DISCLAIMER: I've got to run out the door now. Only a million and one things that have to be done today and in a short amount of time. I'll add photos later tonight.


Forgive me as I know this is going to get lengthy. I'm doing this bit by bit at night after Eliana goes to bed. That means I've got time to think and get wordy. I can write and read forever.

1. Who are you? Please include self-portrait and any links to other sites featuring you, like your blog, website, etc. Pimp yourself out!!
My name is Jeannette. I have a daughter Eliana who is 6. Right now it is just Eliana and I. I am the oldest of 3. I am 35; my sis is 32 and my brother 22. I was born in Erlangen West Germany on August 9th at 4:30am. So where I live now that would have been August 8th at 10:30pm. My dad was stationed in Germany while enlisted in the Army. We came to the United States when I was 5. Our first stop was California. We went back to Germany and my sister was born. I have lived in California, Texas, New York, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina and now Indiana. Eliana and I had a family portrait scheduled but it has been canceled. I do not have any recent photos of my family since we are not close to each other anymore. My parents live 8 hours away. My sister is 4 hours away and my brother is 7 hours away. I do have a family photo of the 6 of us Eliana was 6 weeks old on December 24, 2004. It was taken at Olan Mills. I am pretty sure that it is already packed up. Will have to work on getting a full family portrait this year. Eliana has a dog-named Nola. Right now Nola is with a friend being taken care of but I will go and get a photo of her once the weather warms up. Nola is a cute lil beagle that is 3.5 years old.

This is from the Nashville get together in April 2010. Rachel {CallRach911} took a bunch of headshot photos just right at the end.



2. What inspired you to get into photography? And when?
I've always been the photographer in my family. I remember using my mom's Kodak disc camera. I was probably 10-11 years old.



I also used a 110 and 35mm film camera. The 110 was a Kodak and the 35mm's were Fuji's. I had a love for Fuji's at one time. I had a couple digital Fuji's as well. Eliana was born November 14, 2004 and my passion for photography started to blossom more. In August 2007, I started with using a Canon S3 IS a high end point & shoot. It was not long before I knew this camera was not for me. It did get me started in wanting to learn more. In 2008 a Canon XTi came into my little hands. By May 2009 I sold the XTi and became the owner of a Canon 40D. Eliana truly is my miracle from God and I believe that with all my heart. She keeps me going and makes me smile even in the bleakest of times. I was on a baby name site when I came across Eliana's name. It was scattered among others as a border on the website page. I sure wish I had book marked it as I can't remember the name of it. Eliana means "My God has answered". Leiah is her middle name and it means delicate. Her name fits her well. And she is the reason I have the ever growing passion for photography.

3. What is your education? Degree? Self-taught? Workshops?
I am self-taught. I have learned most of what I've learned from 2 Peas and some from ILP. I do allot of googling these days and of course reading on 2 Peas. I have a couple books but I'm so a visual learner that I haven't really read them. The only book I've read cover to cover is Understanding Exposure. A must read for all those starting out.

4. What kind of photographer would you describe yourself as?
Wow this is definitely a hard question to answer. I know for sure I'm not a wedding photographer. I did a small one for a friend of a friend. I don't have a specific niche. I do a little bit of everything almost. May be one day I'll know and be closer to an answer.

5. What kind of equipment do you use? Not every piece you own, but your favorites or use most often.
I've got a Canon 40D that I hope one day to upgrade to a full frame. I love prime lenses. I have the 85 1.8 maybe one day I'll have the 1.4 which only comes in a Sigma version. I had the Sigma 30 1.4 and it was a great lens. I have the 100L 2.8 macro which is a real fun lens. Last but not least my 135L 2.0.

6. What did/do you struggle with the most?
That would have to be light and exposure. I still struggle with this sometimes but as time goes on I get better. Believe me I still have some yuck photos. And I just have to delete those and move on to the good ones. The more photos I take the more I learn as well as reading on 2 Peas.

7. What was your biggest "A-ha" moment? Can be something technical/camera-related, something personal as it relates to photography, or something you learned about yourself as a photographer.
One day I read a post that was about studio lighting. I have an AB800, giant soft box and reflector. I've used them a few times in the year that I've owned them. I don't remember exactly what was written but Shanna had replied. I do know it had something to do with the height of the light. I'm sure I bookmarked the thread and I'll have to see if I can find it. Once Eliana and I move and settle into a new place I'll have to get back to learning studio lighting. Learning that right now is on hold among some other things.

8. Biggest lesson learned? Can be either about photography, the business, yourself, etc.
Practice, practice, practice. Then practice some more. Post photos for CC and when not posting read CC given on other photos. Ask questions and no question is too dumb. And of course read, read, read and as much as you can. Learning is great thing when it comes to photography. And 95% of the time I take a photo in horizontal and vertical as I never know which way I'm going to like it better.

9. What is your greatest triumph or achievement? Could be just opening your own business, to awards, to a compliment.
Back in the days of owning my XTi I won a few awards at a gallery show. And 2 years ago I submitted two photos to the 4H fair. Both won blue ribbons. Every so often I'll get a message in my Facebook inbox or an email. About how much they love my work. Some wish they lived closer so that I could do photos of their kids and family. These messages always come when I am feeling down and feel like my work is crap. They get me to keep picking up my camera and giving it another whirl and not to give up.

10. What is one of the most important mistakes you made that served as a basis for your progression?
It was not a mistake I made. It was actually a comment someone made to me August 2006. It was quite harsh especially since I thought this person was a friend. But now I know better. She basically told me to find and pay models for me to photograph. She also said that I needed to take a ton of classes and to buy a real camera. But even after all that I'd never be any good.

11. What is it about photography that makes your heart sing and your mind race with possibilities?
That I am able to take a photograph of something and turning it into art. I take more photos then I edit and share here. I need to work on that and share some more. Sometimes I have an idea in my head. And it just does not always work on once I take the photograph. And other times I catch something great on accident. I love when that happens.

12. Which do you like better - taking the photo or processing it? Why?
If you had asked me this a year ago I would have said taking the photo. In the past year I have really cut my editing time down. It feels great to edit a 20-photo session in 1 hour. And now I enjoy taking the photo and processing it.

13. What inspires you? Could be anything - other photographers, nature, art, music, people, etc.
There are some many things that inspire me. And I am sure I could make a list a mile long but I will name a handful.

Eliana
Art
Books
Music
Photographs
Several photographers here on 2 Peas and others I have come across in googling. But I do not want to name names, as I do not want to forget anyone.

14. What is something about you that we do not know? Could be something serious or silly- your choice?
Wow this is a hard question to answer. It is hard for me to talk or write about myself. I can write a book and type forever in an online forum, text message or email. I am just not a real talkative person IRL. I am quite the opposite and very shy. I have overcome some of my shyness as I grow older but it really hinders me sometimes. I blame my shyness on the military. I am an army brat enough said. Honest I only have a handful of IRL friends and they do not live near me. My friends are all on the internet. In light of circumstances just before Christmas I am going to work on this friends thing. I hate having my photo taken. The last 5-6 years have left my teeth undesirable. And I know we should not be so big on looks. My teeth are another reason I shy away from people. Maybe one day when and if I have insurance I can work on that.

15. Can you share with us your loved ones? Especially if they have been featured in your work?

This is Eliana.



16. Can you share your top tip/technique with us?
My newest find a couple months ago was high pass sharpening. I came across a technique in a tutorial. I wish I had book marked it. I thought I did and of course I cannot find it. I came across this on Twitter. I used to use USM then smart sharpen. But high pass sharpen works better for me.

Flatten
Duplicate layer
Filter
Other
High pass
Pop up box. Radius 7.0 pixels
In the layers palette change the duplicate layer from normal to overlay.
Adjust opacity to liking. Sometimes 100% is way too sharp.

17. Who are you picking next and why?
LoriLeigh ~ Lori. I do not know much about Lori even though she posts on a regular basis. I can't wait to learn more about you.

18. Please share some of your favorite works with us!!

@ 12:04am February 10th ETA Photos

I've got a ton of unedited photos. It was really hard to decide on which ones to edit and post for this. I would have had more but my time is limited with everything that is going on in my life. This afternoon after i picked up Eliana from school for her vision therapy. I did a 360 and side swiped a group of tree bush like things about 5 feet tall. Thank goodness they were thin and not in bloom. 3 sides of my car are side swiped, My driver's mirror is hanging but not broken. It's drivable but it looks horrible well at least to me. So, I'll be spending time on the phone with the insurance company and then will have to get it fixed. Which will leave me without a car for who knows how long.

Jeannette - it was so wonderful to read more about you! I had the privilege of meeting you in Nashville (and thank you SO MUCH for the ride from the airport!), but time was so short and there were so many people/activities that we didn't always have a lot of time to visit. Hopefully we'll have another chance in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to write your interview, especially as I know things are so busy for you right now (and a bit stressful). When you get the time, it will be lovely to see more of your work.

Take care!
Anne

P.S. Are you guys getting more snow today? We are....DD is out of school AGAIN.

Wonderful interview! It was great to learn more about you. I feel much the same way you do about being shy IRL but more open using the written word.

Looking forward to seeing your photos when you have time to post them.

P.S. Are you guys getting more snow today? We are....DD is out of school AGAIN.


Anne we have left over ice from 10 days ago. There are roads still with 1-2 inches of ice on them. The road to Eliana's school is pretty bad. A few days before the storm it snowed 2-3 inches. Then the ice storm and the day after it snowed another 2-3 inches. Starting this weekend it's going to be in the mid 40's to 50 for the next 10 days. I hope this is a sign that spring is here and to stay. And yes Nashville was busy busy busy. No time to sleep or talk LOL but definitely fun. SO, that's a definite no on the snow. LOL. I think we've had a total of 12-15 inches all winter in 4 snowfalls.

Sarah I hope things start going forward soon. I'm done with going backwards. Eliana and I are SO ready to move so we can see a bright new future.

I am so fascinated with your macro shot of the steel wool pad! I don't think I ever would have thought to try one like that...but I'll definitely try it now

I totally agree with Anne - it was a pleasure to have met you! You always put so much effort into planning our GTG's and the ones I have attended with you have been a ton of fun! I loved getting to know more about you through this post, too, and really enjoyed your photos. Who would have thought to do a macro of steel wool - it looks so cool! I may have to copy that idea as well.

Oh - and I am hoping for a bright new future for you and Eliana, too! You definitely deserve it!

I really enjoyed your interview. The "steel wool" shot is so great. I love pictures of "stuff."
