Best advice that you’ve been given in your photography
Jasmine Star once posted a quote by Henri Cartier Bresson
“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst”.  When I doubt my work I
remind myself of this simple quote and tell myself that practice makes
perfect.  I already see improvements in my work from when I started my

What is your most used Photoshop (or Lightroom)
tool, plug-in, or action set etc.?:
I’ve purchased several actions in
the past but my favorite is my B&W preset in Lightroom and my color

If you and your
camera were invisible for one day, what would you shoot?:

interesting and cool.

during the getting ready photos and I didn’t have an extra card. I
FREAKED out.  Luckily, I had a 2nd shooter with me and was able to
delete some photos and switch around my settings while she continued
shooting. Lesson learned. Always have backups of everything!

split your pants or get injured all in efforts to capture that special
I haven’t split my pants yet but I did shoot a wedding 2 months
post knee surgery. It was a painful 9 hour day. Eek!

If you
were in a public area and everyone was skipping instead of walking,

I would stand there and photograph it first and
then i’d join the fun : )
