First photography experience

Last night I joined Radley from Artiem photography his friend Dave and Naomi also of the studio at the Kafe Beach Bash. I had my first experience as a photographers assitant and as a candid shooter at an event. I have to say I SUCK as a candid shooter. I just don't have the confidence wtih the camera yet to get in peoples faces. I hear it comes with time and even the seasoned photographers have a a hard time with this one. I had a really good time and got to play with a really neat camera. All in all I learned a lot and had a ton of laughs (these guys are so much fun to work with) and I can't wait until my next job!

Fun! Wish I could have gone. Good luck with the photography, there is a huge learning curve I hear.

you just need to learn to "tap Dance" a bit...that, and never let them see you sweat! Half the battle is learning to have fun with the camera in hand. The rest comes with experience - which you will get if we didn't scare ya off last night.
