I did a small maternity shoot a week ago and am really happy with how the photos turned out. I’m still learning the art of post processing and my own style, so be kind. However, I really like the light and she looked beautiful. Here are just a few of the shots I took.
Thanks for being my muse Abbie!
Happy March Everyone! March is very busy for us, so I’m sure I’ll have lots to share.
I’m back with another Instagram installment! I’m still loving this app (and don’t foresee the love affair ending anytime soon) and using it almost every day. Here is what we’ve been up to in Instagrams.
These are just a few of my favorites from January and February.
If you would like to follow me on Instagram you can find me under tashiadoyle.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back anytime!
When I was in college, I did a ton of design work using InDesign, but we rarely used Photoshop. And since college, I use the free version of Photoshop called Gimp to do all of my design work. It didn’t take me long to figure that out, so I’m hoping that Photoshop comes naturally. So far it’s going pretty well.
I’m only two weeks into the class, but I’ve already learned a lot. I’m in the process of figuring out my style. I’ve noticed that the instructor likes her photos much warmer than I prefer mine, so I’m learning how to post process with the look I’m the most drawn to. It’s fun and I love seeing the after photos. However, I plan on being a strictly natural light photographer and don’t really plan to do extensive post processing like some photographers do. I would rather keep my photos as close to the originals as possible so that they still feel like my photos and not overdone.
I love taking classes and learning new things. I look forward to the day that post processing comes easily and I can plow through my photos without it taking forever! Soon. Very soon. Until then, I’ll keep practicing! I just keep telling myself that I’m one step closer to starting my business, which is so exciting and terrifying at the same time!
It sure is hard to get much done when I have two kids that interrupt every five minutes…
Focus Tashia. It’s all about focus.
Oh, on a sidenote, if you are ever interested in checking out the different classes offered at Big Picture Classes, I highly recommend it. I’ve had really great experiences so far!
I’m totally obsessed with Instagram. But, really, who isn’t?! It’s where I share most of my photos on a regular basis. I rarely share photos on FB and have never posted one to twitter; although that may change if things work out with my new blog. Anyway, I digress, my whole point was to share some of my favorite Instagram photos from the past few months. I plan on adding my feed to the sidebar eventually, but until that happens I’ll post them!
I didn’t always like the concept of a mini book. I thought they would be hard to store on display because and I wasn’t sure how they would hold up over time due to the fact that they don’t typically have page protectors and are not usually housed in binders. However, after seeing Elise Cripe’s summer mini book, I decided to give it a try. I am really happy with the finished project and wanted to share it with you.
So here is the mini album that I put together to document our trip to Big Sur this past summer. It was my first time making a mini book ever, so I wasn’t really sure where to start, but I quickly got in a groove and it turned out to be one of my favorites. I don’t think it’s something I will do often, but I enjoyed putting it together and will definitely make more in the future.
All the photographs were taken with my Nikon D3100with just the standard lens or with my iPhone.
I still have a few small finishing touches I need to add, but it’s pretty much done. Love it!
