One photo a day challenge: Day 153. Lately I have been experimenting with using more artificial lighting in my photography. I have really enjoyed the flexibility the Lume Cube lights I now have in my tool kit have afforded me. I have used these lights to make photographing in low lighting inside the house possible. The lights have also made photographing outside at night possible. And I have used these lights as… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 144. Today I sat in a field of grass. I looked around. There were several different types of wildflowers growing in the grassy field. I noticed that the wildflowers were growing in a particular way. Each kind of wildflower was growing almost completely separate from the other types of wildflowers. And each type of wildflower was itself growing in clusters. There was a large section of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 129. Today I wanted to focus my one photo a day project on one single subject. I decided to choose one of the flowers we had brought home recently and photograph just that one plant. I selected one that I hadn’t photographed yet. I brought the flower in and set it on our counter. I turned the lights off in the room I was working in… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 121. Today I continued with my theme of photographing our flowers. We went out and bought several new flowers to plant at home. I am always looking for something different. Something that catches my eye. I often like to get plants that I have never had before. This flower is very different than other flowers I have gotten. I can’t recall ever seeing anything quite like… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 119. Today I did something I don’t do very often. I used artificial light while photographing outside. We had been talking about lighting and using flash the other day in my photography class I am teaching. I talked about all the different ways that you can use flash and other types of lights to create great photographs. And I stated that I primarily use flash and… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 118. I know I have probably written this sentence many times on this blog, but I am going to write it again. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I especially love the time of year where everything growing wild is just starting to come back to life. Leaves are emerging and flowers are just getting ready to blossom. It is a magical… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 115. Yesterday was a gorgeous day. It was a great day for getting outside. The day was a perfect representation of what you want in early spring. If you are like me one thing early spring means to me is blooming flowers. Plants and nature coming back to life and growing after the winter thaw. I love plants and flowers. They are amazing in so many… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 101. I spent the winter trying to keep some of the flowers I planted in pots last spring and summer alive. It is unclear how many have survived. But there are some that are clearly showing signs of life. Some plants are beginning to grow new stems and leaves. Two plants that are of the same variety seem to be doing particularly well. This Gerbera Daisy… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 97. I love plants and flowers. But I am never very successful with keeping house plants alive. Maybe I am not good at following directions. Perhaps I am just not attentive enough. Or I may just not pay close enough attention. Taking care of a house plant seems so simple on its face. But there does need to be a degree of attention paid. I need… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 95. It is a beautiful day. I walked around the yard just to see how spring was progressing. Green is emerging from more and more places. Places it has been hidden away for the winter. Hidden for the winter but not hidden forever. Now. Now the green life of spring is making its return. More green. More growth. Life reemerging in even more places. And best… Read More
