|The 1st time I used a Mark II - I felt like a big girl photographer :)|
So here are a fews things I've been schooled on
2. Lightroom is A-mazing. Ok, I really didn't think so at first...mainly because I had been working exclusively with Photoshop. I am getting the hang of Lighroom now and I see what everyone is talking about. As far as color correcting, it's so much easier, but I would say the best thing about LR is you can import all your images instead of one at a time with PS. Then if you have major editing to do, you can import the image into Photoshop.
So, there are my top 5 for now. Next time, I'll share whatever else I've retained :)
It's been fun helping out at Montag and getting to know everyone. Even though it's just for one day, I do feel I'm learning a little here and there. I'm nowhere near where the other photographers are, but I'll get there someday :) I work with Shonda - I've actually known her for years and she's the lucky one I ask question after question to...well Jeremy too. I've been warned though, if I ask Jeremy the same question more than 3 times he tends to think you're stupid. Yaaaaay, can't wait for that awkward moment :) Anyways, back to Shonda....she said, "I think anyone that cuts hair should work at a Super Cuts for a little while...just for the repetition. It's the same for photographers. If you have the opportunity to work for a studio, you should. The repetition is good for you. The posing, lighting, etc...it'll feel more natural." Smart gal huh? :) When I watch them at a wedding, I'm always amazed how smooth it runs from beginning to end, but it's because they do wedding after wedding every weekend. Maybe I'll come into a large sum of money and I can just devote my life to photography...maybe? no?
For all the noobs out there, I hope this helps!!
