At the park . . .

It was an impromptu thing, our photo shoot at the park, but I left with some images that capture the fun and smiles of my three younger siblings.  Meet the gang . . .

P.S. I played around with my watermark recently and am wondering, what do you think?

Our Crabapple

Often times, at this point in the year, when I step through the sliding glass doors opening up onto our back patio, I am met by the site of this lovely crabapple tree . . .

I think it looks like a tree that belongs in a fairy tale.  It's dripping with gorgeous pinkness.

I hope you're having a wonderful week and soaking up this beautiful spring!


Maximilian: 3 Month Portrait Session

Pet portraiture wasn't really a genre I had considered when I first started photography. But I have to admit, capturing all this cute fuzziness isn't so bad. :)  I will warn you though, if you're a fellow photographer beware, cause these little guys can be way unpredictable, very wiggly, and oh . . . super cute.

This is a favorite :)

Maximilian: 3 Month Portraits - Preview

You may remember Maximilian from a post I did on him not that long ago at 8 weeks old.  I'll tell you he's just as cute now as he was then, though he is twice as rambunctious, I might add.

As a stud for breeding, Maximilian's puppy days are being carefully documented in order to show perspective buyers of his offspring what he was like as a puppy.  Anyway, I think he's pretty cute and he's got to be some of the best 2-plus-lbs. of fluff to cuddle in the region.

Stay tuned for more!


Aim and Fire Friday

Aim and Fire Friday posts are designed specifically for the amateur photographer who wants to learn to take better photographs but doesn’t have fancy equipment. All of the photos in the Aim and Fire Friday posts are taken with a Nikon Coolpix E995 unless otherwise noted.

Rhythm, we have it in music and we have it in photography.  Today however, we're only concerned with photography. :)

What is rhythm?  I like to think of it as repetition or a constant/repeating pattern.

Why is it important?  It directs the viewers eye to focus on a specific point, usually this is the horizon line or the point were the pattern disappears or fades into infinity creating visual stimulation.

Conclusion.  Finding rhythm/pattern can be a lot of fun and can really enhance a photo. Once you start looking for it I'm sure you'll find it all around you.  May I suggest you grab your camera, keep your eyes open for rhythm/pattern, and start snapping?  You won't regret it.

P.S. Remember, it doesn't matter what camera you have, this technique works for everyone.  Just look at the pictures below, taken with a Nikon Coolpix about four to five years ago.
