Last Night's Experience


I decided to go out and try some shots with the snow, night time and downtown. I had gotten up around 5 this morning and was out for an hour and a half, things seemed alright and I am not completely dissappointed though things could've been a lot more. The good news is I now have some pretty good high spots for getting shots of the downtown as a landscape, the not so great news is the cloudiness made everything look flat and boring and I know that I could've done a lot better and spent a little more time out but I had promised my husband I would be back in bed by 7 a.m. to cuddle with him. Here are a couple of my shots. Again, I could've done a lot better and tried a lot more to work the creativity, but my fingers and face were going numb and I was worried my camera was too, it was only around 20 degrees last night. I have intentions of trying again before the New Year though, I might give myself another hour of darkness by getting up at 4 a.m. instead of 5 next time.

........being a photographer

This blog will be a bit more difficult, I believe or at least for today since I haven't really done any shooting today. I've loved photography since I could first look through a National Geographic Magazine, which was at a really young age. Now I have my own small business which is moving smoothly while I'm working in an office for my husband's business. My love is mainly with nature and wildlife/animals, but I do not mind at all doing events such as parties and get togethers. Meeting new people always brings a warm feeling for me, and watching how the interact together is also pretty cool. I will try to keep this blog up to date as well as my running blog, but I can not promise anything :)
