I think we have all been asked what type of camera we have. I don’t mind this question at all. However, when someone says it takes nice pictures I struggle to find the right words to explain that I shoot on manual mode which is why my pictures look the way they do. Last summer, Erin wrote a post that spread like wild fire in the photography community. I love how she compares your oven to your camera. You wouldn’t tell someone their oven made yummy cookies :O)
She does an amazing job of showing how someone who does not know how to use a camera can not get the same results as someone who does. I love how she show cases how even after a shoot a photographer’s work is not done. This is a great post to read if you are wondering why you would want to pay the extra money for a custom photographer when you could just ask your neighbor to take pictures for you. There is definitely a difference! Erin makes a great point when she says photographers “live, eat, and breathe photography”! I know this is true for me.
While you are on her blog be sure to check out some more of her beautiful photography! If you are in the Delaware area consider hiring Erin for your next session!!
