October was the month for Double Exposures was the theme.  Sharleen Stuart Photography chose this theme because she wanted to take herself and all of you outside of your comfort zone.

Congratulations, Williams, Anja for your stunning submission.  Sharleen loved this image.

“It simply took my breath away.  The incredible composition of the hands over the face yet seeing the face as well of seeing the hands was amazing. There is such an intensity in this image that is enhanced by the black and white contrasts.  This really encompassed all that I was looking for.  Thank you for submitting such a beautiful image.”

November 2017: Harvest

Tags

, , , , , ,

We are definitely in a season of change.  Most of our team are north and so their changes will be much more significant.  Signs of change will be evident in the colors of the leaves, the crisp air in the mornings and the evenings.  Even flurries of snow in some places.  Down south, everything is still green (except the trees damaged by hurricane winds), it’s still hot, but the days have a gentle breeze, and the mornings you can find frost on the car.  As we prepare for the upcoming winter, we start to think pumpkins, spiced coffee and crops.  This month theme choice by Katherine of Cobert Photography is Harvest and perfect for this time of year.

Katherine chose the theme Harvest for this reason:

Living in the Midwest, in the middle of farm country, November is when everyone is finishing up harvesting their crops. Those crops are the livelihood of so many people. Then later in the month, families gather together to celebrate and be thankful for that very harvest they were blessed with. So it seems fitting to choose harvest as this month’s theme.

You may have notice that we only have 7 blog contributions this month.  Due to various reason Claire of Wilhelmina Photography has felt a need to step back and refocus on things at home.  We are very sorry to loose Claire as part of our team. We have enjoyed getting to know more about Claire and seeing how much she has grown as an artist during her journey with us.  We are thankful for the time she gave us and we wish Claire well in the future.

Replacing Claire will be Lynne Grant Photography and we look forward to getting to know Lynne and her family and the beautiful countryside that she lives in much better .

 

For the rest of the month of November and up until December 5th the theme is Harvest

We look forward to seeing your images on our Facebook page and our Instagram Page.  Don’t forget to tag the Instagram posts with #sharesix_harvest.  Each month we feature one artist on our Facebook and Webpage banner.  We will also do an interview with the featured artist, so share your images to be a part of this opportunity.

Guest Interview: Sarah Villarreal Photography

Sarah Villarreal Photography is our featured guest artist for the Reflections theme.  Liz of It’s Still Life Photography by Elizabeth Wilson choose the theme and the winner, and we wanted to learn a little bit more about Sarah and her photography journey.

Tell us a bit about yourself? and Are you a hobbyist or a pro?

I’m a 37 year old mom to a four year old little boy and a two year old little girl. My husband recently retired from the Air Force, so before kids, we lived all over the place including Las Vegas, Nevada and RAF Lakenheath in England. Right now we are in Yorktown, Virginia and enjoy living near the ocean for the first time! I’m originally from the midwest, so it’s my dream come true.

I have a little photography business, Sarah Villarreal Photography, and shoot mostly families, couples, kids and newborns. This year I’ve ventured out into events and professional headshots. The VAST majority of my photos, though, are of my two little ones. They’re my captive models and my son is now getting into it and wanting to “collaborate”. We document some pretty epic dino/monster truck battles.

Acquarium

This is our favorite fish tank at the local aquarium. My son rarely stands still enough to get a silhouette in low light, so this was really cool to catch. I love how he looks to be sneaking up on that enormous fish

Tell us a bit about your photography gear. What is the lens do you not have but you desire to have the most?

I’m kind of a gear hoarder and seem to keep collecting things. I shoot primarily with my Canon 6D and my Canon 5D Mark ii and with my 24-70mm 2.8 and my 100mm 2.8 macro. I shoot with two bodies at once during family sessions making me look completely ridiculous, but I love having both lenses ready to go so I avoid sand and dirt in my bodies. I do a lot of beach shoots and can skip out on changing lenses.

I also have an assortment of other prime lenses and really like my 85mm 1.8 for portraits. I have a studio light set up with strobes and soft boxes which I’ve used for headshots and portfolio shoots, but I prefer natural light when I can get it!

My current reach lens is the 70-200mm 2.8, but it’s an arm and a leg, so it’s going to be a while before I can splurge on that. I’d also love to try the Lensbaby Twist 60. It creates such a cool effect, I’d love to just give it a spin!

My daughter is so goofy and I love the way her face is just one of the animals. She’s always smiling and happy, so this grumpy face is a rare capture.

How did your journey to be a photographer happen?

I got into photography the way lots of moms did and decided I needed to figure out my husband’s Canon Rebel after our son was born. My husband was about to deploy and I really wanted to capture beautiful moments for him since he was going to miss so much of those first two years. I became obsessed with it and spent every spare minute taking online classes, scouring YouTube videos and teaching myself Lightroom, Photoshop and portrait retouching. Once friends started seeing my pictures, I started taking on families. Recently I worked as an in-hospital staff photographer for newborns taking Fresh 48 sessions for new parents. I shot, edited and returned up to 10 family galleries a day and it was so much fun and amazing practice. I also teach an online beginning photography course, which has been really wonderful as well!

My goal this summer was to start learning macro photography. We planted a pollinator garden and drew in some really cool visitors.

Who inspires you?

The two photographers who have inspired me the most are Lindsay Adler and Dana McLeod. Lindsay Adler is an amazing fashion photographer out of New York who is an incredible teacher and I’ve worked through all of her books. Her posing book truly elevated my posing for women. The second photographer that inspires me is Dana McLeod. Dana started a Facebook challenge page, Snap Love Grow, and was the first person to really reach out and encourage me in the online groups, making me feel like a valuable part of the community. It was through participating in her challenges that I connected with so many other great and supportive photographers and kept my creativity going, even when I was in a rut. I’m truly grateful to her for encouraging me when I didn’t have the confidence at times to jump in. She is so lovely and I miss Snap Love Grow tremendously!

This is a collaboration with my son. He wanted to capture his entire “awesome jump”. I created a series of composites in Photoshop and we both loved how it came out!

What advice would you share to the aspirants in this field?

My advice is to shoot all the time, experiment and be fearless about making mistakes. I recently started taking an aerial silks class (crazy cirque du soleil people swinging around on fabric strips) and I am TERRIBLE. Everyone else in my class has been doing it for years, so I’m self-conscious when I flail around attempting the easiest tricks. I was so frustrated at one point, I debated just giving it up, when one of the students reminded me that everyone I saw in the class had been in exactly the same spot as me when they started out. The things that seem impossible today will eventually become second nature with time and practice. It was a great lesson and humbling to be the absolute worst at something where everyone was watching. To anyone starting out, don’t be afraid to make mistakes and learn! We are all our own worst critic, and everyone is on their own journey and improving as they go. As long as you enjoy it, that’s all that matters!

This is a true to life documentary shot. No posing, no clean up, gratuitous screen time. I love that photography lets me capture the reality of my (sometimes not so pretty) real life.

One thing that you have learnt as a photographer over the years?

I’ve learned that there is no endpoint in photography. There is always something new to learn and goals to reach. After trying macro still lives this summer I’m excited to learn compositing this winter. Photography is truly a limitless art form!

I love this photo because I took it with my iPhone. I think it really proves it’s not about the equipment, it’s how you use it!

Thank you Sarah for sharing your beautiful work with us.

We have about 10 more days for you to submit your {Double Exposure} images for a chance to be featured as the banner on the Facebook page and web page, as well as to do an interview highlighting who you are.  We would love to see your images.

Guest Highlight: September 2017: Reflections

Reflections always intrigue and depending on how the image is taken can mean so many different things to the photographer.  Liz of It’s still Life Photography by Elizabeth Wilson chose our theme for the month of September.

Congratulations to Sarah Villarreal Photography for being selected as our featured guest artist this month.  We loved your image.  Liz shared these reasons for why she chose your image:

“The composition here is fantastic. The curvature and lines lead the viewer to the sweet subject who is so engaged and energized by his experience. The eye then continues to explore the image beginning with the reflection of the child and then into the glass creating a sense of wonder and movement with the water and light. I love how this image encompasses the “reflection” theme on multiple levels.”

October 2017: Double Exposure

Double exposures create a unique way of looking at the world.  Double exposure is a photography technique combining two different images.   These can be done in-camera, in Photoshop or Lightroom or by simply using apps on our phones.

This month Sharleen of Sharleen Stuart Photography chose the theme double exposures.  The reason why she chose this theme:

I love double exposures and the more I see them the more I want to try them.  I wanted to challenge myself to look beyond the singular and look two dimensional.  I also wanted to try to do some of the photos in-camera, and some using photoshop.  I would love to see what you can come up with.

P.S. When I picked this month little did I know that I was going to have foot surgery that would restrict me from leaving my bed for a month, so I have had to use images already taken and work the magic in Photoshop.

It is with sadness that this is the last month that Aubrey of Applewood Photography will be blogging with us.  Aubrey is expecting her baby fairly soon, and she has found that juggling being pregnant, with a newborn due soon, and being a mom to two young daughter plus work full time, she is overwhelmed.  We wish Aubrey every good blessing, a very safe delivery of her new baby, and also abundant health and time to keep up with all she has to do.  It has been a pleasure to have Aubrey blog with us and we are definitely going to miss her.

Replacing Aubrey will be Kim of Kim Sidwell Photography.  Kim has blogged with us before and has decided to re-join us again.  We are so happy to have her come back and blog with us.  You can see more of Kim’s work starting with the November blog.

 

 

Guest Interview with @meli.photosf: Collections

This month the theme was {Collections} and @meli.photosf beautiful water lily image was chosen by Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography.  I wanted to learn more about Melissa and her thoughts about being a photographer, especially someone as young as Melissa.

Tell us a bit about yourself? and  Are you a hobbyist or a pro?

My name is Mélissa and I’m 16 years old. I was born in the province of Quebec in Canada, a beautiful place to do photography. We have big forests and mountains with thousands of lakes.

Photography for me is more a hobby, something that I love to do.  I don’t consider myself a professional photographer. I’m just someone with a camera that loves photography. It’s crazy how you can create something beautiful so easily. I love shooting portrait and landscapes.

_MG_6354

It took the weirdest position to take this photograph, but i got it

Tell us a bit about your photography gear. What is the lens do you not have but you   desire to have the most?

I have the Canon rebel t5 with the lens 18-55 mm but I would like a lens more macro to take higher quality landscapes pictures.

image (1)

The fog makes everything look more beautiful.

How did your journey to be a photographer happen?

The first time I considered doing photography I was 13 years old.  I had just discovered the photographer Jorden Keith, I was obsessed with his photos and I wanted to try to capture beautiful images. I was amazed about how he could take something simple and transform it  into something so beautiful.

I decided to take all the money that I had saved and bought my first camera ever, the one I still have today. I started out by shooting with my friends, then I would started taking it with me when I traveled.

I was upset not being able to completely understand my camera so I took a local photography class that really helped me in many ways. Now I take pictures almost every week and try to post regularly on my Instagram. I would also like to do videos for a really long time too.  Perhaps I may start that too soon.

image (2)

It was so cold but so worth it.

Who inspires you?

Like I mention earlier, Jorden Keith was my most inspiring photographer that i have seen, but then I discovered more photographers through Instagram that made me love photography even more.

One that really inspires me is Andrew Kearns.  I instantly loved his photographs, the more adventure and wild vibe.  After that I then went on his YouTube channel and started listening every video he made. He traveled all around the world for his job (photographer) but he also does it like a hobby, to post on Instagram or his website. He meets new people every week to collaborate.   I just loved his lifestyle. And there is so many more but those 2 are on my top list.

Some photographers that I love : @samuelelkins @kelsealoha @taylorcutfilms @tyfrenchphoto @dfreske @ewokland @airpixels

image (3)

Simple background can be the best.

What advice would you share to the aspirants in this field?

I would recommend, first, take a photography class if you buy an expensive camera, because you won’t be able to use it properly if you don’t or it will take a long time.  It can help to give you advice and teach you to try different styles. Two, do what you like, photography is art and it’s an amazing way to express yourself. The more you practice the better you get.

IMG_3348

Sunflower in the golden hour, my favorite time of the day.

One thing that you have learnt as a photographer over the years?

I learned that I like to try new “kind” of photography, to look at photographers on Instagram and try to the same style of photography, it help me discover tricks that I did not know before.

@meli.photosf

The view from my camera at 2 mm above the water level, I was so scared.

 

I am excited to watch Melissa grow in her photography.  If you want to see more of Melissa’s  work as a photographer you can find her on Instagram @meli.photosf.

We have a few more days for you to submit your {Reflections} images for a chance to be featured as the banner on the Facebook page and web page, as well as to do an interview highlighting who you are.  We would love to see your images.

Guest Highlight: August 2017: Collections

Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography chose the theme Collections for the month of August. The posting this month was really quiet and we hope that this is just because of last minute holidays and getting children together to get back to school.  While we did not have a lot of images to share we did have some very beautiful images.

Our guest feature this month come from Instagram.  Congratulations @meli.photosf for being selected as our guest feature for August.

Kathy chose this image for the following reasons:

The way the light is hitting the collection of pedals in this image is absolutely stunning! The creamy background and depth of field is beautiful.

September 2017: Reflections

Don’t you just love images created in water puddles, or the shadows reflected on shimmering water, or images in a window.  Do you reflect on things in the past, or the present or future?  This month theme has been chosen by Elizabeth of It’s Still Life Photography by Elizabeth Wilson, and yes it is Reflections.

Elizabeth chose this theme because….

Photographers often seek reflections as a means of artistic expression: to enhance the story and add a bit of wonder and even confusion to images. Reflections often trick the eye or cause a viewer to linger with curiosity. However, photography also causes one to reflect: primarily on the what, the who, the why of the creation…

Guest Interview with @sweethomemarilou: Artificial Light

Ceri of Ceri Herd Photography chose the theme {Artificial Light} this month and she chose the beautiful image shared by @sweethomemarilou on our Instagram page.  I reached out to Marilou to learn a little bit more about her.

 

Tell us a bit about yourself? and  Are you a hobbyist or a pro?

My name is Marilou.  I am 33 years old.  Prior to being a photographer I was a yoga teacher for kids.  Capturing kid’s candidness and showing up their best version of themselves has always been a part of my life.  I really began to get more serious as a photography with my everyday muse – my son.  For now I shoot family, maternity and new born.  I recently jumped to being a pro photographer.  For now I am very lucky, I have a bunch of colleagues and friends who have hired me after seeing my work on my Facebook page.

IMG_5981

Know the light.  I have this kind of light each day in my house around 4pm.  I typically do not use my camera in the house before that time of day.  

Tell us a bit about your photography gear. What is the lens do you not have but you   desire to have the most?

Right now I shoot with a Canon 6D and mostly with my 35mm 2:1 lens.  It feels like the 35mm is perfect for scenery and family photos.  I have a portable flash but I never use it. I really love the warmth of natural light.  My next purchase will surely be an 85mm sigma art lens.

IMG_6504

Ordinary moments can be a great capture too.  There is art everywhere.  You do not always need to go onto the Kilimanjaro mountain top to create great art. 

How did your journey to be a photographer happen?

I began taking photographs over 2 years ago when my son was born and I am definitely a real mom phototog.   Over the last year I have stepped out and begun shooting babies other than mine and shooting in light that is not what I would typically find in my home. This has been great for my creativity.

IMG_8699

White is such a perfect reflector

Who inspires you?

The first Instagram photographer that I love is the very awesome and popular Meg Loeks – @meg_nlo.  With her 3 sons and country life, I can totally relate to her.  She was a huge inspiration to me.

I am also a huge fan of the great storytelling feed of Hannah Carpenter – @hannahcarpenter

In addition, I also love the work of @jamieeilts, @sophiejanephoto, @mamadrey88, @elle.hartle, @vironica, @julieaudouxphotographie, @europeanmommyof2, and so many others.  If you are looking for inspiration definitely check out their work.

cropped-sweethomemarilou.jpg

This is an interesting spot with light everywhere.  I mostly love this one for the impressive shadow created behind my son.

What advice would you share to the aspirants in this field?

There is always a room for the best, your point of view has never been seen.

IMG_6062

Go for opportunity.  I was following a photographer on Instagram who recently bought ducks.  I asked her if I could go and shoot at her house and she said yes.  I love this photo because the rubber duck comes alive

One thing that you have learnt as a photographer over the years?

This is an art of compromises.  Sometimes you have to let go of perfection and just capture what you love even if it is ordinary.

IMG_8427

Go Crop and faceless, this is great memories too.  

If you want to see more of Marilou’s  work as a mama photographer you can find her on Instagram @sweethomemarilou and her client work on her Facebook page MarilouCotePhotographer.

We have a few more days for you to submit your {Collection} images for a chance to be featured as the banner on the Facebook page and web page, as well as to do an interview highlighting who you are.  We would love to see your images.

Guest Highlight: July 2017: Artificial Light

This month Ceri of Ceri Herd Photography chose the theme {Artificial Light}. This month the postings on Facebook and Instagram were a little slower and we have to hope that it is the summer months winding down and getting the children ready to go back to school that is causing the slow down. We certainly miss you.

Our guest feature image comes from Instagram.  Congratulations @sweethomemarilou!! Ceri chose this image because:

“This image captivated me the moment I saw it! Talk about taking 
the everyday to another creative playing field! The lighting, contained by the refrigerator’s framing, focuses our attention on the subject perfectly, and the cheeky little fella, so endearing!”

Take some time to go over to Instagram and take a look @sweethomemarilou‘s page and share a little bit of love with her.
