Photography Update – Rebel Girl

I have noticed a few changes in the past few weeks with my photography. Folders in my picture files that were organized into various genres, set aside to post for later, are now half empty. I am getting pickier. Ones I thought would make good posts are gone into the recycle bin.

I am trying to take more interesting shots. We are stopping at places we would never have went before, just pulling over to see what might make a good picture.

I have a hard time remembering things and have a notebook ready to jot down various things. That way I can just look it up. It is also great to take down places you pass and don’t have time to stop.

Nature is beautiful, but I am not writing off taking pictures of objects, like magazines do a set. I think next week I will spend some time with my tripod and lights. Oh, but aren’t clouds amazing?

Grasses can make for a great photo too:

Just a small update on my progress. I am getting there slowly. πŸ™‚

  1. I think this something we all go through initially, to delete a photo equated to
    something akin to orphaning a child, but it is sign of progress and should be
    embraced as such.
    Your progress is obvious, well done.

    1. Thanks, Rezinate. That means a lot, coming from you! πŸ™‚ It did feel a bit like orphaning a child, much like when I donated all my books, except I knew someone else would be enjoying them.

  2. Nice clouds πŸ™‚ I have been promising myself I would empty some of the less worthy shots from my folders. Sounds like it’s a good move. I’ll start tomorrow πŸ˜‰

  3. Love the photos. It is good to be able to do a hard cull but there is always that photo that isn’t quite right. Perhaps it is a bit blurred or not framed right or holds a special memory. Keep up the good work & enjoy experimenting. I love clouds too β˜πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks, Bushboy! We just got a photo editing program to help salvage some photos that need it, but I have no idea how to use it yet. That will be a long time coming! I appreciate the encouragement. Clouds are awesome! πŸ™‚

      1. Just find the stuff you use most of the time and learn those. Use the online tutorials if the program has those. I do that if I want to do something special to a photo. I still don’t use about 65% of my edit program.
