speed and ability to find the perfect picture, color, texture and form.
The game has changed and so does the way you need to developed your skills.
They Say Perfect Practice, Leads to Perfection,
There is no point practicing if you’re going the wrong way and you’re not being productive using the allotted time you have. A lot can be accomplished in an hour or two sitting outdoors with the right motivation and the right techniques.
This can lead to a better shot, more skills, better editing, and ultimately more clientele.
So have a look around and if you ever have anything to share in respect to building your own Photography skills, I would love to hear it.
