Before/After: Author Photo Self-Edit

One of the priceless things I’ve learned with editing my own images is to do as much as possible pre-shoot to minimize post-edit work. For example, I love this blouse but it’s always wrinkled. I can iron it, stream it – for this shoot, I actually dampened it a bit and put it in the dryer.

Gear Up & Upskill

More than two years after the image was taken my skills caught up to my vision, as did technology. It also helped when I realized I don’t have to follow any rules, only my imagination. I can create whatever I want and present it in whatever way pleases me.

Funerals: Pre and Post Covid19

I traveled with my camera and captured some great candid shots, family groupings and intimate portraits. The sisters also brought along photos of their gatherings through the years. I’ve photographed a few funerals and gatherings in honor of loved ones over the years. As morbid as the subject may sound, the images are full of joy and love.

Branching out into RE Video

In this post, I’m sharing two different edits of this first real estate video job. Many versions of the video were created as I learned the software. Each version taught me something new about how I can improve on the next shoot, how to shoot to avoid certain editing needs, how to edit to improve my footage and even how to coach for voice over recordings.

MLK Day Celebration

MLK Day March & Celebration on Monday, January 21 was my second event shoot in Tucson. My focus for the day was the celebration (speakers) in Reid Park. As one of several freelance photographers covering the event, it felt like quite a collective and communal event.

Lunar Eclipse – January 20-21, 2019

We’ve been given our own light sources and if we contemplate long enough with adequate tools, we can see more and more light and experience more and more of life. 

Below are images taken from my backyard of the super blood moon lunar eclipse on the evening of January 20, 2019 in Marana, AZ (southwest USA).

Test Shoot: Rhonda, “Delete the rest.”

Her response to her image gallery was, “Thanks for all your hard work! I see sickness in most of my photos…. I choose the ones I like…. I ask that you delete the rest.” I think her images and her comments add a great deal to the larger conversation of Black Womanhood in America. How we internalize our grief and disappointment. How they solidify and weigh us down in a deep abyss of cyclical suffering. How we can become incapable of seeing pass that one thing (situation, heartbreak, betrayal) that first knocked us down.
