Emily radiates the beauty God has intended for this world as does every woman He has created. She is a missionary who is devoted to Glorifying God in Prayer, in the Sacraments, in community, in trust/trustworthiness, in discipleship, in loving others, in humility, in her speech and in all of who she is. It is a true honor to work with such an amazing daughter of God.
As our new adventure unfolds here at Life Teen’s Hidden Lake Camp we have been blessed with the opportunely to be surrounded by a community routed in God’s Amazing Love and Glory. All summer we have the opportunity to work with amazing missionaries who are here to serve others and help lead teens closer to Christ. Two of our missionaries are assigned to documenting this journey of summer camp, Emily + Joslyn. Emily is our cinematographer and Joslyn is our photographer for 12 weeks. This offers them both a beautiful opportunity to gain experience behind the lens.
On my journey working with these two amazing missionaries offers me the opportunity to teach; but more then that- to see the world of photography and God’s love in a whole new and inspiring light. I asked Emily + Joslyn if they would like to do a photo workshop where they each had the opportunity to be in front of my lens. I personally believe it is extremely important as a professional photographer or cinematographer to know what it is like to be in front of the camera. There are three huge benefits of experiencing life in front of the lens:
1. Relaxing Your Clients: Experiencing the initial awkwardness of being in front of the lens will help you gain compassion and awareness of what your client may be experiencing. With this knowlage you will be better equipped to help your clients relax.
2. Natural Posing: Having to pose and yet be candied in front of the lens all at the same time will allow you to work out new poses for your clients + figure out ways to work them into a pose that flows with a natural grace.
3. Lighting: Brandon and I love to use natural reflectors during a shoot and we have found that the best way to teach about natural reflectors it to have someone experience them
