Creativity through photography

The photography bug has bit me this summer (along with several hundred mosquitos). Here are a few pictures I'm quite proud of:

Goldfinches at the Feeder

Sunflower with Cicada

Pollinators at Work
There's a lot to learn with photography. While I understand the concepts of aperture and shutter speed, I'm still refining my working knowledge how to use them to get the effects I want. I enjoy doing pictures of nature and quilts. Pictures of people tend to draw you in more and tell a story.

  1. The goldfinch at the feeder is a great photo! Nice work capturing the cicada and the bee in the other two pics--I'm guessing that wasn't easy?

    1. One way to do it is to take a lot of pictures! At least with a digital camera, it's cheap to take a whole bunch and delete the bad ones!
