From a recent article on advice for photographers:

“Master ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Shoot everyday. Study your results (including what shutter speed, ISO and aperture settings you used for your favorite shots).

“Anytime you feel that your equipment is inadequate, it just means you need to master the basics better. The master photographers from 50-100 years ago didn’t have anything as fancy as you are holding in your hot little paws, so claiming inadequate equipment isn’t a good excuse. Work on your skills.

“Composition is everything. Study the master painters (Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, etc) for inspiration in composition. Start to see things as a painter.

“Hit us over the head with your subject. Make it obvious what we are supposed to be seeing. Remove the clutter.” -Karen Rader

Good advice.

David Ferraro first picked up a camera in 1958 when his parents gave him a Kodak Brownie for his eighth birthday. Thus began a lifelong passion for photography and image making. He began his media career as a news photographer, and transitioned into video in the seventies. Over the last forty years, he built a career creating images and telling stories. David learned early on that a producer-director is first and foremost an interpreter, telling a story through ideas and images. That what Impact Photography, one of the premier wedding photographers in Hampton Roads, does: tells your story through carefully crafted images. Let David and Impact Photography interpret your event, create your portrait, and tell your story.
