flower power

I love my macro lens.

I love the details it captures.

The things you might normally miss.

Plus I love Photoshop, for its ability to transform bright, gaudy colors into something more lucious.

photo safari

I had the opportunity recently to take part in the "photo safari" held by our local Mike's Camera at the Denver Zoo. They brought a bazillion different cameras, lenses, tripods - anything you could possibly imagine. And it was all free to try out. I was like a kid in a candy shop.

I got to try the 24-70mm lens that I've been coveting. Now I want it even more.

I also was able to test-drive a couple of full-frame cameras. It's probably not something I need, but it was fun to try.

But the big thrill was the enormous lenses that had stationed all over the zoo. I was able to just walk up, attach my camera, and click away.


With that 600mm lens I was able to get closer than I ever imagined.

My husband even played photographer and tried out some new equipment as well, while our kids indulged me and let me take lots of pics of them in addition to the animals. All in all it was a fun day. I look forward to the next photo safari in the spring!

happy weekend!

I've so been enjoying this fall weather we've been having lately. Still warm during the day, but cool at night. And no real cold snaps yet so the leaves are hanging on...

Unlike last year at this time:

where did fall go?

2011 calendar is here!

My 2011 desk calendar is now available in my shop!  This year I've included a handmade wooden base, perfect for displaying the unbound pages.  

Each page is printed on cardstock, not photo paper, to ensure they won't curl throughout the year.  And once the month is over, you can trim the bottom away for a perfect little square print to display however you like.

Find them here.

fall in bloom

One of my favorite places to take photographs is the Botanic Gardens in Denver. Every season there is something fabulous to see, and this time of year is no exception.
