Post

WOOF! Being a Mom is hard work. As if every parent in the world didn’t already know.

So here’s how some things are going – and my thoughts are as scatter … Read More

When it's Time to Update Your Corporate Portraits by Kelly Heck Photogtaphy
When it’s Time to Update Your Corporate Portraits
Post

Bad profile pics – we’ve seen them all! The “overhead puppy eyes” shot. The “I’ll just crop myself out of this photo with my ex” shot. The “I don’t like how I look so I’ll use this photo of me from really far away” shot. The “this photo is super old and pixelated” shot. And the “I’m uncomfortable in my … Read More

Meet Doug Heck, a Woodturner in Central Maryland
Post

Many of you know my Dad, Doug Heck, and that he’s been woodturning for many years. It quickly became a hobby-addiction of his when my grandfather (his father-in-law) gave him his first lathe… (and fun side note, my Dad has given my husband (his son-in-law) a lathe recently, and the addiction trend continues!) You can check him out and follow … Read More

Don’t be the Photo Client who Needs it Yesterday
Post

The other day, I had a phone consult with an inquiry that was like many other conversations I have had… Client: “I need a headshot… do you have any openings today or tomorrow?” I have noticed a strong correlation between timeline and budget. That is, one’s budget is dramatically lower when the service or product is needed “yesterday“. When an … Read More

Shooting Tethered and Why You Should Consider It for your Next Photo Shoot by Kelly Heck Photography
Shooting Tethered and Why You Should Consider It for your Next Photo Shoot
Post

Tethered photography is the process of connecting your camera to a computer, laptop, or other screen via a cable (or wireless app). It allows you to preview your photos full screen (and back them up to your harddrive) on the fly. Viewing images on a large screen (compared to the little LCD screen on the back of the camera) allows you … Read More

Hi Kelly, I want to buy a new camera… can you advise?
Hi Kelly, I want to buy a new camera… can you advise?
Post

This is a repeat question I receive from friends and family, but it’s a hard one for me to answer. I work with professional camera bodies that alone cost several thousand dollars, and individual lenses that can each climb well above $1,000 each. Most likely, that is not the level of camera that you are in the market for! So … Read More
