Anonymous asked: I got approved to shoot a big band but they're selling out quick and I haven't bought a ticket yet because they told me to wait until someone contacted me at a closer date to the event and asked if i had bought a ticket yet.... does that mean they're going to also give me a ticket? I have no idea, never happened before. I don't wanna buy a ticket and then get told they were gonna give me one but I don't wanna not be able to shoot it if it gets sold out! Help? :(

come off anon and shoot me a message! I can tell you a few options, I just need to ask you a couple of questions first! p.s. don’t be embarrassed to come off anon

onlyproof asked: To the person that asked the Nikon and Canon question. I work with a wedding photographer and he shoots Nikon so I asked him and he said that for outside/daylight he would hands down pick Canon over Nikon because the colors are great but for darker environments he would personally go with Nikon but that ultimately it comes to a person's preference because another one of the photographers he works with shoots with canon and she loves it. So yeah :)

Woooo! Anon, check this out!

Anonymous asked: Do you have any tips on posing? I'm really awkward with people :/

It always helps to do a little research before you shoot! I have a book full of inspirational photos that I study from time to time. I learned a lot about positioning the person’s body and flattering facial views back in college and I always see them being used in magazine ads. Find a few images that you would like to replicate (magazines, online, etc.) and study the placement of their hands, the turn of their body and how their face is tilted/turned. Take a variety of posed shots during the shoot. Some people may look awkward with their hand on their hip. If so, then lay their arms and hands flat against their sides. Some people may look awkward full face on camera. If that’s the case, then photograph them on a 3/4 turn or a full side facial view. 

While you’re photographing them and trying to find their most flattering body/facial position, compliment the subject throughout the shoot no matter what. It keeps them relaxed and not extremely stiff throughout the shoot. If they’re stiff and uncomfortable, it will definitely show on screen. Hope this helps!

Anonymous asked: nikon or canon? please give me advice

I honestly can’t give you great advice on this since I’ve barely played around with a Nikon. When I was just getting into photography, I chose the Canon Rebel XT since it was in my price range and when it came to upgrading, I continued with Canon since I just liked the feel of it more. The one time I played around with a Nikon, I hated it. I wasn’t a fan of the buttons and I just wasn’t super impressed with the results. They do say Nikon is more used for events and Canon is to portraits but again, I just feel more comfortable with Canon’s built and results. Sorry for the sucky advice. I’d either try renting out/borrowing a camera from both lines and see which one I dig more!

Anonymous asked: Hey, is there a computer you recommend for editing?

I just have a MacBook Pro and it works well for editing but unfortunately, I am not a computer expert. Maybe we can get my bro that works for Apple on this, he knows what’s up. ayhab?

Anonymous asked: were you backstage at the wonder years show this past weekend?

I was! That makes me sound like ‘that guy’ though. I covered the show for POZ! Lots of photos coming soon. I’ll probably post them on insta first though if anything. @mamamaysa

Anonymous asked: Hi :) I'm in 10th grade (16) and had once heard that if I was seriously interested in photography, than I should maybe take a few classes that local colleges offer. Do you know anything about this or know how I should get information regarding this? Thanks.

You should totally do that! All colleges are different though with that sort of thing. I remember I wanted to take college classes on the side to up my sign language level but I had to complete some other courses before I could take the classes and this was during my senior year of high school so I had my hands full with graduation around the corner. So maybe visit some community colleges around the area and ask about it! Or check on their sites. Let me know how it goes!
