JDP with #PhotographyAMA sign

JDP is hosting #PhotographyAMA Ask Me Anything starting July 22, 2018

AMA stands for “Ask-Me-Anything”. AMA is a “crowdsourced interview” where the community asks a host questions.

Julie is hosting her #PhotographyAMA beginning on July 22, 2018

It runs for 7 days, so get your questions in early. In fact, you can ask your questions right now. The answers won’t be published until the #PhotographyAMA goes live at noon on Sunday, July 22, but it will give me a headstart on answering your photography questions.

Read these insightful questions already submitted.

What it is you want to say with your photographs, and how do you actually get your photographs to do that?

What motivates you to continue taking pictures?

What is the one thing you wish you knew when you started taking photos?

Which photographers influenced you, and how did they influence your thinking, photographing, and career path?

How do you educate yourself to take better pictures?

What, in your opinion, is most important to consider while shooting portrait pictures?

Among the gadgets that you own, is there something that you wish you hadn’t bought? Why?

In your free time, what kind of pictures do you like to shoot and which ones do you avoid?

From your point of view, what makes a good picture?

Since the photography techniques and equipment change quickly, it is important to stay up-to-date. What do you do to always keep up with the times?

What do you think is the difference between a professional photographer and any other hobby photographer?

Join #PhotographyAMA @amafeed to see the answers beginning on July 22, 2018, noon Pacific Time

Lively and interactive EXPERIENCE

Welcome to Old Towne Orange Experience

Your “Photo Walk – Orange” EXPERIENCE portrait is done here!

 

Explore with Julie the vibrant commercial district and quiet back alleys of this quaint and historic town in Orange County, which is also a popular movie location. Orange Plaza at The Circle of Orange, site of the famous annual Chapman University Undie Run, is our meeting and ending location. A brief review of how our cameras work kicks off the event and Julie will answer photography “how to” questions.

Beginning by the fountain at the Circle in Old Towne Orange, where several popular movies were filmed, historic buildings and sites will be the background for our lively and interactive experience. Along the way you will learn tips and tricks for creating amazing images with your camera. Learn to understand light, experiment with macro, motion, architecture and people photography.

The best part of this experience is that I will photograph you during this experience so you will have lasting memories of your time in the O.C. We’ll end at a favorite spot for a snack and beverage, discuss what we learned and relive our best shots.
