I love it when I get to teach someone all I know about photography but honestly a day isn’t enough time,lol.
Nicola and I met a couple of years ago when I had the pleasure of photographing her http://mphphotography.net/blog/2009/08/royal-gems-nicola/ and she was so cute and sweet and I was so happy when she contacted me and asked about doing a one on one with me. She came over this past Sunday and was here from about 10:30-6pm or so and it was a jam packed day. We went over the basics and then went to practice a bit and then talked about so many things and I’m sure Nicola’s mind was overwhelmed by the end of the day but she did great and loved the shots she took of our model Grace.
I had invited a previous client to be our model for a little session so that I could teach Nicola just what I do during each session and how to find good lighting and showed her how to pose and what settings to use and she’s definitely a quick learner and I tried to make it alot of fun as well.
I’m more about hands on teaching, reading is good, but showing someone is better I find, so it was all about hands on experience and I think that you learn more when you are shown what to do.
Below are a few shots of Grace and I can’t thank her enough for coming out and posing for us, its always so much fun photographing her.
Nicola, my little protege, it was a joy teaching you and helping you to set forth and achieve your goals, remember to keep practicing and I know you will get to where you want to go. I wish you all the best as you start off on your photography journey, I hope to be able to say, “I knew her when…”
