PHOTOGRAPHY UNWRAVELED


Ever had the experience where you want to rip your camera apart when you have a blurry picture of your active child? Ever wonder why your subjects sometimes look jaundice? And what the heck is RAW? There is so much to know about photography in order to get the images you want, even if you're a casual shooter taking snapshots of your family and friends, and unfortunately, there's also a lack of simple, easy to understand, and most importantly, FREE resources out there. If you'd like some answers to these, and many more questions, check out my other blog, Photography Unraveled. My goal with this blog is to use my experience from working in a camera store and shooting pictures (some as a hobby, some as a business) to help everyone from the "Soccer Mom" to the "Hobbyist" get the images they've always wanted. Check it out!

Christmas Pictures

I figured that in the Spirit of Christmas, I would give you all a gift, a new post! You would think it would take something less important than Christmas for me to post some pictures, but that's Winter for you. I just don't get out to shoot as much in the Winter. A true gift to you though, is me introducing you to homemade Bokeh shots! Read on readers!

Here's a little taste of the Christmas Season!



These above two are my first experiments with my homemade Bokeh lens. It's really easy, and you get some fun results. These two shots are pictures of Christmas lights in my neighborhood. I rigged my lens so that the lights showed up as stars. You can manipulate it to any shape you want! It's abstract, but with a little creativity, can produce some awesome results. These ones don't count as awesome in my book, but hey, they were my first ones. This weekend I'll spend more time with it and post my results. Check out how to do it yourself HERE and have some fun this Christmas!

Those are really cool! I know I've got some black construction paper around here somewhere. I'll find some before we take our Christmas tree down, oooh, and maybe go see the Christmas lights at the park. Hmmmmm, maybe for FHE tomorrow . . .

Hey Bryan, Remember Me? I found your blog through Tyler and Stephs. I just have to say the pictures on here look AMAZING! I had no idea you were into Photography. Do you take pictures for other people too?
