I took this shot because of the dramatic nature of the clouds.

Photo Friday: Favorites of 2015

January 1, 2016

For today, I decided to post my favorite photographs of 2015.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.IMG_0884I just love this squirrel

Photo Fridays are back

November 6, 2015

I have been away for a while due to internet problems, and illness, but I am back to doing what I love; doing photography.  When I last posted, I had a Canon t3, and a cheap point and shoot, but in the time since I last posted I have acquired a Canon SX610HS for my Point and shoot, and; drum roll please; a Canon 7D Mark II.

I spent 39 years taking photographs, hoping that some day I would be able to live my passion for photography through the lens of a professional end camera.  I now have that opportunity, and I am going to use it for all I can.

In addition to the cameras, I now have Adobe Lightroom to process my raw files.  I have already used it and I love it.

Here, then, are two of the first photos of my new camera.  I hope you all enjoy it.

Photo Friday: Shadow Play

March 6, 2015

Today’s picture came courtesy of a sunset.  One of the biggest photo clichés is, of course, the sunset.  Everyone with a camera has hundreds of pictures, at least, of sunsets.  To be fair, no two sunsets are exactly the same (foregrounds, cloud formations)  all different.

In the case of today’s photo, I decided to show the beautiful effect the sunset was having on my surroundings, rather than the sun.  I still get the warm glow, and with the angle of the sun through my window, it created a perfect silhouette of the flowers on my entertainment center.

Sometimes the sun is the only light source you will ever need.

Photo Friday: Can you tell the difference?

February 27, 2015

On today’s video, on my NaturallyPhotographic channel on YouTube,  I am talking about how good photographs come from the photographer, not the camera.

Digital Rev has a series of videos in which they give a professional photographer a really cheap camera, and have them take pictures with it.  The resulting photos are always good, proving that the photographer is the key to better pictures; not the camera.

When people come up with “bad” pictures, they try to justify it by saying, “Well, I do have a cheap camera.”  This leads many people to believe that when they see really good pictures, it must be a superior camera.

On this video, I showed four photographs I took.  Two were taken with an SLR camera, and the other two were taken with a point and shoot.  I asked people to leave it in the comments which is which.  I’m going to ask you to do the same.  Here are the photographs.
