Friday Inspiration - Featured Photographer

As a photographer, I'm always on the search for new inspiration to keep my photography skills growing.  I feel so lucky to have had the chance to get to know other photographers all over the world and share ideas.  As a new feature of my blog, i will be posting a section a couple of times a month called Inspiration Friday.  Hope you enjoy it!

Today i'm excited to introduce you to Jill Candland...I just love her fun and candid style.  I actually had a chance to meet Jill In Arizona last year and she's so sweet!  If you would like to check out her work, please visit her blog at: http://littlejillsmemoir.blogspot.com/

Without further ado, here's Jill and some of her amazing photographs.........

City/Country  you call home:
Mesa, Arizona
Favourite Subjects to photograph? Why?
HMMM I love high school Seniors because they are at such an exciting time of their lives--and I can do more creative things with them. But I also LOVE super laid back families that I can capture candidly. 



Type of camera you use
 Canon 5D


My favorite lens is my 50mm 1.4, because I can get such a shallow depth of field with all of the dreamy bokeh.  But the lens I use the majority of the time is  my 24-70 f 2.8.  I love it because I like to shoot wide--and also it gives me versatility.



Studio or Natural Light? why?
Natural light.  Because I love to go anywhere--and shoot in fun locations


tell us a little secret about yourself that nobody knows
I always go into the first stall of public bathrooms because my best friend's mom did janitorial work when I was in high school and she said that that was the one that she had to change the toilet paper in the least.  So I think it's cleaner.



Where do you look for inspiration
I like to check out other photographers work.  It challenges me to keep up on my game.

Where would we find you when your not busy taking pictures? 
Ignoring chores around my house.  I have a husband and 4 kids--and  I love to chill with them.  I also love to bake.


Who or what would you love to shoot that you haven’t already? 
I would love to shoot me with my family--I would like to be in the pictures without having to set a timer and run.  Is that possible? If someone figures it out let me know.


Favourite TV show or movie? 
I am a fan of 30 Rock--except for when it gets too trashy--I turn it off.  And  Modern Family. those two shows make me laugh out loud.  And So You Think You Can Dance--who DOESN'T love that show?


Jill...thanks so much for taking part in my Friday Inspiration Feature!
