EP 40: Fixing Blown Highlights and Focus Points with Amanda Hackl {coaching contest winner}

Once a month on the PBH Instagram page (@photobizhelp) I hold a contest. The winner has a chance to workshop something on the show to help themselves, and others learn something.

This time I'm speaking with photographer Amanda Hackl about fixes for common photo problems like blown highlights and focus points.

I asked Amanda to share a little something about herself for listeners. This is what she had to say:

“Hi, I’m Amanda. I am the wifey to a super supportive fella that has been pushing me to follow my heart in photography, a momma to a 1.5 year old walking tornado and a momma to one dog, three cats, a ball python and 8 chickens. But that’s not why you’re here…

My grandma was a photographer and growing up I always admired that. After she passed, I have always dreamt of following in her footsteps and being an animal photographer. Now that I’ve become a momma… I have fallen in love with family lifestyle photography. Even better if the families bring their pets!

 “I am in my first year of learning the photo biz, from how to work my freaking camera and manipulate light to how the business works and should be run. I’m a work in progress… enjoying every minute of the journey while pulling my hair out watching ALL the YouTube videos!”
