Semester Busy-ness

For one, I'd like to apologize for becoming severely behind on a lot of my photos and keeping up to date with the blog, my website, and the Facebook page.  This semester has been so much busier than I had expected and I completely did not have the time!

One thing, is that I am very excited about next semester and the future.  I am taking this Winter Break to not only complete the development of my brand, but the marketing aspects of it as well.  I really believe that 2014 is going to be the year of really digging into making J. Cameron Photography boom.  I am really excited as I will be holding off working after graduation, so that I can devote the extra time I have in the next few years to just build and develop my skill as a photographer and my photography as a business.  I never really thought that this is something that I should do.  But after talking about it and debating back and forth with everything, this is the one thing that I feel the most peace with. 

Well, as for the next few days, be on the lookout for the blog post of the Taylor Wedding.  As well as sneak peeks from the McDonnell wedding and the FACS Fashion Show model casting and more! Trust me, you're going to love the next two weeks! 

Iphoto... *Designer Launch Party*

So I am in the process of getting new software for my Mac for editing, so I had to edit these series of images through Iphoto.  I feel as though that word is like death to fellow photographers, but that was what I had to work with this time.  To be honest, it really did a LOT better than I thought it would.  I mean, it isn't going to get down to fully complete editing to fit my style, but it was nice to do basic editing.  If your composition and everything is basically straightened out as you shoot and you just wanted to bump up more contrast or something of the sort, then Iphoto would work fine.  However, if you want to do more with your images, we all know that Iphoto is definitely NOT the route to go.


Well, anyways,  I have been asked to be the photographer for the FACS Association Fashion show in April of next year. I'm pretty excited about it because I have the opportunity to get so much more things for my portfolio and I have something additional to do.  I will be taking shots of basically the whole process leading up to the Fashion show.  So the first event was the Designer Launch Party.  I was able to get some REALLY nice ones.  I also used my new flash for the first time.  I still have some things to learn, but I was really impressed with how much it had helped me with shooting indoors.  I think me and indoor shooting are going to become friends soon!


Well, here are some of my favorite shots of the evening



Personal Shoot

So I usually hate being in front of the camera.  Especially since I have this idea of how I'm supposed to look, I'm usually pretty selective with who I have taking my pictures.  It got to the point where I really needed to get some done for branding, so I decided to have Leney Breeden from A Girl Named Leney take my pictures. I really liked her style. And I'm super glad that I have a lot to choose from!


Here are a few of my favorites:



It took me FOREVER, but I finally got the chance to finish editing my session with Michelle.  I think with the three assessment shoots that I have done over the summer, I have done more experimenting, on a composition side and on the editing side of things.  I faced new challenges that I had to learn how to conquer.  I just enjoy having the chance to just learn as I go along.  There really is such a heavy importance of shooting regularly and shooting often.  There is so many things that you can learn with just trying something new.  

Well, here are some of my favorites!
