Moving into Hybrid…Find a Mentor, Mentee or a Buddy

Carol Schlintz and I met at a Hybrid Hangout back in the fall and started talking weekly about how to move our hybrid photography forward: what had we done, what was our next steps, what was working, what else we needed to make things work.

In June, she came to my sistere’s wedding and she lent me all her hybrid equipment. While I shot the wedding, she shot me shooting the wedding and was there fore technical support. It was amazing to work with another photographer. I highly recommend finding someone to travel your hybrid journey with, a mentor or a mentee or just a buddy. It is so amazing to think with someone else who knows exactly what you are talking about.

About the Author:

She's a Mom, a wife, a pro photographer, a photo educator and she's fascinated with how to add some form of movement into the images she creates. Jessica Wallach runs Portrait Playtime in the Washington DC area and uses both a dSLR and mirrorless cameras to create images of kids, families and some commercial work. Not afraid to try anything new, Jessica is experimenting with how to use the moving images can convey the human spirit (and dogs too!). Mirrorless cameras are smart and easy to take good pictures with, and their video quality is much better than DSLRs, but using any hybrid camera comfortably to create still photos or video files at any moment in time as a little kid zips past the lens with a joyful squeal is what Jessica's vb logs are about. Do you shoot still photos of the moment? Or is a video clip better to capture the emotion? Or both? Jessica believes that photography doesn't always have to be about the struggle to get the right images, no matter if you use all auto functions of full manual. It's the image that matters. Jessica Wallace vlogs here to set you up for success with adding the depth of movement to your pictures.
