Stretch Yourself Creatively

Stretch Yourself Creatively

Sometimes I find that I become a tad complacent with my photography. Why? Complacency is comfortable. It is like curling up in an old leather recliner with a blanket that your aunt crocheted for you a dozen Christmases ago! It feels warm and safe! The problem with...
Photograph What You Love

Photograph What You Love

When someone asks me what type of photographer I am, I often hesitate. I like to shoot many genres: street, architecture, birds, and landscapes, to name just a few. Some may say that photographing such a wide variety of subjects makes you a “jack of many trades,...
Workflow and a Glass of Wine

Workflow and a Glass of Wine

The other day I was looking back through my archives for some sample images for an article I was writing. As I flipped through old photos, I started thinking about my workflow and about how I select images. It is amazing what you find when you re-visit old shoots. For...
My Street Photography Definition

My Street Photography Definition

I posted an image a while back, and a viewer told me that it wasn’t “street photography.” When I took the photo, I was living in a small, gulf coast town in Mississippi. Not exactly the big city! I captured the picture at the beach, not in an urban setting. It is a...

New Orleans, also know as the Crescent City, is one of my favourite places to photograph on the Gulf Coast. The city is full of interesting people and I never find it hard to capture an interesting shot. While we have been in Mississippi I have visited the city well...

San Francisco – October 2014

I was lucky enough to accompany my husband on a business trip he had to San Francisco this month. And although the weather was hotter than it was in Mississippi (minus the humidity), we had a wonderful time. A special thank you to Holly for showing me the coast. The...
