Rebel Youth Photography: Blog https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog en-us (C) Rebel Youth Photography rebelyouthphotography@gmail.com (Rebel Youth Photography) Mon, 16 Mar 2020 06:53:00 GMT Mon, 16 Mar 2020 06:53:00 GMT https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/img/s/v-12/u299670877-o1072539659-50.jpg Rebel Youth Photography: Blog https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog 120 80 Christmas in Huntersville + An Update https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2015/12/christmas-in-huntersville-an-update I've been terrible at keeping up with these blog posts. Life and photography have both been busy, busy, busy. I've been shooting weddings with Rachel from Thirteenth Moon Photography, going to events for the Lake Norman Citizen and handling the Christmas season orders from my Etsy shop. In addition, Jacob has had two knee surgeries in the last 3 months, I sprained my ankle, we took a road trip to New York and I had to go home to Missouri for a family emergency. Phew! I need a nap!

The photography season is winding down and it's time for me to get back in the swing of things. I have 4 weddings waiting to be edited and lots of paperwork to finish up. I will post lots of photos as soon as I have them finished.

We upgraded our cameras this year and are now working on getting some fancy lenses to go with our awesome new cameras. I recently got a 90mm fixed lens that I'm completely in love with. We had several Christmas events to shoot for the Lake Norman Citizen and I decided to shoot Christmas in Huntersville with nothing but the 90mm. Did I mention that I LOVE this lens?!?! I'm so happy with how these photos turned out.

Doggy!!! https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2015/7/doggy When I photograph real estate, I get to travel around, see new places and meet lots of people. But my most favorite part is meeting all the cute little animals! Today I met this guy. He followed me around licking my legs and begging for pets. I really, really wanted to take him home with me. I took this photo as I was trying to leave. When his mom told him he couldn’t go with me, he flopped down on the floor and wouldn’t let me open the door.

So he had to go to doggy jail.  :(

A Graceful Bride https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2015/3/a-graceful-bride As every woman who has planned a wedding knows, nothing ever goes exactly as planned. Sometimes it’s big stuff, sometimes it’s lots of little stuff, but something always falls to pieces just before you walk down the aisle. For me, it was my genius idea to write my own vows. What was I thinking?
 
But not every bride handles the setbacks with as much grace and dignity as Sarah. When things became too much, she took a deep breath and asked for some silence.
 
Here are some photos of her very zen journey to the alter.

This Weekend... https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2015/3/this-weekend I had a busy, busy week and an even busier weekend. Unfortunately, I ended up in the ER when I started having incredible pain in my neck and arm. The diagnosis is a herniated disk in my neck. The good news is, I got good drugs. The bad news is, I have to wear a giant collar and lay flat on my back for a week. So the hubby stepped up and covered the photo shoots I had scheduled for this weekend. He did a great job and saved my hiney.

I did manage to get out of the house for a couple of hours to attend a dinner held by one of our most favoritest clients. But I was a little out of it from all the drugs.

Here’s some photos from the weekend:

We joined the PPA!!! https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2015/2/we-joined-the-ppa We are now professional photographers! Well…yeah. I guess we were before, but now it’s official. We joined the PPA a week before their annual convention and decided at the last minute to attend. It was a 6 hour drive to Nashville, TN and 4 days of dizzying amounts of information and awesome networking.

We attended lectures on photography and lighting by amazing photographers such as:

Zabrina Deng who taught us all about shoot pre-wedding sessions like they do in Asia

Moshe Zusman who told us how to light a dark venue

Dan and Alex McClanahan who took us on a walk through of an entire wedding day (plus they are the cutest couple I’ve ever met!!!)

I went to a ton of lectures on Photoshop and Lightroom techniques:

Julieanne Kost works for Adobe and is a lightroom wizard

(Look! It’s a duck!)

Jared Platt showed us how to streamline our editing process and cut a 5,000 image wedding down to 2 hours of editing time (I won a $110 pack of presets after his lecture!!!)

We met some awesome people:

This is Brooke Moxley. She’s a photographer in a town about 30 minutes from us! We met at a lecuture by Julieanne Kost.

We also met Anj Olsen of Lavender & Lime Studio. (Unfortunately, we didn’t get a photo with her because we were at the Super Bowl party and where having too much fun.)

We also got invited to a brainstorming meet and greet with the amazing people who host our website at Zenfolio. It was held by the CEO, Alex Peyzner, and the co-founder,Vitaliy Kuznetzov! They were an awesome group of people and we’re very happy to be working with them to make our photography business the best it can be!

And here’s a random photo of Jacob having lunch at the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center where ImagingUSA 2015 was held.

I apologize for the crappy quality of the photos. Even though this was a professional photographers event, none of us wanted to lug around a ton of equipment. I’ve never seen so many people in one place taking cell phone pictures.

More Engagement Photos!!! https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/12/more-engagement-photos We split the engagement photo shoot with my brother-in-law and his fiance into 2 days. We were all going to be with family in Raleigh after the holidays, so they picked a couple locations there. But catastrophe struck when we discovered that my husband had unpacked my camera and forgotten to repack it. He was in the doghouse for a few hours until he had the brilliant idea to rent a camera from a local shop. I ended up with a better camera and better photos! Here are a few:

The Proposal https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/12/the-proposal My brother-in-law called my husband the other day and asked if he would be willing to take photos of him proposing to his girlfriend. Of course he said yes! (And so did she!!!) They went to a park in the mountains called Pretty Place. It was a little bit complicated because my husband had to stay hidden while the proposal was happening, but he still got some amazing photos!

Scouting Locations https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/10/scouting-locations We have an engagement session scheduled for next weekend, but I’m an idiot and I put it on my calendar for this weekend. Thankfully I was early and not late. So, since we were already at the location when the bride called me to tell me the correct day, we decided to take a lovely stroll around the park where we had decided to shoot. Neither my husband nor I had ever been to the park before. I hate going blindly into a photo shoot, but it just worked out that way this time. Or would have, if I had gotten the right date. But it all worked out well. We had a nice day hanging out, and we got to scout the location and get some great ideas for our photo shoot next weekend. Here are some of the photos.

Pink Shoot at Metrolina Greenhouse https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/9/pink-shoot-at-metrolina-greenhouse Every year, the Lake Norman Citizen does a special issue dedicated to breast cancer survivors. They pick a local business or attraction where they do a photo shoot with local women. Last year the location was the Peninsula Club. We were honored to be asked to take the photos for that event. (You can see the photos from that day HERE.) This year, we were over the moon to be asked back to participate for the new issue.

Flight 1408 Drop Night https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/9/flight-1408-drop-night Last week, Jacob went to Wichita Falls, Texas to attend his brother's drop night. A drop night is when a pilot in the Air Force finds out where they will be stationed and what plane they will be flying. So of course he took his camera to this amazing event! Then he found out that all the guys from his brother's flight were paying for the event on their own, and they didn't have enough money to hire a photographer. Jacob to the rescue!!! He snap into action and captured some amazing images during the event. Here are a few of them. You can see all of them HERE.

Extensive Retouching https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/8/extensive-retouching As I mentioned in my last blog post, we recently worked with Metrolina Estates to create some professional headshots for their employees.

We're going on vacation!!!! https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/7/were-going-on-vacation It's that time again. Family vacation! 

My son, Jerrin, and I lived in the midwest until 4 years ago when we moved to North Carolina. There are so many differences between the midwest and the east coast. When I tell people this, they don't understand. I mean, it's the same country, right? It should all be the same thing. So we measured it out on a map. If we lived in London and moved the same distance into Europe, we would now live near Prague in the Czech Republic. When you think about it like that you can understand what I mean.

Even though we speak the same language, there are still regional differences. Here they call a winter hat a toboggan, which to me will always be a sled. They also say "might should" and "might could". While I immediately understood what was meant, I would have never thought to use the language in this way. 

The reason I bring all of this up is, vacation. In the midwest, if you tell your job "I'm taking a week off for family vacation", they will tell you that you can go, but you won't have a job when you come back. It's a completely foreign concept there to take a yearly family vacation. I think part of that is because it's the midwest and it's boring. There's not really anything there that could possibly occupy a whole week of your time. Sure, there's the Arch, but you can see that in one day. There's the Mississippi, but it's gross. Who wants to see that old dirty thing? There's the Ozarks, which I am embarrassed to say, they think are mountains. They're really just some big hills with a lake in the middle of them. But you can't even get in the lake because it's poisoned with toxic chemicals. Besides which, it's not a family place. There's lots of drinking and nudity there.

But here, there are beaches and mountains. Employers here will ask you when your family vacations is, so they can know when you'll be working. What?!?!?! Ok. I might hate some things about Charlotte (the traffic, red dirt, giant bugs), but I love family vacation!

That being said, we will be on vacation from the 13th to the 20th of this month. I would love to be able to take the computer with us, but it won't fit in the car. I will have my phone with me to keep up with things, so feel free to email us, but it is limited and I can't do everything I would like to be able to do.

I'm going to try to do a couple photo shoots while I'm at the beach. I will post photos as soon as we get back!

Real Estate Photography https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/7/real-estate-photography The best thing about my job as a photographer is getting to travel around and discover new places. We recently began working with a local short sale company. The very first job was in Chester, SC. So I packed up my gear and headed south. It's kind of a boring drive, but I was blown away when I got to Chester. It's such an interesting town. You can tell that it used to be a very important stop on the railroad way back when. Now it's a study in contrasts. There are boarded up buildings next to great big stone churches. (Even some of the churches are boarded up, too.) I would love to do a fashion shoot there! Anyone interested?

The house itself was very interesting as well. It was on a quiet street with very old homes. It had wood floors and a lot of personality.

We have two more houses coming up this week. I can't wait to see where we go next.

We met some of the people who run ConTemporal a few weekends ago when we worked at ConCarolinas. I'm so excited and honored that they asked us to participate. I wish I had enough time to put together a costume, but I think it's just gonna be jeans and a t-shirt this time. Here's an image of some of the people we will be seeing there.

How To Pose A Group https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/6/how-to-pose-a-group One of the most challenging things about photography is groups. But for some reason, it's one of the things that just clicked with me. Don't ask me about the technical side of photography, though. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Groups happen to be my strength. Technology, that's my husbands department. (Just one of the many reasons we make a good team.)

So, I thought I would write a blog post to discuss the basics of posing groups.

First, think of the dots on a die. Then imagine the dots are people. The ones up top are the taller people, and they're in the back of the group. The ones at the bottom are the shorter people in the front. By setting up people like the dots on this die, you make sure that everyone can be seen. No one is hiding behind anyone else.

This is just the first step in visualizing how you're going to set up your group. If you set up all your groups like this, it would turn out a little boring, and sometimes awkward. So let's think about the most visually pleasing way to view a group of people.

According to Darwin's Theory of Beauty, one of the most pleasing shapes to humans is the triangle. And if you double a triangle and set the two end to end, you get a diamond. These are the two basic shapes that we will be using to create our groups. Both of these shapes can be used to set up groups of 2 people all the way up to 20 or more people. Here are some visual examples...

 

 

By starting your group with one of these to shapes, you can build out to accommodate as many people as you want. The triangle is good for groups of uneven numbers, while the diamond is best for even numbers. But really either one will work as your base for any number of people. Once you have your base started, just add more people to the group using the staggered die configuration I mentioned above. Another important thing to remember is that no one looks their best from straight on. Have everyone turn at a 45 degree angle. Start with the middle person on your left. Have them turn toward the person on their left. Have the person on their left turn to their right, almost like they're going to face each other, but keep them at 45 degrees. Then when you add people to the group, have them turn and face the back of the person in front of them. Trying to describe it with words is a little confusing, so I'll post a couple of photos to show what I mean.

   

I hope this can help someone who's struggling with posing groups. If you have any questions, feel free to comment and I will see if I can come up with something useful.

My First Beach Wedding! https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/6/my-first-beach-wedding Last weekend was busy.

Our Weekend With George https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/6/our-weekend-with-george I'm totally geeking out right now! We got the opportunity to photograph the ConCarolinas event this past weekend. The guest of honor was George R. R. Martin. (What?!?!?!?!) We were expecting to have limited access to Mr. Martin. I mean, he's going to have an entourage of big, burly guys around him, right? Nope! He travels with one assistant. Her name is Raya, and she is super nice! 

We were allowed to photograph both of his book signing events, as well as all of the panels he participated in. I tried to be very professional, but I was freaking out on the inside! As it turns out, GRRM is just a normal guy. He attended all of the after parties and even hung out in the bar. I feel so honored to have had this experience. 

Here's some silly photos we took. You can see all of the images from the weekend HERE.

On A Personal Note https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/5/on-a-personal-note I mentioned in our first blog post that we have 4 rescue kitties. I thought I might introduce them to you. From the oldest to the youngest they are Ellie (the calico), Angel (the Russian Blue), Tiny (the tabby) and Zoe (the brindle). If you're a pet owner then you know that your pets are like your children. You take pictures of them, you talk about them and you annoy other people with pictures and stories about them. So that's what I'm going to do here.

This is Ellie. She's my baby and my guard kitty. She sleeps with me and won't let any of the other kitties near me. If she catches me petting any of the other cats she gives me the cold shoulder for hours. I got her first, when I was single and planning my life as a crazy old cat lady.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is Angel. She is a Russian Blue and quite possibly the softest thing on the planet. I got her 6 months after Ellie. One of my friends worked at the Humane Society and asked me to take her because she was scheduled to be euthanized. Of course I had to take her! She's been a challenge. She has some behavioral issues. But we love her anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is Tiny. Jacob wanted his own cat after we got married, since my cats ignore him, unless they want food. So we went and got Tiny from a shelter that rescues animals from kill shelters. She was rescued twice! When we got her, her name was Serendipity, but she was so little and sickly when we got her home that we started calling her Tiny and it stuck. She's not so tiny anymore, though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is Zoe. She's our accidental kitty. Jacob was getting gas in South Carolina, when a cute little kitty walked up and started climbing his leg. He called me all flustered because he didn't know what to do. We decided to check with the gas station attendants first. They said that people just drop animals off there hoping that someone will pick them up. So that's what he did. We were going to feed her and clean her up and take her to a shelter the next day. But as soon as I saw her I knew there was no way we could give her away. She is the cutest, sweetest cat we've ever met. (Shhh... Don't tell the other kitties I said that.)

Racing at Mooresville Dragway + Upcoming Shoots https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/5/racing-at-mooresville-dragway-upcoming-shoots It's been a busy, busy week!!! Over the weekend we shot the Test & Tune and the Fall Brawl (2) at Mooresville Dragway. This was the third attempt to complete the Fall Brawl from last year. It got rained out twice, and we were all very happy to have a bright sunshiny day for this race! We captured over 250 cars (10,000+ images) speeding down the Dragway for their chance to be the best.

We have a few very exciting shoots coming up! This week we will be shooting again with the beautiful Cali Young (2010 Miss West Virginia) for an ad campaign for Hendrick Lexus. Later this month we will be working with ConCarolinas, the biggest (and best) Sci-fi Con in the Carolinas. The same weekend, January will be sneaking away from the Con to shoot an amazing beach wedding! (Her first beach wedding! She is very excited!) 

Here are a few of our favorite shots from the races this weekend. And keep an eye out for some photos of Cali later on in the week!

Welcome to the busy season! https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/4/welcome-to-the-busy-season It's finally here! The busy season!

This week, Rebel Youth Photography has been super crazy, and it looks like it might last for awhile. We started the week off with a photo shoot for the Lake Norman Citizen. It was a 5k Color Run. We had never experienced a color run before, so we Googled it beforehand and saw that it was going to be extra messy, and tons of fun! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, we were invited to Ground Zero in Spartanburg, South Carolina to photograph a heavy metal concert, featuring the 80's band Anvil. There were tons of great bands playing. We had a lot of fun! Here is a photo of the singer from Neverfall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, we shot the first points race of the season at Mooresville Dragway, in Mooresville, North Carolina. This is our favorite photo of the day!

Our first blog post! https://www.rebelyouthphotography.com/blog/2014/3/our-first-blog-post First, let me introduce you to Rebel Youth Photography. We are Jacob and January Young and we are currently based in Huntersville, North Carolina. This is us:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have been married for nearly 3 years, we have a 17 year old son/step-son and 4 rescue kitties. Jacob went to App State and graduated with a double degree in Computer Information Systems and Accounting. He has a grown-up job, but his passion (and talent) is photography. I went to University for art and have been doing something or other art related for nearly 20 years. Together we started Rebel Youth Photography in order to pursue our shared love of art.

People ask us all the time about our name, so I will tell you the story. We have known since the beginning of our relationship that we wanted to start a photography company together. Before it was a reality, though, we had to come up with a good name. Jacob had his heart set on "Forever Young Photography." (He's the cheesy one.) So I Googled it, and it turns out that tons of people had that idea before he did. We needed a name that was unique and set us apart from all the rest, so I started playing around with different ways to use our last name. We brainstormed about what we wanted to stand for and what our style is. It was decided that we are young (and Young), a little on the rebellious side and willing to take risks to make good art. That's when it hit me, Rebel Youth. We sat on it for awhile, then decided that we liked it. That's the story.

Now, what can you expect from this blog? Well, I'm still sorting that out, but I'm hoping to post interesting things from our photo shoots and our lives, as well as helpful tips and info about choosing the right photographer to use. Also, maybe, what to watch out for. 

Alright. Until next time....
