So I REALLY love beautiful pictures!!! I love the lighting, the angles, the colors and fun backgrounds. I love watching a photographer at work...mainly because I am in awe of the skill set they possess that I will NEVER understand. I try to take my own pictures and just get frustrated when it doesn't turn out the way that I want (whine). I feel that I have the tools but not the know how. I am hoping (fingers crossed) I am not the only one out there lost and confused...raise of hands please? Well I have asked our very own Janelle for some user friendly advice for all of us challenged in the "point and shoot" area. She has graciously agreed to teach us some tips and tricks of the trade to make our pictures go from blah to ah! I am VERY excited that Janelle decided to start with terminology because that is a basic that completely eludes me. Here is Janelle from JC Photography with her FIRST photography tutorial!!!!!! Take it away sister =).
