Eric & Kim, 4.5.2014

6 04 2014
Yesterday I photographed the wedding of my neighbors Eric & Kim at the Osprey Point Inn in Rock Hall on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Beautiful weather, lovely venue and fun, relaxed atmosphere—it was truly a joy to photograph their big day! For this outdoor session, I used my new Nikon D800 and my bright and gorgeous Nikkor 85mm 1.8 (first time I’ve used it). Gotta get used to my RAW files being a whopping 45mb, though! More photos to come…

Revisiting “How to Grow Your Garden Photography Skills”

24 03 2014

It’s (almost) that time again! Time to get out your camera (and your macro lens, if you’re fortunate to have one!) and get out in the garden to start capturing images of early spring flowers. (And if you don’t have a tripod, please get one. As much as you may not like toting one around, they are instrumental in capturing really sharp macro images; trust me on this!)

In my front yard garden, I already have purple crocus in bloom and the Hellebores have been blooming since February (hardy and eager plants, those Hellebores!). The tulips will probably be in bloom in a couple of weeks. Even though spring officially started this past Thursday, apparently Mother Nature has different ideas for us—snow is predicted for our area this coming Tuesday! (UG)

Two years ago I was interviewed and featured on the website about photographing gardens. Since the weather is getting warmer every day and early spring flowers are making their appearance in our part of the country, I thought I’d share the article and accompanying photos with you again!

The Value of the Blank Canvas

Great article on this recently “Fresh Pressed” blog!

The title of this post isn’t meant to be symbolic – I literally mean the value of standing in front of a blank canvas, ready to be painted.  It is a wonderful feeling to sense the potential of the untouched space – the untrodden field of newly-fallen snow.

It is also a bit (quite?) scary to begin something from nothing.  Why?  Because the process that ensues from the first brushstroke (or the first sentence of a book, or…) can feel like walking over coals – or quicksand.  We can’t help but have a vision for what we want this blank space to look like, but we know from experience that what we envision in our heads is virtually never what results – it is simply a starting point.  Getting to the completed product takes work; it takes slogging through cruddy, muddled thinking and…
