Q&A with Cover Photographer Meg Bitton

(Note from Amy) Cindy & I hand pick our cover photographers. When I came across Meg's work, I was stunned. Her emotional, dramatic and pure work captures the sheer humanness of her subjects. It's a pleasure to view her images, and I find myself returning again and again to certain photographs.

Q&A with Meg Bitton



How did you get into photography?

Back in high school a looooooong time ago, my dad bought me a film camera, and its been deep in my soul ever since.



Are there any photographers who inspired or influenced your work?

There are a lot of artists out there, be it photographers, musicians, interior designers, fashion designers, sculptors, painters that influence my work.



What is your photography philosophy?

Shoot what you love and the way you see life through the lens. Make no excuses and never apologize for your vision.


What is your photoshop philosophy?

Learn it, all of it. Understand the whole program.



What equipment do you use - and please describe your work process:

I am a Nikon user.


 

Your images have a hazy, dreamy feel with a tinge of something I can't quite describe; sadness? humanness? Please describe how you go about capturing this in camera and enhancing it in photoshop.

I go about capturing it in my heart and my soul. I click when I see and feel the moment. When I process, I close my eyes and remember the moment, how it really was and then I think about how to enhance that moment with color. Then, I start….


How do you pose and interact with your subjects?

I stay very far away from my subjects. I speak softly, sometimes not at all. I wait. Sometimes a long time.
 


You have developed a unique look to all your images. How would you advise someone just starting out who would like to find that special something in their own work?

No two people see life the same way. Put out into the world your vision and your passion. Dig deep inside of you and find it. It's there.

Proposals generally follow a four-part structure: 1) an introduction of yourself and your proposal, 2) a
summary of the situation and needs, followed by 3) descriptions of the ideas
or the properties or services you are offering, including all the important details and associated costs.

Investment in residential property in suburban and
peripheral areas offer immense scope for price appreciation due to prevailing
competition, attractive prices and the growing demand
for residentail apartments. What needs to be done to gain this benefit is to do things the right
way.

In a normal pregnancy the level of HCG found in the blood stream will double every 48-72 hrs up until 11 weeks
of pregnancy, after this point, the levels stabilize
and stay constant throughout the duration of the rest of the pregnancy.
Homeopathic HCG drops do actually contain the HCG hormone with purified water and some additional ingredients
like Vitamins B6 and B12 and L-Carnitine to increase the health benefits.
It can also be utilized by women who are using contraceptive.
Your health care giver (doctor) can help you and your partner by interpreting these readings so that you can know the days when intercourse
would result in conception the most. On the surface, both diets
appear to be somewhat similar, but there are key differences.

Of if it's simply a habit, like snacking in the evening
because you've come to associate TV time with food,
then realize that with perseverance, a habit can be changed over
time. I started out to help save money to create my desire appear true.

The golden rule is to try and avoid as much oil as possible and a non stick
pan is the perfect solution to this problem. As the first urine of morning is most concentrated,
try to take the test with first urine in the morning.
