From Clouds to Sun

Posted on Updated on

These were madeΒ on the same day – it was the first warm day of the spring, before the ice formations melted (those photos are forthcoming). The second photo has a strange, but intentional focal point – I’m still unsure about how I feel about it πŸ™‚ The first photo was near Cana Lighthouse in Door County, and the second photo was made at Cave Point County Park, also Door County. small_MG_0840-Edit small_MG_0556

Dog and Blue Jeans…In Black & White

Posted on

This dog was precious! I took this while 2nd shooter on an engagement shoot – this couple was adorable, but I couldn’t take my eyes off their pup. This was taken with my old Canon 30D, but edited using my new LR/PS CC subscription πŸ™‚

Here’s another one – the lighting was harsh and the dog’s nose a little blurry, but I still like this photo:

So I’ve had a few months with my new camera…

Now that I’ve had some time with my new camera, and have been learning all I can about editing in LR/PS CC, I am finally ready to start rolling out a few photos. Let’s start with this one: It didn’t make the cut for submitting to my local camera club’s salon, but I so wanted to use it…maybe I’ll edit it up a bit more and submit it next year.

This photo was taken near Cana Lighthouse in Door County, WI. I sure am enjoying my new Canon 6d πŸ™‚

D’oh!

I hoped to share some lovely new pics from my lovely new Canon 6d and three lovely new lenses. I received the lenses and flash a few days ago, and have been patiently waiting for my camera to arrive.

It arrived today. I could hardly wait to open the box! So much planning went into my selection of the camera, lenses, and flash, and I couldn’t believe the day had finally come when I could hold it in my hands and feel the smooth shutter release under my finger, just waiting for me to press it.

I pulled all contents from the box, carefully removed the plastic and unwrapped the manuals, looking for the quick start guide. And there it was, sandwiched between two manuals, the sight of it filling me with excitement at the thought of what – or whom – would be the subject of my first photograph.

Step 1 – insert battery (check!)
Step 2 – insert SD card…

Dang. Guess I should have ordered one of those.

More to come soon πŸ™‚
