As someone who loves the look of natural light, nothing makes me cringe more than photos that have that deer-in-headlights super-washed-out-faces-scary-terrible flash look (I am looking at you, disposable camera photos from the nineties!).
When I started studying photography, I truly believed that the only way you could capture beautiful light was to wait on the sun or invest in a lot of super expensive lighting equipment and learn a ton of confusing fractions and diagrams. This resulted in a lot of frustration, a ton of limitations, and most tragically, a lot of missed moments. Thankfully, I have learned that none of this is true: flash can be beautiful AND intuitive. As a photographer who has seen her art and her business TRANSFORMED by flash, it is the joy of a lifetime to teach others how to create light with confidence and discover the world of possibilities flash can bring to their work.
