Zack Arias on Creative Live

First of all, Creative Live is one of the best things on the internet that I have ever found! Someone linked it on a chat board I frequent for the Jasmine Star session a few weeks ago and I fell in love.

Anyway, onto Zack. He is a phenomenal teacher and in one day has seriously impacted my photography for the better. He gave a lot of good analogies for the technical aspects of photography. I especially liked when he compared the different levels of aperture to a water faucet -it makes so much more sense now! Zack makes a great point - your photography is your business, so how can you focus on the business aspect and hope that the photo's fall into place? You have to master your craft before trying to master the business aspect. A good photographer did not get to where they are by being good at business. Sure it helps, but you can't be a good photographer without knowing your camera and all the variables that go into making a good picture.

I can't wait to see what he will teach us tomorrow! Seriously, cancel the rest of your weekend, grab a notebook and check out Zack Arias at Creative Live!

About Me

My photo
Brandon & Shayna We met in church when I was 16 and he was 20. I had always liked him, but he was too old for me then. We both grew up, moved away for college and went through our relationships. Eventually, we both moved back home and reconnected in 2006. We got married on October 10, 2009 and welcomed our son, Camden Richard on October 28, 2010.
