The Family Photographer

On this episode, it's an interview with Summer Murdock. Summer is a photographer, teacher and mother of four. Along with Jennifer Tonetti Spellman, she launched the online photography school - Illuminate. She teaches a wildly popular class several times a year titled, The Magic of Light. And Light is what today’s show is all about. Summer talks about making great family photos in any kind of light. She says - if your mind is telling you to leave the camera at home because the light isn’t good - question that. We talk about how she learned to embrace bright mid day sun as well as her abiding love for the light in the last hour of the day - golden hour. We do our best to talk about how to make great backlit images - there are some things that are hard to describe and follow in an all audio format. Summer also talks about why she continues to love taking daily photos and how it has made her a stronger photographer and her recent experimentation with Drones. Enjoy the show.
