After 20+ years in a computer tech job, Carol Schlintz is enjoying a second and more fulfilling career as a portrait and sports photographer in suburban Milwaukee. Like many of us, she has met with some personal challenges and is in need of reducing the physical strain from carrying heavy pro cameras and lenses around. Not one to take "no" for an answer, she jumped in with both feet and no safety net.

As of April 2012 Carol has retired her big DSLR's and picked up a couple of small, light mirrorless cameras and is now using them on every shoot. Vlogging here on discovermirrorless, as well as sharing and swapping ideas with the other Hybrid Heroes (and the viewers!) is part of her process of evolving from a still photo only photographer into a photo+video+audio hybrid image maker. Count on Carol to share what works, what doesn't, and all the steps in becoming Milwaukees first hybrid photography studio that specializes in making and selling eProducts.

Q: Do You Need Video Stabilization?

I’ve learned to be a steady still shooter. And I know when I need stabilization for my stills and head for the tripod. For video there’s only one time I need stabilization help – ALWAYS! There are many options and one that I hadn’t used much in my “stills only” days has turned out to […]

Q: Can shooting with other pros help me with my own style?

I volunteered to be an assistant for a sister Hybrid Shero at her sister’s wedding. I thought I’d learn some techniques and tips that I could use in my own shooting. Little did I expect to learn so much about my own style and what makes me the photographer that I am (and am not) […]
