The trick to all photography is the light, seeing where it is coming from and where it is going and where you and your subject are in relationship to it. This doesn't change at all whether you are using a smart phone, a medium format camera or a video camera.
Light to photography is like salt in cooking - you can eat it with a little or with a lot, but get the perfect amount, everything pops.

Who AM I: I'm still working on that, but in a nutshell, I'm Melissa Squires, I have owned A Girl In Love Photography for 11 years. I am a learner, a speaker, an activist, a partner and a mom. The Blurb on my website says:
"I have had work in Essence magazine, Huffington Post, Good Morning America, The BBC, Detroit Metro Bride, Michigan Brides, Brides, The Knot and The Knot Michigan, The Daily News, The Daily Post and work shown in galleries as well as on the wall of our local pizza joint, Sal’s. A bunch of blogs have featured my work and the great Preston Bailey said I was "Wildly Talented." My dad says I'm wildly talented too :) You can see reviews from real clients at myweddings.com, yelp.com and Facebook. Someday I'll get those up here too but I'm not so great at self-promotion."
I've driven cab, studied education and journalism, worked as a network engineer, and in marketing. There is more if you want it at www.agirlinlove.com/aboutme
Nows the time to get out your smart phone if you have it.
