Retouching Session: Teaching in Milwaukee Pictures
I had a fantastic time this past weekend teaching a private retouching session with Tegan, who is a photographer, and retoucher at Kohl’s, and with Aaron who is a fashion and beauty photographer.
Before our 2 day session began (which you can read about here in case you’re interested in one: details), we went around Milwaukee for a day to see the city. Aaron and Tegan were two of the most humble people I have ever met. Both great in character and in talent! We immediately got along right away as if we’d known each other forever.
It had just snowed so aside from eating, we primarily spent the day at the amazing and beautiful Milwaukee art museum which is where most of my pictures are from. They had an amazing array of breweries in the city which we went to at night.
A great way to evolve your craft is to study art history (as I have when I was younger) and how the greats crafted each of their own pieces. Within each painting holds secrets that are free for the taking. You can literally see each layered brush stroke that combined to make the final piece. You can study that and see how they contoured and defined areas. Each artist has a completely different method that is apparent when looking at them in the utmost detail. That is the DNA of the painting, so to speak. You get to see their interpretation of light, the intricacies of skin, fabric, and texture detail. You see their soul come through.
You learn so much that you can apply to your own work. After all, the application is similar. Inspiration shouldn’t have limitations.
Here are some shots from the trip. You can see most of them in the gallery here:
It was the first time I had gotten to play and see snow to this extent (Yeah! Snow, woohoo!). So I felt like a kid all over again. As cold as it was, amidst great company and warm smiles around the city, it felt great.
This post comes from a Craigslist’s post in Seattle. I love the last line. Really?
Nope, she’s not going to be a bridezilla whatsoever.
WHY is finding an amazing wedding photographer so difficult? :/
I am a Bride who is getting married this summer and have yet to find a decently priced, exceptional, amazingly talented, fun photographer.
WHY because the word “WEDDING” is involved photographers think they can change you $ 3,000.00 for wedding photos? Oh, because no bride is going to go without so they are going to pay it, because they HAVE to. They are ripping people off for all they have! Why when you want to get married it costs you AT LEAST 15 grand after all is said-and-done? Its such CRAP!! I love all you $ 3,000.00 photographers out there but i think your prices are WACK. All your doing is hanging out at a wedding taking tons of photos and editing them.. and thats owrth 3 GRAND!!! You’re making so much money its crazy. I just wish people would be more realistic. I mean the “average” persons salary for 1 freaking month is somewhere around 3 grand. (Thats making 19$ an hour) So you’re going to take someones WHOLE MONTH paycheck for one flippen day of photos? Just because you CAN!!?????? So that maybe they will not be able to feed themselves or pay any other bills they have, right? It makes me SICK!
I know im speaking for more than just myself right now. Alot of brides out there think the same thing. & I bet all you fancy photographers wont even read this. oh-well.
Maybe there are cheaper photographers that will read this and LOVE to take my photos :)
