Still a work in progress, but I am finally starting to understand the logistics of dramatic lighting.

The last post wrapped up my ten in color challenge. I am ready to post a black and white photo but must admit that my little challenge was really helpful. Maybe I should do a black and white challenge next...hmmm Here is a picture of me and Mr. Bean himself using the timer. I really want to jump in the picture a little more often. I still need to pull that tripod out of the box...

21/52 Flower Obsessed

I have really enjoyed taking pictures of flowers lately. Partly because we finally have some pretty flowers blooming and also because they are a great subject to edit in color.

Tons and tons of flowers are blooming. A sure sign that spring is here.

I have been trying to nail an eyelash shot for a while now. Finally did it! (and indoors I might add) I have been taking a breakout session from Clicking Moms that has helped me "find the light."

This is week 8 of 10 in color. I am proud to say this was taken inside Target. It is important to be brave and not afraid to take your "big girl" camera public places. I always get a little nervous  that a "real" photographer will spot me and think I am an amateur. Which of course I am, so who cares right? Still working on my ability to take indoor photos without flash.

Nine On The Ninth

Sometimes I am disappointed that I did not choose to do a 365 project this year. The only thing that has made me any better at taking photos is (obviously) taking more photos. I started carrying my camera with me again and so naturally I have wanted to take more photos than just one a week. So, I looked for inspiration from Click It Up A Notch, and got the idea to do a ten on the tenth project. Each month on the tenth I would take ten photos. However, in my excitement (and impatient nature) I ended up taking a bunch of photos on the ninth. I decided that instead of lying to you by saying that they were from the tenth, I would just do a nine on the ninth project. :) Here are my photos for April. It was a great opportunity to edit a series of photos and work on my style to make them all appear more cohesive.


for the love of coffee. :D

15/52 Easter Fun!

My little beans are really sprouting. It has been a pleasure to watch their relationship and enthusiasm grow.

On another note, I really want my photos to look cohesive so that my style is more obvious. I continue to edit only in color and I really think that is helping. As always it is a work in progress. I think you can see by the last photo that I am starting to get the hang of it.

Living in the south has given me a better appreciation for the "Oak Tree." I took this picture on a day with full sun. It could be a really great photo at sunrise or sunset. I will have to go back sometime at a different time of day. (Week 2 in color)
