What’s this ‘beyond snapshots’ thing about you ask?
Got yourself a fancy camera, but sometimes feel like you actually bought a REALLY expensive point and shoot because you just use it on auto?
Rachel gets so many emails and comments asking how she takes such great photos of her own kids on a consistent basis and Peta gets asked all the time how she gets such amazing colors and light in every shot. We both get asked how we connect with children and come up with our ideas. We are not magicians and we don’t have tricks up our sleeves that regular people can’t do on their own. We want to show people what we do in a way that will prove they can do it themselves. Rachel shoots Nikon and Peta shoots Canon. Rachel is on PC and Peta is Mac. Rachel has what on some days feels like 29 children and Peta has none. Rachel has been shooting for years (and years and years) and Peta is newer to the scene . We believe our differences are what make us work so well as a team, but the one thing that is most important here we have in common, we love what we do. We are ready to answer the one question we both get asked most often, ”How do I go beyond snapshots and take my camera off auto?” Since we are both self taught, we have gone through the often disappointing and occasionally humorous learning process of trial and error. We feel like we can save a lot of people the same trip or at least shorten the trip and make it a bit more beautiful.
