4th of July…Fireworks…FAIL!

July 06, 2010
one: My sister came up to visit this weekend. We had a great time laying by the pool and listening to live music at one of the local Irish pubs. I’m actually surprised that I haven’t tried downloading any music tonight. two: Last night, we found ourselves on a hospital parking deck to view the fireworks. Unfortunately, we were over a mile away from the fireworks and I only brought my 50 mm f/1.8 lens. I also failed to bring my tripod. I took close to 400 images…I saved THREE! We should have just gotten sparklers and called it a day. three: I have $50 to spend at TJ Maxx (a...
Scavenger Hunt Sunday

July 04, 2010
Happy 4th of July!!! I’m so excited to be hosting Scavenger Hunt Sunday this month. Because I’m hosting, I’m going to try using Mr. Linky. If you participated this week, just click on the linky at the bottom of this post, and point me (and anyone else that’s playing along) back to your blog. So here is my interpretation on this past week’s items:  1. Shutter SpeedISO 100, f/2.8, 1/1ooo sec. I took this shot at the zoo last weekend.

SOOC Saturday: One Night in Philly

July 03, 2010
My sister is staying with us this weekend, and we are in between a day at the pool and going out later tonight, so I will make this quick. I took this shot earlier this week while in Philadelphia with the intentions of potentially using it for my “night scene” shot. I decided against it, but when I pulled it back up today, I liked it enough to share. ISO 1600, f/2.8, 28mm, 1/10 sec. I’m going to get going for now, but stay tuned for tomorrow’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items (I’m hosting this month, so I may try a linky). At some point this week, I”ll also be...
Before & After

July 02, 2010
I am so behind on my Before & After editing challenges, but I’ve been doing more of my own work lately so I felt it was important to develop that side of my skill set (that and my day job has been keeping me busy)…I hope you understand.Before & Afters were a major part of the early days of this blog (you know, 8-9 months ago) so I’m always happy to accept new editing challenges. If you have a challenge for me, just shoot me an email (click the Contact Me page) – seriously. Anyways, Denise sent me an email request a couple of weeks ago to add texture to the...
