My mentoring session with Silvia was an absolute blast!
Silvia is originally from Slovakia and now lives in Ruskin, FL [which is an hour away from me!]. It made me feel special that she was willing to drive an hour to meet with me! When she got there, she said Hello with the sweetest accent that I absolutely adore! Then we grabbed a croissant and some tea and got to know each other for a bit.
She told me about the things she has learned in photography since she has started. She already has a good handle on her settings but wanted to know how to achieve a blurry background. We shot around for a while as it rained outside. After that we talked about how to photograph newborns [which is something she is most interested in!] Once we talked through that, we went over a bunch of editing tips in Lightroom! We scrolled through pictures she’s taken and talked about what settings could improve that specific photo and how to cleanly edit it!
Then we took head-shots! It was hilarious because I had to keep laughing in a funny voice to make her smile! Friends, Silvia has a beautiful smile!! You will see in some of my favorites from the session! 🙂 Silvia, I had a great time getting to know you and I know you will just keep improving! I love the shots you took of me as well!
Silvia does not have a fan page quite yet but it working on one, once she has one, I will link the blog to it so you guys can follow her! I hope you enjoy these photos!
