These beauties are my new photog friends! Aren’t they cute, all blondes….they are all super nice and I look forward to getting to know them better over the summer while we soak up all of Teales’ professional knowledge. Teale is so sweet to pass on what she knows as a professional in the wedding industry, unlike so many pro’s who help you only for profit, Teale does it because she truly enjoys helping others. On this day we photographed each other to remind ourselves how uncomfortable being photographed can be and to practice giving direction and making the person your photographing feel good and have a good time. I learn best in hands on situations so I plan on learning alot in the next three months, I will be able to 2nd shoot an engagement and two weddings along with other shoots. It isn’t easy to come by this kind of learning opportunity, I am glad to drive to San Diego for this, it is a beautiful place and I am having fun! In other news I am happy to announce that while I have been going back and fourth with investing in the mark ii I made the decision to instead buy myself a flash and the Tamron 28-75mm since I cannot afford the canon 24-70mm right now….This way I have a great all around lens, the 580 ex ii flash, my primes, and for now the 450D will do just fine……for now Hopefully after this summer I will be adding the full frame to my list !!
