Thanksgiving 2010

This Thanksgiving I decided to go beyond just snapshots of the family and try to really capture what goes into creating one of our family's Thanksgivings. Hope you enjoy.


I Am Coming Back...

I've made the decision to attempt a 365 starting in 2011.  I have been all but ignoring this blog, although I don't ignore my photography.

Over the past year my photography has taken a shift. Lately, I have been spending more time working on portraits than on my nature photography.  I never thought I would like taking portraits, but I do. And I can make more money at least for now.

Focusing on portraiture is not enough for me. I need to get back to my roots.  One way I am going to do this is by doing a 365.  I am sure there will be some portraits without a year of pictures, but it will also force me to go back to nature shots, which is my original love.

I am really hoping to gain a lot of experience with a 365. I am excited and ready to start, but I know how much work one is. There are so many days where there just isn't enough time to really set up a shot or look for something interesting. This biggest problem, however, isn't finding time to take a picture, but finding the time to get them off my camera, onto the computer, then uploaded to a site.  I am ready to do it. I know I will be loading pictures onto this blog, but am also toying with loading them onto my Facebook page and Flickr (but that's 3 times as much work, so...?). Luckily, Blogger has made it much easier to load large photos. I no longer need to go through a multi-step process to get large photos.

I'm hoping you will join me in this photographic journey through the year 2011.
