Photo 101-Go Big

My intention today was to get a photo of warmth, because yesterday it was 50°, and I thought I could get something melting.  Well, it snowed this morning.  I went out on my lunch break and I froze my ass off.  Warmth was out of the question.  So I  went for big!

These are taken at a park just around the corner from my work. I don’t even know what they are.  If they are trees slumped over or big pieces of driftwood, as  the park runs along the river.

I’m screwing around with a new lens.  I can’t seem to get the hang of it yet!





Photo 101-Treasure

This one is easy.  If you have read any part of my blog, you know my daughter Autumn is my everything, my treasure. This was taken just a few weeks ago.  I love love love this photo. We had spent the day outside, and she was freezing.  I love that her cheeks and nose are red!  This is unedited, although before I print, I will probably take a moment to add a little something. Either a dark border, or a frost.





This one is totally edited, and I love it!



I love a little black and white!  Probably not my best B&W of her, but… I still love it!




Photo 101-Landscape

Make a wish?

I’m not sure if this really qualifies as Landscape.  When I think of landscape either a skyline immediately comes to mind or a house with lots of flowers and a great lawn.  But I stalked other examples, and  I think it may.  This was taken in my backyard, just as I got my new canon SLR, with not a clue as to how to use it!  I wonder how much better it would be if I edited it?
