Guest Highlight: March 2018: Contrast

The theme {Contrast} was chosen by Tori of Roots and Twigs Photography and we had some amazing images shared both on Facebook and on Instagram.

Our featured artist for the theme {Contrast} is Congratulations to @hollynicoletimekeeper , your image is stunning.

Tori chose this image for the following reasons:

“As is usually the case, choosing the top submission was challenging! There were many wonderful entries, with a variety of interpretations for “Contrast,” just as I hoped to see. I ultimately chose Holly Nicole’s classic, beautifully-processed black and white image, using the full tonal range. The scene is further set off by contrasting textures in the clouds, water, tree line, and shore, while still allowing that precious child to be the focal point. Beautifully-done, Holly, and Congratulations!”

April 2018: Lines

The theme for the month of April is {Lines}.  Kim of Kim Sidwell Photography chose the theme.  Sadly Kim, has decided that she needed to back out of Share Six and we are very sorry to see her go.  We have enjoyed getting to know Kim over the years and definitely will miss her.  That said, we decided to keep her choice of theme.

Replacing Kim, we are delighted to share that Janet Douglas will be joining us.  Janet is a very talented artist who just amazes me with her use of vintage lens to create an incredible image.  You are definitely going to enjoy seeing more of Janet’s work.  To view her Instagram page click here.

Guest Interview: @blinckphotography

The colorful afghan image that graces our cover was submitted by @blinckphotography  Katherine of Cobert Photography chose this image because it was so colorful.  I caught up with Bérénice Linck to find out a little bit more about who she was.  To view Bérénice’s webpage click here.

 

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

I’m Berenice, I’m french but have lived in Philly for 20 years now. I live in center city and love raising my kids in this diverse and vibrant city. I started getting interested in photography about 10 years ago, when I got a nice point and shoot camera that also allowed me to shoot in manual. This is when I learned all about aperture, shutter speed, ISO, exposure just by trying, failing and trying again. I was more into street photography at the time and volunteered at two local non-profits to document their work days. I loved doing it and documentary photography is the core of what drives me to pick up my camera. Once my kids were born (I have a 7 year old daughter and 3 year old son), I transferred my passion for photography to them by using the same approach to capturing them as I did when I volunteered, as an observant photographer. I was a hobbyist until 2016 when I started taking pictures of friends and friends of friends and I officially opened my business in early 2017. It’s a side gig for now, I have a full time job, but I would love for it to become my full time profession at some point.

 

BlinckPhoto-Sharesix-1[20524]

A rare moment of peace between my kids. The next second they were fighting. I just love to capture moments when they naturally get along, few and far between.

 

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 never owner a DSLR. For years I shot with an olympus EM5, a micro 4/3 system. I have lots of back and neck issues and cannot carry around heavy gear. I borrowed a DSLR once and I knew it was just not for me. I took the EM5 through its paces, and it’s almost dead now but it was a trusty and neat camera to learn on. Last year I got a Fuji xt2 and love it. It took me a little time to get comfortable with it but the more I use it the more I like it, it’s become an extension of my hand. I mostly shoot with the 23 1.4 lens (I mostly shoot primes), and also the 50 2.0 when I’m outside.

I can’t think of a lens I really wish I had, I have a 35 0.95 lens, it’s manual and amazing, I just wish it had autofocus. I can’t use it for client work because I can’t always nail the focus but when I do, it’s magical. So I just wish for fuji to make the long rumored 33 1.0 lens. Also if money was no object I would get the 16 1.4. I love wide angle, even for portraits.

 

BlinckPhoto-Sharesix-3[20526]

Snow lashes. I love my daughter’s eyelashes, it’s the first thing I noticed about her when she was born, and when you add snow to them, they are magical (almost).

 

What makes you pick up the camera when you don’t feel like it?

Honestly, if I don’t feel like picking up my camera I just don’t. I only shoot when I feel like it. And I almost always feel like shooting.

 

BlinckPhoto-Sharesix-4[20527]

A random street moment. One of my fav pictures ever, I love the interaction between the kids and the cat.

 

Film or digital? Black and white or color? Lifestyle or traditional?

Digital, Color in general but I love b&w more and more. I really love contrast, deep colors and deep dark shadows. Definitely more lifestyle/documentary, although I’ve taken a liking to classic portraits lately, but I try to incorporate them into documentary sessions.

 

BlinckPhoto-Sharesix-6[20529]

My daughter is a huge harry potter fan. She was dressed has Hermione on Halloween and we did a little photoshoot where I was Voldemort and she was trying to get rid of me. It was a collaboration between us and it was great to create something together. It was setup, not what I usually do, but I love how it turned out.

 

What personal projects are you working?

I did a 52 week project in 2016, one picture a week following a theme and a Facebook group. It was really hard but a wonderful learning experience. I tried another one in 2017 but gave up early on, I just wasn’t into it anymore. This year, I started a 365 project on January 1st. I was sure I would drop out after a few weeks. But after a month, I was still doing it, taking a picture each day and posting it the same day. I find this easier than a 52 week project because I have no theme, I just take what inspires me. I’ve let go of perfection, it doesn’t have to always be a print worthy picture, only representative of the day. I’m on day 88 today! I’ve learned through this process that there’s always something to photograph, even in bad light.

 

BlinckPhoto-Sharesix-7[20530]

My husband scolding my son for trying to run into the street while my daughter was all smiles that she got to sit in the stroller. I love opposites in pictures, and juxtapositions so this one is perfect for that. And I love the story it tells. It’s very real.

 

Most important thing she learned about editing.

I shoot raw and edit in Lightroom only. I don’t spend a lot of time editing (maybe 1-2 minutes max on a picture if that, sometimes a little more if cloning needs to be done). The best advice that’s impacted me the most is “embrace the shadows”. You often think that you need lots of light for photography, but you just need a pocket of light somewhere. Pictures don’t have to be bright, and dark shadows can really make a picture stand out.

 

BlinckPhoto-Sharesix-8[20531]

My son reading his book of the moment. I think this is a great illustration of embracing the shadows.

 

Thank you Bérénice for sharing your stunning work with us.  You can view Bérénice’s instagram page by clicking here.

We have a few more days for you to submit your {Contrast} 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: February 2018: Color

This month we had 211 tags on Instagram for the theme {Color}.  Facebook was a little busier but nothing like the past.  I wish we could see a lot more images there.  Katherine of Cobert Photography chose the theme and we had some awesome posts.

Katherine chose the following image to be featured and interviewed.  The reason she chose it were because:

“I love the color in the afghan, and the fact that the child is hanging over the couch. I can just imagine this child has a colorful personality.”

Guest Interview: @staciezphotography

Lynne of Lynne Grant Photography chose the theme {Winter Light} and we were all stunned by Stacie’s amazing photograph.  So I took a bit of time to catch up with Stacie and learn a little bit more about her.  You can find Stacie on Instagram at @staciezphotography

Tell us a bit about yourself? 

I’m a boy mom to three (ages 12, 8, 7), been married for 14 years, and I also have taught full time as a third grade teacher for 14 years. 

 

Are you a hobbyist or a pro?

I have been shooting professional sessions since 2015. My client work is family lifestyle and senior sessions.  

 

sz-the-daily-brother-hunting-documentary-photography[19866]

“Brother Hunting” this image explains my household…when you have three boys someone is always hunting or fighting with a brother.  I used a copper ring for the flare.

Tell us a bit about your photography gear. 

I have two Nikon d750 bodies.  Then I have a 70-200mm f2.8 zoom, a 35mm f1.4, and a 45mm f2.8 tilt shift- all Nikkor lenses. 

 

What is the lens do you not have but you desire to have the most? 

OH so many of them!!! For my personal work I would love to have a wider lens like the 24mm or 24mm tilt shift.  My 45mm tilt is so fun to get creative with so I know I would love the 24mm tilt shift.  For my client work I could probably shoot all my family sessions with a 24-70mm zoom so that would be an awesome lens to have.    

 

staciezphotography-love-his-giggles[19867]

“Love His Giggles” I love to shoot REAL portraits of my boys 

What makes you pick up the camera when you don’t feel like it? 

LIGHT! I’m always drawn to low light or high contrast settings.  A stream of golden light running through my house always inspires me.  I also can’t resist shooting my boys playing outside and being boys!  I also think it’s really helpful to set personal project goals for yourself and continually work toward those. 

 

staciezphotography-lakehouse-swing[19868]

“Lake House Swing”  this is a special spot for our family and a regular series I try to shoot each time we visit my parent’s lakehouse.  That reflection is from a plain old patio table! 

Film or digital?

Definitely digital! Way back in high school I learned photography basics and shot with a Cannon AE1. The dark room process is too tedious and time consuming.  

 

Black and white or color?

My heart always goes to color. 

 

Lifestyle or traditional? 

My personal work is documentary, and my client work is mainly lifestyle. 

staciezphotography-chalk-with-my-crazies[19869]

“Chalk with my Crazies” part of my P52 from last summer – this image reminds me why I love personal projects and how much fun we had together that afternoon!

What personal projects are you working? 

I have successfully completed two P365s – been there done that…wouldn’t do one again. Don’t get me wrong, I love the 365 process, there’s just something magical about the reflection & growth but they are so time consuming. The last two years I have committed to doing P52 self portrait series to ensure (yes sometimes even force myself) to get in the frame with my littles (who aren’t very little anymore).  As far as daily shooting, I just try to let the light lead & inspire me. 

 

staciezphotography-birthday-breakfast-burrito[19870]

“Birthday Breakfast Burrito” this is of my Christmas birthday boy- we do a birthday breakfast for him each year so this shot has became a double exposure (Christmas light) tradition

Most important thing they learned about editing. 

Definitely to nail your image in camera!  Have a vision of your final image when you shoot it.  For example, if you want moody you can underexpose your image properly & save yourself time editing.  I’ve also learned that editing takes a lot of practice which is why 365s are awesome!  Currently I only edit with LR and I love the speed of my workflow.  Though, someday I have goals to learn certain aspects of PS with the goal of kicking an image over to add some magic.  For now though, I have to find ways to shoot my magic in camera.  My favorite ways to do this are making the most of a reflection, using a prism, copper ring, or using in-camera double exposure.  

 

cropped-img_851519779.jpg

“Basketball in the Clouds” I used a prism under my lens for this shot, those clouds were just epic! God make the most beautiful backgrounds! 

 

Thank you Stacie for sharing your stunning work with us.  You can view Stacie’s instagram page by clicking here.

We have about 2 more days for you to submit your {Color} 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: January 2018: Winter Light

Lynne Grant chose the theme Winter Light for the month of January.  Lynne knows well what winter light looks like in the cold of Scotland.  Take some time to check out her Facebook page, Lynne Grant Photography.

It seems like Facebook did something strange and I am still not sure whether it has been fixed but the sharing on Facebook has been quite once again.  Instagram had 246 posts shared on the theme.

Lynne chose an image submitted by @staciezphotography and she had this to say about Stacie’s image:

“This image stopped me in my tracks, wow what’s not to love about it. I adore the silhouette, but most of all that gorgeous dream-like light and stunning array of colours in the evening sky. Beautifully done.”

 

Congratulations Stacie, your image will be featured as the banner to the Facebook page as well as the webpage.

Guest Interview: @bethanygracephotos

For the {Wonderland} theme @bethanygracephotos was selected as our featured artist, and I connected with Bethany so that I could learn more about her and her art.  I hope you take the time to learn more about her as well.

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

Hi! I’m Bethany. I live at the Jersey Shore, I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and I am a homeschooling/hippie-hearted mama to three:  Biggest (15), Middle Man (10), and Littlest (5).   I’ve been a hobbyist for 5 years, but, last summer, I decided to take the plunge into being a Pro.  Sharing my work with other mamas is such a dream!   I’m very passionate about preserving real moments, so future generations can be transported… and share family moments from before their time.

BethanyShareSix1of6 (1 of 1)

(Cinderella’s Castle) :  Twirling in front of Cinderella’s castle, at the Magic Kingdom, in Disney World! What could be a better childhood memory?  #1 Tip for shooting in Disney: Book the earliest in-park breakfast reservation! You will get inside the park before it opens, and you can grab shots (like this one), with very little to no people around. 🙂

 

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

I shoot with Canon 6D, and my 2 Two (beloved) Sigma Art Series lenses: 35mm F/1.4 and 85mm F/1.4.  The lens I want most is the Sigma Art Series 14mm F/1.8

BethanyShareSix2 (1 of 1)

(First Snow Day) :  It was our first snow day of our current Winter season! Littlest actually shot this photo….if you look closely, you will see she is holding my camera remote.  Although my photos are usually shot in the moment, and not acted….I did ask my daughter to reenact her first reaction to the snow.  She loved this style of shooting, because SHE was in control.  Try it with your littles….it shakes things up a bit.  🙂

 

How did your journey to be a photographer happen?

I have loved photography all my life! I began to get into Iphonography in 2012; then, in 2013, I was given an old entry level Digital DSLR (Canon Rebel T3).  That was when my major love affair (with photography) began! Watching myself grow and see everything in a new light (figuratively and literally) is the most beautiful experience! I can’t wait to see what the next 5 years have in store for me ❤

BethanyShareSix3 (1 of 1)

(Middle Man’s Alaska Diamond Willow) :  We were hiking along, one day, and I noticed middle man in this gorgeous light. This light and my focus (on the walking stick) tells the story of my son’s magical walking stick.  Such a beautiful memory for him!

 

Who inspires you?

Anyone and everyone who has the courage to call themselves a Photographer and put themselves out there.  Anyone and everyone who believes in themselves.  Anyone and everyone who lifts up their fellow humans, *believing in anyone and everyone*!!

BethanyShareSix4 (1 of 1)

(Seeing Similarities before Differences} :   I love this photo, because it tells a beautiful story and reminds all that, through understanding, people will be able to see their similarities before differences.

 

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

“Just keep swimming” ❤  There will be times you feel ready to throw in the towel…and there will be times you feel on top of the world! Let those latter moments drive you!

Ride the wave of creativity: Succumb to the urges to take photography breaks and unwind.  Succumb to the urges to pick up your camera and create.  Succumb to the urges to read, learn, feed your knowledge.

This is the platform you need for growth.  So, relax and ride that wave, my friends.

BethanyShareSix5 (1 of 1)

The light here is my absolute favorite!  It happens fairly often in Jersey, and I love how the sun is filtered just enough to expose for both gorgeous sky and subjects.    I shot this right after binge watching Stranger Things.  I love how the shadows and tones remind me of the Upside Down.   (Never forget, we find inspiration EVERYWHERE! Be open to always being inspired)

 

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

When you see the light….I mean REALLY see the light…nothing will ever be the same again.  That is the game changer…that is the beginning to more beauty than I ever could have imagined.

BethanyShareSix6 (1 of 1)

(Life through the eyes of an INFP and all children, alike) :  This was the last game of “chase the waves” of the season, for my Littles.  This can be such a sad moment, for us year-round shore residents.  Yet, it wasn’t for my Littles and I.  It was the beginning of something beautiful!!  I am always grateful for my personality type! It brings my children and I closer.  This image reminds me of that story.

 

Thank you Bethany for sharing your beautiful work with us.  You can view Bethany’s instagram page by clicking here.

We have about 10 more days for you to submit your {Winter Light} 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: December 2017: Wonderland

December is always a time of awe for me and Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography chose the theme {Wonderland}  What a perfect fit.

Facebook was again very quiet this month, and we do hope to see a lot of images in the current theme.  Instagram, however, was over the top.  We had a explosion of images.  So this month we are going to highlight more Instagram images.

The image that Kathy chose was submitted by Bethany Grace Photos and Kathy shared her thoughts on why she chose this photo:

This image truly captures the chosen theme, Wonderland. The wonder, awe, and magic of the holidays is something I always loved when growing up and now get to experience with my kids! I love her expression of excitement and joy looking at the carefully held bell. The bokeh in the background is beautiful. Absolutely love it!

Congratulations, your image will be featured as the banner to the facebook page as well as the webpage.
