The Camera

March 6, 2015

Since I started sharing my daily project last week on social media, I have had an influx of emails, texts and phone calls asking about my camera, my lens… even my house.  So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the secrets and let everyone in on a few tricks.

Okay, the Camera.  I use a variety of cameras, from the iPhone 6plus to a Nikon D800 and a mirrorless samsung in between.
My BEST advice, rock the camera that you’ve got!  Here’s my tip #1 to get great pictures of your every day…  Throw what you don’t want in the photo out of the frame (or crop it out) and get down at the level of the subject you are trying to capture.

In this image, you can’t see the book on the dresser to my right or the pile of laundry on the floor, all I can see is what I WANT to remember, and that’s my sweet little 7 year old reading to our sweet little baby.

Here’s what the room looked like from a different angle 🙂

    Love how just a simple angle change can completely change the perspective. Thanks for sharing!

    Such a sweet photo and I love that you showed the different angles! Not only does it show how framing is so important but also that all those photos on Facebook of perfect homes with no evidence of kids but the kids themselves are possibly just great photography. 🙂

    Good advice and I LOVE the shot of your son reading to the baby! So sweet 🙂 And what a difference using the right angle makes…I remember when I got my first prime lens and discovered that I could blur out the piles of laundry in the background of my life. Revelation!

    I love that first shot too! But also love the second one for different reasons. So cool to see how a slight change of angle, changes it all. So glad you are sharing your dailies!!
