Hello, my name is...
Brittney Borowski as you probably already know! I decided to create a page that answers some of my most asked questions! I am a really big advocate for sharing and teaching about your passions so that other people can find joy as well. Shoot me a message below or comment on my instagram and I will answer as many questions as I can!
Also, Check out my youtube channel! It has a lot of videos and tutorials!
WHAT CAMERAS AND LENSES DO YOU USE?
I use a Nikon D850 and Nikon D610. They are both FX (full frame) cameras. My favorite lens and the lens I use the most is the 50mm 1.4. I also own an 35mm 1.8, 35mm 1.8, 24-70mm 2.8, & 40mm 2.8.
WHAT PROGRAM DO YOU USE?
I use photoshop CS6, Adobe Premiere CS6 and Lightroom Along with those programs I use a variety of filters/presets on my images. The ones that I use are from VSCO and Tribe Archipelago!
HOW DO YOU POSE YOUR MODELS?
Posing can be super hard! I personally play music during my photoshoots that match the theme of the shoot. Try to make the models as comfortable as possible and make them your new genuine friend!
HOW DID YOU LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY?
Honestly, I just picked up my camera and went for it! I personally believe you can learn more if you just go out and take pictures rather than sit in a classroom and learn. Experiment!
IS PHOTOGRAPHY YOUR FULLTIME JOB?
No! It isn't! It is just one of my passions and hobbies! I actually have my BA in Psychology. I want to be an organizational psychologist so I will be going back to school in a couple years for my masters. I just love all of the people I meet through my photography whether they are my clients, models, or other photographers. I also currently work at Apple and LOVE it!!!
WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR MODELS?
It depends. Sometimes I reach out to them and other times they reach out to me. A lot of my creative photos are collaborations. I simply just message them on IG or email them letting them know that I am super interested in working with them. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS?
My favorite locations are usually giant fields with long grass. I also love the forest. I lean towards nature. I also like urban areas if I am going for a specific style or something.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SHOOT?
In my opinion, the best time to shoot is at sunset or sunrise. You will see me out at sunset 99% of the time because I am NOT a morning person! If that time doesn't work for you, find some shade to shoot in so you can avoid shadows!
