  • Begin with an introduction to lifestyle photography as Angie discusses the importance of storytelling. Then look at cameras and her go-to lenses that will help you achieve professional-looking images.
  • My first real camera (that I purchased by myself, for myself) was a Panasonic GH1 back in university. I remember taking loads of photos during campus functions, but it was totally hobby status; not a career. But I fell deeply in love with the hobby when I bought an adapter for a vintage 50mm Canon lens, which made my camera much more fun to use — especially for portraits. Then I kept on buying different lenses for that first camera and there was no looking back. My hobby had turned into a full-blown obsession.

  • Eyes are one — well, two — of the greatest challenges in portrait photography. A portrait with expressive eyes will grab the viewer. But the reverse is true, too: If the eyes are dull or blurry, the viewer's gonna look away. Luckily, there are a few tricks that can help you get the effect you want.

  • Here comes the sun … and there goes your great photograph. Taking pictures under bright, clear skies is definitely a challenge. That’s why the “golden hours” — early morning or dusk time when the sun is low and the light is warm — are serious photography goals. But not every picture-worthy event or moment is planned around your lighting needs. Consider these tips your SPF; they’ll save your photos from those rays.
