Over the years so many people have been so helpful as I grow in my photography skills. The world of image creation is so much happier and more fun when everyone is helping everyone else. My friend Louis told me something right around the time he let me tag along on my first wedding. He said that a lot of photographers wouldn’t help out the newbies (which I had found to be true) because they were insecure with more competition. But he was more than willing to help because he said it was the right thing to do. He said I might become better than him someday , and I might be charging more, and I might even take some of his jobs. But he was ok with that.
I’ve learned a lot over the years since that conversation and have learned a lot from so many other photographers out there who have shared so much with me. I don’t feel at all like I have arrived yet, but I do want to be open to help whoever I can and share whatever I can.
So here it is, the first section of a new site with some tips and tricks from my whole shoot process. This section is a step by step summary of three trash the dress sessions I have done. Everything from concept all the way to Photoshop. So please check it out and leave me comments as to how I can make it better.
