Weekly Feature | Jennifer Bogle Photography

Hey, Mamas! Truth be told, I (Allison) am a big fan of lifestyle/documentary. Major. Jennifer of Jennifer Bogle Photography  has a way with her photos - a true realness and story telling ability that is completely admirable. You all should go and show our guest judge some extra love this week. We are so lucky to have her here at The Snappy Mama. 

Let's learn some more about Jenn.... 

When did you begin your photography journey?

I’ve been snapping photos for a long time, but I didn’t really get serious about it until three years ago.  I figured out that my dslr wasn’t just a fancy point and shoot, bought a 50mm lens, switched to manual mode, and started shooting daily and grabbing up all the information I could get my hands on.  I ran a small portrait business for a while but now I’m mostly photographing my family and maintaining a stock art portfolio.   I only wish I started sooner! 

Name a photographer who inspires you. What draws you to their work?
Early on, I was lucky enough to end up in a 365 group with  Meredith Novario.  Her storytelling abilities are phenomenal and she’s one of my earliest online photog friends.  I love Meredith’s ability to distill a story into a single frame. She just puts it all there in one image.  That amazes me.   

Canon or Nikon? Something else? Sell us on your brand?
 Well, I’m a Canon shooter with a healthy dose of Sigma and Fuji for good measure over the last couple years!  As much as I love my 6d , I really don’t think the gear is the most important part of making an image.  People make amazing images with Nikons, Canons, Fujis, Sony cameras, film, iphones. . . Find what works and feels right in your hands and practice. That’s more important than a brand. 

Give us a photography related goal you hope to accomplish within the year.

My goal this year is to really get my images into an accessible format for my kids. I’m seriously AWFUL about printing images and that just has to change. I want to catch up on my photo books and I’m currently working on a 100 days of summer project that’s going to be a short movie of stills and video.  

What program do you use to edit your images? Tell us quickly why you love it!

  I do most of my editing in LR, and I like it for its speed and ease. I’ll pop into PS if I need any cloning or fine retouching. I  also use the Morai Compositor plug-in through PS to make collages.  

Don't forget to get your submissions in for the theme that Jennifer chose {water, water, EVERYWHERE!} So many wonderful photos to chose from - we sure do like to make our judges work around here! 
xoxo, Allison and the Mama's
