#OurProject52 – Back to School

I don’t have any kids, so I don’t take those back to school photos that most people do, but working at a university, I do have the opportunity to take some photos of the students when they get back to campus. These photos were taken after freshman orientation, so many of these are new students.…

#OurProject52 – Still Life

I love to take photos of the little displays I make around the house and office, so it seems that I’m always taking still life photos.  I have yet to figure out how to get the photos to come out beautifully, but I still really enjoy taking them. What tips do you have for taking…

#OurProject52 – Celebrate

This has been a good week to get photos of celebration – it’s our local county fair. However, my side of the celebration at the fair always looks a little different, as my husband and I are volunteers out there and help to put it on (more him than me, but I help where I…

#OurProject52 – Negative Space

Negative space isn’t something that comes naturally to me when I take photos. This is probably because I like closeups so much.  I’d much rather take fill my frame with the subject, than leave empty space, so this was a great exercise for me. I’ve been doing a lot of book photography lately for my…

#OurProject52 – Motherhood

I managed to skip out on a few weeks of posting my #OurProject52 photos, mostly because I’m a slacker, but the main reason was that I didn’t manage to take any photos with fit the motherhood theme for the May 14th challenge. Not being a mother myself, taking photos that relate to motherhood was a…

#NaBloPoMo – Secret Shot

I love taking photos of people when they don’t realize it. I think this comes from the fact that I used to hate having my photo taken, and some people I know still do.  That means it’s easier to catch a smile when people don’t know I’m taking a photo. And have you noticed how…

#NaBloPoMo – Light

As an amateur photographer, light is something I struggle with.  My indoor photos are often yellow, and if it’s sunny, my outdoor photos can look washed out. Fortunately, I recently read part of the manual for my camera and discovered how “scenes” settings on my camera works. It’s helped me a lot. Does your camera…
