This is our archive of postings about photography techniques. Lara has been a professional working photographer since 1996. Here she talks about all the tricks of the trade that she’s picked up over the years. Everything from what to wear to a family photo shoot to lighting techniques and more. We share these photography techniques with you so that you get a better sense of the depth of Lara’s photography knowledge. Sometimes I’ll post about some of the techniques that I use as a photographer’s assistant. It’s a jack of all trades role that can provide an interesting behind the scenes look about the business of photography. Which often involves lots of gaffer’s tape and contorting my body into silly and uncomfortable positions.

  • 5 reasons why I like to leave my lights at home

    I’ve been a photographer for quite some time now. I’ve worked both in and out of the studio, with and without lighting equipment. Back when I was first starting out on my own as a photographer, I must admit I was a bit afraid of lighting. I didn’t know much about it (the mall studios…

  • That Lucky Shot

      I spent last week up at Fort Casey, in Coupeville, Washington last week. I was volunteering at the parent-run camp for my kids’ school. Of course I brought my camera; how could I not? And besides, I was the designated “camp photographer” for the week, so it was a required. The first day we…
