just proves that it isnt the equipment but rather the person using it!!! incredible pics, even more so because its just a few weeks from when you first picked it up

Hey thanks! I have a lot to learn still but I'm really enjoying learning as I go.

You have a natural talent. I'm hoping you don't give it up

Haha well technically that shot was my first shoot and it's been two weeks since that shoot and since I've been shooting.

I have a lot of ideas but still so much to learn about lighting and the benefits of different lenses. Thanks for the encouragement!


Can I ask what tutorials you read?!

Also, what lighting did you use? It's amazing!

Haha! Close your window! But yes, I just started learning it two weeks ago. I got the camera, watched some tutorials and then just went out and did my first shoot. I've always released my creativity through my writing but am finding photography to be a much better outlet for creating my vision of what I find beautiful and interesting. Right now I'm solely interested in shooting conceptual and editorial stuff with friends. All of the girls I'm shooting are friends and are not models of any kind. Thanks so much for the support and kind words!

life is not fair.. :lol:

I just looked up basic info on proper exposure but the majority of my education came from JonRMoore who is active on these boards. He's teaching me photography. You can check out his stuff at Flickr.com/jonphoto.

Also I haven't used any lighting techniques yet. No flash or strobes. I've shot all of my photos on the 50mm 1.8 so far. I haven't even tried out another lens. :)

I'll have a look at his stuff. Followed you too.

So everything on you Flickr is natural light and the nifty fifty? You have a gift!

*tosses camera out window*

You could say you started learning 10 years ago and I think most would say your images reflect that experience. But a couple weeks?? That's some scary talent.

And your friends look like models, or you're making them look like models through the camera... or my friends just aren't that good looking.  :p

I've seen Jon's work around the forums here, he's definitely a talented dude. Is he teaching you Lightroom as well? Getting clean images AND processing them like this 'should' come after a lot of experience. For a Muggle like me, it's just a lot to wrap my head around.

Great talent though, looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Yep! All natural light and the 50. I have the Tamron 28-75/2.8 but haven't used it. I have the EF 24-105mm L in the mail on its way to me and am probably going to look into getting a 35mm. I still know nothing about picking the right lens or using flashes and umbrellas for lighting. That's what I'm hoping to learn next.

I know how to use Lightroom and Photoshop already because I work in marketing and communications but he's definitely teaching me more in-depth Lightroom techniques. I kind of got discouraged after my third shoot (short blonde hair girl) because after I edited the shoot, Jon came back and showed me how he would have edited some of them and it was techniques I hadn't even thought of using. So it made me question if I was really good enough to try to be shooting the types of shots I'm doing.

I'm extremely inspired by music and pop culture and am utilizing some of those inspirations in the types of shots I set up. I keep looking for photographers who are just starting out who are doing the types of shoots I'm doing and I can't find any. I'm just finding extremely experienced and talented photographers that I can't really compare my first two weeks of shooting to haha.

OK. I quit. I've been shooting for nearly 40 years and can't do what you've done in two weeks.

The only negative that I can say, and this is a minor thing given your talent, is that when you start moving your subject out of dead-center your photography will be killer.

Do you live in the Knoxville area like Jon?

If y'all get up to the Elizabethton area I want you or Jon to give ME lessons.
