New Year, New Things

So it’s 2019. Already. Next thing you know, it’ll be 2020. Doesn’t 2020 have kind of a science fiction feel to it? Or is it just me, being a child of the 1970s? Anyway, it’s only been 7-8 months since I’ve posted. New things are coming this year, though, and this will be my main […]

some photography : Fujifilm X100F

So I got a new camera! I upgraded from my Fujifilm X100S to the newer and much-improved X100F. I had a love/hate relationship with the X100S. It had a lot of good qualities but I just could not get to a point where I loved it. I loved the idea of it, but with practical […]

more rescues!

Here are some of the rescues who weren’t at the Valentine’s Day sessions. These guys go to a vet that’s local to me, so I head over there when I can and grab their photos.

2018. catch up. rethink.

Another new year. It’s here! One week in, already. I have been neglecting this blog, social media and my photography website for so long, but it always seems to end up like that, doesn’t it? This year, though, really seems to be the year where I either do something with all of the bits and […]

fun with Corel Painter

I spent one dreary winter-ish day (we haven’t really HAD winter in Georgia this year) this week painting in Corel Painter. This is an older photo of Ezra that was used. I followed along with Heather the Painter‘s KelbyOne class, which is totally worth it. I am hoping to get her DVDs eventually and I […]

some test shots of Buddy and Munchkin

And news! I am preparing to start a very small photography business! (I know…I’m all over the place.) I am pretty excited though! I’d like to photograph mostly dogs and adults. Let’s face it, we have plenty of excellent photographers around here to do weddings, seniors, families, babies and maternity. Not that I would turn […]

Dodie lately.

My pug, my best friend of 14 1/2 years, will be 15 on Wednesday. I’ve been working on trying to document her life at this stage with my camera. I don’t want to forget anything and no one really knows how long we’ll have her. It’s so hard watching your beloved friend get so old, […]

some photography and life musings

I really want to nail my lighting down.This is the thing: I’ve been doing photography some form or another “seriously” for about 15 or 16 years, starting with my stepfather’s Nikon N2020 (wish I still had that camera). I made my own darkroom in the bathroom, worked on learning to hand color, took tons of […]

from from the mamiya afd

My friend, Lea, has loaned me her Mamiya AFD. It’s a big, awesome camera. The only problem is that it has a line going across some of the negatives. So I looked at the film back, in particular the film insert, and found a metal piece that was slightly bent. I straightened it out and […]

Wow.

Well, it’s been a month and a half (and then some) since I made a blog post? See, I know how I am. This is typical. But it’s not that nothing is going on. I’ve got too much going on – but not really. It’s all in my head. I’m the BEST at thinking up […]
