"I have used Angela’s services repeatedly and cannot begin to express how much her expertise in Lightroom and photography have saved me hours of stress trying to navigate technical issues on my own. She is positive and such a pleasure to work with – no question is too small. I’m not tech-savvy, but Angela teaches me how to maintain a workflow in non-technical language. I highly recommend her services." -Danna Dykstra-Coy | Danna Joy Images | Cayucos, CA

"I have had the pleasure to work with Angela on a few different occasions.  From helping to recover images off of a failed drive, to coaching on unfamiliar software.  I always come away with more knowledge and understanding than I had previously.  She dealt with me on my level and never hesitated to approach any problems.  If she did not have the answers, she researched until she did.  I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone." -Catherine 'Cat' Evans | Thru Catz Eyes Photographic Art | San Luis Obispo, CA

"I would like to give Angela Andrieux a testimonial of the services she has provided to me over the last 2 years. – I was new to Lightroom, and really anything that was computer related when I first met Angela. Since that time, she has created my web-site. She has shown me how to set up the my photographs in Lightroom; rescued me, and guided me through numerous computer blunders. She is patient, professional and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend her services most highly without reservations. If you need to contact me you may do so." -Angie Crompton | Angie Crompton Photography | San Diego, CA

"I had a session with Angela after my hard drive crashed and essentially started from scratch setting up my Lightroom and other editing software. Time spent with her brought the first smile to my face in weeks. She coached me through backing up my files so that I never again suffer such a huge loss. She was quick and encouraging and extremely knowledgeable, which was critical for someone like me who is passionate about photography but not the technical aspects of the business. I strongly recommend Angela’s services and I know I will use her again for follow up services. I’m still smiling!" -Danna Dykstra-Coy | Danna Joy Images | Cayucos, CA

"I worked with Angela a couple of years ago. I was a fan of her photo editing skills. So I asked if she could teach me some of her Lightroom techniques. First, she taught me how to setup my photo library from importing to exporting. Then she taught me the basic editing techniques everyone should use when working on their pictures. Next we went over some key tips and tools. To this day I still use those techniques from our session. One thing I remember from our session…she didn’t overload me with information. Angela tailored my session to my skill level. Even now she is available if I have any questions about problems that come up. I would recommend Angela without hesitation and enthusiastically." -Antonio Croft | San Diego, CA

Instagram: Love it or hate it?

By Angela Andrieux | April 25, 2013

A couple of weeks ago I shared a fun infographic on Facebook about what your Instagram filter choice says about you. Its a fun piece (check it out here), and it got me thinking about a conversation I had with a customer at an art show last year – is the easy access to photo…

San Diego County Fair 2013 Entries

By Angela Andrieux | April 23, 2013

Friday night I was scrambling to submit my entries to the San Deigo County Fair Exhibition of Photography before the 11:59PM deadline. It had been a hectic week…why should my Friday evening be any different? At around a quarter to ten I hit a tech glitch in their system. I paid for four entries, but…

One of the filters I purchased was a B+W 10-stop Neutral Density Filter. This amazing gem significantly…

How To Create a Sunburst Effect – No Filter Required

By Angela Andrieux | November 13, 2012

I captured this photo at the California Photo Festival during a class with Rick Sammon in Pismo Beach, CA. To get an image like this with the sun (or any other bright light in an otherwise low-light scene) as a sunburst you can do one of two things: Use a star filter OR Choose a small aperture setting like f/16…
