Stark Mill

I took a trip to New England recently and took a walk around all the old mill buildings. I love the color of the brick against the blue sky as well as the green tones in the statue.

This was really the only picture of fish that came out good cause they were still in the tank. The newer version of the camera I have has an aquarium function, I wonder how well it works. I'd like to figure out the best way to get good quality pics at an aquarium, I don't get to go too often so I can't practice.

Georgia Aquarium

I went to the Georgia Aquarium over the weekend, this is a must see!!! Definitely a reason to vacation in Atlanta! It's also across from the Coca-Cola plant. But the aquarium, is the worlds largest and also has the worlds largest shark, the whale shark. The size of the tanks here are mesmerizing, they keep them so clean as well. It was kind of hard taking pictures of some of the fish cause they move so fast and my camera isn't the most capable of those types of pictures.

Lucky Oliver Shuts Down

stock photos, royalty free stock photography, photo search

The stock photography site, Lucky Oliver has shut down. I was just starting to get into selling my photographs on their site. They had such a great looking site, with great photography and a nice setup. It's too bad. You can read a letter from the owner on their site here.

St. Marks Lighthouse

I went to visit St. Marks Lighthouse over the weekend. It was so beautiful there, lots of undisturbed nature! Saw a bunch of gators as well. I loved how the reflection looked in the water of the lighthouse.

Petting Zoo

I took this picture at the Central Florida Zoo. I love natural light! I am definitely not an expert yet with lighting indoors. I like how the light made the color of the barn stand out.

DIY Macro Studio

So I found this post on Strobist that gives you information on how to build your own macro studio. I found it very helpful because I had been getting into using the macro function on my camera, but it seemed like every time I would take a picture it would come out grainy...I didn't have the best lighting and I am just learning about it. So I followed the directions, I already had all the materials needed and I set up shop. Sure enough my pictures came out much better. But I don't have the greatest lights, I'll need to get some more if I want to take pictures when it's dark out. I was relying on the natural light. I'll post up some pictures of what my studio looks like and the pictures I took from it.
