This spotlight is on Lizzy of Miss E. Photography.
What do you like most about photography?
I love it when people see how beautiful they are!
I want to capture the pure essence of their personality,
and help them see their true beauty.
I love delivering prints, and they get all giddy.
Most of all, it’s a creative outlet in a demanding world.
Do you have a specialty or a favorite subject to shoot?
I didn’t realize how much I loved shooting families until this last fall.
I love the energy. Engagements and weddings are favorites though,
because I love the sexual tension.
Its hilarious, and I get to be in a emotional and significant part
of someone’s history!
What got you started with photography?
How long have you been shooting professionally?
My first shoot was my senior year of HS.
My friend didn’t like her senior photos.
We went out and shot each other in the mountains (with a camera haha).
My family just got a Mac, and I edited it on iPhoto.
The rest is history! I have had many LLC’s due to moving back and forth
from Idaho and Utah…. I would say I have been shooting pro
for around 4 years!
What’s your favorite editing tool/action?
As lame as it sounds, the selective color and contrast tool haha!
I do have some Gatsby actions I LOVE!
What's your favorite lens to shoot with?
I have an L series 70-200 1.2 that is my BABY!
I keep thinking about getting an 85,
but now that I have shot with an L series, I don’t like my other lenses… So…
I will have to save more $! haha
Do you have any advice or tips for amateurs?
You really need to find your style.
I spent so long trying to figure out how others edited.
Then once I archived it, I didn’t like it!
Shoot as an art, and what you envision.
Have faith in what you do, and that you are good at it!
