    Rock Your Cocktail Photos

    Be honest with me for a second… have you ever used your phone to take a picture of your food, with your soul intention being to make your friends jealous #ShotOniPhone… Only to look at that photo and admit to yourself that it looks nothing at all like what’s in front of you, in fact it looks like a total piece of CRAP?!🤷🏼‍♀️

    I just quit my job and I always wanted to travel. So I went aboard with my best friend. When I came back, I had awhile to think about what I want in life. Where do I want to be in the next 3, 4, or 5 years from now? So I decided to take a class to help me improve as I go to a different career path. I recently started taking a photography class online. First, I thought it's would be easy and that I would finish it sooner. As I get into the class with videos and assignment, I realized that it's was not easy but it's fascinating at the same time. To see the history and the art of the camera as they copied our eyes... The more I falls into photography, the more I learned to love it.

    Getting a great Lion Shot

    Getting a great Lion Shot

    Have you ever tried to capture an award winning image of a lion at a zoo? Let’s face it. When your animal of choice sleeps for ten to fifteen hours every day, most of your photos will show lions sleeping on a rock. When they are active, they often hide behind structures or worse, they are right up against a fence. Who would want to get a photo with fences in the background? When the lions are really active, then people of all shapes and sizes rush to the enclosure, so you need to jockey for position to get your shot.

    Do You Love Taking Pictures? How To Turn Your Hobby Into Cash.

    I’ve loved taking pictures since I was a kid. Everywhere I’d go, a camera always came along too. Until a couple of years ago I never thought about actually making money from them. It was just something I enjoyed doing.

    Immortalizing the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Immortalizing the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    The long months of confinement most of us have lived since the pandemic outbreak sure had their ups and downs for me and for a lot of people, I can imagine. Keeping our sanity in a world going sick and mad is quite the challenge, especially since every window we open on society, like social media and television for a start, alienates us a bit more every day by reminding us of the crises going on all around the globe. We need distractions now more than ever before. In my case, I discovered a new passion in photography. Slowing down the pace of my daily life made me realize all the artistic, poetic potential of my surroundings. I had never truly taken the time before to think about the fact that every glimpse of reality can carry a message and convey an emotion. Art is everywhere for those who look for it and meanings are subjective, personal. There lies the true power of photography. Every picture, every moment can tell the story we want it to tell. Everything is a matter of perspective. I find this idea infinitely inspiring.

    Story Through the Lens

    Story Through the Lens

    [Foreword: this is an article I wrote in my senior year of high school. The advice is solid, but the images really aren't, so I look back with a heaping measure of irony and invite you to have a good laugh with me. Do as I said - not as I did!]

    The Photographer's Perspective

    The Photographer's Perspective

    Imagine we’re taking a stroll with our cameras and pass a construction site. Typically, photographers aren’t interested in construction, but this particular build catches our eye because of a certain photogenic object in the middle of all the silent machines and piles of dirt: a rusty old truck. It’s adorable. Its surroundings are anything but adorable. Weeds and even turkeys have overtaken the field, and a few dumpsters further obstruct the view. Whichever way we shoot, it seems we’ll run into something ugly.

    Mistakes Beginner Filmmakers (and Photographers) Make...#4

    Lighting for video takes some skill. It’s not an easy task. It took me a while to figure out what looks right, what looks natural, and what the heck I actually wanted when I was given a script or wrote my own script with specific settings.
