Amy McMaster – Featured Artist

Featured Artist – Amy McMaster

KMLC- What was it about photography that drew you in and made you decide to pursue it?
AmyA friend shared pictures of her kids back in 2006. I thought they were so gorgeous. She shared some close ups- where the eyes were just amazing. The light in them- they just sparkled and drew you in. I’d never seen anything like it outside of random magazines shots. I knew I wanted to capture MY kids like that. I wasn’t sure how and I started asking questions. A lot of questions. My friend was most gracious in answering everything I asked. .

KMLC- Define your artistic style?
Amy – I think my style is more of an approach. I want to capture what is really real. What is actually going on. I love using a more journalistic/documentary style approach to the bulk of my work. I love the imperfections. The off the cuff way you have to shoot. Unexpected results sometimes because you are not always in control of the light or the subject. I like that. I am extremely fond of black and white photography. Rich black and whites with a lot of contrast. I do like some color though. Not usually bright color- but warm with a subtle flat finish is my preference.

I use this approach when shooting pets, farm animals, kids…or families.

KMLC- Where do you find your motivation to grow, be creative and unique?
Amy- I am generally a pretty thought-filled person. I love to deep think. I love to pull apart ideas and talk them to death. I love to figure things out- the who and the why and the how. But when it comes to my work I literally just feel. I don’t find myself spending 30 minutes thinking about a set up, the lighting, what lens…I shoot. I shoot what interests me in the moment I am in. I think this always challenges me to be on my toes.

Another thing I think that helps ME grow, be creative and sometimes…unique is that I do like to challenge myself with lighting, pushing my camera, and when I get the opportunity to try something new- I usually take it. Even if it’s NOT my usual style. I might come away from the experience with something that just furthers me along in my personal journey.

KMLC -Being a business owner can pose many challenges, tell us how you find balance between your business, art and your personal life.
Amy – I am going to be frank on this. It’s very challenging. I personally found it very difficult to balance business, art and my personal life. I managed for three years and finally chose personal life and art…and let my business go this year.

It was hard. But I am a homeschooling mom to 4 young kids. That is my 9 to 5 during the week. Plus two ago we started a small farm. I love it. I love everything about the life of a farmer. I couldn’t balance them all anymore. So I made the choice that was best for my family. I am STILL shooting. I shoot for friends, I shoot my farm, I shoot my kids and I just shoot life. I share those things with others. I am enjoying going back to my roots of shooting what I love and what is happening.

In a few years, I will revisit this decision and decide if it stays or I want to venture back out there as a business. But for now, I am happy.

KMLC- Tell us about these images.
Amy – These images are simply a collection of my eclectic life. They are everything I love about my life. My images do not always show the tears or sweat that comes with this life. I hope it is implied. Farm life, being a mom, a wife…just being ourselves…it’s just flat out tough stuff. But I love to capture the things that remind me of why I love my life so much. Why I pick up my camera and shoot it all in the first place. Chaos amidst chaos and all it’s raw beauty..

KMLC – We all want to know, what’s in your bag?
Amy – My bag is simple. A Nikon D700 and a small arsenal of simple, inexpensive lenses. My work horse the 50 1.4, 24 2.8, 15mm Sigma Fish Eye, 60 f2.8 Macro and for length I have a 105 f2 (no, not the macro) and my handy dandy humble 70-300 VR zoomie. Oh! And for a break from the norm – a Lensbaby with a slew of Optics for funsies! I carry all this in a cheap but sturdy bag I got off Amazon. I have an old Speedlight I use sometimes, a ring flash that I rarely use but it’s fun to play with and that’s really about it.

Look on to see a sampling of Amy’s amazingly pure images!

Michele Coleman Photography – Featured Artist

Featured Artist – Michele Coleman Photography

KMLC- What was it about photography that drew you in and made you decide to pursue it?
Michele – I fell in love with photography while in college studying Journalism. Back then I shot film, and there was nothing better than the “rush” and excitement I felt after I developed my images and saw them for the first time. I guess what drew me in was the art and the challenge of the craft. I always knew I would be an artist of some form. Before I found still photography, I dabbled in poetry, collaging, video production, painting, and other mediums.

KMLC- Define your artistic style?
Michele – Spontaneous, Artistic, Edgy and Colorful. I love to capture or create emotion, nostalgia, and innocence in my work with children. With High School Seniors it’s all about telling their story, showcasing their personality, and style. I equally love vibrant color, black and white, and a little vintage. I love to mix things up constantly.

KMLC- Where do you find your motivation to grow, be creative and unique?
Michele -My motivation to keep digging deeper and becoming better at my craft stems mainly from an overwhelming desire to create. I think all artists strive to continually create better work. Recently I have begun to incorporate my love of decorating and putting together colors and elements into my photography. It’s working out great and given me a new boost of creativity. I am also a highly motivated and independent person, which I get honestly from my Mother. Hard work and perseverance run through my veins. I have a dream of the life I want to live and my career is a means to see it become reality. Loving what I do and getting to create art everyday make it so much more enjoyable, of course! I also love to inspire others and strive to that through the images I create.

KMLC -Being a business owner can pose many challenges, tell us how you find balance between your business, art and your personal life.
Michele – I would be a liar if I told you that I have found that illusive balance. Still aiming for it. Traveling a lot seems to help. I love road trips, seeing and experiencing new things, and spending time with loved ones whenever I get the chance. Keeps me refreshed. I am, however, one of those people who can never seem to really “rest.” Even when I try to put the camera or computer away, I find myself itching to get back to it.

KMLC- What KMLC products do you use?
Michele – I use all of KMLC’s texture sets, especially Whispers and Whispers 2! I also love Light Leaks!

KMLC- Tell us about these images.
Michele – This set of images is of Sam, one of my Class of 2014 Senior Spokesmodels. Sam has a big personality, and is very outgoing. She’s into Dance, Theater, Music, Disney, Vintage, and Harry Potter. I wanted to help her showcase all of her various interests and she made is so easy with her awesome style and willingness to go along with every random idea I came up with. The tomato shot was done right beside of her house, and she worked in the field growing up. When we showed up to the location, the workers were still in the barn and told me I could use anything I wanted. I pulled together a few props and magic happened. I love that image. What I love most about it is it’s not just a cute senior portrait but it has a real story behind it. It means something to Sam because it represents a big part of her childhood.

KMLC – We all want to know, what’s in your bag?
Michele – A Nikon D4 and a D700 for a backup. Favorite lenses include the 70-200 VR, 85mm 1.4, 105mm 2.8 Macro and the 24-70mm 2.8. Other lenses in the bag: 50mm 1.8, 35mm 2.0. Lighting in the studio: Calumet Travelites with varied sizes of softboxes and a beauty dish. One Larson reflector. I also use a Ringlight, IceLight (new favorite toy), and some LED video lights. For on location photography with Seniors and Weddings I always pack my Elinchrom Quadra Ranger setup and a few Nikon speedlights.

Thank you so much Michele!!! Gorgeous images as always!

Melissa DeWitt Photography – Featured Artist

Featured Artist – Melissa DeWitt Photography

KMLC- What was it about photography that drew you in and made you decide to pursue it?
Melissa – When I was younger, art always intrigued me. Not regular pretty art you saw in homes, but crazy abstract art that didn’t make sense to most people. To me, it made perfect sense and it made me feel normal. At a young age I found out I couldn’t draw or paint but I could write, which I did frequently. It never crossed my mind I could be a professional photographer until AFTER I finished college. Seeing a black and white photograph that was so emotive and offered a piece of history did something inside of me. I wanted to capture that same timeless emotion. Once I had children and became a stay at home mom, photography was my outlet. When my first daughter was born (4 years ago), I pursued it as a business and have been very blessed since….. however, business aside photography will always be an art first.

KMLC- Define your artistic style?
Melissa – When I first began my business, about 4 years ago, I really didn’t know what I was doing. I KNEW I wanted to capture that same abstract emotional feel I saw in art and in black and white images but I didn’t know how to achieve it! The problem was, I was focusing on other photographers and what their style was. I was trying to do what worked for them because for some crazy reason I thought it would work for me. Once I focused on what kind of art made me happy, my photographs changed into something that pleased my soul. I would say my style is me…a part of me. The part of me that loves shadow, matte, raw emotion, and surrealism.

KMLC- Where do you find your motivation to grow, be creative and unique?
Melissa -Ah, my crazy dreams. haha. Now here is the part where you all decide that I am strange. And, I am okay with that. I am one of those people who dream in color… vivid crazy dreams where the emotion sticks with you long after. That is my motivation toward my imagery….to try and stuff an image full of life that screams at you even after the image was taken…10 or 20 years from now.

Being creative is something I enjoy because it is where I can totally be my weird self and embrace it. I love surrealism and I love making an idea come to life through images. Movies, old poetry like Poe or experts by Emerson, children, and life around us motives me to be creative and to create something unreal. Being unique is easy…anyone can do it. All you have to do is be yourself 100%, and don’t worry about what other people are doing. No one…NO ONE, can be you. Ever.

KMLC -Being a business owner can pose many challenges, tell us how you find balance between your business, art and your personal life.
Melissa – This is a hard one. I struggled my first couple of years to find this balance and it still is a struggle sometimes. But now that I am comfortable with my art and where it is going, I only work on specific days, hold proofing sessions on specific days, and the rest is play time. I try to stick to that the best I can because I have 2 young children and a husband….so some sort of balance is crucial.

Cool fact of the day, my husband has became a huge role of this business lately by offering Fusion Films and Stop Motion Films for sessions/weddings!

KMLC- What KMLC products did you use on these images?
Melissa – Overlays, textures, actions….the whole shabang. My creative conceptual shoots extends to creative edits…KMLC products are perfect for the creative brain.

KMLC- Tell us about these images.
Melissa – I asked a friend to give me a word. She said, “love”. I wanted to build a concept on “love”. But how could I show it without being obvious? How do we come to love ourselves and how do we define love? These were the questions I asked myself. Soon enough, the concept to this session was created.

It is about a girl who is running from becoming something she does not want to be. Society is clawing at her forcing her to blend in and she feels the pressure and fear of not knowing what to do. Running from the voices of society, she stops long enough to find simple beauty….simple creatures of this Earth (butterflies). At that point she transforms into love because she can finally see how simple her world can be. She feels beauty and finally her feelings are coming from within and not from an outside source. She can be herself and love herself for it.

KMLC – We all want to know, what’s in your bag?
Melissa – Lint. 🙂 Just kidding.

Camera:
Nikon D800, Nikon D700, Nikon D5100

Lenses: 35mm, 50mm, 85mm (

I use natural light 95% of the time, and will manipulate it with reflectors or foam board. For when natural light is not cutting it, I break out my studio light set up (Einsteins, beauty dish, barn doors, soft boxes).

From time to time I do rent the 105macro and 24-70mm for special occasions.

Thank so much Melissa!!! Gorgeous images, amazing concept.

Sarah M Photography – Featured Artist

Featured Artist – Sarah M Photography

KMLC- What was it about photography that drew you in and made you decide to pursue it?
Sarah – I had purchased a used fixed lens fujifilm to take on a trip to Denver last year. When I got home and went through the images I was surprised to find that not only did I have fun, but I might possibly have an eye for it. After that, I became obsessed with learning everything I could- learning manual, composition, all the ‘rules’.

KMLC- Define your artistic style?
Sarah – Weird. LOL. I guess I’ve always been a secret weirdo and photography is just the perfect outlet for that. I love anything that’s dark, creepy, weird, beautiful..I have an obsession with gas masks and chiffon.

KMLC- Where do you find your motivation to grow, be creative and unique?
Sarah – I definitely don’t lack motivation, photography is like crack! LOL, but really, I’m truly obsessed and find inspiration in everything-especially music, movies, books, and art. I find something that speaks to me, then put my own spin on it.

KMLC -Being a business owner can pose many challenges, tell us how you find balance between your business, art and your personal life.
Sarah – That is definitely hard. I don’t have a perfect balance, my family comes first, and then I squeeze in everything else-thank goodness for smart phones!

KMLC- Tell us about these images.
Sarah – This session was inspired by the book, “Valley of the Dolls.” I’ve read it several times and just love it. It’s about several girls in New York in the 40s and 50s who turn to booze and pills to cope with life. I also used Lana Del Rey as inspiration for the styling and the emotion. I wanted to portray a young girl, battling her inner demons, because I think we’ve all been there at some point, it’s just how you cope that matters.

KMLC – We all want to know, what’s in your bag?
Sarah –
I shoot on a Canon Rebel T3 (Don’t judge!). I don’t need a million focus points, I love grain in my images, so my little rebel works just right for me.
My go to lens is my 35mm, but I also use my 50 1.8 and occasionally my 24-85.
But, my bag doubles as my purse, so it’s always with me!

Thank you Sarah!!!

Cora Edwards Photography – Featured Artist

Featured Artist – Cora Edwards Photography

KMLC- What was it about photography that drew you in and made you decide to pursue it?
Cora – My parent gave me an ancient Olympus OM-1 for Christmas in 1997 and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve always had a fondness for small details that might otherwise go unnoticed and I think what initially drew me into photography was the fact I could highlight these details and show people the way I see the world. Things that can so easily be overlooked have a way of springing to life through photography. Even though I’ve been taking photos for a long time, I only just decided to pursue it in a professional capacity 3 years ago. My husband’s job has us moving quite frequently and this profession can move along with us. Anywhere we go, I have a job. It’s great!

KMLC- Define your artistic style?
Cora – I’m all over the place. Mostly I’m inspired by art, music, and nature. I love conveying a sense of emotion in my photos and really strive to be a “storyteller” and not just a “picture-taker”. I would say right now, my style is a cross between vintage, fine art, and composite work. I also do a lot of composites on my Iphone using apps for Instagram and that has opened up a whole new world for me!

KMLC- Where do you find your motivation to grow, be creative and unique?
Cora -I think I could say my number one motivation to grow is to always be pushing my own boundaries and never getting into a rut. I never want people to look at my photos and think “They all look the same”. I always have that in the back of my mind when going to a shoot. It’s so easy to get into a comfort zone and stay there, but that does not a good photographer make. I am constantly trying to think of ways to set myself apart from other photographers. Most of all, I think it’s important to just stay true to myself and not be overly concerned about how many “likes” my photo is getting on Facebook or Instagram. That’s not what it’s about. (even though it’s fun!) It’s about getting ideas and following through with them, going with your gut, and not being afraid to go off the beaten path.

KMLC -Being a business owner can pose many challenges, tell us how you find balance between your business, art and your personal life.
Cora – I am not a business oriented person at all. My brain just doesn’t think like that. Numbers and lists and graphs, oh my! Not for me. Unfortunately this is inevitable when you own your own business. Thank God I am married to a man who is quite business savvy. He keeps me in line and reminds me to save all of my receipts. Really the only challenge I have in regards to my personal life is reminding myself that not every single photo has to be finished in one day. It’s not the end of the world if I have to get outside and go for a walk. The photos aren’t going anywhere. I’ve been spacing them out a bit more and that has helped decrease the stress-levels significantly.

KMLC- Tell us about these images.
Cora – This session was inspired by “Ophelia” as well as one of my favorite paintings “La Jeune Martyre” by Paul Delaroche. I’ve always had a fondness for images and art depicting women floating in water. I think it’s so tragically romantic. I was also inspired by “Anne of Green Gables”, especially the part where Anne pretends to be the Lady of Shalott. That movie has been a favorite of mine since I was little and I used to act out that part. ha!

KMLC – We all want to know, what’s in your bag?
Cora – Currently there is a Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS, 85mm 1.8, 50mm 1.8, my Mark 5d II, some bug spray, sunscreen, anti-bacterial gel, a small pack of tissues, and some peanut M&Ms.

Thanks so much Cora!!! Amazing images!!!

Dalton Ln Photography – KMLC Featured Artist

Featured Artist – Jessica Sharpe of Dalton Ln Photography

KMLC- What was it about photography that drew you in and made you decide to pursue it?
Jessica – I always tell everyone I wish I had one of THOSE stories, you know digging through my grandparents attic, finding that old film camera & developing a deep emotional connection to photography at the age of, oh, lets say 9…. But that never happened. I have always taken pictures here & there, but I never knew it was what I needed to be doing until 2009. Valentines Day that year wasn’t exciting for me, my husband was loading up on a bus, and heading to the airport. Destination, Iraq. It wasn’t great, or ideal, but I knew we would be fine. Then we got some news. My husband was part of one of the largest troop movements in history from one war to another. He wasn’t staying in Iraq, he was moving to Afghanistan. There was news coverage of it all the time and we stayed by the TV seeing images of these men & woman, once I seen how much just catching a glimpse of a familiar face meant to me, I knew I wanted to do the same things for others. No war involved of course, just capturing a memory for someone.

KMLC- Define your artistic style?
Jessica -My artistic style….I would say I am a blend of portrait and lifestyle photography. I love a session with a theme, but never anything too posed. I love rich jewel tones and unique areas. I want my images to be timeless and evoke emotion or a connection when people see them

KMLC- Where do you find your motivation to grow, be creative and unique?
Jessica -I find motivation in everything! We live in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, you can not go for a hike here without being inspired by the lighting. I also love to people watch, seeing the way people connect to one another is amazing, and I love to convey that. Other than that I have a great group of peers who inspire and encourage me in a number of ways. .

KMLC -Being a business owner can pose many challenges, tell us how you find balance between your business, art and your personal life.
Jessica – It’s a tightrope act for sure! But one you have to balance on! We make time for family outings, movie nights, things like that. I also take time away for myself for things like girls night! Right now with opening the studio things are crazy, but I plan on making date nights with this handsome guy of mine a priority before he leaves in January!

KMLC -What KMLC products did you use on these images?
Jessica – Clouds/Actions/Textures! I use them all! I have the Grab Bag! Love It! Tack Sharp is my best friend! Due to my style of shooting my skies are almost always blown, so the clouds (especially the newest collection!!!) are a go-to! And then I almost always have a faint texture on all our images!

KMLC- Tell us about these images.
Jessica – This session was recently shot as a birthday surprise. Grace, 11, had admired this violin, which she appropriately named Robyn, in the music store catalog. She has started playing earlier this year and was using one the school had provided. When I seen she had got the violin, I knew what we were going to do.
The area we photographed in was a little walking path a neighbor of mine had done complete with a creek and bridge. luckily it was a little over grown and not too manicured so it worked perfectly!

KMLC – We all want to know, what’s in your bag?
Jessica – I’m a canon girl through and through! I shoot with a Markii 5D. My lens of choice is either my 70-200 or my NiftyFifty. I tend to shoot more natural light so my reflector is always on hand. Other than that you will find my Galaxy3, BurtsBees lip balm & always Pez! Little kids love Pez! They don’t melt or make a mess, and there are a ton in one tiny little pack, that’s a whole lot of bribery!

Thanks for sharing with us Jessica! Amazing images!

KML Creatives Featured Artist – Kelly Broyles Photography

I am so excited to be getting back into featuring fabulously talented artists!!! It’s been a long time in the making and it is now all ready to go. I am honored to be featuring, not only a wonderful photographer, but a beautiful woman as well.

So with out further delay….

Kelly Broyles Photography

KMLC- What was it about photography that drew you in and made you decide to pursue it?
Kelly – Growing up I always envied the kids with artistic talent. I couldn’t draw. I couldn’t sing. I could write to an extent but it never kept my interest. There was one thing that always kept me entertained: Dad’s 35mm camera. Anytime he would let me “play” with his camera I was sucked into a magical world of taking photographs. I become obsessive with photographs. Then when I was 10 I shot a photo of my brother on a swingset with a disposable camera that my parents blew up to a 8×10″ and to this day they still have it. The satisfaction I received in capturing that memory and the feeling of being proud I felt lit something inside of me. I didn’t actually decide to pursue photography until 2009. College years kept me busy (class, parties, etc…) so when I got married and settled down I finally had time to follow my passion.

I knew that I never wanted to look at my kids someday and tell them, “follow your dreams,” but deep inside know I had not followed my dream. Now someday whether I quit photography tomorrow or stay in it 40 years I can honestly look at my children and tell them I followed my dream.

KMLC- Define your artistic style?
Kelly -Clean and timeless. I want to create photographs that my clients love not only now but also in twenty years.

KMLC- Where do you find your motivation to grow, be creative and unique?
Kelly -I have a very tight knit group of photography friends from all over the country who are my motivation when I need a swift kick forward. We openly brainstorm together, share ups and downs and essentially have formed a photography family. They are my strength when I find myself down.

Aside from that I find inspiration in the world around me. I try (though sometimes it’s hard) to steer clear of Pinterest and other photographers work because I want to find my own inspiration. Cinema, books and magazines all inspire me. Most of the time I find when I sit back, relax and clear my mind I can find inspiration.

KMLC -Being a business owner can pose many challenges, tell us how you find balance between your business, art and your personal life.
Kelly – I work full-time and photography is my part-time business plus I am married and expecting our first child in the Fall… combine those things together and learning to manage my time was crucial. I had to find a happy balance between being successful at my full-time job, growing my business/passion for photography and having a personal life.

The thing that helped me the most was having a set schedule. I do not shoot on Sundays unless it’s an absolutely must for a client which keeps a free day open for my husband & family. And when things get extremely busy I outsource editing. I used to almost feel like outsourcing editing was “cheating” but sometimes it’s nice to know I can take a breather, walk away and let someone else handle the basics then I just do artistic editing once they’ve done the lifting for me.

KMLC -What KMLC products did you use on these images?
Kelly -I couldn’t pick just one favorite session to feature so Kristen told me I could pick a selection from a couple sessions.

I used KML Creative’s Cloud & Sky Overlays and KML Creative’s Dream Overlays (specifically the bokeh-licious.)

KMLC- Tell us about these images.\
Kelly – I adore capturing engagements. Happy couples in love anticipating their wedding day make me smile. And these two couples made me smile even more than usual.

The first session is my baby brother & his fiancee. Naturally since he’s my brother they have a special place in my heart, but my (future) sister-in-law has also become one of my very close friends so capturing their photos made my heart jump for joy. We shot these photos at Kanawha Falls just a short drive outside of Charleston, WV. By luck we were driving past and saw some gorgeous flowers growing after we had spent hours searching for the perfect setting!

The second session is a bride & groom which is getting married next week! We headed to downtown Charleston, WV and found ourselves inside Taylor Books, a quaint book store in downtown. Since Taran & Erik are fun loving they wanted to throw in a bit of their personality (wedding & music magazines) to their session. After the book store we headed to the (former) Sunrise Museum that overlooks Charleston. We found a stunning rustic bench that made the perfect backdrop for their photos.

KMLC – We all want to know, what’s in your bag?
Kelly -I am an absolute oddball in the fact that I shoot Sony. In my bag I carry two camera bodies plus an array of lenses including at the current time 35mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4, 135mm 2.8, 28-75mm 2.8, 70—20 4.0 (If you shoot Sony this lens is a gem!), Lensbaby Composer Pro and lots of other fun goodies (speedlights, light modifiers, etc…)
