Photography Unraveled


Ever had the experience where you want to rip your camera apart when you have a blurry picture of your active child? Ever wonder why your subjects sometimes look jaundice? And what the heck is RAW? There is so much to know about photography in order to get the images you want, even if you're a casual shooter taking snapshots of your family and friends, and unfortunately, there's also a lack of simple, easy to understand, and most importantly, FREE resources out there. If you'd like some answers to these, and many more questions, check out my other blog, Photography Unraveled. My goal with this blog is to use my experience from working in a camera store and shooting pictures (some as a hobby, some as a business) to help everyone from the "Soccer Mom" to the "Hobbyist" get the images they've always wanted. Check it out!

My Favorite Wedding Shot

I'm no professional, and I haven't shot many weddings, but this is definitely my favorite that I have captured while shooting the few weddings that I have.  I know it's not one the bride and groom would choose to hang above their mantle because you can hardly tell that they are there, but I like it for the story it tells.  I shot this at my brother's wedding in Oregon.  He was married in an old Mennanite church.  This was the first time he had seen his bride in her dress, and everyone cleared the room to let them have a private moment, except for me of course.  I snuck up on the balcony, snapped on a fisheye lens, and was lucky enough to get the shot.  Sometimes I feel like the pictures I shoot are more like a gift to me.  On rare occassions, I get to share in intimate moments and capture true emotion in faces and moments in time that might never repeat themselves, and that is truly a gift.

That is seriously a wonderful picture. I always wanted pictures like that at my wedding, and was seriously let down. I bet your brother was so happy to have great pictures. Good job!
