How to Buy Prints!

One of the things I have been trying to achieve with my business is print sales. I LOVE feeling and holding my images in a frame! There is nothing quite like the translation of an image from a digital blip in cyberspace to a real and tangible object in your home.  For...

Lensbaby released their new, wide-angle version of their Edge lineup of lenses, the Lensbaby Edge 35. These lenses produce a line of sharp focus with gentle fall off into blur on either side of the line. My first Lensbaby favorite was the Edge 80. It is a lens that I...

I love making discoveries when it comes to cameras, and I especially like making discoveries that make my life easier! Last night I was learning from the Sony Artisan extraordinaire, Bob Krist, that you could shoot dually on the rx10 mark 4. The rx 10 is my favorite...

Light and Birds

Images may be purchased HERE. My heart just loves birds, and all things related to trees. As a child, I wanted to be an ornithologist. Flying always seemed like an impossible dream, and I wanted to sing so pretty in the morning. I drove my parents nuts always wanting...
How to make a cinemagraph

How to make a cinemagraph

I just love cinemagraphs. My favorite type is those that look like photographs and then, without warning, they start to move! This unexpected movement causes people to jump in surprise–think of the painting you might see in a haunted house where the eyes blink...
The Story Behind the Photo: Roaring Prairie

The Story Behind the Photo: Roaring Prairie

This image was created in one of those serendipitous ways that only happen when you are not trying. I was looking to create an image for a tripod company, Vanguard, and quickly put a plan into action involving my children. My daughter sported a dancing gown and ballet...
My Gear: The Cameras and Lenses I Can’t Live Without

My Gear: The Cameras and Lenses I Can’t Live Without

Let’s talk gear! I am, admittedly, not a tech-brain. As a nearly 100% right-brained person, I can safely say that the guts of the gear only matter to me if they aren’t working. 🙂 That said, I LOVE my gear! Cameras and lenses get me to the place where I can create the...

Images may be purchased HERE. I really enjoy getting away and finding little stories in the country. For years, I have used my phone to spontaneously capture scenes that moved me, but the limitations of a phone have often been frustrating. The reach of the wide lens...

Our Daily Bread

Our Daily Bread

This bread is what we call our Daily Bread. It is fast enough to make on a whim and healthy enough to eat everyday. I sprout my grain, which we grow on our farm, but you can skip the first few steps and buy sprouted grain online. This bread is heavier, but it has a...
Prairie Backlight

Prairie Backlight

It is no secret that I adore backlit images. ‘Backlit’ refers to my subject being placed between my camera and the sun or my light source. This set up can cause some issues when metering your camera manually. The sensor can get thrown by the excessive...

The Westcott FLEX is pretty amazing. It is a flexible LED panel that can be held or clipped anywhere. It it water and weather proof too, so I intend to get outdoors with it as well. Every year I continue a jpeg project where and I shoot and print images that are...
