I’m going to have to warn you. If you have a teenage daughter, chances are she might squeal as she reads this post over your shoulder.
Today’s featured post is not about a unique look in her imagery or a distinct post-processing that her portraits possess. This feature is about applauding an artist’s knowledge in a specific industry and her capitalizing on it. Based in the heart of Hollywood, she somehow has a way of knowing what little cutie has big star potential. She has been known for grabbing photoshoots with these potentials before they become teen heartthrobs for Disney, Nickelodeon, or even on the big screen. Meet Rena Durham, a children’s commercial and editorial photographer.
Figure out what it is that you LOVE to photograph and focus on that (and become really good at it) and only show what you want to shoot on your website. If you don’t enjoy doing weddings, don’t show wedding images on your website. Also, I think it is fine to look at other photographers work and ask yourself what is it about their work that you like but not try and copy them. Find your own styleYou don’t always have to fit in with the standard either. Just because everyone else seems to be doing it, doesn’t mean you have to to. Find what drives you and makes you feel excited and inspired and shoot that!
