My apologies to my regular readers for being MIA lately. It’s not that I haven’t had work, I actually have lots of pretty pictures to show you. I just took a break to find myself. You see, this business thing has gotten the best of me. I let dollar signs and lack of interest dictate my love and passion for my photography. I had to sit back an evaluate what it is that I want to do with Poetic Edge.
I get a lot of questions regarding modeling here in Charlotte, NC. I am not expert at this subject but I do know that the modeling world here is rather small. However, this should not detour you from getting out there. Hopefully you will find these tips useful.
As a photographer, I use many tools everyday to help my business run. One of those tools SmugMug, a client proofing site for photographers. I have used SmugMug for over 2 years and so far am happy with the platform as a whole. Here is my small list of pros and cons on using SmugMug.
Wedding season is coming and that means bridal portraits! Many times I have brides come to me asking where they should take their bridal portraits. Usually, bridal portraits are on the day of the wedding but sometimes there isn’t enough time. Charlotte NC has some amazing locations. This list of 10 Bridal Locations are some of my favorite places to shoot in.
I have photographed for over 8 years. My first camera was a Canon Powershot and I took that thing everywhere. Eventually I save enough money to purchase a Rebel XTi and my passion for photography grew. Now I have a Canon 7d with the hopes of one day owning a full frame camera with tack sharp focus. But for now, my 7D has taught me a lot. Lately I have leaned on that camera, a 50 mm lens (1.4), and natural light. The first photo in this session was made with that basic set up.
