Gary Walters replied to Matt Sciba's discussion RAW, huh! What is it good for?
"The best way I can describe why to shoot raw is this. Lets say you are in a cake decorating contest and will be sculpting the frosting into your vision of the cake. The Raw version method would allow you to have a 3 inch coating of frosting all…"

Profile Information

About Me and My Photography Experience:
I live in Peoria Illinois and about 35 years ago I was a cop and the CSI. That was my first introduction to photography. I fell in love with it and quit the dept 2 years later and just started shooting and learning. Had a studio at 1347 S. Michigan in Chicago for a couple years then came back to Peoria and started doing many international assignments. Now I'm trying to slow down but never learned how to do that part well.
My Photography Equipment:
Cannon, Mac.

Hello,

I come to Peoria from time to time to do photo shoots and just to visit my sis and her family. I am friends with Pam Cooley and often check out her work and she helps me scout locations from time to time. Hope you would not mind to help me out if I ever need some suggestions!

Thanks!

Sherie

Haha, Gary, that is so funny! Well ... maybe funny isn't the right word ... I know that it's so awkward at first to try to figure out what to do, but you just do it and it works somehow. I just did my very first wedding on Sunday (New Years Day) and now I'm editing the 2000 photos I took. Oy vay! But you know what? I feel like it worked out okay .... there is only one shot that I wish I would have gotten that I didn't (the picture of their hands with their wedding rings) but I learned SO MUCH! I'll be adding just a few to my page shortly and will let you know so that you can check them out. I just looked at your pictures of Scott & Kelly's wedding ... wow! Phenomenal!!

Haha, you're right Gary, photographing babies is a bit of a challenge. Gracie was so sweet. She was a bit grumpy in the beginning (I think I uploaded the one of her crying) but then everything settled down.

Thanks so much for the advice about plain colored blankets. I'm making notes about each shoot and about what I did right and what could be improved upon. This is one thing that I will definitely make a note of. I live close enough to this friend that I can go do additional shoots and I think I'll try again with her naked bottom and we'll set her on white blankets. Her home is SUPER dark and there were limited places to take pictures, but all in all, it turned out well, I think. The blanket and hat, by the way, were gifts to the baby which is why Mom wanted to use them, however .... we could have alternated and mixed it up by using other blankets as well and as I said, I appreciate your feedback. It means the world to me.

She did make one of the photos her facebook profile page today which was huge to me!!

So there was this one case where the camera completely wigged out and took super strange pictures ... completely white and completely black and there was one where the top was in focus but the bottom half of the picture was black. It was strange. I adjusted my shutter speed thinking maybe something happened there, but no luck, so I broke a major rule ... I put it in "automatic" and took one shot and then we went outside to do the rest of the shoot and I put it back on AV mode and it worked just fine. It was quite alarming.

Thanks so much! Again, I am so grateful for constructive feedback ... telling me what I did right AND what can be improved upon.

This is the most fun I've had in a very long time!!

Warmly, Janna

Hi Gary! I have been doing photography for a little over a year and am really trying to get more experience with weddings. I see on your portfolio that you photograph weddings and I would love to be a second shooter if possible. I am back in the Peoria area quite a bit because my family lives in Monmouth. Check out my portfolio and let me know if you are interested! www.aprilkitchin.com
