Sky on Fire

May 12, 2011 § 7 Comments

I have been really excited about this post for sometime now! I can’t wait for you all to see these. Photos are crazy. When I look at these photos I can’t believe that I was able to capture something that could make me feel calm in the midst of my crazy busy and stressful life. It’s so awesome. Photography has given me the opportunity to pause for a minute…and that is exactly what I need sometimes!

I LOVE the colors I capture during this sunset. I feel like I am starting to be able to create a photo that actually turns out the way I saw it in my mind’s eye. That is so hard to do! Obviously I’m still learning, but now it’s starting to get way more fun!!!

I hope that this summer I’ll be able to devote much more time to my photoblog and start to make big improvements in my photography. I’m so glad I started this hobby! If there is something you’ve always wanted to do, DO IT! Even though I don’t spend that much time doing this, I am still learning and improving…and I’m in a Master’s program! There’s no excuse to procrastinate what you’ve always wanted to do. I’m so glad I’ve learned that because now I won’t be afraid to take on the next thing that comes along.

Walk Around the Block

May 2, 2011 § 2 Comments

Finally a new post! I have been swamped with work and school that I haven’t been able to get around to my new hobby of photoblogging. These pictures were taken a while ago, and I’m still working on getting comfortable with my camera. These were taken during my photography class…we all took a walk around the block. We ran into a few people and most of them would avoid eye contact with any of us and walk past as quickly as possible. I guess a group of 10 weirdos with cameras can be a little unnerving. (“please, please, please don’t try and take my picture”).

I chose my favorite pictures from that evening to post. I caught some really good lighting on some of the old buildings. I think the biggest challenge I’ve been running into lately is trying to compose something that’s really interesting to look at. I have come to really appreciate how amazing the human eye is. I can look at the world and see something fantastic, but it’s a whole different story trying to capture that through the lens of a camera.

I decided to use a slideshow this time around…it was just a million times easier to create. How do you like it? Which pictures are your favorite?

Where Am I?
