Kerry LaMana's first time using a camera was a transformative moment in her life. It quickly became an obsession, driving her to read countless books on photography and scrutinize her own pictures—taken with a workaday point-and-shoot—with a critical eye. She eventually realized that she had a knack for the trade, and she broke into the industry by taking children's portraits and working as an assistant wedding photographer. Today, she runs her own shop—Photography by Kerry—and brings her passion for photography to every shoot, urging subjects to have fun in front of the camera as she attempts to capture their personality through her lens.
Natural settings such as windswept beaches are the backdrop of shots captured by the photographers at InspireMe Photography. They train their camera lenses on families, kids, couples, high-school seniors, newborns, and weddings, and offer custom packages.
With a background in fashion photography and photojournalism, Dana captures shining personalities with her contemporary snapshots, specializing in wedding-related events, family photography, and stunning individual portraits. A professional shutterbug creates a comfortable atmosphere in which children, couples, and families can overcome camera shyness and maintain lens contact, ensuring genuine, candid shots. After the shoot, master models can apply $30 toward prints (a glossy 8"x10" is $10) or photo collectibles such as a photo apron ($35) or mouse pad ($15). Clients can also order their photos on heavy-duty wrapped canvas (8"x10" is $75) or a mounted print ($65+).
Certified professional photographers Michael and Angela Koska impart fledgling photogs with digital-picture-taking knowledge during the four-hour workshop. The class is divided into three parts—Digital Basics, Taking Better Pictures, and What to Do After the Shoot—to cover all aspects of digital photography. Each camera crusader will learn the fundamentals and snapshooting, from how to use the flash correctly, to how to take pictures quickly enough to capture an image of The Flash. Students will also study backgrounds, foregrounds, and how to get up-close and personal without invading someone's personal space. Before the class ends, aspiring Annie Leibovitzes will know how to eliminate instances of red-eye and what camera angles best capture replicas of The Thinker made entirely of discarded pizza boxes.
