Month of Thanks – Days 7 & 8

So now to I am completely caught up.  Hooray GOOO  Me!

November  7th- On the seventh day there was black and white photography…oh how thankful I am for thee.  I have always been a fan of black and white photographs even back in my film days.  One of the things I love is how there are no colors to distract you from the purpose the photograph. Whether the subject is a portrait, landscape or architectural.  You see all the little details that are sometimes lost in a color photograph.

So you can see the difference…the same image in color as in black and white.

November 8th – I am thankful for Color photographs today.  They have a unique quality that is all their own if done properly.  Just like with black and white photogrpahy there is a no one size fits all.  The settings in the camera as well as the settings in your favorite program are what makes a GREAT color photograph. You have to look and see what you would like in a color photograph.  So here is some of the many photographs that I love.


Month of Thanks – Days 5 & 6

So I got a little behind on this but I am going to finish this MONTH of Thanks!

November 5th – Photography blogs are what I am thankful for today.  These blogs share their stories and photographs.  I love top 10 list, client stories, and how these blogs encourage me and many other to become better photographer.  I am truly thankful for this indirect support.

The following are some blogs that I follow such as:

You might take a look at these blogs.  I find them all interesting for so many different reasons. They all show me a different way to look at the world around me.

November 6th – Beautiful eyes is what I am thankful for today.  They are windows to the souls.  The  eyes are so important in portrait photography, they can communicate a person’s thoughts and feelings.  The following photographs are some of my favorite of people’s eyes.  What do the eyes say to you?

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Going to try to make another post this evening to catch the rest of the way up.


Month of Thanks – Day 3

November 3 – I am thankful for my Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses!  I must say that I appreciate this company for making quality cameras and lenses.  This equipment makes it possible for me to create stunning images to share with the world.  I am thankful that this company produces excellent equipment that allows me to be able to do something I love.

One of my new favorite websites…..Pinterest

After a child’s photo session earlier this week, the mom was telling me about this website called Pinterest.  She was saying how you can look and pin or link images or things you like.  Create boards of these images, and put them into groups.  I have to say this is my second favorite site, after Google of course.  I can find almost anything with a Google search, but lets get back to Pinterest.

You have everything from DIY projects to architecture to photo inspiration to jewelry and hair styles.  You just click everything and these newly pinned images are up on your screen.  Or if you way to look at Wedding and Events click that button and BAM you are looking at images that have to do with Wedding and event ideas.  There is a little bit of everything on this site.  I love the Print category.  It has all these different prints, wall hangings and sayings.  It is a awesome way to find almost anything you didn’t realize you were looking for.  This site can inspire you to do a DIY project on your house.  Inspire you with an idea on how to make your wedding completely different from something you have ever seen before.  It can give you an idea of the exact chair you have been looking for to complete your living room.  It could give you that next big idea to do something that could change your life.  Need an idea for a gift for that person who has everything.  Looking for something different to cook for your next snack day at work.  Look at the tech section for that gotta have gadget. Then this site is just for you.  It has everything under the sun from A to Z.

You have to request an invite or be invited by a friend to create boards.  And the great thing is if your friends join, then you can follow each other.  They post things that they like and there you have it.  An idea what to get them for insert name of holiday here or their birthdays.  If you need an invite email me or let me know and I would be  more than happy to help you out.

Have a great weekend!
