INTRODUCING: Kellyn Wilson Photography
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE BUSINESS?
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THIS FIRST PICTURE?
This photo was one of the first family sessions I did after I opened my business. I remember looking at their session and being very proud of what I had accomplished! The session went great, and the family left very happy!
NOW THAT YOU ARE MORE EXPERIENCED, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS FIRST PICTURE, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS WRONG WITH IT?
Now, looking at this photo, I just want to reach out to this family and redo the whole session! The lighting is awful! There are shadows all over the place! The composition is off. There is really no connection, and looks very “staged.”
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THIS SECOND PICTURE?
All the photos in this session turned out amazing, but this is one of my favorites! It tells a story, and is all about connection! As a Lifestyle Portrait Photographer, I want my photos to be able to tell a story about the day. I do capture the posed photos of everyone looking at the camera, but most of my work is capturing the laughter, emotion, and connection of the day.
WHAT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS THAT CONTRIBUTED TO YOUR GROWTH AS A PHOTOGRAPHER?
Along with taking photo classes, both online and in school, one of my biggest things that contributed to my growth was practice, practice, practice! I would carry my camera every where I went, and still do!
Thank you for sharing, Kellyn! Beautiful improvement.
