4 Tips to Perfect Lighting

Let’s talk about lighting.  I love backlit shooting.  Not sure what that is?  That’s when you have the sun behind your subject and you are shooting towards the sun.  It creates a very sun drenched photo, but you have complete control over the amount of sun that comes into your camera and the artistic effect it can have on your photos.

THIS ONE SIMPLE MISTAKE HAS COST ME HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS!

I do IPS for my full sessions.  What does that mean?  It means that when a session is done, I edit and set up a date for the client to view their edits in person, with me by their side, to help them choose prints and products that they want.  This generally helps increase your sales and is great if you have the time, space and desire to bond more with clients by giving them a full experience.

A BLUSH WORKSHOP | JUNE 23, SUTTER CREEK, CA.

We want you doing things RIGHT.  Price yourself the way you should (you'll hear how Angie and I both do things, which is different, but profitable), learn how to market yourself, learn what to do once you have a client that wants to book you and more!  And when we're all done with that, we'll eat, because you know, ya gotta eat!  Then we'll go outside and take amazing pictures.  We've thought of every detail.

A Photography Foundation Workshop | June 23 Location: Sutter Creek, Ca.

When a house is built, you can have the best wood for the walls, the finest furnishings, the prettiest colors for paint and your favorite photos adorning the walls.  But if you don't have that home built on a solid foundation, it will crumble.  It may not happen right away, but it will happen. 

The same is true with your business.  IF you do not learn the basics of running a photography business, you won't succeed.  The Foundation, the basics, are what you're going to learn in this workshop.  You may be a newer photographer or you may have been doing this for awhile, either way, so many of you will benefit from spending this time learning.
