Friday Q & A–Elle’s photography

by Shawni
Yes it is Tuesday.  I am behind on these Friday deals.

I think I remember you saying that Elle has your old Nikon, is that right? I recently bought a Nikon D3100, and I love it so far. I have even ventured into Manual mode! What kind of lens was Elle using in these kinds of pictures? {from this post}

I sold my Nikon camera (and still miss that thing at times).  Elle uses a Canon Digital Rebel XSi (that we got for a great deal from Craig’s List) with my Canon EF 50mm f/1.4
attached (which I totally recommend for portraits…I used this one
with my Nikon for years so I know the more affordable 1.8 variety
works really well too).  Much more about lenses and cameras back here, but for now, speaking of Elle photography, please excuse me while I gush about her (and embarrass her too). 

I can’t help myself from showing off her latest photo shoot.

I love the way she looks for little details.

Then I found these on my computer one day…she must have decided to take an impromptu photoshoot of Grace’s friends.

Hey Shawni – I just got my first 50 mm. It's the 1.2 and I LOVE it. So fun to use.
It's so fun to see Elle's photos. Looks like she shares your great talent!

Elle is so talented for such a young girl! I love looking at professional photos and Elle's photos certainly look professional! Happy holidays to you and your sweet family!

Your paralyzed friend,
Heather 🙂

Hooray! This was my question I think. 🙂 Thanks for the lens recommendation. I might have to save up for that sucker but I'm putting it on my wish list.

Elle – you are fabulously talented! Your natural ability is amazing at your age, I'm so impressed!

Great photos! I love the photo of the girls in street–just their legs. Also, I love the sepia family photo.

Elle, you are truly amazing. You inherited your mom's eye for beauty and detail!

Love you!

I always think that it's Friday on Tuesday. I don't know why, maybe because Monday's are so hectic. You really threw me for a loop and I didn't even realize that you put the Friday Q & A on Tuesday. Thanks for the laugh and the beautiful photography!! You have an amazing family.

How awesome! My daughter is 6 and is showing some real interest in photography. I can't wait until she can come along with me on photo shoots. This is just fun to see, so exciting. How wonderful to share this hobby with your daughter.

Wow she is one talented girl!

Kaitlin December 7, 2012 - 12:42 am

She is full of so much talent!!! I was looking for a good program to make a watermark on my photos. How did Elle make her watermark with the cute flower?

The {Prince} Family December 7, 2012 - 12:48 am

Does she do mini-shoots? I am serious. How much does she charge? We live in Agritopia just down the street from you. Please let me know if she does. Thanks!

I know a couple of women who have tried to start photography careers, their pictures aren't nearly as composed, balanced, interesting and classy as E's. She's amazing.
