Lauren has been holding a camera for nearly half of her life, which becomes more impactful once you learn that she’s only 23! She received her BFA in Professional Photographic Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2014 and shortly after joined the party here at Studio Mucci.
So what does she carry in her camera bag?
Weapon of choice: Canon 5D MKII
Essentials: lenses (with the teleconverters being one of her personal favourites), lens wipes, extra memory card, extra battery, and her favorite red lipstick
She also shared some valuable insights for anyone who is looking to improve their photos or just become more comfortable with a camera.
“Learn how to use your camera!”
Sounds obvious, but if you’re like me and tend to pounce on any technology or new task with a “learn as you go” approach, this is valuable! Lauren suggests taking the time to familiarize yourself with every setting and option by researching and reading the manual. Because the more familiar you become the less you have to rely on auto mode and then thats where the magic will really happen.
Like any creative endeavor mastering photography really is about volume, as Lauren’s favorite Henri Cartier-Bresson quote suggests “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
