photography tips

I'm in no way a professional photographer but somedays I like to pretend that I am.  Over the years I've taken a few classes and spent a lot of time taking a lot of bad photographs to learn how to take a few good ones.  That's the cool thing about photography and especially in the age of digital; you don't have to be a professional to take good, ar at least above average, photographs.  

Here are some of the things that I've found have had the most impact on the quality of my photographs.

Anyone else have other tips?  Feel free to add.  I am always looking for ways to improve on my photography skills.


  1. How about a camera recommendation? We're thinking about purchasing a DSLR this year, and my husband is researching Canon vs. Nikon, but I'm always a sucker for the personal testimonials from people I know. Or people I "know." You know.

  2. I think I love you. :) No, really - this blog feels like watching a cool show and sitting on my couch thinking I could probably (maybe?) be creative because you are.

    Or, you are expressive in different ways than I am, so I "hang out" with this exotic creature and hope that some of it will rub off.

    At the very least, I can forward your posts to my husband, who also knows how to let his creativity come out through the works of his hands.

    Mine resides mainly in my head. Somebody asked if I collect anything, and I said, "Yes. Ideas."

    Meanwhile: Clio Is So Cute!!!!!!!!!!! CUTE. She is just *so* *cute.* I love think I love her, too. :)

  3. Ha ha, like Cathy, I'm also hoping that a little exotic glamour may rub off if I just lurk around here for long enough!

    I am definitely in the market for a new camera as my current strategy, which consists of point 1 of your plan, is causing storage and battery consumption problems with my ancient camera!
