Most of you know by now that I work full-time in insurance marketing, and I also run a photography business on the side. I normally like to do one post a year just on the photo shoot aspect of things, and show everyone what I’ve been up to in my other life! You’ll see everything from theater shots to business shots to family shots and more. So, here are a few of my favorites from last year, 2015!
Most of you know that, along with this blog and my full-time job in insurance, I also run a photography business on the side.
I LOVE taking photos. I’m ALWAYS learning something new. I’ve been doing it for years now. But I still get frustrated with one thing: when I miss the dadgum shot.
Once a moment has passed, you can’t get it back! And it’s SO important to savor it all… to relish those moments. But you know what’s equally important, if you ask me? To be able to look back and relish those moments all over again. A month from now. A year from now. Fifty years from now.
And that’s where photographs come in. These days, it’s so easy to get snap-happy at a moment’s notice: we just reach into our purses for our smartphones or minuscule cameras and start clicking away at anything and everything.
The problem is… it’s so easy for those photos to come out badly! You think you’ve taken a wonderful picture of your beautiful boy standing by himself for the first time, but actually you’ve managed to capture the moment when he falls down and starts wailing! You think you’ve snapped a stunning image of a horse galloping along the beach, but actually it’s just a dark blob against an overexposed background. You think you’ve achieved the perfect shot of your wonderful parents laughing together on their anniversary, but you take a look and you’ve managed to capture… a blur.
If you can relate, I have good news for you! My friends Ryan and Steph at Ultimate Bundles have put together an incredible product to help with your photography woes. It’s called The Ultimate Digital Photography Bundle (Beginner’s Edition), and it contains a curated collection of ebooks and video training guides to help you become a better photographer.
All the resources have been provided by professional, world-renowned photographers who are experts in teaching others – even complete beginners. You won’t need to switch up to a more expensive camera to make full use of the bundle (even if you just use your iPhone for photographs), and you don’t need to neglect your family for weeks upon weeks of training! You can learn everything in little chunks – whenever you have a spare moment. And let me tell you what: THIS STUFF IS PURE GOLD!
