Different perspective in photography…getting low or off camera flash photography are items that help differentiate yourself from others.

Utilizing Off Camera Flash – helps add depth to the image versus flattening out the photo.

Milestone Shot – Bride on Wedding day laying on a log in her wedding dress.  This was the first photo that Jared indicated that he shot that he liked.  Melissa was photographing from a different angle and Jared snapped the shot without posing the bride.

Every have the feeling of should I be somewhere taking a photo – Once in Edmonton we jumped into a fountain to take a photo and security came over, however, the security guard stated he would be off for ten minutes and walked away.

How do you stay sharp / on top of your game…any classes to gain more knowledge?  Sometimes you get into a mental rut and Melissa would come up with an idea for a challenge to expand the creativity.
