I am a wife, mom, grandma. I hike, swim, eat cookie-dough ice cream, enjoy photography, procrastinate. I hope to enhance some of these characteristics and improve on others. I hope to write a better “About Me’ before the end of March 2013!
I set up this blog to provide a structure for a daily photo assignment as well as a diary of sorts. My January project was to shoot daily with my 50mm in order to better understand how to best utilize its features. I found that a more dramatic DOF and flattering portraits are the highlights. Unfortunately, I just broke this lens. Fortunately, I found a tutorial that might let me put it back together.
February’s assignment is Hearts. I took a trip in the middle of the month and found myself without internet access, thus letting the blog slip away a bit. I hope to be back on track to make the most of the remaining days. There are a few “cliche” images I’d like to produce, including the Book Pages and also the Reflection in a Drop.
I’ve not fleshed out my remaining assignments. My goals are to become more familiar with my equipment and to expand my creativity. I will fill in the upcoming months as I determine what I wish to accomplish.
