A love NOTE
Rudney taught me to document each setting on my camera for every shot I took in a log, how to measure light with a meter, and a few other basics.
Within just a few hours with Rudney, I had a strong grasp on the basics of shooting film. When I got my first scans back from the lab, I referred to that log to see what settings I preferred, and how I liked to shoot. I’m so grateful for Rudney teaching me how to shoot film.
Mentoring with Natalie was a huge game changer for my business. Not only did she leave me with new information but she left me with a heart full of inspiration. Natalie was so easy to work with and made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her.
She has such a down to earth, homey feel about her that leaves a lasting impression. She answered all of my questions and then some. She taught me how to find the best lighting, and how to use composition to achieve the images I want.
