I wanted to get my creative juices flowing, so I took some new studio shots.  It isn’t easy to be creative with studio photos, but when you get a good pose, they can look so amazing.  As you can see they are very high contrast.  It makes them look striking in my opinion.

I love taking photos of my family.  More than anything else.  Capturing their beauty gives me a great feeling.  They are always kind enough to let me practice on them whenever I ask.  A big reason I got better at shooting people is because of them.  ❤

This is one of my favorite people photos that I’ve taken.  A lot of work went into this photo, from shooting, to editing.  It has pink highlights, among other tones that give it a unique look.  I try to have my own editing style, yet I like to try as many new styles as I can.  Never use presets or filters.  If I did that, I would have to say I took the photo, but someone else edited it.

It’s the desaturation, contrast and 98173091740 other creative tidbits that can make you stand out from other photographers.  I would sooner turn away business, than change they way I create.  I like to have an edgy style.  It’s 2011.  Not 1980.  I tend to put in way too much time into editing a picture.  Not over-editing, just making sure it is as perfect as I can get it.

I don’t want you to come to me because I have a camera.  I want you to come to me because you want my creativity…
