My First time touching and shooting with a DSLR Camera was helping a friend assist at a wedding of her friend. She let me take the camera home a week before and play around with it. I was instantly amazed and also felt like what the heck do I do with this. I learned a little bit about it and went that day to help her! I was sooo nervous, but she said I have seen your pictures with an iphone. Just use that eye that you have and take some great shots. I helped out in the church, photographing family members and other things that she could not concentrate on. After the ceremony was over, I felt a sense of relief. I was like….OK hopefully I didn’t miss anything and got what I needed. Once we stepped outdoors, I felt like I could let loose. I felt like I could get as creative as I want and just have fun! I was not going to miss anything, or be forced to shoot something. It is at that point why I never wanted to shoot a wedding. Way to much responsibility!!!! I love candid shots. I like taking pictures when the subjects are not posing and just being themselves. That is why I love photographing kids so much! They are just a big ball of fun! No worries, no stress, no pressure, just fun!
