Aren't They Cute?

I went to my sisters, house in Grand Rapids this weekend for a photography party. She had a local professional photographer, Monica Gould (check out her site, she's phenomenal) agree to come by and give us some pointers.

We all brought our camera’s over and wouldn’t you know every one was different. Ha! So she gave us some great tips that are universal for picture taking such as: (these are just how I remembered her tips, not her words)
1. It’s fine to chop off the top of someone’s head *Gasp* Who knew?
2. It’s not fine to chop feet or hands off however
3. Don’t use a flash
4. Green looks crappy when black and white
5. Make a person/face off center to add interest

So there was a lot of trial and error. I fiddled with my camera and got some good shots and lots of horrendous ones. But all in all I learned a ton and I’m not so afraid of my settings now!

About Me

My photo
I'm easily distracted by shiny things and brownies. I love autumn and all things associated with it... except raking leaves. I'm a HUGE fan of smiling until your face hurts and laughing so hard milk comes out your nose.
