Q & A Part I
Ask away! I am here to share everything. If there is anything that you want to know before we shoot, this is the time to ask it.

Mini photo shoot
You decide in advance what you are interested in shooting – family, children, models, brides, couples etc. I will arrange the shoot and we will shoot it together. I will shoot and explain how I am shooting, my settings, and why I am shooting that way. We will explore different lighting situations and my approach to these lighting challenges. This is a great time to ask questions and you have the time to troubleshoot and learn – real-time!

Post process
We will go through some of the images from our shoot and I will show you my approach to post processing as well as workflow.

Final Q & A
This is your time to ask about anything that hasn’t been answered throughout the day!

General Questions + Answers

Some of my photos are appearing very green when viewed on an iphone. Why?

Super frustrating, I’ve been there. Don’t worry, it’s just the color profile and it is easy to fix. If you don’t care why it’s happening, skip to the numbered steps below. If you want to know the reason some of your images look horrible, it is because the color profile is uncategorized instead of sRGB. Even though my camera is set to sRGB, I was running into this problem. You can quickly convert the profile in Photoshop which will ensure that your photos are beautiful even on the iPhone!

1. Double check that the color space in your camera is set to sRGB.
On nikon cameras, go to menu -> shooting menu -> color space and set to sRGB.

2.Open your image in Photoshop and select Convert to Profile.
Menu -> Edit -> Convert to Profile

In the Destination Space category, set the Profile to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and click “ok”

This should take care of the ugly green tint that you were seeing on your iPhone.
