Please tell me exactly what camera equipment you use.
My camera is a Canon T6. The lens that rarely comes off my camera is a 28mm 1.8 fixed lens and my 50mm 1.4 fixed lens.
How did you first get interested in photography?
I have always been a record keeper. I can remember being the friend that always had a disposable camera. I would get pictures developed and hang them EVERYWHERE in my room. I loved photos and I still do. I wanted to preserve the moments that made up who I was so I was always pretty avid about taking pictures. But my passion for photography came with the birth of my first baby. I wanted to bottle him up in every stage and photography was the only thing that seemed to quench my need to capture life as I knew it right in the moment. I fell in love with what pictures can do to your heart.
Have you had any formal training/schooling, or has it mainly been trial and error?
Nope, I've always just taken pictures on my own. However, a friend showed me how to control my settings in manual. Then it just took a lot of trial and error. I've taken a few online workshops that I have really enjoyed but mainly taught about editing, not shooting.
Do you shoot in RAW?
No. I tried a couple of times but I just felt that I could still get beautiful images without the work of shooting in RAW and they take up SO much more space.
What kind of post-editing software do you use?
I use Photoshop CS exclusively which I love. I've tried Lightroom and I just couldn't get into it.
