About CT Shoreline Photographer, Linda Sobolewski

My interests are simple: coffee, workouts, and being outdoors surrounded by beautiful scenery. There’s nothing like getting up early to photograph the sun rising over the CT shoreline. I enjoy taking high school senior portraits, lifestyle newborn photography, and capturing family gatherings in beautiful settings. My goal as a family photographer in Connecticut is to provide easy and comfortable portrait sessions as well as timeless, lasting images.

Photography Education/Workshop {Connecticut Photographer}


I love to learn. One of the things I love about photography is that I know I can keep improving my skills. Targeted photography education and workshops are an important part of making sure that happens. It just so happens I absolutely LOVE taking photography workshops through Click Photo School.

Click Photo School is an online community and forum of over 16,000 photographers! The level of talent there is mind-blowing and also very inspiring. In the past two years I’ve taken close to a dozen of their intensive photography workshops that each lasts four weeks long.

Some of the photography education I’ve received there ranges from learning how to shoot my camera in manual mode, to actually making my own website. It’s where I learned how to shoot and edit landscapes. I took two workshops on Photoshop and fell in love with editing. It’s where I learned about the different types of light and how important it is to making good photos. I learned about marketing, SEO, business and the logic behind pricing. So much good stuff!!

I just completed one called “What Lies Within” by the incredibly talented and inspiring Jen Bilodeau. If you click on her website you will see the kind of photographer I hope to be someday. Her photos are full of emotion and connection. You can actually feel what is going on in the photo. And how she edits – well, to say she does it beautifully would be an understatement, especially her black and white images.

Yep, I am a big fan of hers and when I saw she was offering this workshop I signed up. It was four amazing weeks of learning how to develop a vision in my sessions and to foster connection with my subjects. I learned how Jen edits to bring out this emotion even more. We had daily shooting prompts and weekly assignments that Jen critiqued. It was hard and and it was exhilarating! I even did a self-portrait. 🙂

Here are some of the images I took for this workshop. Thanks for taking look!

Self-portraits are really hard for me to do. In this workshop I felt safe enough to do one and I really like how it came out.
