Weekends Meanderings

This weekend I found a quaint little hole in the wall near where I live that is listed as an Andalusian Trail and it held all sorts of cool things such as old barns and dilapidated wood buildings and even an old mule. Here are the highlights from my trip.

Then the next day, it was still so beautiful, I shot some more random things such as the dogs and the yard.

Finish the Sentence

I got this questionaire from the David Cross blog. It's one of the 10 I follow on a daily ritual!

Finish the Sentence..."

My favorite photography accessory (lights, modifier, bag, tripod) is
My Lumiquest Pocket Bouncer - makes all sized rooms be filled with light! And I love my Domke F1x bag and my ProLensWear Large Lens Bag. LOVE them!

I’ve learned the most from..
Reading the Strobist blog, Scott Kelby's blog, Lighting Essentials, Zack Arias/OneLight photos and surfing for hours through the Flickr pools!!! It doesn't seem I will ever be able afford to go to a workshop so instead I spend hours reading, looking and trying things out for myself.

If I could go anywhere in the world it would be_____ because….
New Zealand - gotta be amazing sunrises and sunsets

My most-used Photoshop add-on, plugin, action set (etc) is
I love my action sets- most all especially the Phaunt Free Pack.

I love the fact that Photoshop
Does everything and more- things I have yet to learn!

I hate the fact that Photoshop
Costs so effin' much and doesn't come as a bundle with the new Lightroom. It really needs to be PhotoLightroomShop.

If I could turn back the clock 10 years
I would have gotten a DSLR then and not been afraid to move forward.

In 10 years
I'd love to be successful and have a full plate of bookings and have evolved into something special

If I could give one piece of advice it would be
Just take the damn photo but think OUT of the box! Don't stand- squat... Don't do it straight on, choose a funky angle... Focus and re-focus.....ENJOY and envision the end product.
