Meet This Week's Judge: Rebecca Wang!

This week, we have Rebecca of Rebecca Wang Photography guest judging what you share from behind closed doors. Enjoy her interview and beautiful photos!

1. Tell us about yourself:

I'm a mother to 2, absolutely beautiful and equally insane boys. I've never met 2 human beings with more energy and charisma than them.  I'm a wife to a pretty fantastic human being.  I say he's 95% perfect, because well, I can't let his head get to big.  We are a military family, and darn proud of it. I'm also a military brat, but spent most of my childhood in North Dakota.  I'm a midwest girl, grew up on beef and potatoes, so living in central california, I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who doesn't like sushi. haha.

2. What ignited your passion for photography? What fuels it now?

My passion was ignited after my second son was born, about 3.5 years ago.  My mom bought us a camera, so I started playing around with it, and never looked back.  My passion is still fueled from photographing my boys, it always was, is, and will be where my heart is.

3. What's in your camera bag?

My 6d, and my 28 mm f1.8. Oh, and some extra sd cards and batteries.
My favorite thing to shoot with right now is the 2 things mentioned above. I just recently upgraded my camera body, and I've made that thing my b**** these past few months. haha. My least favorite thing to shoot with is a flash!!  I hate it, dread it, never want to use it.

4.  What's your dream shoot?

My dream would to be a documentary journalist. I would give anything to travel and document real life issues, things that are happening right now all over the world.  To me a photo is more powerful then words, but put the 2 together, and it's magic.

5. What is your biggest challenge?

My biggest challenge is time and marketing. I just don't have enough time in the day. lol. I see people who are blogging, doing client sessions, personal projects, all at the same time.  I'm all over here like, shoot, did I remember to make my son a sandwich for his lunch today?

6.  If you had $500 to spend on photography...

If I had 500 dollars I should probably put it into our retirement. I know so adult of me. haha. I wish I could go on a shopping spree, and buy a ton of unneeded clothes, or a new camera bag.  I would really spend it on groceries, and bills.

7.  Is there any advice you wish you had gotten at the beginning of your journey?

Yes!  To not forget to be apart of the memory, and I don't mean by getting in the frame.  For the last 3 years, and even now, I take my camera EVERYWHERE with me, it's like a 3rd arm.  Anyway, just recently, I started thinking how I'm always photographing my kids doing things or parts of their day for me to remember, but what about them?  I love that they will know it's something I loved, but I want them to have more then that. It's ok to not pick up your camera and to just really enjoy and be in the moment with them.  Not everything has to be documented. :)
