    Golden Blooms

    golden-blooms

    I have here the last of flower pictures I did last month! I went back to the orchard at golden hour and took more pictures of the blossoms and they were SO. PRETTY. Our mountain laurels started blooming and so did our daisies…so naturally, I got out with my camera and took pictures. ☺  Aren’t they gorgeous, especially in the lighting? I took the pictures of the daisies in the early morning light and AGH it’s so PRETTY!

    Back in April, our apple trees were blooming! The whole orchard was white and pink and oh it was lovely.

    Hi y’all! I am finally back from my very long hiatus…in fact, it was more like a hibernation. XD The past couple of months have been really busy.

Now, summer has arrived on the farm and I am back!  Read more

    Three of our pear trees have been blooming and the other day I thought I’d go out and snap some pictures of it. In the days when I was only a nature photographer, I used to hunt down every single tree or flower I could find with blossoms. My subjects now are mainly people, and while I love portraits, it’s always fun to shoot pure flowers now and again.

    indoor_photography_tips_helpful_inside_beginner_photographer

    Whether you’re shooting people, pets, or petunias (how’s my alliteration?), taking pictures indoors can be confusing and annoying. Some days the pictures may turn out great, and other days…not so much. I used to hate my pictures that I took inside, but I discovered in time that there as an art to it, like everything else. I’ve now done an entire photoshoot inside, not to mention lots of stock photography for my blog. Without further ado, my 3 tips.

    My Three Go-To Lenses

    best_lenses_beginner_photography_photographer_blogger_canon_nikon

    Like many photographers, I’m afraid I’m a bit of a gear-hoarder. It’s known as G.A.S. – Gear Aquisition Syndrome. I believe I have around 5-6 lenses, which is pretty small compared to some of my colleagues! Nonetheless, in my experience hoarding gear, I’ve found some really epic lenses and today I’m going to delve into my favorite three lenses – the ones I always pick up and the first to include when I go on vacation or out on a shoot!
