What do you do after a hard rain?  Well! You to take pictures of course.

I don’t have a dedicated Marco lens, so that means it’s a bit harder to get GREAT macro pics, since I’m using lens extenders.

It’s fun to run out, take as many pics as you can, in a short amount of time and see what you get in the end.

Working on learning my lens extenders which changes the focus of your lens so you can get closer and do some macro photography.  They aren’t as GOOD as a macro lens, but for now, they shall do!

Best of September

Ah, Sept, almost fall!  My fave time of the year.

2010

These are my FIRST pictures with my Canon Rebel SX/DSLR – Previously, anything before Sept 2010 was scanned from my film photos (still a Rebel, I’m a Canon girl)

I spent 7 weeks in Milliknocket, ME doing my clinicals.  The last two shots of 2013 are my first “long exposure” shots.

I was at my 1st New Mexico assignment for all of Sept of 2015 – what a great area too!

The below picture was taken atop an inactive volcano – in that view, you can see Texas in the far distance.

Best of July

2016

Not ever a busy “picture” month for me, since I’d usually be working my butt off.  I did have a busy July in 2017!

I always get super nervous about taking pictures for weddings, and engagements, and even just family snaps.  My friend, Dave asked me to take the photos for his engagement as well as his wedding – thankfully, both were great!  Below is the rings photo for their engagement.

Stonington, ME

2017-hdr-IMG_7661

I am not a bargain hunter by any  means.  We have a super small house and don’t have much “stuff”.  But one afternoon, I was out of work early and went for a ride.  I hit up Searsport and the whole thrift shop thing.  I bought stuff for other people, and took a boat load of fun pictures.

In July of 2017 we welcomed to the fold, Echo.  Storm, our 15yo dog, passed away and Jules really wanted another dog.  And here she is: Echo.  The biggest pain in the arse ever.  No, she’s a pretty good dog, has her quirks, but then again, we’re quirky!

4th of July in Stonington, ME!  Wow, I wasn’t expecting how much fun I’d have.  Food on the pier, plenty of things to take pics of and fireworks!  I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon Stapleton, from Reuters Mag that day, and we talked settings and camera – he snapped pics from the pier and I, well I followed the locals.

Moose!  This is a little one.  This is a scanned photo, in fact, I had my old film Rebel with  me this day.

When I came back from New Mexico, I had gotten a new lens – since I hike, and need to haul water, etc with  me.  I wanted a more “all in one” lens.  I picked up a Tamron 18-270mm.  It’s a midgrade lens, and sometimes you get some noise.  The editing program I use though, I can easily get rid of the noise.  This is one of my first shots with it.  I really love the lens.

ECHO!  The newest addition to our family (and the LSAT for a while) – yeah, if ONLY she stayed this size!

A lot about photography is about timing, and sometimes luck!  I was lucky to spend time in the MidCoast area, and the rainbow shots were 1000% luck of timing. 

4th of July–Stonington, ME

I got to spend the 4th of July working, and then taking pictures.  Stonington had fun for the 4th – food on the docks, and fireworks… I met Shannon Stapleton, a photographer who works for Reuters on the dock.  We talked photography and the Island.

This wonderful rainbow appears often over the water if its been foggy and clears or raining because of the way the sun catches the water crystals in the air.

The theme this year was: PIRATES!

I’ve been working on blur and focus – my new camera works different my old one – finding that balance has been interesting.

I have never taken pictures of fireworks before.  So I googled.  I do not have a trigger bulb release.  I had to use a 2 second delay with means I had to time the shots out really well.  Or, leave it to luck.  I think it was 50/50

I played around with zooming in and out – the challenge in that is – focus.
