Here at Fluttering Shutter Photography, I think it's so important that we have photographs of our loved ones. Of course I encourage hiring a professional (even if it's only on occasion), but no one can have a professional photographer follow them around 24/7 to document their lives. Even us professionals don't document every moment and we have to hire other photographers to take pictures of our families, too!
I'm calling the series "Momtographer Mondays" but it's not only for Moms. It's for anyone who wants to take better pictures without having to invest in a large amount of education. Each blog will be pretty short and basic. I wanted to create this blog because I used to be a "momtographer", which only means a Mom who loves to take pictures of their children/surroundings. I started with taking pictures with my cellphone and moved up to a Canon Rebel t3i. Now I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark ii, with a variety of lenses. HOWEVER, I got some great shots with my cellphone and some great shots with my Rebel. The camera matters SO much less than the knowledge behind it.
Regardless of the type of camera you have, I want you to be able to take better pictures and have a better understanding of how photography works. Agan, great photographs do not happen because of the camera alone. Having a great camera certainly helps, but the knowledge that goes into the art of photography itself is what can make the difference between an image that will sit on your cellphone forever and the image that will be printed and hung up in your home.
I want to help you understand things like angles, light and how to capture moments (not force them). Make sure to check out my new posts every Monday!
