Scientists deny that technology can have desires, but Angela Cavanaugh’s equipment helped lure her into her profession. As a lifelong photographer, she’d always loved taking photos, but it wasn’t until she bought herself a prograde DSLR camera that she realized how deep her love ran. The ideas of directing a session, composing shots, adjusting the lighting, and retouching images in Photoshop thrilled her and activated her best talents, and she decided to turn her excitement into a career. She founded Images by Angela Cavanaugh and began snapping professional shots.
Since then, Angela has studied under other professionals and built up her portfolio. She now engages in all kinds of photography, from organizing commercial-model shoots and studio family portraits to taping her camera to an RC car and letting it capture what it will—namely ankles and some dark thing that looks like asphalt. But Angela spends much of her time taking headshots for actors and business folk.
