Check out my store on Society6!

19 04 2015

Trying my hand at an online store called Society6 to sell my photos on a variety of fun products! All images are available as unframed and framed prints as well as canvases, too, in a variety of different sizes.

I’ll be uploading more later, but there’s plenty to choose from now—prints (unframed, framed and canvas), iPhone/iPad/iPod cases, laptop skins, pillows, tote bags, and greeting cards.

I’m learning as I go and should be able to offer other products such as small area rugs, t-shirts, mugs and even shower curtains. I will be uploading more photos this week so check back often!

Check it out (and support a starving artist while you’re there)! Click on the link below and be sure to look at the list of other products on the left side of the screen.

Repost: Daffodils in my garden

This is one of my favorite daffodil shots. I shoot the majority of my plant portraits in either overcast light or by diffusing the light with my tri-grip diffuser. On this day, the soft sunlight spoke to me and I let it illuminate my subject without any diffusion.

It’s that time again! Revisiting “How to Grow Your Garden Photography Skills”

5 04 2015

It’s that time again! Time to get out your camera (and your macro lens, if you’re fortunate to have one!) and get out in the garden to start capturing images of early spring flowers. (And if you don’t have a tripod, please get one. As much as you may not like toting one around, they are instrumental in capturing really sharp macro images; trust me on this!)

In my front yard garden, I already have purple crocus in bloom and the Hellebores have been blooming since February (hardy and eager plants, those Hellebores!). The tulips will probably be in bloom in a couple of weeks.

In September 2011 I was interviewed and featured on the Nikonusa.com website about photographing gardens. Since the weather is getting warmer every day and early spring flowers are making their appearance in our part of the country, I thought I’d share the article and accompanying photos with you again!
