help me get to know your photography goals
Make and model of your camera as well as lenses:
What is the number one thing you want to take from this mentoring session?
What excites about photography?
At this point in your photography journey, you would consider yourself a(n) ____________ photographer.
When it comes to shooting with your DSLR:
You keep your camera set to "auto"
You know a little about shutter speed, ISO, and aperture but are still learning
You understand the exposure triangle completely!
What motivates you to pick up your camera?
Documenting an important event, person, or moment in time.
Your creative juices are flowing and you want to capture everything you can!
Earning an income from it.
The biggest challenge you face while taking photographs is:
check up to four boxes
The technical quality is lacking
You are just not feeling inspired to create
Your environment is redundant/ not exciting, so you feel your images reflect that
You can't keep your kids in place long enough to get a good expression from them let alone a sharp image
You have a hard time capturing genuine connection
Your compositions fall flat
You feel your images lack a "voice" or deeper meaning
Your biggest challenge when working with light is:
check up to two boxes
Exposure - you struggle to get the brightness of your photos just right
Finding the light and knowing where to place your subjects
Producing good photos in low light or other challenging lighting situations
Nothing! I have a great grasp of light and exposure
You just shot a set of photos. What program do you use to post-process them?
Whatever free photo program my computer came with
Other (or I do not process my photos)
When it comes to processing, you...
check all that apply
have a lot to learn
are overwhelmed by all the options
are somewhat comfortable with the tools but still feel frustrated by your result
feel totally comfortable and creatively empowered
When people look at your photos, what would you hope for them to say?
"This is perfection! You obviously have your photo technical skills down!"
"You captured that moment beautifully; I almost feel like I was there!"
"You truly captured the essence/emotion of the subject(s)"
As a photographer, your biggest challege right now is:
To present your subject/scene as beautifully as envisioned in your head
To anticipate, produce, or capture the subject at the "perfect" moment
To create imagery that portrays your voice/style as an artist
To take the next step in creating a photography business
