Before I go into this, I want to say, that one site that truly helped me understand the technical side of photography, was

http://digital-photography-school.com/ . 

Not only was this site helpful in moving me from one place to another, it helped me understand why it’s important to truly understand the technical side of taking a great headshot. The Rule of Thirds! As well as how to take great headshots.

I enjoy taking photos of people. I love capturing a moment. One things I’ve become obsessed with, in regard to photographing people (okay, I admit it; I’ve ALWAYS been obsessed with this) is Bokeh. In case you’ve never heard of Bokeh, Bokeh is a Japanese phrase for the blurry effect you oftentimes see in photos. The Bokeh can be in the background, foreground, or take over the entire photo. Here are some examples of Bokeh that I have done, myself:

One thing I like about photograhy in general, but especially Bokeh, is its ability to make you wonder. Where were these photos taken? What time of the day (or night?) was it when these photos were taken? What was going on in the background while these photos were being taken? Well, in the first photo, it was taken during the summer of 2012. I had insomnia one night, couldn’t sleep, and right before full sunrise I happened to take this photo. The water bottle happened to be sitting on my windowsill.

On to faces…

I find that people make photographs much more interesting,

Here are some headshots that I’ve done that I happen to truly love!

A photo can make you wonder. Wonder about the person. Wonder about the environment. Wonder about everything. I find that adding Bokeh to either a headshot, 1/2 shot or beyond with a human (or non-human!) subject adds an air of mystery to a photo. Experiment with Bokeh. It’s fun!

Brooklyn Bridge Park – I LOVE concerts and nightlife photography.

There’s something about the liveliness of concerts and nightlife that really gets me going.

One thing I will say; when people are loose enough and have had enough drinks in their system, they make for great subjects. Check out some of the images I’ve taken during a VERY lively outdoor park concert. The band featured, Sonny Knight and The Lakers, were amazing.  Once they left the stage, the audience pretty much begged for them to return.

Who I Am.

I am a woman of many names.

Born Emprice Imani Jeffery (I go by Emily Kos Jeffery), on March 6th in 1990, I like to think that my eyes were actually fisheye lenses from birth.

I’ve been doing photography for several years.

A bit of a backstory: I’ve been interested in photography ever since I was a tot. My dad dabbled in photography sometime during the late 80s/early 90s (before Digital SLR’s were a thing.) I didn’t own my first DSLR until I was in my early 20s, but had been doing photography before then with non SLR digital cameras. It was an exciting time, as a teen, to discover what truly caught my eye.

Once I purchased my first DSLR (Canon 350d with an 18-55mm lens), my photography skills began to grow and suddenly I was able to take photos from a very different perspective. Although, I will say, that it’s not the camera, but the photographer (and a little bit of Photoshop) that makes a photo great.

I provide very good photographic services for very modest prices. I’m always available for a chat, or to simply answer any questions you may have, regarding the services I provide, or about photography in general.

Cheers,

Emily
