Shooting (photographing) the VIPS

Queen of the Hill.

Small town girl...

Photographs can make or break a person in the media. People can appear to be more powerful, weak, awkward, serious all in just one photograph. That's the beauty about photography. I try to portray the personality of the subject through my photographs. Where someone could look at the picture and get a sense on who they are or what they represent.

This weekend I photographed one of the leading candidates for the President of the United States, Senator Hillary Clinton. It was a little nerve racking but fun. I also had the chance to photograph Chelsea Clinton-just as exciting!

Kicking it at PSU-Q&A style.


There's no place like home...

Usually these places are poorly light so you want to bump up your ISO and open up your aperture. Try and look for different angles. Shoot low, high, through crowds. Try and get something in the frame that relates to the location.

Watch out for security. Those guys aren't very nice :-)Here's my experience about that.

A photo is worth a thousand words..or just a blog

Put your feet up and come join me in my photo adventures, experiences, triumphs and mishaps through my blog.

I plan on documenting and sharing my photo excursions. I'll keep you posted on my tips and tricks, what works and what doesn't and everything else related to photography and then some.
