Tutorial!  Can’t wait to see what you’d do!

Tutorial! Can’t wait to see what you’d do!

Moments That Matter: lesson 8: topic 3: the rest The first photo I chose as one of my favorites from the lessons. I’m curious to see what you would do with it. I realize it doesn’t meet the “shows eyes” criteria though! The second photo I’m curious to see what more you would do with it beyond the basic editing I did. I would also like to see how you would do your conv... »

Moments That Matter: lesson 8: topic 2: the basics I uploaded two of the same one so they would show up side by side. I took my daughter’s 4th birthday pictures and used the tips in the editing lesson to fix them up a bit! I am in love with the outcome of her birthday photos and am so grateful to Robyn for everything she has taught me 🙂 It was taken at F 5.6 1/1600 and ISO 200. It was a bit ... »

Moments That Matter: lesson 7: topic 1: storytelling I’m baaaack! Although only for a short time since I only have one lesson left 🙁 Telling a story with you photos is where I sort of struggle a bit. I tend to upload photos to Facebook with no rhyme or reason, I wonder how much influence that has on how many likes you get on a photo (because you know, that’s all that matters 😉 ) Took M... »

Finally able to use what I’ve learned!

Finally able to use what I’ve learned!

8 week online workshop lesson 6 Thinking lifestyle The last two days have finally been nice enough to get outside!!

Spring!! (almost)

Spring!! (almost)

8 week online workshop lesson 5 2: Breaking the Rules. It’s finally above freezing which means the 8,000 feet of snow we’ve gotten is rapidly melting. My 3 year old spotted the puddles days ago, despite the fact that we’ve been telling her it’s still too cold to splash around she was persistent. Given it’s still pretty chilly out, the fun only lasted a few minutes. I ... »

Science Museum

Science Museum

8 week online workshop lesson 5 1: Seeing creativly The science museum was quite a challenge in low light. I did manage to get a few good photos out of it though. I spent the time trying to think about different angles and how to get different shots. The first shot I really liked, the second one was a no – go. It looks too weird. I’ll need more practice with getting low. ISO 3200 (ouch... »

How I know she’s done.

How I know she’s done.

8 week online workshop lesson 4 Low light I’m posting an extra because it’s silly. This is how I know she’s done. I was trying to get her to say or do funny things to get a good smile out of her… This is what she gives me. Stinker. »

Indoor light

Indoor light

8 week online workshop lesson 5 Indoor/low light Indoor and low light is my specialty, and not by choice. With the cold winter and low light scenarios inside I spent much of the 21 day course battling the low light conditions I deal with every single time I pull my camera out right now. So this challenge was a bit of a review – thankfully cause the last few took some work! But I very very ra... »

8 week online workshop lesson 4 4: The Colour of Light. I did this activity last week but never got a chance to upload them. It’s still super cold so I decided to shoot from inside. When I looked out I saw my vacant and empty hummingbird feeder. Chose that as my topic. It was interesting to me to see the effect on the color throughout the day as I changed my WB settings. The last 3 were take... »
