HAPPY PHOTOGRAPHER SMILES WHILE SHE MAKES VIDEO

happy photographer smiles while she makes video

Being a happy photographer means you’ve balanced work that generates payment with work you love to make. Means you make photographs because you love the work, and you have the creativity and energy to continue learning a little each time. And sharing. And bringing love into people’s lives. (and I can shoot photo even when a migraine is in full swing…something about being behind the lens…it’s magical healing powers)

Do you love to make social media photography?

Do You Love To Make Social Media Photography? Well we totally love it…this one is called “NO ADDITIVES NEEDED” it’s about a drink I discovered. Yum. Sour. #citricacid #chilli #limejuice #orangejuice #negromodellodraft – this Mexican restaurant spot was spicy and sassy and cheerful as i entered – drawing me in to this #happy #bright space – when I slipped quietly into a noisy (fun happy background noise) quiet (able to not speak and read my book) corner of the Puerto Vallarta Bar & Grill – Islamorada and it made my night off a blessing! This was MY FIRST EVER #michelada I felt brave ordering it – even braver drinking it but ‘pucker my puckering lips’ what a fabulous sour kick on the rim with the #tajin all round the edge – what a way to drink beer! My first ever #micheladas all I can say is thank you oh creator of food! And of course @puertovallartafl puertovallartafl

The Cardinal Boone Breathes Life & Love Into American Cuisine

We found the best brewery beer and unique cuisine, in Boone, North Carolina. With exceptional American fusion concepts like – avocado, bacon, bison burger with fried okra and a venison burger with sour apple pickles and aged cheddar cheese – the pinball and space invader machines along with some lovely brew selections the most memorable of which were the tiny glasses of the 8oz powerful stout – hints of chocolate, coffee, creamy and thick – reminiscent of a Poor Richard’s beer! We were missing the musket fire and raccoon hats! But loving the small business and the people we met here!!! Going back again! Soon. College towns are great for this sort of character!

Ocean View Photography at Harry Harris Park

Sony Alpha in hand, once a month I hatch and execute an evil plan to make an ocean view photography shoot – typically on my way back from the school run. I sneakily make my way to Harry Harris Park – in Tavernier, 33070, Florida – it’s a quiet (during the weekdays) large public park on the ocean. It’s the only large ocean horizon view the public get to see in the Upper Florida Keys.

It can get busy. But at the weekends and holidays. It’s where those trailered boats come to be dropped off – they park their trailers, tidily along the fence by the road – hop eagerly into their awaiting water craft and take off with a roar of engines and white water wake…flags, hair and sunglasses straps flapping and flying behind them.

Getting set up for ocean view photography isn’t straight forward. For one reason, at certain times of the day the sun is right in your face. But I discovered the lenses and sensors can handle it if they are set up right! And the f22 aperture setting worked well for me on this trip.

Creative Visual Content

Visual content production is about the process we go through to make the symbols, the image – whether film or photo, that a person from anywhere – speaking any language, will respond to. Visual content production is what we do daily and – we are focused on using our world and the images stolen form it, to tell a particular story – the story can also be written with iconic ‘branded’ phrases. And used to put a new product or does on the phone screens of millions. Instantaneously. Here at Skybornvisual what we do is add aerial cameras to every typical image gathering scenario and this allows a simple new flower arrangement at a flower shop, a new style of coffee, innovative transportation, a wedding or event to have a more dramatic angle. And a stronger image. When people form an image in their mind related to something – see the pyramid of Consumer Values, they are way more likely to identify with it. And gravitate towards it. Like a warmly lit window on a snowy cold night or a lovely green forest in an urban sprawl.

We all want the comfort of our mothers and fathers arms around us. Even if imagined. We all yearn to be loved and feel the warmth of companionship, camaraderie and belonging.

Skybornvisual invest heavily in building that feeling of transcending all the ‘noise’ of our own doubts about who we are or our self worth. And showing everyone – visually – what good, what love, what beauty and hope there is in each moment. In all our struggles. When we visualize these affirming scenes in our own minds – we get a ‘hit’ of something good.
