BLOG + VLOG of AUTUMN THEODORE PHOTOGRAPHY
Workshop dates announced for 2018!
I'm covering two topics this year:
You've had a smartphone for a while. It seems like others are taking amazing photos from their phone. What are you missing? As surprising as it may be, I have a long list of things you can do to get better photos. We will go over lots of tips and tricks that will help you take better smartphone photos, especially for social media!
Did you spend a few hundred dollars on a camera you don't know how to use because the settings are overwhelming? Don't worry - I can help! We will go over basic settings, the exposure triangle (aperture, shutter speed, ISO), and any questions you have!
How to hold your spot at the workshop:
Hope to see you soon!
It is a photographer's job to make photos that clients like...but clients must take partial responsibility, too. To like the images, they must love themselves.
I want this to be an open conversation because I know it's a sensitive topic. If you'd like to talk more, always feel free to comment below or reach out to me directly.
I opened a Print + Digital Shop!
I'm honored any time someone mentions that they saw one of my photos, and love it so much that they want to purchase a print or a canvas.
To make it easier, I've built a website where I've loaded the most commonly requested images for prints, canvases, and even digital download. Images of Columbus, Cleveland, Hocking Hills, Asheville, and the Total Solar Eclipse start at $25.
Below are some highlights of the images that have been loaded to the site.
I'll continue adding new images as I take more, but I'm also very interested in the type of images you'd like to see! Feel free to comment below. :)
Do I enjoy what I do, and want to do more of it?
Yes. Easy question. Next?
I'm really organized...but like...enough?!
I had extra time during all of 2017. Did I like it? Yep. Did I need more work? Nope. Did I want more work? Always. So if I had tons of extra time in a year that I comfortably supported myself, why not double it during year two and see how it goes? Here are the extra things I had to consider:
Do I think I'll be too "busy?"
NO. In "Tools of Titans" by Tim Ferriss, he talks about being "busy." And I love him for it.
"Every time people contact me, they say, 'Look, I know you must be incredibly busy...' and I always think, 'No, I'm not.' Because I'm in control of my time. I'm on top of it. 'Busy,' to me, seems to imply 'out of control.' Like, 'Oh my God, I'm so busy. I don't have any time for this shit!' To me, that sounds like a person who's got no control over their life."
I'll update you on how my doubled business goes a year from now. :)
Writing and vlogging to entertain, educate, expose, and encourage.
