I was raised in Kentucky. However I moved away after high school to spend the next 14 years in Colorado while serving in the military as a bomb disposal technician and then going into contracting work. Life events have brought me back to Kentucky in the Laurel/Whitley County area, looking forward to creating a new start in an old place.
I started photography as a therapeutic hobby, and quickly fell in love with it. There is something about being able to look at every day things from a slightly different perspective that makes many of the world's troubles melt away.
I wanted to share my love for finding beauty in the everyday and began sharing photos with, and then taking photographs for some friends and family. I want to continue spreading the joy I get from photography with anyone else that will slow down their own lives even for just a few minutes, for photos that will last a life time.
Phones have came a long way theres no doubt! The difference comes down to the sensor size and the limitations on the phones hardware/software. A modern DSLR or Mirrorless camera can capture very high levels of detail in different light settings, as well as the focal lengths and aperture can create beautiful natural bokeh affects in photographs.
After a photography session, the work doesn't stop for the photographer. Very rarely are photos display and frame ready straight from the camera. Most photos will require at least some level of color corrections, exposure correction, contrast, softening or sharpening to help capture that perfect shot. The additional costs go towards the time spent editing photos as well as the cost for the photo editing software. See the photo below for an example.
Again, very rarely is the perfect photo captured straight from the camera, let alone the first shot. Each different pose, however slight, will have multiple shots taken. This helps to remove the effects of slight shakes, out of focus subjects, missing a sparkle in the eye, or the dreaded blinking mid-picture. Depending on the background as well, there may be multiple shots with different apertures to either increase or decrease the bokeh affect. Bokeh is the effect you see in photographs when the background fades away into a blur drawing focus on the subject.
As mentioned in the Commonly Asked Questions About Photography, very rarely do photos comes from the camera frame ready. Nearly all photos require some degree of touch-up, potentially more or less depending on the style to draw focus to the subject
