I love taking pictures.
Capturing moments, settings, awesome views, facial expressions. It’s so cool to me. It reminds me of choreography and theatre staging. Having a theme or concept in mind, and working on achieving the right shot at the right time. I love it. So, I’ve been dabbling for a few years, but at the end of last year, I made the decision to step it up with my photography. After I took my friend Ica’s workshop in January, it was on!
Y’all know my theme for the year was “Challenge yourself”. Learning more, doing more. Bringing my camera along with me and experimenting with lenses. Stepping out and sharing my photos on social media. Actually telling people that I take pictures. I haven’t always been good at promoting my work or informing, but I’m growing into that confidence. And I have some awesome friends who have been so encouraging all year. So, if you’re reading – thank you!
Because of my commitment and awesome favor, it has led to some cool opportunities, which included my first paid gig.
Do you smile when you see sunflowers?
I don’t know what it is, but with its colorful hue, I can’t help but smile.
All summer, my friends and I had been looking around to find a field or park with a vibrant batch. Unfortunately, at the main park we were going to visit, the flowers’ peek had past. I did my research online and found Rocky Point Creamery in Frederick Co. They announced on their facebook page that their new sunflowers growing.
Happy Thursday, everyone. How have you been?
My family and I visited Bethany Beach, DE, a few weeks ago, to celebrate my Grandpa’s 80th birthday. It was a short trip, but it was still lots of fun. I brought the trusty camera to document the day.
On Saturday, youngest brother and I traveled to Brother #1’s school. They had been missing each other and since Little M (who isn’t as little anymore) just celebrated a birthday, I thought, why not go visit? Of course, I took the camera. Here’s a peek.
My interest in photography has increased in the past year. It’s another opportunity for me to be creative and share with others. For whatever reason, I’ve been more comfortable documenting inanimate objects. I never thought to take photos of people and I don’t take selfies often (blech!). If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that my opinion on the matter changed in the last two weeks.
