Thank you so much to everyone who joined in on my first Instagram Live! I loved getting to interact with you all, see your questions, and be able to cover so much so quickly! For those of you who weren’t able to make it, I’ve put together a little recap with just about everything we covered.
Besides gear, which was the main thing covered, here were a few questions we went over…
+ “Who are photographers who inspire you?”
Lauren Scotti, Dawn Charles, & Melissa Marshall.
+ “How long has it taken you to get to this point in photography?”
I’ve been taking photos since I was a freshman in high school. So about 7 years! I remember one of the first photo assignments ever given to me by art teacher- “photograph a chair in a creative way.” So what was my big creative photo? A toilet. Yep, you read that right. A TOILET. I thought I was so creative and out of the box, (lol.) Needless to say, everyone has to start somewhere!
+ “What presets do you use?”
I have about 6 of my own presets I’ve made for Lightroom. I’m working on perfecting them so I can offer them to you guys soon! (Also- this past week I purchased Dawn Charles Presets and I’m OBSESSED. They are so beautiful and I highly recommend them.)
+ “Do you offer mentorships?”
Currently? No. Soon? Yes! With in the next few months I will be offering mentor sessions- face to face or screen to screen :) Where ever you are- we’ll make it work!
Until then, head over to Thrive Modern! This is a fun filled photography workshop weekend hosted by myself, and the lovely Melissa Marshall. Session I + Session II are sold out, but we will announce more dates soon! <3
+ “Are boys welcome at Thrive Modern?”
Currently, Thrive Modern is just for the ladies.
Now for the gear!
