7 Things Millennial Parents are Doing Right

The new age of parenting is way more advanced than the previous parental generations. There is a whole new environment created for the kids by millennials which makes them more effective in being parents. Here are the things millennial parents are doing right, which sets them apart.

Planning right

The millennials are conscious of their financial stabilities as well as their goals. They are aware of the responsibilities they will gain once they have kids. This is why they are planning their kids as well as their marriage way later than the previous generations. The average age of people getting married today has come up to 30 years as compared to 23 years in the past.

Learning

As the millennials are way more connected to technology, they have a huge information base to know and learn things. They use all sorts of platforms for informing themselves about daily life solutions ranging from cooking, repairs, home designing, and technology needs. This way, they can plan better living space for themselves as well as their kids.

Wider perspective

Unlike the previous generations, the millennials are more open-minded to new ideas. They are interested in listening to different perspectives as rather having a single belief system for them and their family. This gives them a much wider learning experience and also help them to educate their kids better about different cultures, traditions, and education. The kids today can choose from various opportunities and can stay humble to other’s perspective.

Health-conscious

The millennials are also encouraged for a healthy living. They are more conscious of the health benefits of staying fit and having a fresh and organic diet. They also have new alternatives for junk food which are equally delicious to be enjoyed by kids as well.

More involved men

Not just women, but the men today are also equally involved in taking care of the kids. More men are opting to take equal and complete responsibility of kids while more women are becoming the source of income for the homes because of their own choices. Men are interested in learning about parenting way more than before. From changing diapers to checking the health of the kids, dads are managing everything.

Making constructive arguments

The connection between parents and kids today is more constructive than ever. Today the parents choose to listen to their kids if they make a valid point or not. This gives the kids to put forth their side, which also teaches them to listen to what the parents have to say. If the parents do not consider what their toddlers have to say, the kids grow up to become rebellious and closed years for any bits of advice. It is a passive advising technique that parents use to teach their kids better things.

How To Taking The Instagram “Killer” Picture Of Yourself

Picture Of How To Taking The Instagram "Killer" Picture Of Yourself

Do you know Instagram is the second most engaged social media platform in the world, with Facebook as the first? Reading this piece alone shows you are on Instagram and want to be more engaging in the space.

Coined from the words “instant camera” and “telegram”, Instagram has recorded over 45 billion shared pictures. Instagram has also recorded over 290 million selfies and still counting in millions daily.

You can take one of those trending pictures on Instagram that can stand out from the crowd.

Have you ever wondered how to take a good Instagram photo of yourself? Then this piece is for you. The good news is that you can also have breathtaking pictures of yourself on Instagram from beautiful locations like Winnipeg in Canada.

You would want to experience photography in Winnipeg because there are so many amazing places you can take amazing photos.

How To Take A Good Instagram Photo Of Yourself

It is not enough to just post pictures of yourself on Instagram. You can take the photos yourself or get a friend who would want to be a part of this adventure with you.

You can also go for your photo adventure yourself. The following would help you achieve your desired goal.

1. A Tripod:

A simple and adjustable tripod will be of great benefit to you. You can always get a good tripod that would get the job done in most online sales outlets like Amazon. For easy transport, ensure it is foldable.

2. A Good Camera:

A good camera is a must-have. A DSLR and some wifi enabled phone can help get the job done. With the app that would help you control the camera’s shutter with a remote at intervals.

If you can’t afford a good camera, you can also use your phone if it has the self-timer but it would be somewhat stressful because you might have to set the timer each time or probably take selfies which might not cover the desired range or fully capture the environment.

It would also be a challenge in getting the right angle. So getting a good camera will help you up-your-game but ensure that the camera is connected to Wi-Fi.

You also need;

1. Good Lighting Source:

A good lighting source also contributes immensely to the outcome of a photo. Natural lighting source is usually the best.

Photoshoots are usually better especially before the sun sets or before it rises. The golden color it casts makes the photo look better.

2. Area Covered:

It is advised that the subject be captured in a photo session covers one-third or two-thirds of the photo. The subject should also be a position to the sides, top or bottom and not the center of the picture.

3. Get The Most Of Your Background:

The background can influence the general outcome of your photo. Use a simple background instead of a complex and packed background.

Some backgrounds “steals the show” making themselves the center of attraction but blurry or neutral background makes the subject the star of the show.

4. Let Motion Work for You:

In contrast to just standing still or just seating, you can make movements or mimic motion like walking towards the camera, playing with your hair or just moving your hand or leg and capture these moments. This movement makes your photo look dynamic.

5. Don’t Forget:

While using a public place for the picture, don’t forget to ensure that you choose a location or time when there’ll be lesser people in the location.

There are chances that you might feel shy especially when all eyes are on you. Just ignore them. Don’t trespass into private properties or cause unnecessary scenes.

How Can I Be More Photogenic 

Some people make a mess in front of a camera. To get better with taking pictures, you need:

  1. Practice: With practice with a camera or in front of the mirror, you can get better.
  2. Know Your Angle: There is a part of your body that helps you pose better naturally.
  3. Prepare: Preparation will help build your confidence. Extra make-up, a change of wears and more.
  4. You Can Do With Some Emotion: Do things that help you relax.
  5. You can try out new positions: Get out of the box and try out new things.

Great Places To Take Your Instagram Photo In Winnipeg

These locations offer you the superb background needed for your photo-shoots. They are also lovely places for you if you want to take selfies.

You should check out the following locations;

1. Esplanade Riel Pedestrian Bridge:

The Manitoba Museum is another beautiful spot for your photos. The museum has rich collections of materials like the towering dinosaur skeleton, the Nonsuch and other materials and objects from the history of the city.

OUR TOP 3 BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHS OF 2015

 

FEBRUARY 15, 2016

This is my bread+butter genre…. I LOVE births, so finding my 3 favorite photos was super fun.  

Our 1st place birth photo is by Three Plus Photography from Hawaii.  I love the deep connection of the parents with the precious baby looking on.  Beautiful! 

Can you tell us a little bit about this photo?

In that first hour after this baby was born, she was intensely looking around and super alert. I saw that her eyes were catching beautiful light as she stared at her mommy. I quickly decided to detach my lens and freelens so that I could nail a small area of focus. The bonus was that look that both parents have each other right when I released my shutter! This image has quickly become my favorite postpartum image in a long time!

What’s in your bag?

I recently upgraded to a Canon 5d mark iii and I still have my Canon 5d mark ii and Canon 7d mark i as back up bodies and for underwater work. As far as lenses go, I use my 50mm 1.4 and my 14mm 2.8 the most, and also shoot with a 16-35mm 2.8, 28mm 1.8 and a lensbaby Muse.

A piece of advice for the rest of us?

Find what makes your heart happy and hold onto that. Shoot what makes you happy. I know it’s hard when things are financially difficult and in those first few years where we shoot anything and everything, but use those times to figure out what makes you produce your best work; work where you pour your soul into. Documenting births is it for me, so even with the long hours and the exhaustion, I still wanna keep doing it because that’s what I truly love shooting.

If you could have anyone photograph you, who would it be?

Keeping it birth related, if I could go back in time and have a birth photographer for both of my children’s births (and if I could fly anyone I wanted!) I would get Paige Driscoll of Santa Cruz Birth Photography, Jaydene Freund of Cradled Creations to shoot it and Laura Paulescu of Crowned Photography to film it.

Niki Boon

I was mesmerized by these amazing black and white images by Niki Boon as soon as I saw them.  To truly understand the intent behind her images, I think you need to hear these words straight from her:

My love of lifestyle photography stems from a bit of history.. my mother died when I was in my late teens. We lived on a remote farm and back then cameras were not everywhere as they are now, because of this images of my life when I was growing up are minimal. I know of only two photographs of my mother and I together in a frame before she got sick, that exist and these faded 6’ x 4’ photos that I still keep close, have become extremely valuable to me. They are a reminder of how unpredictable life is, how important it is to live deliberately and appreciate those I love. Any images I have of our life back then are treasured, as they are my  primary source of stories now with only couple of people left to tell them.

Today as a mother, I am as you can imagine, rather obsessive about taking pictures of our family. It is my passion to capture as much of their life , as I view it, in meaningful pictures as I can… their stories, our stories and a piece of me.. there for them to rejoice in for years to come.

I want to capture life… the happy, the sad, the angry, the connection, the isolation, the emotion.. and want I dream to capture, even if just a glimpse.. is people’s souls, who they are… one day I hope to have these skills, it my challenge.

I want my work to tell a story, about the people I photograph.. who they are..who they really are, what they do and why they are here.

I am drawn to photographs with depth, mood , emotion, and the incomplete left wondering or wanting more.

LOVE THYSELF

LOVE THYSELF.
A self portrait iPhone tutorial.
by Jennifer Tonetti-Spellman
Owner, JellyBean Pictures.It all started just a month ago when I pledged to not bring my pro camera on our family vacation. I refused. I needed the break. I did NOT want to edit when I got home. I did NOT want my family screaming at me. A vacation should be a break from the norm, right?On our beach trip to Montauk, I started to really teach myself about the ins and out of the iPhone and it’s capabilities. I started experimenting with what worked and what didn’t. This year, I find myself in front of the lens more than ever before thanks to the Project Life 365 daily themes,
so I figured why not embrace the iPhone once and a while! {Besides, I cannot always have my big honkin’ D3s with me at all times.}Challenging myself in photography is what it’s all about and what keeps us all fresh. Adding tools to the tool belt is never a bad thing.Disclaimer: There are a ton of amazing iphonographers out there where every picture they post is truly a work of art. I  use my iPhone to capture personal quick moments without the ‘pressure’ of having to use the pro camera. Translation: By no means is my feed always rocking.
However, I do know so many struggle with self portraits and based on the questions I’ve received, so I wanted to share what I do know about getting a better selfie. All of the below images were shot with the iPhone 4s.As of late, all my iphonography questions have to do with the self portraits I snap mainly on my sunrise walks with my dog Skip.  It’s awesome to do them in solitude to avoid people looking at you like you are insane AND you cannot beat the morning sunrise light.The first thing I urge you to do when trying to get a ‘good’ iPhone picture, is treat your iPhone like a real camera.  So a lot of what you do with your dslr needs to carry over mentally when you are framing an iPhone picture.Where do you begin?To do an iPhone self portrait justice (and I am NOT talking about sticking your arm way out there while trying to a. keep it out of frame and b. try to look natural while your neck is strained to a point of passing out), I first had to find a camera ap with a self timer/reversible camera.I adore Pro Camera for 2 mega reasons:1. Expert mode (go to the three lines bottom right and you will find it there.) That mode helps you get two circles you can drag- one for focus and one for the ever so important exposure. Drag the exposure bubble to darkest portion of screen to brighten the image, drag the exposure bubble to lightest part of image to darken. It’s like a poor man’s metering system.
TIP: for me I always drag it to the middle exposure of the image so I get a pretty accurate overall exposure.2. The self timer.  I love it because it gives you up to 20 full seconds to get your act in gear {you can set how long you want the self timer to be by going into the settings menu.}  It also starts beeping 4 seconds before it shoots and gives you a friendly little high pitched, drawn out noise right at point of the shot being taken. So for me, who loves to show the whole scene, it gives me enough time to run into it and get where I need to be!So now that you have your ap, now time to perfect your technique.Grab a focus point {then run like heck.}As I mentioned earlier, treat the iPhone like your regular dslr. In order for you to get an in focus shot with your big camera you must give it something to focus on, right?  Obviously it cannot be you if you are setting up a shot and running into it. That said, pick something for the camera to focus on, then run to that exact spot.It can be a person, or an inanimate object like a chair etc.  I’ve been known to scare the bejesus out of my dog by flinging chairs to the side in the house.{For this beach selfie, I had my husband stand in and then as I approached him, he jumped out of frame} {In this shot, I focused on Skippy my dog, first. He stayed, I ran back, focused, hit the timer then ran back and thankfully he hadn’t moved}Use what you got!Much like in my pro shooting, I cringe at the thought of bringing ‘stuff’ that has to be lugged to shoots. I’m a documentary photographer, so I don’t use props but ‘stuff’ also relates to reflectors, tripods, timers etc.  I’m a total minimalist when I shoot. Camera + lens =I do not use a mini tripod, or any device to prop up my iPhone. Rather, I experiment with my angles by propping my phone up on whatever I’m given in that situation/location and what is available to give maximum impact.  I’ve been known to use chunks of wood, tress, mini sand dunes, fences to get it propped up.{I use the ground a lot. If you place your phone horizontal it stands on it’s own as in this image.}{I made a little sand mountain here and propped the iPhone against it. I also pulled over a piece of driftwood to stabilize it.}
Get some distance.

I love storytelling in my everyday work, and with the iPhone it’s no different. Utilize every second of those 20 seconds to get into the place you want to be in and present the whole scene in your selfies.  Selfies don’t always have to be so ‘in your face.’

Getting daring with the light.
I love love LOVE sunrise shooting but alas, my little girl is never up then so it’s generally me just wanting to capture those rays anyway I can. Everyone loves a good ‘bouncing light off your body’ shot- we can see that because so many Instagram profile pics have those delicious rays. It’s a bit of a crap shoot to try and do those when you only have a 3 foot high dog to grab focus on,and so it may take a few attempts but it can be done.
For this shot I set the phone up on e bench and put some distance in between me and it.  I could still see the screen and where I needed to position myself to have the sun bounce off my head thus producing the ray. I put a rock in that spot,  hit the timer then went to back the rock. It took 2 attempts to get the look I wanted.  I did not ‘add’ rays or flare as you can see from the below ‘before’picture, but I did edit it with pictapgo to get more of a silhouette/color enhanced look.
Other quick iPhone tips to make your images in general stand out:

Follow the light and include the sun.

As a 100% natural light shooter, I live for experimenting with the light. All qualities of the light that I work with on my D3s, I now work with on my iPhone. My fave captures are where the sun is included. These have to be shot late in the day or early in the morning.

{A sunrise walk on the beach with my daughter collecting shells. Sun was low enough in the sky to capture the ball of fire.}
For natural sun rays, where the rays are super pronounced, my number on tip is find trees that have the sun filtering through the branches.  Since we cannot really control aperture which also controls how defined rays are, I rely heavily on big trees.{Shot during golden hour, the big trees really helped get those defined rays.}
My favorite aps.
PicTapGo- I’ve been a fan of radlab for a while for my regular shooting, so I was thrilled when those folks launched pictapgo.
VSCOcam- *sigh* I would use this for everything if they just would add a self timer! I adore this camera and the filters and the editing options. It’s like a playground for me. But alas, I cannot do a selfie with it.
Afterlight- in addition to the filters, I love the editing functions on this ap like sharpen and adding grain.
Lighttrac- this one has nothing to do with editing, but if you shoot all the time in natural light it is pure awesome. It tacks light for you and lets you know optimal conditions and how rays fall based on time and location.
The beauty of shooting an iPhone picture in general be it selfie or otherwise, is that editing is lightening fast and the overall process is far more simple.
As with all shooting, practicing will get you to that next level.
Have fun and experiment. Happy shooting.

Interview With Heather Halford Whitten

Interview with Heather Halford Whitten

April 28, 2016 I’m so excited to be sitting down with Heather Halford Whitten. I have admired and adored her work for so long, and just love everything she posts. If you love raw and the true daily grind of our lives, then stop what you’re doing and go check out her page. Heather not only photographs her family beautifully but takes some of the most real and honest and gorgeous birthing photos I’ve come across.Please join me in welcoming Heather.

1. Heather, please tell us a little bit about yourself?Thanks so much for having me, Rebecca! I’m a documentary family and birth photographer in theTucson, Arizona area. I just turned 30 in February. Grew up in Eastern North Carolina. I’ve beenmarried to my high school lover for just over 10 years and I’m a stay at home mom with four kids.usually wrap up the intros there. But, I’m an open book!

2. I’m absolutely in love with the photos you take of yourself with your kids. What do you think draws you to the realness of the shots you take?Well, I honestly didn’t even think twice about taking them in the beginning. I was always taken abackwhen someone would comment about how interesting it was to see a scene I’d taken a picture of. Like,there is a picture of my husband holding my son in the shower that I took and shared in a class I wastaking a year or so ago. Fox was really sick and Thomas had spent most of the morning in the showerwith him trying to keep him cool and letting all the vomit and whatnot wash off of them both as itcame. It was such beautiful moment that spoke so much to me about the kind of father Thomas is. So,that’s what I saw and what I wanted to share but everyone in the class was so hung up on the fact that I took and shared an image of my naked husband and son in the shower… it was as if none of them had ever taken their cameras into a bathroom before! I don’t know, I’m rambling. But, basically, I don’t feel like any thing is off limits. If it moves me, I’ll shoot it and share it. This is my life with these unique and wonderful beings and I’m proud to share it with the world! 

3. I know sometimes when we expose our lives and families it can leave you feeling a bit vulnerable, do you ever experience this, and if so, how do you cope with it? I’ve always been vocal about the idea of combating shame with vulnerability. I feel like, by putting things out into the world I am taking control of it. I can share an image of my nude reflection in a mirror and by doing so I’m saying that I’m ok with myself just as I am. Or, even if I’m struggling insome way, that I’m ok with the process of it all. And in doing that, I can get ahead of anyone that would have something negative to say. It works with self-image, parenting choices, lifestyle, relationships… failures or successes… I’m just putting myself out there, as is and asking people to accept the process.But, I am dealing with some backlash from that right now. My Instagram account was recently deactivated with no warning. I share a lot of breastfeeding images of my twins and some naked baby booties from time-to-time. It’s really hard for me to swallow someone passing such a harsh judgement on the images that I share and ultimately of the choices I make as a mother and a photographer. It makes me feel so so out of control and vulnerable up against a faceless mass that I have no confidence will ever show up to the conversation with anything constructive or sensible to contribute. It’s definitely easy to find your corner of the social media world where it’s comfortable and you’ve accepted without question… but, having a wider reach with my work definitely starts to get tricky.When your art is a very personal subject… and, you go as far as to use it to reach out to others and encourage them to embrace and bare those sides of their lives as well… it can be shocking to have it taken in such a drastically twisted way by people that are on the outside of that comfort zone. But, I’m analyzing my position in the big scheme of things and pushing forward. It’s just a journey to find a space that you really feel celebrated and accepted and not somewhere that you shrink yourself to play by the rules. 

4. If you could photograph anything, out of the norm from what you shoot now, what would it be and why?I think it’s a tie. And, both of these are things that I was drawn to as a child and seemed so impossible to me back then. But, neither of them feel that way anymore and I look forward to exploring them when my children are older and I have more time to be creative and adventurous! The first being aMarine Life photographer… like, under the ocean, scuba diving with the fishes kind of images. And the second being really creative, environmental portraits of the nude body… like, abstract almost. 

5. If you could have one person photograph your family who would you pick and why?Oh, man. I always say Tara Whitney because I have just been in love with her as a person for years and would love to meet her and have my family shot by her. But, Lauren Mitchell is a favourite. She is such a fantastic friend and photographer… I’d love to see her take on my family. 

6. Heather, you and Bonnie Hussey, have recently partnered up on a new project called Project Postpartum. Would you tell us more about it and what your goals are for this project?We both had plans to take on postpartum projects in the future so we talked through a way to combine our ideas into one project at the end of last year and have just recently launched it. It’s still in the early stages but we’re excited! Through documentary and environmental portrait sessions along with Bonnie’s tireless research and first-hand interviews, we are hoping to continue the conversation about the variations of what is normal for individual women during their postpartum season. 

7. You mainly photograph birthing shoots, what do you think it is about these shoots that really connect you to them as an artist?When I was growing up, my dad always encouraged me and my sisters to have our first babies completely naturally. My mother had done so and he was really moved by the experience and felt it was something that he didn’t want us to miss out on. On my 10th birthday, I got to watch the video that my grandfather recorded of my mother labouring and my father catching me in his hands as I was born into a room full of family. I was hooked right then and there. It took Thomas and I almost two years to get pregnant with our first daughter. And, during that time I learned everything I could about childbirth. When I started focusing on photography after Lily was born and eventually came to embrace the fact that I just didn’t have any desire to do anything other than document life, just as it was, right in front of me, I knew births were going to be that magical sweet spot where I could combine both of my passions and offer my art up to others. It’s always really excited to get hired by someone to document the birth of their child because they appreciate my vision!

Heather_Whitten_02_1000.jpg

8. Are there any new techniques or equipment that you’ve been dying to get your hands on or try out?I am a minimalist, for sure when it comes to gear and processing. I’ve only had one lens [a Canon35L] for years. But, I’ve been debating getting a 24mm lens for about a year. Thomas dropped my camera last month and my lens has been in the repair shop ever since so I went ahead and bought a used 24Lii and have loved it so far. Other than that, probably polaroid film. I have had the worst luck at buying polaroids. One day, I want to get a nice land camera and really dedicate the time to learning and using it!

9. What do you hope your children take from the photos you take of them as they get older?Well, I hope that message of “there’s nothing to be ashamed of here” will shine through for them. I really do strive to raise my children to be proud of themselves. To make smart choices and to not be afraid of new experiences or different perspectives. So, hopefully, they’ll see just how much I loved being their mother and that I was proud to share our story.

Heather_Whitten_09_1000.jpg

10. If you could give one piece of advise to both new and seasoned photographer what would it be and why?I am a slowpoke. I’ve been learning about photography for nearly 8 years now and I still drag my feet and feel like I’m “not there yet”. I think these days people rush into the craft without any real idea why. I mean, money. I guess that’s a HUGE motivator for a lot of people… and I think if that is your motivator then I don’t really have anything to say on that because those people don’t usually see things from my perspective and I’m just an annoying bug buzzing in their ears. BUT, if you’re really in this for the photography of it. The journey of it… I say take your time. You’ve got a whole life to play and learn and grow. You don’t need to make grand statements right off the bat! It took me until just a year or two ago to really feel like I had found my voice in the midst of all the images I was making. And there was an enormous confidence that came with that. I knew I could walk into a birth or a wedding or a family’s home and walk out with images that spoke to who I was as an artist. And, that is so much more valuable to me… that discovery of what it is that I want to put out into the world, no matter the situation… it’s unshakable. It’s all mine.

I shot this session about a week ago with this beautiful family on a gorgeous evening. Stephanie (pretty mama) told me she had a vision for her session. She wanted a barn and warm summer light incorporated into the shoot. We found the perfect location to fit her vision and she styled her family perfectly. All the girls wore their favorite boots and dad wore his favorite shirt. The BEST part of this session was the natural connection and love that this family shared. You can’t fake real emotion! I adored these two little girls as we sang their favorite song, “Old Macdonald” the entire time
